Bakoon Amp 11R
Wonderful single stage amp. Perfect for smaller spaces, elegant and a fantastic built in headphone stage. Here's a snippet from one of the rave reviews. ”My ultimate in-house amp mate became the Bakoon whose capture of micro detail exceeds that of the burlier ModWright. The sound was exceptionally informative about recorded venue data yet didn’t default into an electrostatic read that’s all speed but no curves.”-”My journey started with your highly recommended FirstWatt J2 some three years ago. With great enjoyment I must say. My latest purchase is the Bakoon AMP11-R. Wow! In your review you stated the 11R being” lit up all over.” This is so true. Compared to my J2 the J2 sounds almost metallic (slight glare) whereas the 11-R sounds so open, lit up and sweet. The sound, integration, speed and sweetness are just wonderful.-”Bakoon proved to be an ultra-resolution component…I’ll simply say that the only amp through my system which plays at that level is the Nelson Pass SIT1.” 6 MOONS REVIEW

T+A Power Plant Balanced and Music Player Balanced
T+A Power E-Series Plant Balanced and Music Player BalancedIncludes and optional on-board MM Phono Board. These two low time pieces are beautiful demos pieces from our by appointment showroom. Excellent Condition/all packed and ready to go. Includes (1) FM100 remote control. Black chassis with Black end caps. You have nearly every source available with the Music Player - CD/FM/DAC/Streaming Client and MM Phono built into the Power Plant Integrated Amplifier. This is a great sounding package at a fraction of the cost! All you need are cables and speakers and you will have an top-level system from Germany.T+A Powerplant Balanced Integrated AmplifierReg $3000 plus optional MM phono board $350 The core of the E-series is the Power Plant balanced, an integrated amplifier with almost boundless power and superb sound.Following the tradition of our legendary transistor-based and valve-based amplifiers, the pre-amplifier was developed from the outset with a clear emphasis on sound quality, neutrality and maximum possible dynamic range. The use of the latest audio operational amplifiers on separate voltage-stabilised circuit boards (OAD = Op-Amp Decoupling) produces a further important improvement in the sound. As you would expect, there is a two-stage volume control with precision ALPS potentiometer, which helps to ensure a generous overload margin and high signal : noise ratios. A Flat switch is included, allowing the sophisticated tone controls and loudness function to be removed entirely from the signal path if required.The Power Plant balanced is equipped with high-quality balanced and unbalanced inputs. The balanced input section (XLR) is located on its own circuit board, is of fully symmetrical construction, and is coupled directly to the pre-amplifier via the highest-quality differential amplifiers. The RCA and XLR inputs are very flexible, and can be assigned to a variety of source devices. The input select switches feature the best quality gold-contact relays to guarantee freedom from harmonic distortion and background noise.The output stages are switch-mode circuits in which the output signal is generated by a large number of very short positive and negative pulses. Our switched output stages - developed entirely in-house - are by no means ready-made “off-the-peg” integrated IC amplifiers; they are of discrete construction, and equipped with the very latest ultra-fast MOSFET transistors and intelligent high-current driver modules. The oversized analogue mains power supply, with toroidal transformer for low leakage fields and separate buffering for each stage, ensures that the system has high reserves of energy at all times, and is the key to the enormous dynamic range of the output stages.Connections The Power Plant provides five high-quality inputs, which are selected using gold-contact relays; two of these can be set up as XLR inputs. A1 can also be converted to a Phono input using an internal PHE MM or PHE MC R-Series module (earthing clamp present). REC OUT and PRE OUT are also provided. The robust loudspeaker terminals are gold-plated and contain no ferro-magnetic metals. The integral RS 232 socket is used for software updates, and also constitutes the control interface for the system. For the E-series we developed a high-performance “E-Link” bus system which passes all commands from the FM100 system remote control handset from the Music Player to the Power Plant. If the Power Plant is operated without the Music Player, an FBS FM100 remote control set is required in order to control it remotely; in this case the E 2000 IR receiver is connected to the RC IN socket. Technical information The basis of our new amplifiers is a type of output stage known as a PWM circuit (PWM = pulse width modulation), with a modulator of analogue construction. The output stages feature analogue negative feedback which compensates for any adverse effects of voltage fluctuations in the mains power supply, thereby eliminating signal distortions induced by the power supply voltage; such distortion is otherwise inevitable with pure “forward concepts”. The negative feedback is at a relatively low level, and is also frequency-dependent (stronger in the bass range, where large currents are encountered, diminishing in the mid-range / treble area). This results in a very well controlled, open sound image which never tends towards harshness, coupled with beautifully contoured, well-defined bass. The liveliness and musicality of this circuit philosophy is outstanding. When designed properly, switch-mode output stages can not only sound superb, they are also capable of generating enormous power with greatly reduced losses and little waste heat. They cope effortlessly even with power-hungry loudspeakers, since the Power Plant balanced delivers peak currents of up to 50 Ampere.Specifications: Nominal output per channel: 2 x 250 Watt into 4 Ohms, 2 x 140 Watt into 8 Ohms Peak output: 2 x 380 Watt into 4 Ohms, 2 x 210 Watt into 8 Ohms Frequency response: + - 3dB: 1 Hz - 60 kHz Total harmonic distortion: < 0,005 % Inter-modulation: < 0.005 % Channel separation: > 80 dB Inputs: 5 x high-level (RCA) 250 mVeff ... 