Linn has become some kind of audiophile Santa Claus this year by offering a free daily Studio Master download from its catalogue of high-quality hi-res recordings.
Linn will offer a total of 24 tracks for free till Christmas.
Today is day one of the offer and the download is a beautiful choral piece from the world-famous Handel’s Messiah by the Dunedin Consort.
Linn’s website says: “There’s something for everyone to enjoy – from the lively lilts of the Scottish Chamber Orchestra and a captivating concerto from the Avison Ensemble, to foot-stomping indie-rock band Admiral Fallow and the absorbing rhythms of Emma Pollock (The Delgados).
“Each track is available in Studio Master – the highest quality download available anywhere, letting you hear a song exactly as it was recorded. Every note, every beat captured just as it sounded before it was shrunk to fit on CD or squashed down to MP3 size.
“Don’t forget to check back each day – by Christmas you’ll have an unbelievable playlist, with love from Linn.”
