Lindemann Musicbook Source II Networked DAC/Preamp Review
October 7, 2022 § Leave a comment
Stumbling, perhaps, at the final hurdle, this slimline network player/DAC does so many things right in a technical sense, but somewhere along the way some soul is depleted from the music. That makes the Source II an excellent choice if you like your sound inoffensive and smooth, you have a pair of wayward loudspeakers in need of taming, or you want everything to sound like a hi-fi demonstration.
Hi-Fi News Verdict
There’s no denying the quality of design, build and engineering here, but the sound might possibly divide opinion. Those wanting plenty of snap and snarl from their favourite tracks may find the Source II’s politeness less appealing. However, if you prefer your music rich, refined and smooth, there’s much to like in the Source II’s precise presentation, whether from digital sources or analogue.
