Lyngdorf Server 1

The Lyngdorf Server 1 is a music and video server had us drooling. Lyngdorf, of course, loves to keep signals digital until the last millimeter, building DACs into their active DSP-driven loudspeakers. The Server 1 sounded great—there was just one problem: It isn't available. Yet.

"We have the software written and the GUI is done, but we're working on lowering the jitter in HDMI and USB—which is not an inconsiderable task," a Lyngdorf rep explained. "We think we can do even better, so we won't bring the server to market until it outperforms everything else we've seen."

And the price?

"We don't know, but less than the Kaleidescape, that's for sure."
