Linn Selekt Ready To Launch

Linn recently gave birth to a new network streamer, the Selekt DSM. In these days they are launching the streamer across the world, showing all four versions to the public. Common to the Selekt DSM is the streaming. Two with or without the Katalyst precision DAC and either with or without integrated 100W Class-D amplifier. Now is your chance to hear all four perched against each other. A treat to be reckoned with…


Sonos Amp Is A Grown Up Sonos

Sonos released the Sonos Amp not long ago in what seems a simple replacement of the Connect Amp. There is, however, more to this than just a beefed up amplifier and streaming an input signal (and hopefully a better sound quality). In addition to those 125 watts of power, Sonos Amp will work with other Amp on your network and turn into an amalgamated surround system and/or in-ceiling sound system; and with that a small hardware twist. With the existing Connect Amp you could make a rack stack and feed your house through speaker cables, albeit at the risk of overheating. This new Amp has a much improved heatsink construction with one specific objective: to make life simple for builders of hidden sound systems. Despite a lot of unfortunate shenanigans, Sonos have proved to be, in fact, rather professional at heart.

Interesting Short on Sonos

UK magazine What Hi-Fi? just wrote a short on what Sonos is and what it does. The short is, in short, rather short. But it does tell the story without much fiddling about meaning, of course, that it lacks a bit on the technical details.

Qobuz Aiming For High Resolution Streaming?

British hi-fi magazine What Hi-Fi suggests that French lossless streaming service Qobuz may have streaming of high resolution audio files in their pipeline. They have recently been given the Hi Res Audio logo rightly suggesting such a step. This will be interesting to follow.

Lydtapet.net

lydtapet4This is a service announcement for our Danish speaking audience. In March Danish record producer and music aficionado Morten Nissen of Trechoma Records and fellow enthusiast Jens Christensen, launched an ambitious music critique site called Lydtapet.net – Danish for sound tapestry. A site so directly targeting reviews paired with background information is rather unusual in itself. Even more unusual is the fact that the site’s auteurs have proven themselves eloquent and reflecting writers covering a surprising gamut of genres. One and a half month old, it appears Lydtapet.net is here to stay. Congratulations guys. We are pleased.