3 Veff / 20 kOhm 2 x balanced (XLR) +- 250 mVeff ... +- 3 Veff / 5 kOhm Optional: Plug-in MM phono module MM, 1 - 5 mV, 16 capacitance values Plug-in MC phono module, 60 - 1000 µV, 16 impedance values Outputs: Pre-amplifier output Headphones > 50 Ohm Tape Out Dimensions (H x W x D): 12 x 44 x 39 cm, (4.7 x 17.6 x 15.6 inch) Weight: 13 kg, (28.6 lbs) Remote control system: via MUSIC PLAYER or optional FBS 100 radio remote control system Mains supply: 220-230 V or 110-115 V, 50-60 Hz, 600 Watt T+A Music Player Balanced CD/DAC/FM/Music Streamer - Reg $4500 The Music Player balanced is a unique and totally exclusive digital source component, as it combines for the first time the classic music source of CD with the newest music sources from the world of computers and the Internet. Kindly note that the Music Player is not a computer, but a high-quality audiophile CD player into which supplementary capabilities have been grafted, enabling it to exploit additional digital sources. To achieve this aim we developed a main circuit board capable of switching between four different digital sources whilst maintaining the highest possible, jitter-free quality: a streaming client (SCL) - which is a network-capable processor board featuring WLAN, LAN, USB and i-Pod interfaces - a high-quality digital FM tuner, the CD player and five digital SP/DIF inputs with their own clock resynchronisation. The net result is that the Music Player has access to everything that can deliver music: Internet radio, UPnP network music servers and USB media storage units, iPod including control system, VHF radio, CD discs, and music from your computer and other external sources via the SP/DIF inputs. The classic CD is destined to remain one of the most important program sources into the distant future, and that is why - following the tradition of our legendary disc players - we designed the Music Player in the form of a thoroughbred stereo CD player. And that is also why the machine is immeasurably superior to any computer solution in terms of audiophile demands. The digital signals from the CD mechanism, the streaming client board, the VHF tuner and the digital SP/DIF inputs are converted into analogue signals to the highest standards of quality by the extremely refined, fully symmetrical, double-mono DAC. This circuit even employs the latest 32-bit converter from Burr Brown (TI). The Music Player is not only a High-End player: it also constitutes a High-End audio DAC for external sources.Connections The back panel of the Music Player balanced reveals the vast facilities on offer: the machine not only provides balanced High-End analogue outputs (with volume and tone controls as an option), but also a jitter-free digital output. The five High-End digital inputs (coax accepts up to 192 kHz sample rate, and optical accepts up to 96 kHz) can be used to provide high-quality conversion of external sources, enabling other equipment to benefit from the extraordinary sound qualities of the Music Player. The Music Player is supplied complete with the FM100 system remote control, which can also be used to control the Power Plant; in this case the machines are linked using the "E-Link" data bus connection. The gateway required to use the optional FD100 radio remote control system is installed as standard.High End Disc Loader The Music Player incorporates the High-End disc loader unit from our R-series players: the outstanding features of this unique design are its stainless steel pushrods, aluminium / ABS support plate, laser unit with floating mount system and heavy-duty MABUCHI motors.Specifications: Format: CD-Player CD/DA, CD-R, CD-RW, CD Text Streaming Client Formats: MP3 , WMA, AAC, OGG-Vorbis, FLAC (192/24 via LAN) and WAV (192/24 via LAN) with gapless playback (where supported by server) Playlists PLS, M3U, ASX (where supported by server) Supported media servers: UPnP 1.1, UPnP AV, Microsoft Windows Media Connect Server (MS DRM10), vTuner Internet Radio Service, DLNA compatible servers Standards: DLNA, UPnP, MS-DRM 10, Designed to play Plays for sure guidelines Features: Web server(remote PC Web browser control) vTuner,Internet Radio Station database (automatic updates over Internet) Interfaces: USB 2.0 for hard disc, iPod with control system and display, LAN, WLAN, RS 232 update and control interface FM-Radio: FM Radio 87.5 - 108 MHz, sensitivity 2 µV, cross-talk damping > 40dB, overload margin > 125 dB?V, RDS functions, station lists, stored stations (presets) D/A-converter: 32-bit, 384 kHz Sigma-Delta, 8-times oversampling, double-mono Analogue filter: Phase-linear Bessel filter, 3rd order 100 kHz Frequency response: 2 Hz - 20 kHz 44.1 kSps 2 Hz - 22 kHz 48.0 kSps 2 Hz - 40 kHz 96.0 kSps 2 Hz - 80 kHz 192.0 kSps Total harmonic distortion: < 0,001 % Signal : noise ratio (A-weighted): 106 dB Outputs, analogue Unbalanced (RCA): 2.5 Veff / 22 Ohm fixed.

