You were the 1st person that quoted me. Sorry that I didn't see any other posts.
I'm not sure how much it will cost $$ wise via Au. I depends on who the importer is. For Lyngdorf USA, I order from a direct employee who lives in the States. Then they ship it directly from Denmark. A few days later, it is in my hands. Personally, I prefer that approach as it keeps the pricing in line.
My Danish contact (Claus) who lives in LA JUST got his demo. It's a preproduction model. He formerly owned a Datasat prepro a while back that he loved and is giving engineering feedback for final software. Per my conversations with him 2 days ago, he said that shipments are predicted to be "mid to late April". Because I know the TDAI so well for my STEREO listening, I jumped in with both feet and placed an early order for 4.
Like the Steinway Lyngdorf processor which is 2X the money, the MP-50 will have voicing tools. Roger, you will like this. It has the algorithm called PLIIx. Have you ever heard of that?
As I said earlier, the big big benefit S-L piece is there is no "preamp" as the digital out controlled the rail voltages of the amp. With the MP-50, they have an analog out via a volume control. So by definition, it will be "lossy-er".
Because I am not good at waiting, I asked Claus if I can borrow his demo in LA. Answer; yes! So my plan is to drive to LA from PHX and do a couple GTG's. AVS members are welcome to attend and I am working on a couple of immersive sound customers homes where we can swap and compare various prepro's. The only rule is those who attend must post their honest feedback accordingly. My hope is to get out to LA late Feb or early March. Interestingly enough, I will be tuning a stereo system in Boston mid month using the TDAI. So if
me let's me borrow his prepro for a few days, I'll stuff it in my carry on and do another round of comparisons in Boston. RichB, are you up for it?
