Like Phil, mine is a DTS spec model and the front panel buttons are hard to press but they do still work. I’m thinking maybe use it as a dac for the SB to.
However if you buy a 2nd hand machine, you cannot easily tell which input name is associated with which physical connector on the back. Linn speakersthe works with pretty much any ancilliary gear.
I have the final linnn dts version. In its day the was quite advanced – programmable inputs with naminglevel memorysurround settings etc. Oh, and later models have a tweakable “Limbik” 5. The does NOT have 5.

Whilst true of some older equipment esp. Setting up the AV is a pain. I would not replace mine unless it died unlikely – I’ve owned lots and lnin of Linn gear for over 25 years and NEVER lost a unit – excluding ‘Barik tweeters of course 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.
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 used the with a variety of v expensive CDP’s including a CD12 and it never sounded anything less than fine to me. Hope this helps, Regards Phil. As an AV amp it is superb – only 5. I don’t suppose you know of a similar stereo pre which sounds as good?
There is a myth that Linn gear only works with other Linn gear.

It has coax 3 I think from memory and one toslink digital inputs. 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 The coax connection also seems to benefit from a good 75ohm avv5103 I used the Kimber Silver one 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 The sound as a normal pre-amp is very good – clean with no nasties, fast, clean, tight and lucid.
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!
Inputs associated with physical connectors can be named as you want, then associated with a ‘source button’ on the remote. I also have an AV plus their 5 channel amp and speakers and an SB3 and it sounds fine. 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. I’d say it was as good the SB3 analogue out – or so close as to make no difference.
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 turns up I’d be interested to put higher bit rates than I’ve heard similarly configured Naim etc units and whilst they are certainly alternative choices I wouldn’t swap.
Anyone played with a Linn AV ? [Archive] – Squeezebox : Community : Forums
Obviously I’m biased and you should try it out for yourself. It can be programmed 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. It may be 2 years since the last post on this thread, but I figured I’d put in my contribution.
It seems to happily accept feeds from the SB of both 16bit and 24bit flac files. Anyone played with a Linn AV? Absolutly wonderfull post, answered all and more of what I was after, thanks!! However, I only ever use the remote whose buttons are more positive but the delay is still there.
Cheers Deaf Cat – happy to help if I can.
Hi Deaf Cat, I have used a as my system controller for the last 5 years. I have named input1 “squeez” and on the remote it is associated with the ‘DAT’ button. Anyway, my AV is set up to take a feed from the Squeezebox via a fairly low quality cable into electrical digital input ag5103 1.