Room Perfect helps your ears think the walls have been removed and lets you hear the anechoic response of your speakers. It's as if you had a perfect listening room. It is also a Integrated amplifer that is a true digital amp that only converts to Analog at the speakers. When you input a digital signal into the TDAI 2170 and then perform room perfect the 2170 keeps everthing in the digital domain until the signal gets to the speakers, the result is a transcendent jump in performance that allows your music to sound not only real but smooth, natural and sparkle like real instruments do and delight you. Plus you tame the bass resonances in your room which allows your speakers to play deeper than you have ever heard them and simultaneously liberates your midrange. All that I have described so far is really just the tip of the iceberg. The TDAI 2170 also includes an electronic crossover network. The Crossover network feeds the built in amplifer which is 85 watts at 8 ohms and 170 watts into 4 ohms but will also feed what ever portion of the frequency range you want out of a pair of RCA jacks for left and right or through a spdif output on the back for a true digital amplifier like the SDA 2400 from Lyngdorf which will have both analog and digital inputs to work from. This allows you to do more than biAmp your speakers it allows you to pass the correct frequency range through your amplifiers to your speakers or perfectly integrate one or 2 subwoofers with your main speakers. In addition you choose the ideal crossover frequency and slope up to 48 dB per octave slope and your choice of Bessel or Linkwitz Riley crossover network. You don't need a outboard DAC as the TDAI 2170 with the USB or HDMI options can D to A up to 384K PCM signals and D125 DSD files. If you don't need USB or HDMI inputs you can use the optical or coax spdif inputs. Besides being amazingly convienent for an audiophile product you eliminate most of your anaolog signal cables as none are needed between DAC and or CD PLayer and the TDAI 2170. The TDAI 2170 has 2 pair of single ended analog inputs and you can ad their deluxe analog inputs which includes a pair of balanced analog inputs and 2 pair additonal rca high end analog inputs. This unit has all the options. Would you like to listen to your tv programs or movies in unsurpassed stereo, this TDAI 2170 has the HDMI input options which allows you to feed all of your HDMI inputs in and output the video over HDMI and play all your audio over your amazing stereo. The Microphone for Room Perfect along with Microphone stand and Microphone cable are all included. I'll give you a money back gaurantee and let you purchase my demo unit and when it is returned in the same condition you got it in I'll either refund your money or send you a new TDAI 2170, which ever you prefer.

Simply plug your sources into the Lyngdorf and use it's digital out into your DAC and your DAC into your system as you have always done, This way you will get the benefits of room perfect and the sound of your DAC and system, it only makes it better. http://www.hometheaterhifi.com/Lyngdorf Audio TDAI-2170 Fully-Digital Integrated Amplifier Review Integrated Amplifiers Written by Robert Ebeling Published on 16 February 2015 FacebookTweetGoogle +1ShareThisPinterestLyngdorf Audio TDAI-2170 Fully-Digital Integrated Amplifier Review HighlightsIntegrated amplifiers have never enjoyed the same respect audiophiles pay to separate components. Similarly, Class D amplification has been the “Scarlet Letter” of the high-end audio realm due to a sea of mass-market amplifiers that make more “noise” than “music”. Borrowing heavily from technologies developed for the cost-no-object Steinway Lyngdorf audio systems (yes, THAT Steinway) the TDAI-2170 aims not to simply level the high-end audio playing field, but to flip it on its head entirely. Fundamentally different from traditional Class D amplifiers, the sleek TDAI-2170 produces a sound so clean, so neutral, so devoid of any sonic signature, it disappears completely and restores the emotional response that made me fall in love with music to begin with. Lyngdorf Audio TDAI-2170 Fully-Digital Integrated Amplifier Highlights Summary • Fully-digital, unbroken signal path maintains audio integrity with no negative feedback loop • “RoomPerfect” room correction software is incredibly easy to use and produces an immediately noticeable improvement in sound • “Intersample Clipping Correction” combats the “Loudness War” and restores the lost fidelity at the cost of slightly decreased volume overall • Modular design allows for adaptation to any listening environment • Simple, intuitive interface makes navigation easy and customization a snap • Completely disappears in any system, letting the music speak for itself • “Blackground” – the most silent background of any audio component, of any type, at any cost Introduction to the Lyngdorf Audio TDAI-2170 Fully-Digital Integrated Amplifier ReviewThere are many, many among us who have been charmed by convenience while unknowingly slowly sacrificing quality. I have seen seasoned audiophiles poke fun at those of us who insist on having our music wherever we go, claiming soon those individuals will no longer be able to differentiate between music and hitting a bucket with a wet mop. I take some issue with this point of view because I love music, and I love it with me, 24/7. I firmly believe the vast majority of individuals with white earbuds attached to their external auditory canals, can very much indeed tell the difference between higher and lower fidelity sound, they’ve just never had the opportunity! Enter Lyngdorf Audio’s new, fully digital integrated stereo amplifier, the TDAI 2170. Priced as a quality midlevel component, Lyngdorf Audio aims directly at the “iPod Generation” with a clean, adaptable user interface and uncompromising technology packaged in an elegant, familiar design. In Lyngdorf Audio’s attempt to show a new generation of 20- and 30-somethings how music is meant to be heard, they created a component so well executed it also lays waste to many so called “high-end” components costing multiples of its price.

