Linn launches the Majik music system

Home audio

Specialist hi-fi manufacturer Linn is launching its new Majik System – a dedicated, analogue music system, which the company claims will "revitalise any CD or vinyl collection".

The system comprises of the Majik CD player, Majik Kontrol pre-amplifier and Majik 2100 power amplifier. The CD player is based on Linn’s acclaimed Sondek CD12, but also features (as it does on all these components) Linn’s proprietary Switch Mode Power Supply, which runs much more quietly than other power supplies so doesn’t detract from the music.

The pre-amp features six stereo analogue inputs, a phono-stage for MM and MC cartridges to suit any turntable and an independent record path for continued enjoyment of the music without interrupting the recording. The power amplifier features Linn’s Chakra amplifier technology, which delivers a superior, more controlled and efficient audio performance than other amplifier technologies, plus 4mm binding posts for solid electrical contact.

The system launches in May 2006. No price available as yet.
