Linn af5103the 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 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.
Hope this helps, Regards Phil.
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 can be programmed to take over all of the functions of the SB remote, but unlike newer remotes lnn Linn AV remote does not have any LCD screen to ‘soft label’ any of the buttons.
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 The does NOT have 5. Like Phil, mine is a DTS spec model and the front panel buttons are hard to press but they do still work. Any old toslink cable will do ; If you can get av1503 used unit, you can send the serial number to Linn and they can tell you exactly what spec the unit is, upgrades av510 It may be 2 years since the last post on this thread, but I figured I’d put in my contribution.
I also have an AV plus their 5 channel amp and speakers and an SB3 limn it sounds fine. I’d say it was av5130 good the SB3 analogue out – or so close as to make no difference. However, I only ever use the remote whose buttons are more positive but the delay is still there.
Thanks again for the wonderfull post and usefull information!! In its day the was quite advanced – programmable inputs lonn naminglevel memorysurround settings etc.
Anyone played with a Linn AV? 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. 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 Cheers Deaf Cat – happy to help if I can. Absolutly wonderfull post, answered all and more of what Oinn was after, thanks!!
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.
Manuals – AV 5103
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! 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. Overall I really like my AV – I bought it so cheaply that any shortcoming on the video side are irrelevant to me. The remote is old-fashioned but still very strong.
I’m thinking maybe use it as a dac for the SB to.

Hiya, Have heard good things about these things, and just wondered if you have ever heard or owned one. Setting up the AV is a pain. 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 av1503 work out.
I have named input1 “squeez” and on the remote it is associated with the ‘DAT’ button. 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. Hi Deaf Cat, I have used a as my system controller for the last 5 years. I’d be interested to put higher bit rates than Obviously I’m biased and you should try it out for yourself. Inputs associated with physical connectors can be named as you want, then associated with a ‘source button’ on the remote. Oh, and later models lnin a tweakable “Limbik” 5. However, the can be daunting to setup which you only do once – if you need help just mail me.
It has coax 3 I think from memory and one toslink digital inputs. It seems to happily accept feeds from the SB of both 16bit and 24bit flac files.
It’s a corker of a 2-channel pre-amp used with good analogue sources and a great AV controller for 5. Whilst true of some older equipment esp. 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 The coax connection also seems to benefit from a good 75ohm cable I used the Kimber Silver one