Most modern electronics come well packed with plenty of molded Styrofoam, plastic sleeves, and double boxes to prevent noticeable damage to the contents. When the TDAI-2170 arrived there was not the usual small shift that one hears when something heavy is surrounded by Styrofoam and moved about; opening the outer box revealed its silent secret. The integrated amp was suspended between two sheets of clear, thick (and quite resilient) plastic film, not unlike a thick version of kitchen plastic wrap. These two sheets were themselves each attached to a cardboard square frame that occupied the perimeter of the box, each ½ the box’s height, positioning the two films as a “sandwich” of sorts.This rather unusual design resulted in the 18lb integrated amplifier “floating” inside the outer box with several inches between it and the nearest side. The plastic film acted similarly to a rubber band to dampen any shock the unit incurred during transit. In speaking with Claus Glaesner, CEO of HTP USA and head of US distribution for Lyngdorf Audio, apparently in transit the TDAI-2170 can fall from 8 feet and land on any surface, at any angle and not sustain damage, physical or otherwise. Little did I know this seemingly unnecessary, but clearly over-engineered detail would serve as a prelude to the dogma of Lyngdorf Audio.The chassis itself feels overbuilt and bombproof solid. Think Sherman tank construction with Ferrari finish. Needless to say, the TDAI-2170 feels quite substantial given its rather compact size.Lyngdorf Audio calls the TDAI-2170’s design “modern Industrial” composed of matte black aluminum and black glass.I call it clean, simple, and sexy! Its design keeps in step with previous Lyngdorf Steinway products. If you are unfamiliar their designs, it has a similar aesthetic appeal as Bang and Olufson or even Apple.The face is clean and elegant, and unlike many components laden with rocker switches, dials, and buttons, the TDAI-2170 only two dials that adorn the face, one fairly small that serves to select the input and the other rather large (spans nearly the entire height of the chassis) to control the volume. Much like the ingeniously designed packing, the volume control was not simply produced, but feels crafted, like someone actually cared what it felt like when you turned it. The dial has weight and inertia to it, with a smooth glide – no “steps”, clicks, or cheap, hollow knobs here my friends! The use of just two dials also felt very familiar; it reminds me of an iPod of sorts.Initially, the display was fairly unreadable from traditional listening distances, and I must not have been the only one to call the company about this seemingly small (pun fully intended), but functionally important detail. Not long after I asked Claus about this, a software upgrade was released which corrected this. Users will rejoice in knowing updating the software was exceedingly easy to do; no connecting to the Wi-Fi, no running Ethernet to the chassis, simply download to a USB flash drive and plug it into the back! The TDAI-2170 recognizes its update files and automatically extracts and installs them.Functionality-From a functionality standpoint, the TDAI-2170 is modular, expandable and customizable. Rather than taking the all too common approach of saying, “Here is what you need.” Lyngdorf Audio chose the high road and instead asks, “What do you need?” The TDAI-2170 is available with several options so the listener can truly add only what he/she needs.The “stock” TDAI-2170 comes with all the internal software, inputs and outputs one would expect from a two channel integrated amplifier, with digital and analog inputs, well-built 5-way binding posts, etc. However, should the need/desire arise, there are an additional three modules that can be ordered with the TDAI-2170: an audiophile USB board, an HDMI board, and a high-end analog board.Arguably the most useful of the trio is a USB (type B) input. This allows the user to then connect the TDAI to any digital audio source, streaming device, or directly to one’s computer for playback high-resolution audio. With the USB board, the TDAI-2170 will handle up to 32-bit resolution and sampling frequency up to 384kHz. It will also handle native 2.8MHz and 5.6MHz DSD content as well (DSD64 and DSD128 respectively). I found this input was nearly essential, as all of my hi-resolution audio files are stored on my computer and the cable made for a “no muss, no fuss” connection. Keeping with the unbroken digital path mantra, this connection did indeed produce the best sound from the TDAI-2170.With the optional HDMI 1.4 board installed, the TDAI-2170 becomes a ridiculously adept control center for an existing complete system as well. This module brings with it 4 HDMI inputs and an output enabling you to connect a Blu-ray player, satellite/cable box, and media player (with an additional input for whatever else you may have) with only one cable going to the TV. It is fully CEC and ARC compatible as well.In an interview with Flemming Smith, Sales Director for Steinway Lyngdorf, I asked, “Why the inclusion of an HDMI module?” It almost seems a bit sacrilegious to add a video module to not just any audio component, but a dedicated TWO-CHANNEL audio component! Gasp!Flemming’s first comment was on the HDMI cable itself, “HDMI is NOT just for video! It has some of the best audio transmission capabilities of any cable today.” His second comment struck a chord with me, “Today its all media . . . our TV finds radio stations and we watch movies on our phone; it is no longer divided into music, radio, TV, etc. This newer way of thinking creates an interactive experience. The user can determine if the TDAI will be used for high end two-channel audio or as an elegant receiver.” He was right. The traditional idea of what brought us music versus video is no longer entirely correct. I use my TVs more or less as the GUI to access data, regardless of whether or not the end result is video.Flemming also commented that with the TDAI-2170, you no longer have to spend additional money on speakers if you already have a sound bar. Lyngdorf Audio has included their proprietary room correction software, “RoomPerfect”, with the TDAI to ensure it plays very nicely with sound bars and makes them sound at their best, despite being placed in traditionally “bad spots” (i.e.: flat against a wall and frequently at less than optimal height).The third available module is a high-end