Having long ago abandoned the manufacture of CD players to pursue computer-stored audio as its chosen system for music playback, Linn is following up the recent launch of its high-end Exakt Music System with a promotion designed to introduce more users to downloading and streaming high-resolution recordings. It’s currently bundling its DS network music players with a range of special offers, from £100 of download vouchers for Linn Records with the Majik models, to a package including vouchers, Netflix and Spotify subscriptions, an Apple TV multimedia receiver and an Apple Mac mini computer when buying one of the company’s Klimax players. The Ultimate Offer promotion runs until February 18, and covers the Majik, Akurate and Klimax network players when they are bought through participating Linn dealers. £100 of vouchers for www.linnrecords.com, which has music in a variety of formats including Studio Master high-resolution, is available when buying either the Majik DS or Majik DSM models. Meanwhile buyers of the Akurate DS or DSM will receive £300 of vouchers, 12-month subscriptions to music streaming service Spotify Premium and on-demand video service Netflix, plus an Apple TV digital multimedia receiver. But the biggest bonus package is reserved for buyers of the Linn Klimax DS or DSM, plus those buying a Kilmax Exakt DSM as part of a Klimax Exakt system, upgrade or package. They receive £800 of Linn Records vouchers, the one-year Spotify and Netflix subscriptions, the Apple TV, and an Apple Mac mini computer. Vouchers for Linn Records are supplied in units of £50 (with Majik or Akurate purchases) or £100 when buying a Klimax product, and will remain valid until the end of May, allowing users time to build up the basis of a music collection. The Mac mini provided with Klimax purchases is the 4GB RAM/500GB hard-drive version, giving plenty of storage for music, and four USB ports to which extra hard-drive storage can be added.
