Lyngdorf Audio Announces MXA-8400 Powerhouse 8-Channel Amplifier
Lyngdorf Audio has launched its most potent amplifier yet in the new MXA-8400 power amplifier.
Combining the Danish company's PowerPerfect power supply design with Purifi's Eigentakt Class D amplification, the result is a claimed eight channels of 400 watts (into four ohms in two-channel mode). We are also told that it boasts “ultra-low-noise and precise analogue input stages and a sophisticated 4-layer PCB optimised for the best signal purity and grounding”.
The multichannel amplifier is designed to sit nicely with Lyngdorf's MP-40 2.1 and MP-60 2.1 processors, which can decode up to sixteen output channels for Dolby Atmos and DTS-X AV setups.
Purifi's Eigentakt technology features patented error correction - Eigentakt ErrorCorrection (EEC) - for “extremely low” distortion, with the amplifier's sonic goal being to produce “incredibly neutral sound performance, with negligible audible noise” at any frequency and volume.
Lyngdorf also tells us that its latest power supply has been specially designed to cope with the MXA-8400's combined 3.2 kilowatts of output power (and even higher peak power), even when all the channels are driven. The design apparently utilises channel balancing, filtering and several protection systems to overcome what the company believes to be a limit of many multichannel models.
The amplifier's output channels are bridgeable in pairs, with power ratings up to 800 watts per channel for four channels (into eight ohms in bridge mode). It isn't lacking in inputs, either, with the MXA-8400's rear panel accommodating four pairs of XLRs.
The Lyngdorf Audio MXA-8400 power amplifier costs £9,995, with availability commencing in November.
