Lenbrook Americas distributes a wide range of premium solutions for serious audio and video enthusiasts including the latest digital media players, home theatre components, loudspeakers, headphones and lifestyle systems. Lenbrook Americas brings together several brands in the residential and commercial markets such as NAD Electronics, PSB Speakers, Bluesound, DALI Speakers and more. We are proud to provide full circle audio solutions to support CI professionals with trustworthy systems for any application. Read on to discover three featured solutions, recommended by our industry experts.
Good: POWERNODE EDGE + DALI OBERON 3
The POWERNODE EDGE is one of the most versatile and flexible ‘building block’ units offered by Bluesound, combining streaming sources, control and amplification in one sleek device. Although its 40W x 2 rating may seem deceptively low, this is only because it adheres to the same FDP rating system as sister brand NAD Electronics. The turnkey amplifier and streamer boasts wall-mount and rack-fitting capabilities, with the addition of discreet aesthetic and high functionality. Retrofit the POWERNODE EDGE into an existing speaker system or pair it with high-quality speakers such as the DALI OBERON 3. Crafted with precision engineering and iconic Danish design, the OBERON 3 bookshelf speakers offer balanced sound even off-axis, making it highly flexible as both a stand and shelf-mounted solution that not only delivers exceptional stereo sound when paired with the POWERNODE EDGE, but also doubles as an elegant accent to any interior.
Better: CI 980 + CI 580 V2 + PHANTOM K Series K80/K60LP
The NAD CI 980 power amplifier offers superb sound and robust reliability with 8 channels of clean, low distortion power set up in a 4 stereo zone configuration. Boasting 50 watts per channel, the CI 980 is designed to drive low impedance speakers and long wire runs. Combine the CI 980 with the NAD CI 580 V2 4- zone BluOS rack mount streamer to create a complete hi-res multi-room package of incredible value. Our recommendation is to match this system with the DALI PHANTOM K-60 LP or K-80 in-ceiling speakers. The K-80 is built with wood fibre cones, imperceptibly angled woofers for enhanced dispersion, tiltable tweeters and more, while the K-60 LP (low-profile) features an ultra-shallow design requiring a mounting depth of only 36.5mm, which will fit in installations where regular in-ceiling speakers will not.
Best: NAD T 778 + DALI PHANTOM S in-wall speakers and subwoofers
The T 778 features the latest developments in NAD’s Hybrid Digital technology to create 9 high current/high power channels of amplification with improved efficiency. It integrates Dirac Live Room Correction which optimizes any room to deliver nothing but the most precise acoustics for every listener. Uncover every intricacy of the music thanks to MQA decoding capability and stream through various platform options including AirPlay 2, ROON, Tidal Connect and Spotify Connect. Equipped with two future-ready MDC2 slots, the T 778 is made to last in its compatibility with upcoming digital formats. Support for 4K video pass-through and Dolby Atmos makes the T 778 one of the most sought after A/V receivers in the market, and when tasked with driving a few of DALI’s premium in-wall speakers and subwoofers, the result is nothing short of the most stunning cinematic experience. NAD AVRs are equally good at playing music as for movies, a result of efficient amplifier design and a 50-year brand legacy rooted in developing products with excellent sound quality at excellent value.
