Linn has added a few audio products for your whole-house listening pleasure.

Twice says that the Sneaky Music DS (Digital Stream) and the Majik DS are two new “audiophile-grade” products designed to deliver music from a networked storage device or PC. That means you won’t have to uproot your hard drives and other storage equipment just to enjoy the music you’ve amassed.

For $2,000, the Sneaky DS doesn’t seem all that sneaky. It’s got an on-board preamplifier and amplifier, which means you’ll just need to add speakers.

For an extra $1,500, the Majik has a preamp, but doesn’t feature the sparkle of an amp.

Both play FLAC, WAV and MP3 audio formats with up to a 24-bit / 192 kHz native sample rate, as well as SHOUTcast Internet radio. The Majik also throws in the magic of AIFF. Even cooler, each unit allows you to choose your own method of control—whether it’s via a remote, a PC, or even your cell phone.

Linn allows you to set up a demo for each product on its website.