analog input board. It has three sets of RCA right and left inputs, which while nice, on their own does not warrant the additional cost of the module, but what does is a set of fully balanced XLR inputs. Now your turntable and phono amp can join the party.I thought this was a particularly wise move on Lyngdorf Audio’s part, rather than just focusing on bringing the iPod generation into the high end audio world they chose to be inclusionary rather than exclusionary. “We wanted to make sure you could hook up ANY source to the TDAI-2170 and it could handle it. And since some of the best source material is in the analog domain, we wanted to be sure to include the ability to handle this format.” said Claus during one of our discussions.The TDAI-2170, as the name suggests, puts out 170 watts per channel to two channels into 4 Ohms with both channels driven. Although it is technically a “Class D” amplifier, it would be a mistake to assume this is simply a high-end version of a traditional “Class D” amplification.The topography of the Lyngdorf Audio TDAI-2170 is true “fully-digital” amplification, not traditional class D. In the TDAI-2170 (using digital inputs) the signal never leaves the digital domain until the final output stage where it converts the PCM signal to PWM output, a relatively simple task.Many of our readers are well versed in the various modes of amplification, but for those who have not committed our Secrets Primer on “Amplifier Class of Operation” to memory, here is a brief introduction to class D amplification. I am not rehashing this here for my own benefit, but I feel it is of great importance to understand how the Lyngdorf Audio TDAI-2170 is fundamentally different from other class D amplifiers.First, class “D” amplification does not stand for “digital” amplification; although this misnomer has worked its way into our culture so thoroughly I hear it in almost every audio discussion and see it on nearly every audio blog/board. “D” simply happened to be the next letter in the alphabet when it was being defined as a type of amplification. (Yes there is a class “C”, but it has characteristics that make it unsuitable for audio signal amplification and finds most of its use in radio frequency amplification realm.) Class D amplifiers are also referred to as “switching” amplifiers, meaning the transistors (commonly MOFSET) in the amplifier operate as switches (fully “on” to fully “off”) instead of linear gain devices, as in class A.Second, “digital” amplifiers (with very few exceptions) aren’t. They actually receive their signal in analog form, then convert it to digital so it can be manipulated/tweaked/caressed, converted BACK to analog, amplified, and sent to the speaker terminals. The more the signal is manipulated, the less and less it sounds like the original signal. Since we really only want the original signal amplified, this causes some problems.While there are many faults inherent to class D amplification, I will limit this discussion to the largest faults as there are books dedicated to the subject. In broad strokes, the timing of the switching in class D amplification is the largest source of audible problems, with “dead time” being particularly guilty. Dead time is the time when both of the transistors are “off” and no signal is conducted. Dead time in the tenths of nano-seconds can generate in excess of 1% Total Harmonic Distortion (THD). Moving from 40ns dead time to 15ns dead time can drop the THD from >2% to <0.2%; clearly dead time needs to be as short as possible to create an accurate, low-distortion output signal. So a faster clock would be highly desirable? Yes, up to a point. If the switching is faster than the actual transistors can move between fully on and off, you run into the transistor being switched off still conducting when the transistor being switched on starts conducting – resulting in a short.As I alluded to above, timing also plays a role in the transistors themselves. The amount of time each transistor spends between fully “on” to fully “off” can adversely affect the sound and greatly shorten the life of the amplifier itself. This transition creates a state in which each transistor has significant resistance, which equals significant heat. Because class D amplifiers were not designed to handle excessive heat this can cause significant damage to the circuitry.But better timing in amplifiers, much like in its wrist bound brethren, is not cheap, nor is it the best way for mass marketed class D amplifiers to deal with high THD.Far and away the most popular method of dealing with some of these inherent errors and improve the noise of the amplifier is by the use of a negative feedback loop. Negative feedback is a method used to correct for the non-linearity of an amplifier by feeding the output waveform of the amplifier back into the input stage enabling the internal circuitry to correct for deviations caused by the pulse-width modulator, output stage, supply voltage, or any internal source of audio distortion. As more and more negative feedback is generated, the THD drops further and further. This sounds like a great idea, and it is . . . to a point. Unfortunately this also amplifies higher order harmonics that may not have been audible previously but now are able to be heard. So while the specs may show an unbelievably low THD, the amplifier itself does not sound anywhere close to perfect; a classic example of theoretical perfection resulting in real world failure.To Lyngdorf Audio’s credit, rather than providing a mechanism to compensate for inherent problems with mass-market class “D” amplifiers, they went to the source of the problem(s) . . . and there are many.For starters, the internal clock used in the TDAI-2170 runs at 400kHz, not just several multiples of the oft used 20kHz (supposed upper range of human hearing), but more than an order of magnitude bigger! This combined with custom, high quality (not to mention fast) transistors nearly eliminates the biggest source of distortion, timing. They also isolate each component to limit the impact each has on the other. Because of this quality of design and build, the TDAI-2170 has NO feedback, and thus no need for a feedback loop! Thus the proverbial dog can stop chasing its tail.To demonstrate this lack of feedback, Claus eventually convinced me to do something against all reason. He wanted me to have the TDAI-2170 actively running a signal, press “stop”, put my