Linn Sneaky Music DS review


This nifty Linn box is a music streamer for the audiophile – but can it justify the painful price tag?

Stunning sound quality and, for the deep-pocketed, a genuine alternative to a CD player

Linn Sneaky Music DS review


Linn, one of the bastions of traditional hi-fi, has entered the 21st century with its very own digital media player. And very good it is too

Exceptional sound quality ; compact and easy to get to grips with

Some price rivals are a shade more flexible

A startling departure from Linn, but a brilliantly realised one, too. This is a genuine alternative to a CD player

Impeccable audio quality and beautiful design but undermined by truly awful control software.
