Naim prices due to significantly increase.

naim image
The price of all Naim products will significantly increase from 6th December.
This is due to the ongoing impact of the Covid pandemic which has created worldwide shortages of of components leading to major logistical issues. Naim cannot absorb these and other costs any longer and it has been necessary to increase prices to allow them to move forward. Their commitment to manufacturing quality and ongoing research and development costs have made this necessary.
Any orders placed with Naim before this date will be invoiced at the current price, so if you have been considering a Naim purchase please contact Colin at the showroom who can discuss any inquiry you may have.

Linn Klimax LP12

Introducing the latest iteration of Linn’s reference turntable, Klimax LP12.
Klimax LP12 with Ekstatik - 3Q_72
Klimax LP12 produces even more musical pitch-perfect performance thanks to Linn’s new Radikal. This is achieved as a result of its its hyper-accurate speed management technology, whisper-quiet power supply rails and cutting-edge motor design; the culmination of which led to their breakthrough cartridge, Ekstatik.
Klimax LP12 with Ekstatik - front_72


Radikal Machined_Silver_Front_72
The new Radikal generates a sustained and uniform rotation closer to 33⅓ rpm than any other turntable. The FPGA managed motor control unit and the latest, precision engineered motor technology work in unison to produce an ultra-smooth rotation, with their lowest drift measurements ever.
Radikal Machined_Silver_Rear_72
Radikal’s cutting-edge DC motor design generates negligible electromagnetic interference, effectively eliminating it as a sound of distortion. The motor itself features lower-noise voltage regulators, and smaller components, making everything electrically quieter than ever too.
Radikal Motor Profile_72
Radikal Motor Rear_72
An all-new 6-layer board facilitates shorter signal paths, small componentry, and minimal overall noise via dedicated ground and power planes. This improved board design sits at the heart of new Radikal, yielding their all-time lowest noise floor.


Linn_Ekstatik_Box Open_72
Ekstatik, Linn’s new flagship cartridge sets a new bar for synergy between the arm and cartridge. The unique construction forges a harmonious synergy with the Ekos SE, removing unwanted resonances along the arm, and out through the sub-chassis. Aluminium-bronze inserts allow Ekstatik to reap the sonic benefits Linn found that this alloy possess.
A micro-ridge stylus on a sapphire cantilever makes for an extraordinarily responsive cartridge. The sapphire is far stiffer than boron or aluminium, eliciting less loss between the stylus and the generator.
Ekstatik Ekos SE Closeup_72
A micro-ridge stylus on a sapphire cantilever makes for an extraordinarily responsive cartridge. The sapphire is far stiffer than boron or aluminium, eliciting less loss between the stylus and the generator.
Klimax LP12 is further enhanced by the very best Sondek LP12 components;
Keel – Integrated sub-chassis, armboard and tonearm collar
Machined from a solid piece of aluminium, Keel provides extremely rigid support to the tonearm and platter. Screws, fixings and joins between each component have been eliminated; removing virtually all vibrations.
Ekos SE – Flagship tonearm
Advanced materials have been carefully selected for their sound performance and low resonance properties. These minimise interference and resonance. The arm tube is machined from titanium to reduce resonance, while a stainless steel bearing housing ensures precision of movement.
Urika/Urika II
Analogue – Thanks to its location within the Sondek LP12 plinth itself, cable length (and therefore signal loss and noise) is at an absolute minimum. A dual mono design banishes any potential crosstalk.
Digital – A breakthrough in phono stage design, Urika II uses cutting-edge digital signal processing technology to implement the RIAA curve in the digital domain. This results in even lower distortion, lower noise and more music.
We feel this is the best musical performance Linn have ever achieved and is the new standard for LP replay.

Hi-Fi+ reviews Klimax DSM

Klimax_DSM_2021_Silver_Front Right_Shadow_web-res
In a recent Hi-Fi+ issue the Klimax DSM received a glowing review by Alan Sircom, in which he says it is the best streaming audio component he’s ever reviewed. In this post I will share a few excerpts from that issue. 
“I don’t want to focus on the styling, as there is a whole lot of tech going on under the hood that makes the Klimax DSM just so advanced when put against its peers, but you just can’t help be drawn to those looks.”
Klimax_DSM_2021_Internal_TopDown Organik DAC & ADC Boards_web-res
“A reviewer’s job is to trip products up, but the best products trip us up instead. When this happens, we play music that we think will show limitations in a device, and they end up highlighting their strengths instead. So it was with the Klimax DSM; I played the Overture to The Pirates of Penzance [D’Oyly Carte, Decca] which is a great test for imaging, but ended up being so musically bouncy and fun (as it should be) I felt like I should have mutton-chops and be wearing a smoking jacket.”
“The Linn Klimax DSM is one of those ultra-rare products that resets what you thought possible from a component, in this case streaming. If you are already down the top-tier Linn rabbit hole then this is a ‘must include’ on your wish list. But even those with absolutely nothing from the Scottish brand should put this on their ‘must hear’ list, simply because it gives you an insight into what streaming is truly capable of. Let’s not mince words; this is the best streaming audio component I’ve ever reviewed.”
I think his closing statement says it all.
You can experience the new Klimax DSM at our showroom in Beaconsfield. Please contact Colin for more information or to book a demonstration:

Klimax_DSM_2021_Silver_Front Right_Shadow_web-res
The new Klimax DSM combines decades of audio engineering and innovation. Exquisitely machined from solid aluminium, which provides vital isolation from external interference, and sitting at the heart is Linn’s all Oganik DAC architecture.
Klimax_DSM_2021_Internal_TopDown Organik DAC & ADC Boards_web-res
Organik has been designed without compromise and is entirely manufactured in-house, enabling precise control and optimisation at every stage of the digital to analogue conversion process. Offering significantly lower noise and distortion and measuring better than anything Linn has achieved prior, Organik’s highly accurate re-creation of the original source will bring you closer to your music than ever before.
The new Klimax DSM features a precision-cut glass dial, a large high-res screen for hands on control and both Wi-Fi and Bluetooth functionality. The six buttons on the front fascia are customisable, allowing you instant access to your favourite radio station, album or playlist, streaming service, podcast; the choice is yours. 
Analogue, digital, and wireless connectivity adds 24-bit 384khz streaming and DSD256 as supported audio formats. There is also the option to connect directly to your computer for the ultimate stand-alone DAC.
Included with the Klimax DSM, and all Linn network music players, is Space Optimisation.
Space Optimisation uses sophisticated acoustic modelling to build up a complete picture of how your speakers, their placement, and the unique characteristics of your room interact to affect the sound you hear. It then precisely identifies frequencies that are artificially distorted by your environment, and reduces their energy, to reveal the music that would otherwise be hidden.
The new Klimax DSM sets a new benchmark in the industry, and we are extremely excited about it. You can experience the new Klimax DSM at our showroom in Beaconsfield. Please contact Colin for more information or to book a demonstration:

New Majik DSM


New Majik DSM

The New Majik DSM offers a high-end combination of network music player, pre-amp and power amp; all in a single box. This next generation of Majik DSM outperforms its predecessor and we are excited to share both the technical aspects and our own personal views.
New_Majik DSM_2020_Front Right
The new Majik DSM features improvements to the DAC implementation, volume control and power amplification, which is all supported by a new, higher power processing platform. Benefiting from over a decade of research and development, the new DAC implementation makes a radical difference to the performance of the product.
New_Majik DSM_2020_Internal Top Down
The new DAC architecture is derived from Linn’s Katalyst technology, and includes improved upsampling, a lower noise reference voltage and an ultra-low jitter clock for greater timing accuracy throughout.
Linn’s class D power amplifiers offer improved performance because of their lower noise and distortion, allowing for more efficient signal conversion.
Space Optimisation uses sophisticated acoustic modelling to build up a complete picture of how your speakers, their placement, and the unique characteristics of your room interact to affect the sound you hear. It then precisely identifies frequencies that are artificially distorted by your environment, and reduces their energy, to reveal the music that would otherwise be hidden.
There are six buttons on the front facia which are all fully customisable, allowing you instant access to your favourite radio station, album or playlist, streaming service, podcast; the choice is yours. The larger button on the far right is a main menu button.
New_Majik DSM_2020_Detail_Buttons
You can take full control with the included remote control, or as with all other products in the DSM range, take control through the Linn app for OS or kazoo for android.
New_Majik DSM_2020_Remote
New_Majik DSM_2020_Rear
– Four HDMI 2.0 4K-compatible inputs; HDMI arc on the output.
– Type-B USB port means the Majik DSM can be used as a standalone DAC; allowing the user to play high-res audio directly from a PC.
– Flexible analogue input can be configured to either moving magnet (turntables) or line level (for other analogue sources).
New_Majik DSM_2020_Front Perspective
– ¼ inch headphone jack port on the front which boasts a new headphone amplifier
– Both wi-fi and bluetooth functionality
It is very surprising just how much it musically improves on the last model.
By appointment, demonstrations can be arranged which would take place in our large, airy double aspect demonstration room. Windows remain open during business hours and all precautions would be taken to adhere to government guidelines.

