Linn DS Radio


Cara 6 firmware (2009) sees the introduction of a dedicated radio source for all Linn DS devices. TuneIn Radio (previously RadioTime) is the selected radio provider. Radio stations are stored and selected for playback as Presets. You are allowed a maximum of 100 presets per device. Davaar 86 firmware (Nov 2021) now allows the option of AirAble-Logo-coloured.png radio. The Radio stations presets are stored against your Linn Account.
Note: Linn Classical, Linn Jazz and Linn Radio stations have now moved to AirAble-Logo-coloured.png radio