ear up to the speaker, and quickly turn the volume all the way up. After a brief moment of being convinced I had just gone deaf, I realized what had happened . . . because the TDAI has no internal sources of noise, when there is no signal being amplified there is simply, nothing. This example illustrates the (very near) technical perfection of the TDAI-2170 as an amplifier and serves as the backdrop to one of the best, most enjoyable, listening experiences I have had.Lyngdorf Audio also recognizes the importance of combatting the “Loudness War.” Not only does this phenomenon result in crazy volume swings between different tracks, but also degrades the music itself. All converters, DA, AD, or otherwise cannot process signal above 0dBFS, and that information gets clipped (not included in the output signal). To prevent this loss of audio information Lyngdorf Audio employs “Intersample Clipping Correction” software. When the TDAI encounters a signal that extends above 0dBFS, it upconverts it to 200kHz, identifies what peak should be there, calculates it and restores it. The TDAI-2170 then reduces the loudness of the entire track by the difference between the peak that WAS clipped and 0dBFS. All of that happens in real time before the signal reaches the amplification stage.The top bar in Figure 4 shows the clipped output waveform produced in other converters and the bottom shows the TDAI-2170’s reconstructed waveform with the entire audio signal intact, but with an overall reduced amplitude (volume).I did notice a slight but perceptible decrease in volume overall during my time with the TDAI-2170. In my interview I asked Flemming if he thought listeners would initially be turned off due to the apparent loss of volume. He chuckled a bit and replied, “The reduction in overall volume is not noticeable to most people, but the reduction in compression is noticeable to almost everyone.” It may have been for kicks, but Lyngdorf Audio included a setting on the TDAI-2170 where it would display how clipped the audio signal was before processing, which I found strangely entertaining. Go to Page 3: SetupIntegrated Amplifiers Written by Robert Ebeling Published on 16 February 2015 Setup of the Lyngdorf Audio TDAI-2170 Fully-Digital Integrated AmplifierWhile I have not personally set up many integrated amplifiers, the ones I have did not have room correction software. In my mind room correction software was always associated with multichannel audio, which required a receiver or pre/pro, most of which come with the latest flavor of Audessy, Dirac, ARC (in Anthem’s case), etc. I always figured you wanted your main speakers to sound their best in a given room you would move them and tweak them until you found the best position for them. Or at least this is what I have done for two-channel audio.Lyngdorf Audio recognizes two very important and nearly universal truths: 1) 99% of the time we cannot control the dimensions of the room or what it is made of, but can control where the speakers are placed (to varying degrees) and 2) the room around the speakers probably has the largest impact on the sound heard (except for the speakers themselves). So while performing room correction measurements is not a new thing for me, performing them for a dedicated 2-channel system is.The room correction software the TDAI uses is called “Room Perfect”, and claims to make your speakers “sound exactly as the manufacturer intended them to, not the way your room’s limitations make them sound.” A bold statement to say the least. Before I had actually used the “RoomPerfect” correction software I was skeptical at best; sure it could be good or even great, but perfect? In a discussion with Claus Glaesner over the name “RoomPerfect” he commented “We didn’t name it “RoomGood” or “RoomBetter” because it isn’t! It’s perfect!”To achieve said sound, there is only one prerequisite (and one I’m sure most would actually like): place your speakers as close to the wall as possible to reduce the delayed reflections from walls.The theory is the fewer delayed reflections around the room, the easier it would be to account for them in the software. Even without taking the test microphone out of the box I knew I already had a problem. My reference speakers are a pair of highly upgraded VonSchweikert VR-7SE MK2’s; they are so modified the model ID plate reads: “VR-7SE MK3 #001”. Albert VonSchweikert originally built the pair for himself, but did not meet the WAF (Wife Acceptance Factor). While his modifications made for mind-bending audio, they also made for rather heavy (~500lbs each) and rather stable (spiked to my home’s foundation) speakers. And while I could not move them against the wall (or anywhere without some serious help for that matter), I could turn off the rear ambience driver. As I mentioned before, for two channel listening I had found the ideal spot for my speakers and assumed I would not have to move them to any significant degree . . . ever.The TDAI-2170 includes a microphone and cable as most companies do for taking room measurements, but that is where the similarities end. The microphone is an honest to goodness real calibration microphone one might find in a professional calibration kit. The provided cable is a balanced XLR cable, not just a long version of cheap headphone cables typically supplied. Audiophiles rejoice! As if that were not enough, Lyngdorf Audio also included a professional microphone stand, a welcome treat from having to find your camera’s tripod (if one even exists) and finagle the individual legs to accommodate being on a couch, over a table, on the floor, etc. All this is to say Lyngdorf Audio is serious and cares a great deal about the sound you hear from their products, and believes the process for obtaining said sound should be as clean as possible. The actual room calibration was the simplest and fastest I have ever performed. Unlike other software where you are asked to be perfectly quiet and place the microphone in specific locations around the room, here you are asked specifically NOT to care about where it's placed. In fact, they encourage you to take measurements near the ceiling, the floor, high, low, between the speakers, etc. so the TDAI-2170 gets to understand your room, in all its faults. It only took 4 locations to get 95% “room understanding” and 7 to get 99%! Last I checked needed a minimum of 9 locations to get anything close to (what I previously thought