19.12.2012Science meets Sorcery

Two major print publications have recently released excellent reviews.


Magazine "Fidelity", Issue 1/13 / GERMANY / 830S & 858 / "Do you believe in Magic?"

"As close to the music as you can get with today's technology."

"...not only a flawless, first class performance, but also a magical experience."

"For me these amplifiers are the discovery of the year."

This review will be available for download on our website soon.


Magazine "The Absolute Sound", Issue #225 / USA/ USB-DAC 24/192 / "Four DACs from $699 to $3600"

"Putting an $1100 DAC against a $3500 one would not be considered a fair fight under most circumstances, but to give you an idea of how well the Lindemann DAC performs, that is its competition."

"...if audio quality is your primary purchase criteria you'll be hard-pressed to find a DAC that convincingly beats it."

26.06.2012High End / Hifi Deluxe 2012

Roy Gregory, the longtime editor of Hi-Fi+, has looked around at this year's High End and the off-site HiFi Deluxe parallel show.

He writes:

"Few systems you’ll hear will be as lucid and immediately communicative as an all-Lindemann setup...Lindemann could just be one of the audio industry’s best-kept secrets."

No wonder that Lindemann ranks among the top-five of great sounding rooms.

24.04.2012International reviews online

Birdland BL-10 speaker (Jack Roberts):

"The sound totally defies their size. It’s hard to not talk about how good these speakers are for their size, but the truth is they are really good among speakers of any size."

825 HD Disc Player (Ed Momkus):

"If you are considering spending five figures for a DAC/transport, by all means, go listen to the $30,000 and up units. But after you've done that be sure to compare the Lindemann 825. You just might find yourself with some significant money you can give to charity or pay for another semester or two of your children's college education."

16.12.2011Birdland BL-10 reviewed by German HiFi magazine

After the fantastic review of our 825 HD Disc Player, the German High-End Magazine "Hoererlebnis" had a look at our compact monitor BL-10 this time. The result was really impressive: For Mr. Wippermann, the writer, the Birdland BL-10 "is simply the best compact monitor" he has ever experienced so far. Well, there is nothing to add.

Unfortunately this review is only available in German yet.

There are more reviews coming up in English though - stay tuned!

24.10.2011New review of the 825 available!

In the current issue of the German High Fidelity Magazine "Hoererlebnis" the Lindemann 825 HD Disc Player received another outstanding review. "Review" is not the right term here - since "Hoererlebnis" is a magazine by readers for readers. That means no advertising, no rankings and no classifications. Just a description of the pure listening experience.

06.10.2011Lindemann presenting new Integrated Amplifier

The first US appearance of the new 885 Integrated Power Amplifier will debut this October at RMAF 2011. This unique amplifier design represents a pinnacle in the evolution of solid state technology.

The 885 opens a whole new chapter: the circuit design principle of the “single ended push-pull” amplifier, which was derived from valve technology, is being employed for the first time ever in a fully-symmetrical transistor amplifier with current feedback. The unique combination of these technologies yield a decisive advantage in audio quality: providing the listener with increased "speed", "accuracy", musical realism, and less listening fatigue at all volume levels.

  • Dual-mono configuration
  • Symmetrical signal processing
  • Push-pull output stage
  • Intelligent quiescent current adjustment
  •  “Current mode” amplifier


RMAF 2011: 11th Floor, Room #1118 & 4th Floor, Room #407

Norbert Lindemann will be on hand, from Germany, to further explain this unique approach. Come and audition our Lindemann system as we provide a musical presentation consisting of: Analog, High Definition Computer Streaming and Compact Disc.
