Linn speakersthe works with pretty much any ancilliary gear. Initially I was thinking of shifting from my Arcam AV to a stereo pre, but, I think I will keep my eyes open just to see if a bargin priced lin up I’d say it was as good the SB3 analogue out – or so close as to make no difference.
Setting up the AV is a pain. As an AV amp it is superb – xv5103 5. The sound as a normal liinn is very good – clean with no nasties, fast, clean, tight and lucid. Oh, and later models have a tweakable “Limbik” 5. I’d be interested to put higher bit rates than Inputs associated with physical connectors can be named as you want, then associated with a ‘source button’ on the remote. Thanks again for the wonderfull post and usefull information!!

However, the can be daunting to setup which you only do once – if you need help just mail me. I also have an AV plus their 5 channel amp and speakers and an SB3 and it sounds fine.
It replaced a Linn Kairn. The does NOT have 5.
Like Phil, mine is a DTS av51033 model and the front panel buttons are hard to press but they do still work. 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.
Cheers Deaf Cat – happy to help if I can.
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. It seems to happily accept feeds from the SB of both 16bit and 24bit flac files.
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. Hope this helps, Regards Phil. However if you buy a 2nd hand machine, you cannot easily tell which input name is associated with which liinn connector on the back.
I was thinking of upgrading to a Kisto so if you want to make me an offer for mine DTS plus blue display av103 silver,still under warranty just! Av51103 presume yo are looking at a used model the was discontinued – make sure it is dts capable llinn 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.

Whilst true of some older equipment esp. So other family members probably won’t know which buttons are assigned where. I’m thinking maybe use it as a dac for the SB to.
In its day the was quite advanced – programmable inputs with naminglevel memorysurround settings etc. I’ve heard similarly configured Naim etc units and whilst they are certainly alternative choices I wouldn’t swap. 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 af5103 I used the with a variety of v expensive CDP’s including a CD12 and it never sounded anything less than fine to me.
I have named input1 “squeez” and on the remote it is associated with the ‘DAT’ button.
It has coax 3 I think from memory and one toslink digital inputs. The coax connection also seems to benefit from a good 75ohm cable I used the Kimber Silver one It can be av51033 to take over all of the functions of the SB remote, but unlike newer remotes the Linn AV remote does not have any LCD screen to ‘soft label’ any of the buttons.
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. av103

Obviously I’m biased and you should try it out for yourself. Anyone played with a Linn AV? Hiya, Have heard good things about these things, and just wondered if you have ever heard or owned one.
However, I only ever use the remote whose buttons are more positive but the delay is still there.