was) descent correction for the standard software included in the majority of pre/pros and receivers.The menu layout in the TDAI-2170 follows suit with the clean mindset used throughout the rest of the component. Care was taken to make common tasks happen with the fewest movements. Switching from “global” room correction to “focus” room correction took two button pushes. Selecting a different input was a simple push on the remote, or turn of the smaller knob on the front of the TDAI-2170. Given the possibility of multiple inputs, Lyngdorf Audio made it easy to rename any of them without having to “drill down” 17 layers of menus, and made it easy to skip over inputs with no connection. Go to Page 4: In UseIntegrated Amplifiers Written by Robert Ebeling Published on 16 February 2015 The Lyngdorf Audio TDAI-2170 Fully-Digital Integrated Amplifier In UseHonestly, I didn’t believe it at first; but after switching back and forth from the TDAI and my reference system (for which I used 20 mic locations to dial in) I can say for two channel audio the TDAI-2170 handily beat my system silly. The main reason for this piece of humble pie has to do with the absence of feedback alluded to earlier.Many reviewers in both the video and audio realm (myself included) often refer to the absence of color or sound (where appropriate) as the “blackness” of a product, and the blacker the better. As the background gets blacker and blacker (more and more silent), you begin to hear things in familiar recordings you haven’t heard before, or at least couldn’t precisely identify. The Lyngdorf Audio TDAI-2170 was so silent it disappeared from my system entirely! Those readers who follow me on my quest for “audio truth” will recall I carefully choose my audio components to be as absolutely neutral and silent as possible; I want to hear what the artist meant to be heard, not what my system makes it sound like.I listen to a fairly wide variety of music on a daily basis, so you may notice I do not stick to a single genre when reviewing. What you should garner from this review and the others I write, even if your musical tastes differ from mine, is over arching themes to components rather than specifics relating to any particular track.Because my system and the TDAI-2170 use different volume scales, I used an SPL meter to ensure I was listening to both systems at the same level in order to avoid simply favoring the loudest of the pair. One of the more unique groups I like is VAST, a rather esoteric ambient electro-rock band from Austin. The track “Don’t take your love away from me” clearly conveys the size of the space the band recorded in. While the “hollow-ness” of the sound isn’t subtle, it was more real through the TDAI-2170 than I had remembered. The notes from the upright bass came through clearly and its position became more defined. You could actually hear the fingers on the strings, not just the notes. To VAST’s credit, these elements were purposefully placed to add a level of emptiness that make the audience emotionally involved in the song. This was very apparent on the TDAI-2170, more so than on other systems I’ve heard. I find Madonna’s “Sound of Goodbye” from the 1998 release of Ray of Light to be a very telling track that rapidly reveals a system’s ability to image and create soundstage. I love to play this track for “non-believers” who insist no system can create a truly “believable” soundstage beyond the width of the speakers. My system does this particularly well, so I was already expecting a wide soundstage. As the song began playing through the TDAI-2170, there was a moment my brain thought, “How is this playing through my surrounds?” That instant is when you know you have something special: when you can fool your brain, which knows only the main speakers are connected, into thinking otherwise. However brief that moment may be matters little because the realization that it happened at all is startling and slightly unsettling. Elizabeth Fraser lent her ethereal vocals to Massive Attack’s “Teardrop”, originally released in 1998 on the album Mezzanine. Her airy notes were haunting, put into perfect space and time by the TDAI-2170. The piano notes were as believable as if one had been in the room and again placed deftly into the soundstage by the TDAI-2170. This amazing detail and clarity layered with the grainy, raw hissing and popping from the background “turntable” made for a rather emotional listening experience. Possibly the most impressive display of the TDAI’s prowess came during the Smashing Pumpkin’s “Appels + Oranjes” off of the 1998 album Adore. "Appels + Oranjes" contains only electronic instruments and front man Billy Corgan's vocals. I find the tack quite haunting; this is perhaps magnified by the isolation of Corgan’s whiney lyrics, as there is no other “real” instrument to compete with. On the TDAI-2170, I no longer had a track, but a live solo performance! There is a slight drift up and then down in tone as Corgan languishes over the last syllable in the line “It came from your thoughts, your dreams and visions,” that sounded more life-like than I’ve ever heard before. My listening notes very accurately recount the experience: “Speakers disappeared entirely. Very striking. Billy Corgan’s whining voice came through with utmost clarity . . . strangely more real than on other systems.” Releasing their first full-length album Sirens just this past October, Gorgon City’s English dynamic duo is relatively new on the music scene. The fifth track on the album, “FTPA”, is my favorite for a number of reasons. There are soulful vocals, deep bass, and it finishes with a beautiful trumpet solo. I heard the group perform live at TomorrowWorld 2014 this September in Georgia, and very rarely does a song performed on a small stage, with 11 other stages going simultaneously, stop people in their tracks as this one did. There is clearly a difference in live music at a festival and the quiet of a recording studio, but it does give you some sort of baseline to go off of. Once again, the TDAI-2170 provided Über-clarity at any listening level, specifically highlighted by the trumpet solo in the last 45 seconds of the track. The miniscule clicks of the trumpet valves as the musician seduces the notes from the brass are ever so quiet, but clearly recorded. This resolution is a direct result of the TDAI’s absolutely black background, thus uncovering these faintest of sounds.Were there faults