DSD is the new analogue!

DSD is the new analogue!

Munich – Lindemann audiotechnik is known to be a specialist for excellent digital sources. With the “Musicbook:DSD“ and just in time for the HighEnd 2016, the German manufacturer is going to launch a new generation of their Musicbook: line.

For this purpose both the converters (Musicbook:10 and 15) and the streamers (Musikbook:20 and 25) were revised in significant respects. As the world’s first (!) high-end devices the new models offer the following feature combination:

  • resampling of all digital source data (e.g. from CD, streamer, USB interface, digital inputs and even Bluetooth)
  • in DSD 256
  • with subsequent conversion of the DSD signal in the Pure Path mode

The sonic gain of the new converter architecture is dramatic: greater dynamics, more vivid timbres and a new, totally “life-like“ atmosphere which closely resembles an analogue reproduction (with far better resolution).

The already comprehensive feature set of the Musicbook digital sources is supplemented by Bluetooth APTX and a USB audio port up to 384 kHz and DSD 256 and standardised for all models (DACs and streamers).

The streaming platform can now even process DSD files in the .dff and .dsf formats; moreover, we have integrated convenient multi-playlists, the TIDAL online catalogue and a new radio and podcast provider. The Lindemann apps (Android, iOS) were also further optimised.

The new Musicbook:DSDs will replace the previous Musicbook models. RRP depending on configuration. After the introduction of the new version, we will offer a full hardware upgrade to the new Musicbook:DSD version for all customer devices. Firmware updates, e.g. to new streaming services, will be available online free of charge as before.
