Every so often, a new product comes along that redefines expectations and revolutionises standards; forging its own path in the name of innovation and ingenuity. Launched in 2018, and encapsulating Linn core values of modularity and upgradeability, Selekt DSM was developed with the express intent for it to grow into a broad ecosystem of ingenious, modular components.
It is our great pleasure to announce the option of a luxurious, superior-quality enclosure – Selekt DSM: Edition Hub – alongside the very welcome and hotly anticipated arrival of Organik DAC for Selekt, in both stereo and higher-performing, dual-mono variants.
We are also announcing a host of high-performance components that make Selekt DSM the undisputed king of configurability – in a class of its own.

Linn Selekt Edition DSM Streaming Hub
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.
The Edition Hub chassis consists of four plates, rigidly bolted together. The side pieces are flawlessly aligned with the base using pins, with four long bolts subsequently torqued-in for an exceptionally rigid fix, with a pleasing, precision fit and finish.
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; 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 from video streaming devices, games consoles, and Blu-ray players – ensuring you get the best possible sound from anything you connect to your Selekt DSM.
Edition Hub features, as standard, Linn’s all-new, exceptionally efficient, highly responsive, and precision-regulated power supply design – our best yet – Utopik.
Available as Audio, Audio with HDMI or Exakt Hub variants, next-generation Selekt Edition DSM offers more options than ever before!
