Linn has announced the availability of its Selekt DSM, an all-new network music player that promises to deliver a tactile and beautiful music experience for audiophiles.

The Selekt DSM is highly versatile allowing for various configurations either at the time of purchasing or add to it at a later date.

For example, the basic Select DSM as a streaming source is available for $7,995 RRP. Or order it as an integrated amplifier for $9,995 RRP.  Or you can purchase the Selekt DSM with Linn's Katalyst DAC for $11,995 RRP. But if you want the lot, or as an 'all-in-one', the package includes Selekt DSM streamer, Integrated Amp, and Katalyst DAC for $13,995 RRP.

As for the human touch element, Gilad Tiefenbrun, Linn's Managing Director told StereoNET:

We love the clarity of digital music, but we also love the tactility of physical records. It’s easy to feel we’ve lost touch with the immersive experience of playing a vinyl record – the LP selection, the lift-lower, the anticipation during those first pops and clicks – and that playing music requires only a swipe and a tap.

Selekt DSM revolutionises our physical interaction with digital music; every aspect is precision engineered for a tactile and enriched listening experience.

Gilad is referring to the Selekt DSM's jewel-like dial and smart buttons which can be personalised to your preference. The glass dial begins to glow when approached and turns with watch-like precision in response to a touch.

Crafted to feel like piano-keys, the customisable 'smart buttons' respond to your programming, and the onyx-black OLED display responds with detailed music information.

Linn were early adopters of DSP, and they refer to their implementation as 'Space Optimisation'. With this technology built-in, Selekt DSM will adjust the sound and optimise it for your room acoustics.

As stunning to look at it as it is to use, the Selekt DSM features stylish machined vents for natural cooling, chromed feet, and a plaque celebrating its handbuilt in Glasgow origin.

Linn Selekt DSM is available now.
