Lyngdorf Audio has announced the latest addition to the company’s amplifier range, the 8-channel power amplifier Lyngdorf MXA-8400. The MXA-8400 is based on Purifi Audio’s EIGENTAKT Class D amplifier technology in addition to adding a brand new Lyngdorf PowerPerfect power supply design. Purifi Audio is a Danish company who’s technology can also be found in NAD amplifiers.
The MXA-8400 complements the company’s high-performance multichannel MP-40 2.1 and MP-60 2.1, processors which decode up to sixteen output channels for immersive Dolby Atmos and DTS-X home cinemas. The MP-40 and MP-60 were recently updated with the latest HDMI 2.1 and Tidal Connect including Dolby Atmos Music.
The MXA-8400 however, is the most powerful product ever manufactured by Lyngdorf Audio and delivers 8 x 400 watts (into four ohms in two-channel mode) of ultra-linear and stable power, by using Purifi EIGENTAKT ErrorCorrection (EEC), that produces extremely low Total Harmonic Distortion (THD) at any frequency, and at any power level, as well as ultra-low Inter Modulation Distortion (IMD), leading to a highly stable stereo image.
“The MXA-8400 is uniquely able to offer an exceptional solution to both the installer or home cinema enthusiast who needs reliable, powerful multichannel amplification, and at the same time a top-performing HiFi product to be used in pure audio setups” stated Thomas Birkelund, Lyngdorf Audio CEO and CTO. “With the very efficient power supply and a state-of-the-art amplifier stage” added Birkelund, “the MXA-8400 encapsulates what Steinway and Lyngdorf products stand for – high performance and extraordinary experiences!”
The 8 output channels are bridgeable in pairs, delivering up to 4 X 800 watts to drive even the most demanding loudspeakers effortlessly. The result is an incredibly neutral sound performance, with negligible audible noise and virtually no sonic fingerprint. 8 amplifier channels with a combined 3.2 kilowatts of output power and even higher peak power represent extremely high challenges for the power supply, which is often a limiting factor with common multichannel amplifiers. The MXA-8400 solves this by incorporating “PowerPerfect by Lyngdorf Audio,” a new, highly efficient, power supply with Channel Balancing Technology, integrated filtering, and several protection systems.
Brantford, Ontario-based The Watershed Group exclusively represent Lyngdorf and expect the MXA-8400 to start shipping in November. MAP Priced $11,320 CDN
