During normal HDMI operation, with an HDMI input selected for listening, the DSM will '''not''' pass audio to the HDMI output and any attached HDMI downstream devices (example TV).
 
  
Audio is only passed to the HDMI output when the DSM is in HDMI Audio Bypass Mode. This mode can be activated either by entering sleep/standby mode or by selecting a non HDMI input for listening.

1 Input 3 is a configurable input, which is factory set as a moving coil phono input for connection to turntables. This can be changed by a Linn dealer to a moving magnet phono input or a line-level input.
2 Analogue inputs (including front panel AUX IN), can be pass through an Analogue volume control to the Analogue out when Delay mode set to DIRECT on these inputs. 3 This input can be adjusted for different Phono stages or Line level by reconfiguring a circuit board within the Linn DS.

Key points

  • "No Network/LAN" indicates that the Linn DS/DSM/HUB does not have a live computer network connection. This can simply be that the cable is loose or that your computer network/LAN is off/not connected.
  • ! indicates that the Linn DS/DSM/HUB is expecting to see all of the pre-configured Exakt devices, (Exakt speakers, Exakrbox.., Urika-II) connected but it cannot see them. This is typically because the Exakt devices are physically disconnected from the Exakt-link network, they physically have no power going to them or the Linn DS/DSM/HUB has prevously been configured for these products but have not been removed from its setup.
