Since 2007, Linn has been making critically acclaimed music streamers. This is Linn’s still current second best Network Player, the Akurate DS (version DS/3) widely considered one of the best digital sources on the market today. Not much out there compares under $15,000.
This Akurate DS streamer is in excellent condition, comes with a remote and is finished in black, which rarely shows up for sale. (most are silver)
This is a high quality no compromise source. Effortless detail and
coherence and not a trace of harshness, brightness or any (negative) digital-like signature. Has the following features:
• Streams any digital source over a standard network
• Supports virtually any digital format up to 24-bit 192 kHz
• Integrates seamlessly with Tidal & Qobuz lossless streaming * Streams over 100,000 internet radio stations FOR FREE!
• On-board volume control for direct connection to a power amp if required
• Analogue RCA and XLR outputs for connection to pre- or power amps
• Space Optimisation built-in (digitally equalizes the sound to compensate for the dimensions of your room in the bass frequencies) *Katalyst DAC architecture--A major sonic step forward!
The Katalyst DAC and circuitry far surpass previous models, giving you precise digital to analog decoding and deeper insights into the music.
Space Optimisation is an amazing feature unique to Linn streamers that uses the exact specifications of your room (user input) and your speaker model to calculate and remove room mode resonances in the digital domain for perfect bass response.
