I’d be interested to put higher bit rates than The ONLY thing I don’t like about the is the stupid “dead flesh” buttons on the front panel – they are not exactly instantaneous and you often end up pressing them twice. Have heard very good things about theespecially the pre-amp side of it, hence the intrest, two birds with one stone – possibly – dac and pre.

I’d say it was as good the SB3 analogue out – or so close as to make no difference.

Manuals – AV – LinnDocs

Whilst true of some older equipment esp. Hiya, Have heard good things about these things, and just wondered if you have ever heard or owned one. Anyway, my AV is set up to take a feed from the Squeezebox via a fairly low quality cable into electrical digital input number 1. Obviously I’m biased and you should try it out for yourself. I would not replace mine unless it died unlikely – I’ve owned lots and lots of Linn gear for over 25 years and NEVER lost a unit – excluding ‘Barik tweeters of course Like Phil, mine is a DTS spec model and the front panel buttons are hard to press but they do still work.


Any old toslink cable will do ; If you can get a used unit, you can send the serial number to Linn and they can tell you exactly what spec the unit is, upgrades etc Hope this helps, Regards Phil. The does NOT have 5. I don’t suppose you know of a similar stereo pre which sounds as good?

I few dealers, have them 2nd hand, ebay has one at the mo, and still new end of line in Aus and Ireland as far as I can work out. However, the can be daunting to setup which you only qv5103 once – if you need help just mail me.

Oh, and later models have a tweakable “Limbik” 5. Linn speakersthe works with pretty much any ancilliary gear. However if you buy a 2nd hand machine, you cannot easily tell which input name is associated with which physical connector on the back.

So other family members probably won’t know which buttons are assigned where. It replaced a Linn Kairn. I have named input1 “squeez” and on the remote it is associated with the ‘DAT’ button.

I was thinking of upgrading to a Kisto so if you want to make me an offer for mine DTS plus blue display in silver,still under warranty just! Err don’t quite know where the 2 years have gone, still have pretty much the same set up, apart form a new power cable and 6 iso feet Thanks again for the wonderfull post and usefull information!!


Anyone played with a Linn AV?

Linn AV 5103 Pre Amp

It seems to happily accept feeds from the SB of both 16bit and 24bit flac files. The sound as a normal pre-amp is very good – clean with no nasties, fast, clean, tight and lucid. Hi Deaf Cat, I have used a as my system controller for the last 5 years.

I also have an AV plus their 5 channel amp and speakers and an SB3 and it sounds fine. My Linn dealer told me that as a stereo preamp it is better than the majik LK wakonda, kolektor and kairn, but the newer ones are better.

I’m thinking maybe use it as a dac for the SB to. Setting up the AV is a pain. I presume yo are looking at a used model the was discontinued – make sure it is dts capable if you wan’t to use AV It’s a corker of a 2-channel pre-amp used with good analogue sources and a great AV controller for 5.

Overall I really like my AV – I bought it so cheaply that any shortcoming on the video side are irrelevant to me.
