This is Linn's universal disc player from about a dozen years ago, designed to play most any small shiny silver music or video disc! (the exception is bluray discs which were not invented yet!). Does a superb job on CDs, DVDs, SACDs and even DVD audio discs. Has composite, component, BNC outputs, as well as digital and RCA and XLR analog outputs. Also has multi channel analog outputs in case you have multi-channel DVD-A or SACD discs with surround channels! Even if used strictly as a CD player this machine is superb sounding, probably second only to their famous CD12 which was $20K! Overall in good condition: has some light scratches on top (probably from CD cases) and a few odd light spots in the finish (all are on top or sides--front is excellent) for some reason, but overall in decent shape, just not cosmetically perfect.
I have tested it with CDs, SACDs and DVDs and it seems to play all just fine. I have called Linn and they have hundreds of spare lasers available, should the laser ever give out. This machine can still be fixed!
