Read the latest review here from Absolute Sound who say TDAI-2170 “The Way of the Future”
The Absolute Sound Calls TDAI-2170 “The Way of the Future”
The TDAI-2170 fully digital integrated stereo amplifier from Lyngdorf Audio is covered in the May/June 2015 issue of the widely-read magazine The Absolute Sound with a comprehensive, four-page review. Robert E. Greene states that the glories of the TDAI-2170 are two-fold, crediting its digital amplification and RoomPerfect™ room correction system.
Regarding digital amplification, he notes, “Still, if you think for some unknown reason that analog is white magic and digital is the work of the Devil, then you will have to summon up some impartiality to discover that you are kidding yourself.”
About RoomPerfect™, Greene states, “Bass smoothness is improved, channel matching is much better in the frequencies affected most by the room, and stereo imaging as well as the presentation of the original recorded acoustics are significantly better. This is all what should happen with a room-correction system, and happen it does. It is hard to imagine that people won’t like this and like it a lot.”
He finishes the review with, “I think the Lyngdorf TDAI-2170 represents the way of the future. And it not only is here now; it is even affordable. The TDAI-2170 is a sonic and practical triumph.”
The TAS review is the latest in a long list of accolades the TDAI-2170 has received since its launch, including receiving The Absolute Sound’s Golden Ear Award in 2014
When Swedish magazine Hifi & Musik tested the Lyngdorf Audio TDAI-2170, the editors were impressed by both the performance of the amplifier and its integrated RoomPerfect™ room correction technology.
“The amplifier packs such an elegant, clear, but imperious punch that you nearly fall over backwards…It makes other amplifiers seem dull and tired. This is an impressively open, powerful, and flexible amplifier for the price,”
The testers were initially reluctant to pay much attention to RoomPerfect™, saying:
“In our experience, room correction requires a lot of fiddling and does not always produce the expected results. We dutifully gave it a try, and there was no turning back. We promise: once you have heard the TDAI-2170 operating within the cleansing properties of RoomPerfect™, you’ll never want to be without it.”
