Hiya, Have heard good things about these things, and just wondered if you have ever heard or owned one. Cheers Deaf Cat – happy to help if I can. Whilst true of some older equipment esp. I’ve heard similarly configured Naim etc units and whilst they are certainly alternative choices A5103 wouldn’t swap.
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 linn other Linn gear. Overall I really like my AV – I bought it so cheaply that any shortcoming on the video side are irrelevant to me. It seems to happily accept feeds from the SB of both 16bit and 24bit flac files.
Absolutly wonderfull post, answered all and more of what I was after, thanks!! The remote is old-fashioned but still very strong. 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 In its day the was quite advanced – programmable inputs with naminglevel memorysurround settings etc. However if you llnn 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. I would not replace mine unless it llnn unlikely – I’ve owned lots and lots of Linn gear for over 25 years and Avv5103 lost a unit – excluding ‘Barik tweeters av51003 course The coax connection also seems to benefit from a good 75ohm cable I used the Kimber Silver one 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.
So other family members probably won’t know which buttons are assigned where. I used the with a variety of v expensive CDP’s including a CD12 and it never sounded anything less than fine to me. Like Phil, mine is a DTS spec model and the front panel buttons are hard to press but they do still work. Err linm quite know where the 2 years have gone, still have pretty much the same set up, apart form a new av5130 cable and 6 ag5103 feet It may be 2 years since the last post on this thread, but I figured I’d put in my contribution.
Hope this helps, Regards Phil. 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. However, I only ever use the remote whose buttons are more positive but the delay is still there.
It replaced a Linn Kairn. I’m thinking maybe use it as a dac for the SB to.
However, the can be daunting to setup which you only do once – if you need help just mail me. 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.
I also have an AV plus their 5 channel amp and speakers and an SB3 and it sounds fine. I don’t suppose you know of a similar stereo pre which sounds as good? Oh, and later models have a tweakable “Limbik” 5.
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. I have named input1 “squeez” and on the remote it is associated with the ‘DAT’ button. It’s a corker of a 2-channel pre-amp used with good analogue sources and a great AV controller for 5. 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 Anyone played with a Linn AV?
Linn speakersthe works with pretty much any ancilliary gear.
I’d be interested to put higher bit rates than I’d say it was as good the SB3 analogue out – or so close as to make no difference. 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. It has coax 3 I think from memory and one toslink digital inputs.
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!

As an AV amp it is superb – only 5. Obviously I’m biased and you should try it out for yourself. I have the final spec dts version. The sound as a normal pre-amp is very good – clean with no nasties, fast, clean, tight and lucid. 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.

The does NOT have 5. Inputs associated with physical connectors can be named as you want, then associated with a ‘source button’ on the remote.
Thanks again for the wonderfull post and usefull information!!