to the TDAI-2170? Maybe. On occasion I felt the TDAI-2170 didn’t extend all the way down to the subterranean bass levels my system could dive to, but this was not an easy pickup. Only after listening to the same tack over and over on both systems, and bouncing frequently between them did I notice this. Even then it was limited to a few sequences in the rare track designed to push limits of bass. Some of my dearest friends (with very good ears) did not think there was any difference in bass, and if there was, it was so miniscule it would only be noticed on certain test tracks and only if you were looking for it. The only other critique I have for the TDAI-2170 is less of a real world issue and more of a testing issue. At 170 Watts per channel, the TDAI is capable of driving most speakers at regular listening volumes with enough headroom to be plenty dynamic. However, when listening to demanding rock or electronica in my theater/listening room (10’H x 15’10”W x 23’D) at concert levels, the TDAI-2170 couldn’t match the dynamics and attack of my reference system. Although at those levels I’m more or less asking, “Can it do this?” rather than enjoying the music. Even then, the music sounded better overall on the TDAI-2170. Go to Page 5: ConclusionsIntegrated Amplifiers Written by Robert Ebeling Published on 16 February 2015 Conclusions about the Lyngdorf Audio TDAI-2170 Fully-Digital Integrated AmplifierAt a base price of $3,999, the TDAI is by no means inexpensive. I would however challenge any integrated amplifier (or separates for that matter) to perform at the TDAI’s level in the real world with the clean elegance it pulls off. Claus Glaesner refers to the TDAI-2170 as “High-end audio for the iPod Generation.” I would call it simply “High-end for everyone.”If I had to describe the TDAI in one word it would be “clean”. The design is clean, the interface is clean, the sound is clean . . . the entire execution of the package is clean. Adaptable would be a close second. Want to run your high-resolution files from your computer? Got it covered. Really wish you could use it as a receiver? Poof! HDMI board. Need to include your turntable and phono with balanced outputs? Done. If it exists in the audio realm, the TDAI-2170 can play it. The “RoomPerfect” software is exceedingly easy to use and provides outstanding results. So good were the results with the TDAI-2170 and its software I used it exclusively when listening to two-channel audio while it was in my possession.In 2008 Secrets colleague Michael Galvin reviewed Lyngdorf Audio’s SDAI-2175, one of the TDAI-2170’s predecessors, and was amazed at the shear absence of any sonic signature. I think he would happily agree the TDAI-2170 carries this lack of signature to a new level! Rather than re-invent a way to describe the shear silence and profound neutrality the TDAI delivers, I’ll just use his words: “(it) disappears better than most audio components are able to do anything”.So silent is the TDAI-2170, I highly recommend Lyngdorf Audio look into trademarking the background silence in audio media and rename it “black-ground.” It is truly the most silent background I have ever heard, on any system, of any kind.In the end, it is really what Lyngdorf Audio eliminated from the traditional Class D amplifier that makes the TDAI stand above others. By going to the source of “noise” in the amplifier and solving each problem individually with no short cuts or bypasses, Lyngdorf Audio has redefined what a “Class D” amplifier should sound like – absolutely nothing.“Music is the space between the notes.” - Claude Debussy Contact Neal Van Berg email@example.com or call 720 308 4000

Classe CAP-2100 Integrated Amplifier Recently Factory S...
A pristine integrated amplifier for true stereophonic listening excellence. Little or no cosmetic issues with the unit. As it relates to its sonic fidelity, What HiFi offered the following description: "Classe CAP-2100 delivers a fast, detailed sound with an exciting amount of insight into the midrange, especially vocalists. The soundstage is large and sharply focused, and tonality is beautifully judged." Originally released in 2004, with a MSRP of $4900, this unit is dated by Classe to have been originally purchased in 2008. This piece of equipment is still a classic- designed for two-channel music systems with a low-level sources, high-powered amplifier components with 100 watts per channel at 8 ohms, low-noise toroidal transformers, digital control circuits, three line-level inputs (one upgradeable to a MM/MC phono stage), a tape loop, and a pair of balanced inputs alongside a preamp out. For a review: http://www.hometheaterhifi.com/volume_12_4/classe-cap-2100-integrated-amplifier-10-2005-part-1.html For manual: http://www.classeaudio.com/pdfs/Owners_manuals/Discontinued/CAP-2100_ENG_2-1.pdf You will be buying a factory-refurbished unit. Because of a left channel pre-amplification stage issue, the unit was returned to the Classe’ factory in Quebec, Canada for evaluation and repair. I have received word that unit had a minor issue and has been repaired- with a change in one of the boards. The unit is now restored to original factory standards. See enclosed repair estimate, which was completed and satisfied. The unit was bought two years ago from a single owner audiophile (through Audiogon) but has received little use. (In fact, the unit has sat on a shelf for most of this time in a climate controlled room in a smoke free home.) The item will be shipped directly from Classe’ manufacturing facility in Quebec to your location or may be picked up locally in Quebec at the Classe factory. It will carry a 90-day warranty after repairs. If you have any questions, call six-one-five-three-zero-five-six-zero-nine-zero or email: firstname.lastname@example.org for further information.

ModWright LLC KWI-200 w/DAC
I am the second owner of this KWI-200 and have had it for 2 years. It is a fantastic integrated amplifier and is built like a tank. You can find lots of reviews online that will give you a good idea of what it sounds like -- Very articulate(the DAC has one of the blackest backgrounds I have ever heard), never runs out of power, and maintains a tight grip on bass. Incredibly dynamic! The upgrade bug has bit me again so I am looking for separates and a preamp. Comes with the remote and original packaging. I will pay for shipping in the continental US at my asking price. 3% adder for Paypal
