PINS

Requirement: Davaar64 on Linn DS/DSM and minimum Kazoo 4.13

What is a PIN A PIN is a shortcut on the Linn DS to allow to quickly select inputs, Radio stations, Albums etc. This from subscribed services such as Tidal, Qobuz Calm Radio and UPnP Media servers, (currently only Kazoo Server). Pin support for more UPnP Media Servers will be added in the near future.

Creating PINS You create the PINS actions from Kazoo for

PC or MAC,
iPod/iPhone &
Android devices.

Note: Windows7 Kazoo and MAC OSX 10.10 does not have the PIN function.

Selekt DSM The six buttons on the front panel of the Selekt DSM are PIN buttons. Press one of those to get your selected Pin.

IR Remote control PIN use

The REM 022 IR handset has six direct selection PIN buttons


The Linn IR handsets allow to select a defined PIN on your Linn DS/DSM using the number (1-6) keypad.

Press AND HOLD number 1 for a couple of seconds will select PIN1,
Press AND HOLD number 2 for a couple of seconds will select PIN2, etc

...
If you have any difficulty after creating new PIN's in Kazoo:

  1. Power cycle the Linn DS/DSM and this should fix the issue.
  2. Check the batteries in the REMOTE, when you press any button then the STANDBY light should be on for as long as the button is pressed.


PIN FAQs:

  • We currently support pinning from Kazoo Server (V4.9.8 onwards) , Tidal, Qobuz, TuneIn, CalmRadio, DS radio presets, and Linn DSM external inputs
  • This is only applicable with Linn DS/DSM players with Davaar 64 or higher firmware
  • This currently does NOT support Pins to external pre-amplifier inputs, such as Akurate Kontrol, Kisto etc.
  • PINs use discrete IR codes and are not used with any other Linn Product control.
  • PINS for Radio stations are wrongly created with Kazoo V4.13.21, this has been fixed with next version 4.13.22. If you have created a Radio station PIN and it doesn't work, check you have a later version of Kazoo and re-assign this PIN to the correct radio station.

SPOTIFY

Spotify Connect can now be used from Davaar59 or later firmware. This allows you to select and Play your Spotify music on your Linn DS/DSM players and use the internal volume control on the Linn DS/DSM. This is web controlled and if your LInn DS/DSM has been paired with your Spotify account you will be able to control even if you are not on the same ethernet network.

ROON

The Linn DS/DSM requires Davaar63 or later to work with Roon V1.5 and above.

On Linn DS proxy setups, Linn DS with Linn Kontrol preamplifer connected with RS232, the Roon volume control will not control the Linn Kontrol volume. This will only work with Linn DSM or Linn DS with internal volume control disabled.
A Roon HUB is required in your network system to allow Roon to control your Linn DS/DSM.
ENABLE the Linn DS/DSM player in the Roon - Settings - Audio - NETWORKED section.
