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

A PIN is the physical selection of six buttons on the top facia of the following Linn products:

Each PIN can be assigned/programmed by using Linn App, Kazoo to a saved Playlist, local source, Radio preset... to allow a quick and simple selection of your favourite music

The PIN service has been extended to all Linn DS/DSM products via the control software. Such as Linn App, Kazoo PC or MAC, Kazoo - Android devices, Crestron, Control4 & Savant.

More and more media attachment options are being added with software improvements, so watch this space.

(Pressing two PIN buttons at the same time can also be used in the setup of the relevent product. Check the relevant product page for more information)


  • 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, Unidisk..) 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
