Now you can enjoy Linn quality sound in every room of your home. Incorporating Linn’s proven, best-in-class DSM streaming technology, Kustom DSM provides four or eight zones of audio from one compact, rack-mountable product.

A highly scaleable solution, connect as many Kustom DSM products together as you need to enjoy music throughout your entire home. Kustom DSM can also be combined with any Linn system within the same multi-room system, enabling you to select different levels of Linn performance depending on how you use the space and enjoy an even more immersive and enriching listening experience.

Kustom DSM can be integrated with Crestron and Control4 systems, so you can enjoy Linn as part of a wider smart home automation system. It also works with Kazoo, Linn’s control app, available on your smart phone, tablet or laptop, so you always have a way to access your music to hand.

Kustom DSM is housed in a 1U chassis, designed to fit into a standard 19” rack (mounting brackets provided) or be placed on a shelf or in a cupboard using the feet provided. LED indicators on the front panel show the status and mapping of each zone at a glance.

Contact a Linn Custom Installer to find out how you can integrate this into your home and enjoy Linn quality sound throughout.
