Lindemann MusicBook Source II and the matching MusicBook Power II have been one of the best kept secrets in audio. They exude the typical German build quality but are also incredibly musical. The Source II continues to use the uber rare AKM4493 DACs from Japan, matched to a DSD upsampler and MEMS femto clocks with less than 0.2 pico second jitter. A high quality analog resistor network volume control and high quality analogue pre-amp means no digitising of the Moving Magnet phono preamp input and other analog inputs.

How could they make it better? By combining both units in a single chassis. The new MusicBook Combo marries the Source with 125W per channel of amplification, using the same high quality amplifier circuits from the Power II, giving an all-in-one system that sounds great and looks great.
