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.

Series3 - 301 The six numbered buttons on the top plate of the Series 3 are PIN buttons. Press one of those to get your selected Pin.


  • 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.

FAQ: IR Handset

  • Can the REM 020 or REM 022 IR handset be used to control other/earlier Linn Product?/
These IR handsets will have limited control of
* Pre-amplifiers, (Kairn, Wakonda, Akurate Kontrol..) has Volume, Mute, Source+/-, (no direct source selection) and Standby (if applicable).
* CD/DVD players, (Unidisk, Karik, Ikemi...) has basik transport (Play, Pause, Skip track +/-), track number selection, joystick, (if applicable) and Standby, (if applicable).
* Radio, (Kudos, Kremlin..), no functionality

The handsets use the Remote codes developed by Philips, called the "RC5 protocol". This protocol is also used by other Manufacturers such as Loewe, Arcam etc, so this handset may control the other manufacturers products and vice-versa.
If this cause any problems then we suggest with the Linn DS/DSM, or other manufacturers products, that the IR control is disabled. (At least with the Linn DS/DSM you also have Tablet and PC/MAC control using our control software Apps
