Linn's DS players use industry standard networking technology for audio transport and control.

Audio Transport Requirements

Linn's DS players will play an audio stream from any network server that supports the following requirements:

  • The audio stream is identified and retrievable with a fully qualified HTTP URL
  • The HTTP server supports one of:
    • HTTP 1.1 Partial GET. This option is most suited to pull-based streams (eg requesting music on demand from network storage) and supports seeking.
    • HTTP 0.9, or later, GET (currently MP3 streams only). This option is most suited to push-based streams (eg internet radio). Such streams are not seekable.


Examples of servers that support these requirements:
