Comprehensive firmware update for all LINDEMANN network players
Good news for all new and old users of the Limetree BRIDGE, Limetree NETWORK and Musicbook SOURCE: in the weeks to come there will be a general and, as usual, free general system update. Beside an enhanced performance and stability, the updated version offers in particular a full panoply of new features. Among these are
● Tidal Connect
● Spotify certification for the Musicbook SOURCE
● a significantly reduced delay on the digital inputs and with Bluetooth
More information and all other improvements will soon be available.
LINDEMANN expands and improves their product range
In addition to the revised versions of already existing products (like e.g. NETWORK II), several all new developments will be added to the Limetree and Musicbook series in the months ahead. But more shall not be revealed on this for now!
The Musicbook POWER II
The list of our many new developments starts with the Musicbook POWER 500 /1000 – Version II. On the face of it, there are no differences in comparison with the previous model, but the new circuit design of the POWER II is a class of its own:
The sonically crucial voltage gain stage was outsourced from the N-CORE module and constructed as a separate circuit. The use of extremely high-grade J-FET amplifiers and a power supply with less than 1 µV of noise level results in an almost perfect amplification of the input signal without any negative influence from class-D amp interference. The N-CORE module is quasi used as a power buffer to provide the already amplified input voltage with the necessary current which is needed for driving loudspeakers. A perfect team with a big sound potential.
The signal detector, which is responsible for turning the amplifier on and off, has been reworked: the sensitivity was raised and at the same time the immunity to interference was lowered by the use of a fully balanced circuit design. The signal detector works only in the left channel now and has therefore the same sensitivity in both operating modes (stereo and bi-amping). Altogether a clear increase in operating safety.
