Extra Info:Have this around 1 year, never missed a bit. used it as a network player from NAS, MC phono stage, DAC and PRE-ME.  No mark no scratch. Like the first day i got it.

I bought this unit from USA, Linn is universal power input. You can use it between 110v to 250v.

It has 2 RCA analog input plus 1 XLR analog input. The second RCA input is set to MC, you can easily change it to be MM or normal RCA analog input. I can change it for you if you like.

I have connected it to Audio Research HD220, Bel Canto ref600M, Pass Labs X150.5 with my Dynaudio C2, works perfectly.

Have original box and remote. Happy to ship in Australia in buyer's expenses.

Donate $50 if sold.

Any sources you connect to your DSM System via HDMI will sound better as they will benefit from the superior DAC and custom Linn up-sampling of the audio. Any video content on the HDMI signal will be passed through to the TV or output device connected via the HDMI out. Audio content will also be automatically passed through if the DSM is in Sleep mode.


With HDMI inputs, you can now play back SACD (Super Audio CD) and DVD-A (DVD Audio) discs by connecting the disc player to your DSM System. SACD content will be down-sampled to 176.4 K or 88.2 k and multi-channel audio down-mixed to stereo but this does allow high-quality playback of discs which cannot currently be ripped for streaming.