The Karousel LP12 bearing promotion has been very popular. Due to COVID-19, Linn retailers with high street shops have only just reopened. The promotion, which officially finished a few weeks ago, has been extended. This extension is until June 30th so there is still a short time left to take up the offer.
Note we can now carry out Colin’s Karousel demonstration.
We have been inundated with very positive feedback from customers whose LP12’s we have fitted with Karousel, and some have for the first time put pen to paper:
“First record at random, Van Morrison Down The Road. Started to walk away, just had to turn around. The sound of the harmonica with the breaths between the notes, as for the saxophone. What! Talk about what a sax really is. Next Beethoven 9 followed by 6. “BRILLIANT”. It just gets better, Emelda May, Freya Ridding. STOP got to get some work done. Thank you, Colin. Great job. Worth every penny”
Pat, Herts.
“Courtney Pine, Journey to the Urge Within-Children of the Ghetto. Courtney Pine’s tenor sax is much richer and fuller, Susayne Greene’s vocals hit the high notes with perfect resonation, and the duet between the two is sublime with the sax almost sounding human.
Puss N Boots, No Fools No Fun. – Tarnished Angel, live. Sasha Dobson is the main vocal, being joined by Norah Jones at times. But now Norah’s vocals, instead of being indistinct and being swamped by Sasha’s deeper voice, are clearly distinct and add to the melody.
The Police, Synchronicity, Every Breath You Take. The percussion is much tighter and stronger. The clarity is superb, and Sting’s voice rises out above the heavy sounds of the guitars and drums. Colin, both our sons have LP12’s and have heard my own deck with the Karousel. Put us down for two more please!”
Tony, Surrey.
“The upgrade is amazing. It really grabs attention, and I have never heard Frank Zappa’s “One size Fits All”, sound so easy to understand. The musicianship from that first record is at a new level and the second Sinatra LP was also a surprise. We have never heard him sing so well. I cannot believe the progress Linn have made in extracting information from vinyl in the past few decades.”
Mick. BBC R4. London.
“Collected my deck today. Wow! I can hear more of everything except vinyl roar. Span several of my “test” records and can hear more instruments played with greater precision. A couple of records in the collection always sounded a bit lacklustre as if a good tune was trying to get out. They have now sprung to life.”
Ian, Berks.
“Deck sounding great. Very pleased. Noticeable extra detail, quieter “quiet” bits and hearing a tighter, deeper bass and larger, clearer soundstage. Michael Garrison sounding superb right now”.
John. Surrey.
fluted plinths header
We are in possession of some fluted LP12 plinths. These were a batch specially made for the Lingo 4 and Urika 2 product launch and were an optional extra for those buying the new products. They were made for Linn from their normal supplier and are authentic but had very short availability. We took up the option ourselves and they have been in stock here since. We checked with Linn last week and was told that although gloss colours are now available, the fluted wood were a special order and will never be repeated.

They are available in solid Oak, Walnut and Cherry.

LP12 servicing during Corona virus


Linn LP12 Servicing

We are now several months into the Corona virus lockdown and with yesterday’s statement of relaxation of travel rules, it’s important to know what we can do for you at this time. We are not yet ready to carry out demonstrations of equipment but are still busy with LP12 servicing.
As you know I have been “self-isolating” since we moved here four years ago, and our business model is very well suited to the current situation. We are not a shop and see customers individually by appointment. and because we have our own large private gated car park we are servicing and upgrading LP12’s on a convenient, safe no contact basis.
Photo of carpark
It is important that a Sondek is serviced every 4-5 years. The result of skipping regular servicing gradually results in less musical involvement and excitement as well as increased surface noise, less dynamic range and musical drive. Skipping servicing long term can also result in your record collection being permanently damaged by a worn cartridge.
Our facility here in Beaconsfield is proving to be very well adapted to the need have an LP12 serviced safely with no risk.
By appointment you can deliver your LP12 to us, there will be a table at the gate end of our private car park for this purpose. We can have a conversation at distance outside before you leave. The deck is then brought indoors and quarantined for several days before it goes on a bench for assessment in our dedicated workshop. After examination we can then discuss any requirements by phone and the deck will then be serviced.
We have never ever serviced LP12’s while someone waits or watches and never set up LP12’s in the home. Over the years every LP12 done that way elsewhere we have subsequently seen has been third rate with serious set up errors no matter who has done the work.
It is very convenient for the owner and there is a substantial financial incentive to a Linn dealer, but we won’t do it as we want our customer to receive an LP12 which is absolutely first rate. If time has run out or I don’t have a couple of parts so it will have to do isn’t acceptable. The time pressure and distractions that can occur during those methods are all too easy to see and hear, and some LP12’s arrive here later after the penny has eventually dropped with the owner. Our workshop is facilitated to do this task without compromise and your LP12 can spend two days on the bench or more if needed to trim the arm lead and optimise the suspension as it settles. Once serviced, and if required upgraded, the deck is then tested and auditioned in the main demonstration room before being quarantined again before you collect.
The relaxation of government travel rules now allows a visit whereas before this could only be done if doing food shopping and petrol.
Please also note that we are now supplying some products like Naim Audio direct delivery from the factory to your home and the new Karousel bearing is in stock for those considering during service.
Please contact Colin if you wish to discuss your LP12 or anything else:
