How to Find Linn Serial Numbers

All Linn products have a unique serial number.  The serial number sticker is typically on the rear for speakers and the base of electronics (DSM, Amps etc). The sticker will also contain the product version. Additional information on the specific version can be found on the main Linn Docs site here : docs.linn.co.uk The serial number will also be printed on the carton label on the original Linn transport packaging.

Now if your equipment is all in a rack then it may be a little tricky to view the serial number sticker on the base of the unit without unplugging everything.

For 'dumb ' products such as passive speakers, amplifiers and power supplies there is no alternative method.

For 'smart' devices such as Linn DS/DSM, ExaktBoxes, Exakt Speakers and Selekt Modules you can retrieve the serial numbers from the comfort of your armchair.

Using the Linn KONFIG app for PC or Mac (free download from linn.co.uk/software ) you may receive the serial numbers directly from the system. You may also see this information if you have registerd the product and created a Linn online account (linn.co.uk/account).
