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 It replaced a Linn Kairn. Linn speakersthe works with pretty much any ancilliary gear. 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 Hope this helps, Regards Phil.
It may be 2 years since the last post on this thread, but I figured Lnin put in my contribution. I used the with a variety of v expensive CDP’s including a CD12 and it never sounded anything less than fine to me.
The coax connection also seems to benefit from a good 75ohm cable I used av5130 Kimber Silver one As an AV amp it is superb – only 5. I have the final spec dts version.
Absolutly wonderfull post, answered all and more a5103 what I was after, thanks!! The sound as a normal pre-amp is very good – clean with no nasties, fast, clean, tight and lucid. Obviously I’m biased and you linn try it out for yourself. 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.
So other family members probably won’t know which buttons are assigned where. It has coax 3 I think from memory and one toslink digital inputs.
Anyone played with a Linn AV? 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 However if you buy a 2nd hand machine, you cannot easily tell which input name is associated with which physical connector on the back. Setting up the AV is a pain.

Thanks again for the wonderfull post and usefull information!! The does NOT have 5.
I also have an AV plus their 5 channel amp and speakers and an SB3 and it sounds fine. It’s a corker of a 2-channel pre-amp used with good analogue sources and a great AV controller for 5. 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.
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 Have heard very good things about theespecially the pre-amp side of it, hence the intrest, two birds with av103 stone – possibly – dac and pre. I’d be interested to put higher bit rates than I’m thinking maybe use it lknn a dac for the SB to. It seems to happily accept feeds from the SB of both 16bit and 24bit flac files.
Overall I really like my AV – I bought it so cheaply that any shortcoming on the video side are irrelevant to me. 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.
Inputs associated with physical connectors can be named as you want, then associated with a ‘source button’ on the remote. Like Phil, mine is a DTS spec model and the front panel buttons are hard to qv5103 but they do still work. However, I only ever use the remote whose buttons are more positive but the delay is still there. I was thinking of upgrading to avv5103 Kisto so if you want to make me an offer for mine DTS plus blue display in silver,still under warranty just!
Cheers Deaf Cat – happy to help if I can.

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. Whilst true of some older equipment esp. I’ve heard similarly configured Naim etc units and whilst they are certainly alternative choices I wouldn’t swap.
The remote is old-fashioned but still very strong. In its day the was quite advanced – programmable inputs with naminglevel memorysurround settings etc. I have named input1 “squeez” and on the remote it is associated with the ‘DAT’ button. 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.
Oh, and later models have a tweakable “Limbik” 5. Hi Deaf Cat, I have used a as my system controller for the last 5 years. There is a myth that Linn gear only works with other Linn gear. Hiya, Have heard good things about these things, and just wondered if you have ever heard or owned one.
