Psych profile for the Lindemann MusicBook Source II CD and Power II 1000…
♦ groomed for neutrality, high resolution and an easy long-term-happy presentation in the best sense of that meaning
♦ only the treble peels out by feeling marginally lighter and fresher though never aggressive
♦ powerful nicely articulated bass, brilliant vocals
♦ first-rate dynamic tracking in the micro/macro ranges well beyond this price range though stage dimensions could be more generous
♦ precisely sorted soundstage with free-floating but tacit images
♦ potent equally neutral headphone socket appropriate for inefficient loads to retire a separate headfi amp if XLR socketry isn't required
♦ extensive featurization as preamp, network player, DAC, headphone amp and CD player in one chassis. In conjunction with the stablemate amp it makes for a one-brand system that leaves precious little to be desired and is finished to a 't'.
♦ the amplifier copies this profile to perfection
