Recommendations for upgrading old Linn equipment

Hi All

New to the forum and would be extremely grateful for your help/advice please.

I am somewhat of a dinosaur having had the same all Linn system for c20 years. This comprised Karik CD player, Kairn preamp, Klout power amp bi-wired into a pair of Ninka speakers.

Unfortunately the Kairn has packed it in and is beyond repair.

All my music is on CD but would finally like to get into streaming and ripping these CDs.

I hoping for some honest advice on how to move forward. My main concern with my remaining Linn equipment is its age and that the Karik and Klout will end up like the Kairn and it is probably worth cashing in now.

I think it is probably worth keeping the Ninkas but would like a solution that sounds at least as good as the Linn stuff.

I’m not sure whether to go for a one box solution such as the Majik DSM 3 or Naim Uniti Atom, a separate integrated preamp/amp and separate streamer or an all separates solution. I’m quite drawn to Naim as a brand but I’m sure there are plenty of other good options.

I’m probably looking to spend c£2.5k/$3k.

Any ideas would be gratefully received and happy to be challenged on all preconceptions.

Many thanks in advance!
