A fully equipped signal source which sets a new sound benchmark?

Here you are: the Musicbook SOURCE II is a versatile signal source that meets even the highest demands on sound quality. Be it music from streaming services or from a music server, from CDs or LPs, everything’s possible and easy to operate via the app. Friends of high-class headphones will also get their money’s worth: the integrated headphone amplifier defines new standards in this class. The icing on the cake is the excellent phono MM input for turntables!

Connect your Musicbook SOURCE to a suitable power amplifier such as the Musicbook POWER or directly to active loudspeakers, and from now on you’ll be enjoying music in the most beautiful way: rich in detail and yet relaxed, with a wide stage or a small ensemble, dynamically vigorous or soft and emotional.

The Musicbook SOURCE II has been systematically refined – with a focus on the analog preamp. The headphone output now sounds even better and can also drive 16-ohm headphones. Still more effort was put into the ongoing development of the firmware where initial bugfixes and corrections have ultimately become a completely new stack. Among the most important novelties we see the implementation of Spotify Connect and TIDAL Connect. Moreover, there are small and big new features, e.g. the elimination of the lipsync problem when connecting a TV set, network standby, fixed line output with bypassing the analog volume control, dB-linear 80-step volume control, sample rate display for the digital inputs, selection of Spotify via the remote without using the app and much more. With 1-bit re-sampling, the excellent sounding AKM converter modules and the upgraded preamp the new Musicbook SOURCE II again raises the bar soundwise for the best streaming DACs. By the way: despite worldwide supply bottlenecks, we will continue to rely on the probably best sounding converter modules from AKM and the already legendary 1-bit re-sampling process for the SOURCE II!
