The Dynavector is a great choice for the Linn,I would recommend it highy,but you won't get the best out of it with the onboard stage on the Audiolab,it's a goos stage on the Audiolab,but the Linn and Dynavector would need something a bit more substantial.
You could also consider the Denons,103,110 etc.Later look at a better phono stage,such as the Dynavector P-75,Sonneteer Sedly,both work well with Dynavectors high out put MC carts.

For speakers with the Audiolab,try some older B&W,not the new ones,nor the old P range,but go back a few generations when the rememberd how to make music.Also consider some Epos m12.2,Revolver RW45 Second hand,I had a Audiolab,it needs careful partnering to avoid it sounding a bit grey and bass light,but it has a nice open midband.

thanks guys,phono stage will have to wait although i've heard rave reviews about the cambridge 640p,as for speakers i quite like the motive 2 as i may be upgrading the amp in the not to distant future.

oh yes,Motive twooooooos,lovely,the Cambridge is good,but it's no P 75 or Sedly beater.
