What’s new?

As a signal source, the new Musicbook Source has an even more complete equipment than the previous models. It offers connections for analog and digital devices as well as top-level streaming.
The new streaming platform is already known from our Limetree series and has been extended by some more features. For example, the unit is now fully operable via the Lindemann app including comprehensive, customer-specific setting options. Thus a remote control is no longer imperatively required.

Another highlight are resolutions of up to /24bit and DSD 256. This is all possible also with WLAN because the device features up-to-date diversity antenna technology.

The supply of streaming services covers any audiophile wishes: TIDAL, Qobuz, Deezer, Highresaudio, and soon also Spotify Connect. Of course, the Musicbook is Roon Ready. Owing to an automatic “Connect“ button, the device will also link to the router within seconds.

Another feature is the possibility to play back CDs directly from the unit

Apropos! Here’s more news from the converter department. The circuitry is now based on one of the world’s finest sounding converter modules, the AK4493. It offers extremely low distortions, an exemplary musicality and extraordinary resolutions of up to 768kHz and DSD512! In the Musicbook this high-flyer is run in mono mode to further enhance resolution and dynamics. The converter is assisted by a power supply of superlatives. Less than 1 µV of noise and interference speak a clear language.

Our re-sampling concept, which will soon be 20 years old and was realized for the first time in the legendary CD1, is now carried to extremes in the new Musicbook. Re-sampling with the best sample rate converter on the world market (180 dBs dynamics, 32-bit resolution) into a DSD signal of ultimate precision opens up totally new worlds of sound for digital music reproduction. For the reference clock we rely on the currently most innovative timing technology: an MEMS Femto-Clock which shows no ageing and is not vibration-sensitive, either.

The already excellent analog output stage was further improved as well. More powerful drivers now also enable the use of headphones with a magnetostatic drive and a low sensitivity. The level adjustment is done quite easily in the app settings. Even as a headphone preamp the new Musicbook is now simply world class.


Another novelty is the phono stage for MM cartridges. It has been taken directly from the Limetree Phono and plays just marvelous. Even phono stages which cost several times as much can in most cases not compete.
