The first all-in-one music player from LINDEMANN. The logical continuation of the extremely successful Musicbook series. Fully equipped, with a unique design and truly audiophile genes!
The Musicbook COMBO joins the proven streaming platform of the Musicbook SOURCE and the power amp technology of the Musicbook POWER. A multitude of features and connectivity options make your tonal dreams come true. Simply connect the matching speakers – and you’re set to enjoy music in its most beautiful form. Rich in detail and yet relaxed, with a large stage or a small ensemble, with vigorous dynamics or soft and soulful.
No matter whether from streaming services or from a music server, from CDs or LPs, almost every playback is possible and conveniently operable via the app. Also the friends of high-quality headphones get their full money’s worth: the built-in headphone amp sets benchmarks in this class. And the icing on the cake is the excellent phono MM input for turntables!
The Musicbook COMBO is Lindemann’s distillate from 30 years of experience in the development of amplifiers and digital sources. A true all-rounder and the new heart of your hifi system for many years to come.
The circuitry of the Musicbook COMBO has been optimized – around the powerful streaming platform – for ultimate sound properties.
In the digital-analog converter we use one of best sounding converter blocks ever, the AK4493 from Japanese digital specialist AKM. Musically, this module convinces by an enormous wealth of detail, natural timbres and a perfect timing. Prior to the actual conversion, all digital input signals are passed through an ultra precise re-sampling process using an MEMS femto clock. The thus created data are completely free from clock jitter: the fundamental requirement for perfect sound with digital music! A further improvement comes with the option of converting the digital data into a 1-bit signal (DSD). Musically speaking, this operation mode is the icing on the cake and opens up a whole new dimension with the room imaging and high-frequency playback.
The built-in phono MM preamp offers an exceptionally musical reproduction and is identical in design to the highly acclaimed Limetree Phono. The headphone amplifier of the Musicbook also delivers top sound quality and has sufficient output power to drive even demanding headphones. Technically the power amp section of the Musicbook COMBO is identical to the Musicbook POWER. Control and audiophile sound quality go well beyond the price range.
Use the newly developed LINDEMANN app to conveniently control the Musicbook COMBO. This is available for both Android and iOS, for tablets also in the particularly clear landscape mode. The app offers an easy to understand, intuitive control of the different sources and a comprehensive menu for the device settings. That way operating the Musicbook becomes a breeze!
In addition, the integrated multi-room function allows to run several LINDEMANN streamers in different rooms simultaneously or individually.
And if you still want to use the app of your present streaming provider? Owing to the support of services such as Roon, Spotify Connect and Tidal Connect this is no longer a problem. The Musicbook COMBO will react just as reliably to your inputs and commands.
And when your smartphone happens to be out of sight: with the included remote control or the multi-function jog wheel you always have the essential functions of the Musicbook under control.
Sublime Sound Quality
Critical for the sound of a digital component is, above all, the digital/analog converter. LINDEMANN therefore uses also the re-sampling process in the Musicbook COMBO which has become known from the Musicbook Source.
In the DSD mode all digital input signals – irrespective of the source – are converted into a high-resolution 1-bit signal (DSD 256) by means of a re-sampling process based on delta-sigma conversion. The resolution is 256 times higher than with the CD. By simple filtering this signal is converted in the converter module directly into an analog signal – without any influence from digital filters or a digital volume control. Digital signal processors (DSP) and their negative sound effects are completely waived. Filtering and volume control take place in the analog domain exclusively. The music signal gained by this “deconstruction“ of the converter is perfectly transparent: with ultimate resolution, brilliant timbres, unrestricted dynamics and a new, absolutely “realistic” atmosphere which reminds of analog reproduction!
