Lyngdorf designed, and assembles, the MP-60 in Denmark. The MP-60 is an unrepentantly digital immersive processor. It does not have a single analog input! However, there are copious digital inputs: 8x HDMI, 4x optical, 4x SPDIF coax, 1x USB, and a network player come standard, while 16-channel AES/EBU and Dante digital I/O are optional. Does the digital-only front end preclude vinyl? Not necessarily. More on that later…
The undoubted star of the show here is Lyngdorf’s proprietary RoomPerfect room correction and equalization system. RoomPerfect was one of the pioneering digital room correction/equalization systems, and from the outset has garnered praise for natural and organic tonality. RoomPerfect is only available on Lyngdorf, Steinway, and select McIntosh processors.
As expected for a cutting-edge processor, the MP-60 supports all the major immersive audio formats, and importantly for people like me who like their 2-channel music tastefully upmixed Auromatic is included. The video side is leading-edge as well: 4K60, Dolby Vision, eARC, etc.
The Lyngdorf MP-60 is comfortably ensconced in our media cabinet. Come back soon for a full review and measurements of this elite immersive sound processor.
