…a high-performance offering unlike anything else on the market.
1. Choose your enclosure
First, choose your enclosure design: either Classic Hub, or the deluxe, higher-performance Edition Hub.
Classic Hub features powder-coated, folded aluminium casework mounted atop an 8mm-thick, machined-aluminium base.
Classic Hub possesses a tactile central control dial, and an array of six programmable ‘smart’ buttons for convenient, one-touch access to favourite playlists, artists, albums, or inputs. With their intuitive operation, these interfaces encourage physical interaction with your system.
A broad range of connectivity ensures that Classic Hub can receive and deliver audio from any source imaginable; with a high-performance, integrated, analogue-to-digital conversion stage accepting anything from turntables to CD players, and a host of digital connections allowing connection to video streaming devices, games consoles, and Blu-ray players – ensuring you get tremendous sound quality from anything you connect to your Selekt DSM.
Edition Hub is a superior-quality enclosure, featuring an all-machined construction for improved rigidity, interior isolation, and elevated aesthetic appeal – with sleek sight lines, concealed joins and understated luxury at the fore.
Providing both requisite heat management and high design appeal, the primary vent of Edition Hub is precision-cut into its aluminium plate lid. The vent itself is evocative of a wave, with each aperture cut at an angle, and only every second one machined all the way through. When viewed from different angles, this wave motif morphs and ripples – with myriad reflections projected from its various finishes and surfaces.
Edition Hub features a much-improved, eye-catching control dial. Its precision, turned-stainless-steel bearing ensures silky, tactile rotation when adjusting volume; and the photo-etched steel halo around its edge allows cool, sharp light to emanate from the one hundred individual LEDs beneath.
The all-glass fascia of Edition Hub is composed of mirrored spy glass; with the large-format display concealed behind it displaying crisp, clear information when necessary, and fading to total invisibility when not.
A broad range of connections on Edition Hub’s back panel ensures that it can receive, process and expertly deliver audio from any source imaginable.
Edition Hub features, as standard, Linn’s all-new, exceptionally efficient, highly responsive, and precision-regulated power supply design – our best yet – Utopik.
2. Choose your performance
The next choice to consider, is which of the three distinct tiers of digital-to-analogue converter (DAC) performance you will choose for your Selekt DSM.
Level 1 - Standard DAC
The standard option; a stereo DAC that performs beautifully in all applications.
Level 2 - Katalyst DAC
Gain a deeper insight into your music; upgrade to Katalyst for astonishing detail and musicality.
Level 3 - Organik DAC
Designed without compromise, and engineered entirely in-house, Organik is the breathtaking culmination of over thirty years of digital technology expertise. Available in stereo and higher-performing dual-mono variants. For the ultimate in quality check our Dual-Mono Selekt model (not available in the Selekt builder).
3. Choose your application
Once you’ve chosen your desired DAC performance level, you will choose which role you would like Selekt DSM to perform in your home today – with the option to expand and upgrade its capabilities in future.
1 - Source only (Pre-amp) to connect to your existing amplifier and speakers
2 - All in one (Integrated-amp) to connect directly to your speakers
3 - AV Reciever to conect to your TV and surround sound speakers
