Lindemann Audio Embraces DSD
According to Lindemann, “DSD is the new analogue!”. Known as specialists for excellent digital source, the announcement says both the Musicbook:10 and Musicbook:15 DACs, and Musicbook:20 and Musicbook:25 streamers have been revised quite significantly. The revisions mark the launch of their new Musicbook: range.
Musicbook:DSD features resampling of all digital source data (regardless of type of input) to DSD 256.
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 production (with far better resolution).
Musicbook:DSD also gains the addition of Bluetooth APTX and a USB Audio port capable of up to 384kHz and DSD 256 across all models.
The good news for existing Musicbook: models, the Musicbook:DSD will replace the previous models, however Lindemann is offering a full hardware upgrade to the new Musicbook:DSD version. It's not clear what costs are involved for this process, however firmware updates will be distributed online, free of charge.
Local pricing has not yet been confirmed.
