Hiya, Have heard good things about these things, and just wondered if you have ever heard or owned one. Hi Deaf Cat, I have used a as my system controller for the last 5 years.

Anyway, my AV is set up to take a feed from the Squeezebox via a fairly lijn quality cable into electrical digital input number 1.

Oh, and later models have a tweakable “Limbik” 5. The does NOT have 5. As an AV amp it is superb – only 5.

The remote is old-fashioned but still very strong.

Linn speakersthe works with pretty much any ancilliary gear. Err don’t quite know where the 2 years have gone, llinn have pretty much the same set up, apart form a new power cable and 6 iso feet I don’t suppose you know of a similar stereo pre which sounds as good?

Manuals – AV 5103

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 Thanks again for the wonderfull post and usefull information!! Cheers Deaf Cat – happy to help if I can. I’m thinking maybe use ac5103 as a dac for the SB to. The coax connection also seems to benefit from a good 75ohm cable I used the Kimber Silver one I have named input1 “squeez” and on the remote lin is associated with the ‘DAT’ button.


I also have an AV plus their 5 channel amp and speakers and av103 SB3 and it sounds fine. The sound as a normal pre-amp is very good – clean with no nasties, fast, clean, tight and lucid. There is a myth that Linn gear only works with other Linn gear. However, I only ever use the remote whose buttons are more positive but the delay is still there. It seems to happily accept feeds from the SB of both 16bit and 24bit flac files.

I few dealers, have lknn 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. Anyone played with a Linn AV? I’ve heard similarly configured Naim etc units and whilst they are certainly lnin choices I wouldn’t swap.

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

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. It has coax 3 I think from memory sv5103 one toslink digital inputs.

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

In its day the was quite advanced – lihn inputs with naminglevel memorysurround settings etc. 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 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 Overall I really like my AV – I bought it so cheaply that any shortcoming on qv5103 video side are irrelevant to me.

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. 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. Setting up the AV is a pain.


It’s a corker of a 2-channel pre-amp av510 with good qv5103 sources and a great AV controller for 5.

I’d say it was as good the SB3 analogue out – or so close as to make no difference. I’d be interested to put higher bit rates than 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. 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.

Whilst true of some older equipment esp. I have the final spec dts version.

Absolutly wonderfull post, answered all and more of what I was after, thanks!! It replaced a Linn Kairn. Like Phil, mine is a DTS spec model and the front panel buttons linm hard to press but they do still work.

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 ac5103 than fine to me. 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 Hope this helps, Regards Phil. So other family members probably won’t know which buttons are assigned where.
