Bit disappointing for me.
+1. If they bundled something on the M-DS to a newer exalt-ready M-DS or M-DSM upgrade with the Majik Exaktbox, I'd likely have grabbed it.

Half of what I post on here is not worth reading; but I post it in order that the other half gets posted.

There are upgrades for Majik DS / DSM / DS-i available as per the May 2016 pricelist which unfortunately do require an Exakt purchase. However, if you were considering Exakt they do look reasonable (for Linn pricing! Smile ) I hadn't noticed these before.

That's right, since November last year we've been running an ongoing offer for Majik owners to upgrade to the latest version of their product when purchasing Majik Exaktbox-I (or other Exakt-enabled products). You can browse the options available in the upgrades section of the website, or follow the links below. Check with your Linn Specialist for local (and as CJS says, reasonable!) pricing.

Gentlemen, if you look at my first post, I was referring to an upgrade from the M-DS to an M-DSM with an Exaktbox-I purchase; this is not an option that Linn has made available. One could upgrade from a K-DS to K-DSM and from the A-DS to the A-DSM, but this upgrade pathway has not been made available by Linn, either by oversight or by design. It is this that I am referring to.

As you see the omission both in the pages to which gavinm linked and in the May 2016 Price List, I can only conclude that it is deliberate. However, the logic of not having a DS to DSM conversion at the Majik level escapes me too.

I think that selling an MDS and buying a new MDSM might be cheaper than sending it to Scotland and replacing it etc, for both the owner and Linn.

Even 25% off the upgrade price would be nice with exaktbox-1

Understood, linnrd. We've covered as many upgrade options as we could for Majik owners but unfortunately the DS to DSM conversion wasn't viable at Majik level. Akurate Exakt DSM would be a good alternative as you wouldn't need any of Majik DSM's analogue functionality in a system with Exakt.

RE: Linn's summer promotion
I remain curious why the Series 5 speakers aren't included in the first promotion, particularly given their heavy exposure at last year's factory event and a subsequent factory visit I had the pleasure to attend. Is it because their comparatively low cost doesn't justify a DS upgrade, or because they are aimed at a less specialist market? I ask because I'm genuinely interested in the 530s but would like to keep a Klimax level source.

KDS/3 - CD12 - SME 20/12 with V12 - Krystal - Uphorik - KK/1 - KCT/1 - custom Slate Age rack - Silvers - K200 - Akudoriks

Well, if the source really is "in the speakers", it probably won't be Klimax level with the 530s. I have half a recollection - but someone please correct me if I'm wrong - that the DACs and associated components (notably, the clocks) are Akurate level in the 530s. Of course, if you had a KEDSM or KDSM, it would have the system master clock, but all the actual digital-to-analogue work (which to my way of thinking is key to sound quality) is done in the 530 units.

... unless you happen to need a headphone output, or a front panel input ...
