    Lindemann MB15

    Welcome to a Pre-Loved Listing from Elite Audio The Natural Choice for true two channel high-end Hi Fi in the UK Lindemann is synonymous for reference class products, and this unit from the Music Book line, is no different. The Musicbook 15 offers a built-in CD player. It is a USB digital-to-analog converter with a superb sound quality, which enables the music reproduction from the computer in studio mastering quality. Resolutions of up to 384 kHz PCM and DSD 256 are easily handled. It is also a quite outstanding CD player. The flexibility of the Musicbook:15 DSD doesn't stop there, it can do a lot more. The integrated analog pre-amp, which also doubles as an excellent headphone amp, allows the connection of a phono preamp and thus offers a consummate audiophile quality also with vinyl records. In terms of technology the Musicbook:15 DSD is definitely way ahead of the competition. Using a sophisticated recalculation all digital audio signals are converted into DSD 128/256, a data format which is highly esteemed by audiophiles worldwide. Thus the actual digital-analog conversion is reduced to a mere filtering of the DSD signal. This completely new approach is the secret behind the Musicbook’s exceptionally good sound. Don't take our word for it, here's what Fidelity Magazine of Germany had to say: ''The audiophile book consistently serves-up a sound that is highly addictive'' Hi Fi Wigwam UK thought: ''There was a very natural clarity of the voices, you can hear all the words being sung'' This unit is pre-loved with one former custodian, and is in excellent condition, supplied by Elite Audio originally Supplied in all original packing Balance of warranty (Minimum 12 months) Please contact us for more information on this listing: info@eliteaudiouk.com / 01334 570 666 / www.eliteaudiouk.com
  6. STEALTH AUDIO USB T-SELECT - 1M - RRP £1300 - BARGAIN AT £595. A rare chance to purchase a great example of a Stealth Audio USB T-Select Cable. Stealth Audio USB cables are flat in cross-section and reasonably flexible. The conductive material is a proprietary copper-based alloy. The USB connectors are proprietary STEALTH, with real carbon fibre shells. The flat USB connector features a tactile orientating tab – for easy installation. This particular model is The Select version, and is made of all hand-picked selected parts and wires; the cables is hand-tuned using Stealth Audio’s proprietary measuring equipment, it is a labour-intensive and lengthy procedure, hence why the price for the Select is higher. Great time to save on the new RRP of over £1300.00 Supplied in all original packing 24-month warranty provided For more information, contact us on: info@eliteaudiouk.com / 01334 570 666 / www.eliteaudiouk.com
  7. 'Morning, There are a few schools of thought on this: Yes, you will never recover info that was never there You can, achieve, to some people's ears, better imaging, separation and so on from using a device like the Wyred4Sound. It doesn't upsample, rather it re-clocks the signal resulting in less compression and sorts any timing issues. Like most pieces of kit, trust your ears!

  11. Eden Acoustics TÔMEI Active Loudspeaker | Hi-Fi Stars Magazine Review A system for gourmetsIt is well known that excellent loudspeakers come from Canada. However, the different models have so far appeared as rather down-to-earth constructions. With Eden Acoustics (coming from Montreal), a modern designer enters the worldwide loudspeaker scene and has a visual impact with his very first work. There are exactly two opinions on this:"like or dislike". There's nothing in between but an indecisive "mmh". When I first saw it, I immediately noticed the technical idea behind it, next to the extraordinary design.The “open air” principleAlso known as "open-baffle", such loudspeaker constructions radiate sound energy to the rear and front with a form of 8 dispersion. The typical sound is very open - airy and spacious, well defined. In addition, the old saying goes: "Where there is no housing - There is no discolouration due to it". I was immediately interested in the Eden Acoustics system and wanted to see if it was critical to position. "Basically not," Robert Ross (the German distributor) said to me. Let us say that the known principles are still valid and I'm very accurate when it comes to setting up speakers anyway. It always paid off in terms of sound.Four modules - one systemThe special feature of this handmade loudspeaker system is - apart from its futuristic appearance - its components. Clearly the two satellite loudspeakers are immediately noticeable due to their construction with the neatly lined-up acrylic surfaces and the matching base, which are available in any desired colour. In addition, the elegant wooden stands, inside which the wires are hidden, and of course the wood finishes are also available on request. The drivers used are a 13cm midrange driver from ScanSpeak's Revelator series and a 4.5cm Satori tweeter. The subwoofer has a 31 cm driver from the same manufacturer. Sinar Baja Electric (an Indonesian loudspeaker manufacturer) has been producing loudspeaker drive for more than 25 years and founded the label SB-Acoustics especially for the high-end loudspeakers market. This series already has an excellent quality, regardless of the price. The manufacturer went one step further and developed the series "Satori" - which in Buddhism means "illumination". Costs played a minor role in the