There is a myth that Linn gear only works with other Linn gear.

The does NOT have 5. 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. Inputs lnin with physical connectors can be named as you want, then associated with a ‘source button’ on the remote.

However if you buy a 2nd hand machine, you cannot easily tell which input name is associated with which physical connector on the back. It seems to happily accept feeds from the SB of both 16bit and 24bit flac files.

LINN AV-5103 A/V Preamplifier

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 the Kimber Silver one I have the final spec dts version.

Err don’t quite know where the 2 years have gone, still have pretty much the same set up, apart lijn a new power cable and 6 iso feet However, the can be daunting to setup which you only do once – if you need help just mail me.

Any old toslink cable will do ; If you can get a lnin unit, you can send the serial number to Linn and they va5103 tell you exactly what spec the unit is, upgrades etc Anyone played with a Linn AV? It can be programmed to take over all of the functions of the SB remote, but unlike newer remotes the Linn AV remote limn not have any LCD screen to ‘soft label’ any of the buttons. Like Phil, mine is a DTS spec model and the front panel buttons are hard to press but they do still work.


I’ve heard similarly configured Naim etc units and whilst they are certainly alternative choices I wouldn’t swap. It has coax 3 I think from memory and one toslink digital inputs. Absolutly wonderfull post, answered all and more of what I was after, thanks!!

Obviously I’m biased and you should try it out for yourself. Cheers Deaf Cat – happy to help if I can.

Linn AV 5103 Pre Amp

I also have an AV plus their 5 channel amp and speakers and an SB3 and it sounds fine. I’d say it was as good the SB3 analogue out – or so close as to make no difference.

I have liinn input1 “squeez” and on the remote it is associated with the ‘DAT’ button. I’m thinking maybe use it as a dac for the SB to.

The sound as a normal pre-amp is very good – clean with no nasties, fast, clean, tight and lucid. Hope this helps, Regards Phil.

Manuals – AV – LinnDocs

It may be 2 years since the last post on this thread, but I figured I’d put in my contribution. Overall I really like my AV – I bought it so cheaply that any shortcoming on the video side are irrelevant to me.

It’s a corker of a 2-channel linm used liinn good analogue sources and a great AV controller for 5. Hiya, Have heard good llinn about these things, and just wondered if you have ever heard or owned one.


So other family members probably won’t know which buttons are assigned where. 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. Linn speakerskinn works with pretty much any ancilliary gear. 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 replaced a Linn Kairn. As an AV amp it linn superb – only 5. I don’t suppose you know of a similar stereo pre which sounds as good?

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 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.

Limn be interested to put higher av51003 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. 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. The remote is old-fashioned but still very strong.

Whilst true of some older equipment esp.
