Do you mean the ones for RCA sockets, to link pre and power amp sections? Like this:

Linn dealers may have some, but try an electronics supplier like Mouser or Farnell. Or, use some short RCA leads.

We used to replace these with short RCA leads thinking it improved the sound quality. The best expectation bias triggered improvements are the free ones and the cheap ones. :)

I'd speak to a Linn dealer, you can get them on ebay but usually in large quantities. A dealer might be happy to let you have one or two. Was the phono jumper missing then?

Oh, those ones…

Anywhere that services computers etc, there’s usually quite a few on a motherboard.

Or if anyone has an old hard disk lying around, they are used for the Master/Slave setting pins.

no, phono amp link was there. but there are other functions that can be controlled by using links on other parts of the board.

Are they standard motherboard computer parts?

If you’re lucky. It will depend on the size of the header used on the board, but measuring the gap between pins will identify the size of link required.

You may laugh, but on certain integrated amplifiers with preamp out/main input sections with supplied jumpers, replacing them with an actual RCA interconnect made quite a big improvement in many cases. It was not expectation bias, I proved it many times to numerous people with no previous expectation. "Just Listen"