development process, since the goal was to develop drivers that would be better than the previously known ones in all areas.Central componentThe DSP and Class D control unit with five power amplifiers and more than 2000 watts of total power can be seen as the core of the entire system. A 40-bit/192 kHz crossover completes the whole. One high-quality, multi-channel, 40bit/768 kHz DSP module controls the five power amplifiers (one for the bass, two each for midrange and tweeter). The numerous inputs, analog as RCA and XLR, as well as digital (S/PDIF - USB) have multiple predefined settings and therefore the best prerequisites for adapting to each room very quickly. Equipped with all the necessary speaker cables, the manufacturer from North America offers a set that appeals to people with a love for design as well as friends of high-quality sound.Music, music - what can the Eden Acoustics Tômei DSP system do?After the system has been positioned freely in the room (the satellites about one metre from a wall, the subwoofer half a metre away), the selection of the music program corresponds to my typical approach and starts with a woman's voice. Previously, the bass frequency of the subwoofer was cut off at 80 Hz. Via the selected input, the digital signals come from the outstanding music server Entotem Plato (see test in HiFi-Stars 29). I sit in the intimate stereo triangle of about two meters in front of the center in a room of about 20 square meters and listen to Adele's "Hello". The loudspeaker system has already been in use for the recommended 100 hours and the first few tones already show where the journey is heading - wonderfully three-dimensional, spacious and even in orchestral music, the Tômei system shows excellent composure. This immediately makes me curious about classical music. Frédéric Chopin, Prelude in E-Minor (op. 28, no. 4) - yes, here a Steinway grand piano plays completely freely, with hard hung strings light and long notes presented so lively and beautifully. Goosebumps? Yes, indeed! I lean back, forget about the speakers and simply enjoy the listening... Pure musical bliss. Genre change with Gregory Porter to "Water Under Bridges" - yes, I admit, again piano, this time a very catchy black voice corresponds, easily worn by the piano sounds - I'm again desirous of the wonderfully soft sounds, whose fragile three-dimensionality becomes again and again conspicuous. Mostly suboptimally recorded studio recordings of Joe Bonamassa, I rarely get the chance to listen to the musician's records. The live recording "An Acoustic Evening at the Vienna Opera" and "Jockey Full Of Bourbon" make a real exception here - to swing along! And once again, the Eden Acoustics Tômei DSP system's outstanding ability to reproduce voices and natural instruments is striking. The 30 cm chas- sis presents crisp basses with casual sovereignty and the overall idea of the divergent sounds are extremely relaxing without losing the necessary speed. With a presentation like this, everyday life can be moved back and forth easily...In a nutshell…These speakers are not only a feast for the eyes. They easily manage the full spectrum of all kinds of music and they can satisfy even the most demanding audiophile. The fact that the product is available "as desired" covers the entire spectrum of needs/wishes. The active control system ensures problem-free handling in every room and the appearance and finish are sensational. In short: A real winner! IF YOU ARE INTERESTED IN THE EDEN ACOUSTICS TÔMEI ACTIVE LOUDSPEAKER, WHY NOT CONTACT US?
  12. A happy customer has written a review of the Boenicke W11's Richard, who recently purchased a pair of Boenicke W11s from us wrote a short review for us to use which wonderfully captures just how great the W11s are: The courier arrived this morning. I resisted ripping the boxes open straight away and mowed the lawn, leaving the speakers to adjust to the ambient temperature in the house for an hour. I unboxed them and set them up on the swing bases, basically in the same location and toe-in as my VA’s. They haven’t moved since. I know I should play about with toe-in, distance from the wall, etc., but I can’t stop listening to music. My wife is sitting next to me going through some of her favourite tracks. In fact, I can’t get to listen to anything of my own, she’s hijacked the system. A good sign I think! If I had to limit my description of these speakers to one word, its “astonishing”. Aesthetically they are beautiful, and in audio terms, pure joy. They do everything brilliantly, and I’ve experienced what many reviewers say of them, where the speakers seem to disappear, and the music simply appears in a wide soundstage in front of you. Needless to say every track we play has new detail revealed, new musicality imparted, they are just wonderful. A by-product of the swingbase perhaps is the disappearance of the bass nodes I had with the VA’s. If I stood up, or leaned forward a foot from the listening position the bass would noticeably reduce. With the W11’s I don’t get that, in fact it threw me at first. I presume the VA’s are not as well de-coupled from the floor, but I’m no expert. Whatever reason it is, its just another facet of the speakers that is making it very hard for me not to say, “just pick up the VA’s and have done with it”. I hope this mini-review isn’t over-gushing and causing an outbreak of sickness, but I am genuinely that impressed. Many thanks, must get back to the tunes… Richard
