Majik Kontrol vs. Akurate Kontrol

My current stereo (2-channel) music system consists of the following gear:

VPI Scoutmaster turntable
Dynavector DV-20X Low MC catridge
Dynavector P-75 MKII phono pre-amp
Magnum Dynalab MD-90 analog FM tuner
Linn Akurate CD player
Linn Majik Kontrol pre-amp
Linn Akurate 4200 power amp
Linn Katan speakers (Aktiv)
Linn Katan Stands
Linn Sizmik 10.25 powered subwoofer

I visited a local Linn dealer yesterday to discuss the possibility of adding a Sneaky DS to my music system. However, the dealer suggested that I seriously consider upgrading my Majik Kontrol pre-amp to an Akurate Kontrol pre-amp before even considering a Linn DS solution. According to him, the Akurate Kontrol will provide a performance improvement to the rest of my sources (turntable, tuner, CD and DS).

Should I upgrade my Majik Kontrol to an Akurate Kontrol and add a Sneaky DS to my system or should I keep my Majik Kontrol and jump straight to a Majik DS instead?

Please keep in mind that unless I win some money in a lottery draw, I do not see myself ever upgrading to an Akurate DS (way out of my budget).
In all my listening in my sytems, and Ihave like 5, I have found preamps make BIG difference, sounds like you have a heck of a system, have the dealer loan you one, fire it up and see or hear what happens.
That's a strange answer for a Linn dealer in my experience. Check out the Linn Forums. I think you'll generally hear feedback that the better source will make the bigger difference. If I were you, I'd sell the Akurate CD and get an Akurate DS (or a Majik DS). Keep the Majik Kontrol for now and upgrade later.
