Latest Addition To My Audio Collection
The Lyngdorf TDAI-1120 integrated amplifier has replaced the Peachtree Decco 125SKY in my bedroom audio system. It's about twice the money of the (now discontinued) Peachtree, but it's at least twice as good. For one thing, it has an HDMI ARC output, so it serves more effectively as a two-channel A/V system. Although it has less power than the Peachtree, its Class D amplifier is a lot better. I can hear a lot more detail out of my old Snell Jii speakers. It's in-house app is much better than the Muzo app on which the Peachtree depends. And, best of all, it comes with Lyngdorf's proprietary Room Perfect system to tailor the sound to the dynamics of the room. Without Room Perfect, it's still a better amp than the Peachtree. With Room Perfect, it's miles ahead. My Snells have never sounded so good. Special thanks to Lyngdorf dealer Jeff Stake Hifi for the great service.
I've been waiting for this LP to arrive for months. Bravo, the great Bobby Watson.
