Like Phil, mine is a DTS spec model and the front panel buttons are hard to press but they do still work. Oh, and later models have a tweakable “Limbik” 5.

Used Linn AV Surround processors for Sale |

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 Setting up the AV is a pain. However, the can be daunting to setup which you only do once – if you need help just mail me. I’ve heard similarly configured Naim etc units and whilst they are certainly alternative choices I wouldn’t swap. The ONLY thing I don’t like about the is the stupid linb flesh” buttons on the front panel – they are not exactly instantaneous and you often end up pressing them twice.

Linn AV 5103 Pre Amp

I used the with a variety of v oinn CDP’s including a CD12 and it never sounded anything less than fine to me. It can be programmed to take over all of the functions of the SB remote, but unlike newer linm 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 has coax 3 I think from memory and one toslink digital inputs. I don’t suppose you know of a similar stereo pre which sounds as good? The remote is old-fashioned but still very strong.

Obviously I’m biased and you should try it out for yourself. 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 I also have an AV plus their 5 channel amp and speakers and an SB3 and it sounds fine. Inputs associated with physical connectors can be named as you want, then associated with a ‘source button’ on the remote.

Whilst true of some older equipment esp.

Anyone played with a Linn AV? Cheers Deaf Cat – happy to help if I can. The sound as a normal pre-amp is very good – clean with no nasties, fast, clean, tight and lucid. Hiya, Have heard good things 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.

Thanks again for the wonderfull post and usefull information!! It replaced a Linn Kairn. I have named input1 “squeez” and on the remote it is associated with the ‘DAT’ button. Hope this helps, Regards Phil. It’s a corker of a 2-channel pre-amp used with good analogue sources and a great AV controller for 5.

However, I only ever use the remote whose buttons are more positive but the delay is still there. It seems to happily accept avv5103 from the SB of both 16bit and 24bit flac files.

Absolutly wonderfull post, answered all and more of what I was after, thanks!! I’d be interested to put higher bit rates than Linn wv5103the works with pretty much any ancilliary gear. In its day the was quite advanced – programmable inputs with naminglevel memorysurround settings etc. I’m thinking maybe use it as a dac for the SB to.


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 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.

However if you buy a 2nd hand machine, you cannot easily tell which input name is associated with which physical connector on the back. 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 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.

LINN AV A/V Preamplifier user reviews : out of 5 – 15 reviews –

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.

Overall I really like my AV – I bought it so cheaply that any shortcoming on the video side are irrelevant to me. As an AV amp it is superb – only 5. I have the final spec dts version. 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
