Many views but no thoughts? I would really appreciate some insight.
Since noone has chimed in that has those products which Lyngdorf were you thinking of? Magicos are not considered an easy load. Where you thinking room correction would help with all that glass? I have an Anthem STR integrated with ARC that does a good job nice smooth sound. Its Class A/B should have the power for the Magico. 200 w @ 8ohm , 320 w @ 4 ohm. My speakers are Joseph audio Perspective graphene 2.
The difficult room is exactly why I thought Lyngdorf. Concrete, drywall and glass have to be about as bad as it gets. As for model I think the TDAI-2170 would work, but again I'm not sure. I have read a few have preferred it's sound over the 3400. I guess the biggest thing is I haven't heard any Lyngdorf systems and have no idea how it would mate with Magico. The nearest dealer is about 5 hours away.
I had tried Lyngdorf 2170 with Lansche 4.1 and Vaughn Cabernet speakers.
It worked pretty well with latter but not with the former too bright sounding.
Now I use Line Magnetic 508 SET with former.
But it has lot of presets in addition to room perfect function.
Thus you can apply those presets depending on music and your mood to fine tune the sound.
Room perfect make speaker sound more transparent and deeper soundstage.
It is going to spare lot of space since you do not need Dac, pre, Power ampss.
2170 has no streaming function but you can get Cocktail Audio X30 which can store ripped CD and do streaming.
But you never know until you try 2170 with your Magico A3 in your room
If you are not sure, then one way is to get used one.
Even if you do not like it, you can incur less loss at selling used one.
I also got two year old used one but it had been working fine for another two years.
FWIW I just bought one and am returning to an SET. It's a pretty amazing amp combo but not what I was looking for for my set up.
This is the one I bought and I'll be listing it for $2300 (what I paid) soon, minus the microrendu.
Thanks for the insight. I was originally thinking to get a Luxman integrated but I figured that may not be the best route as the room is so difficult. The Luxman would likely end up being nice sounding equipment in a bad sounding room that still equals bad sound. That's why the Lyngdorf is appealing to me. Although (based upon what I have read) the Lyngdorf may not create superior sound vs the Luxman, however, in this room it might result in superior sound due to the room correction software. Again, based upon what I have read, the Lyngdorf likely has the best room correction software.
