Danish high-end audio manufacturer Lyngdorf Audio has announced the release of the MP-40 surround sound processor, available from June. The company says that the new pre/pro features “all the sonic qualities and performance” of the flagship model 16-channel MP-60, but is designed for smaller home cinemas, and includes the company’s revolutionary RoomPerfect room coorection software. Like the other processors in the range, the MP-40 is promoted as easy-to-install and user-friendly, and will decode 12 channels of immersive audio while carrying 16 balanced XLR outputs.

“The new MP-40 offers the legacy performance of the renowned and awarded MP-60, but with features and specifications that make it the obvious choice for small home cinemas and entertainment rooms,” said Anker Haldan, Lyngdorf’s CCO. “We’re proud to add this new processor to the family of Lyngdorf components, and I know users will be...

Not much to look at but I guess that wasn't a design goal.

That is funny and not in a good way. When a product approaches this price point how about throwing in a little flash.

I have an MP-60 at home currently and it's a lot more handsome in person that in pics. It has a beautiful textured finish and nice weighted volume control.

Hi @Martin Dew . Can you tell us a bit more about it and your setup? What sort of speaker configuration do you have with it?

Does it allow bi-amping of centre channel?
Can you do an Auro-3D speaker configuration and play Dolby Atmos OK or do you need to pick one speaker configuration over the other?

TIA

Edit: Just saw your title, so perhaps it was on loan/temporary? would love to hear more about it.

I guess it's supposed to be minimalist elegant... a bit like other retro-ish fads me thinks, including what we used to see from B&O.

Interestingly, Anthem has apparently copied this very design style for their recently announced, new line of prepros and AVRs.

Hi aard, I was using my own M&K S150 system and Parasound THX power amps for the MP-40 review with a 7.2.2 setup. I had the MP40 loaned to me by the distributor, then the MP60. Thanks to ManW for linking to my review.

You can only bi-amp the L and R fronts, not the center. I'm not entirely sure about how to set up for Auro-3D, but I believe you need to select the upmixers (Dolby Upmixer or Neural:X) to use every speaker in a prescribed Auro configuration. I'll be seeing the distributor next week if you want me to confirm...

Thanks for this information. Its very helpful, especially regarding the bit about bi-amping. I was hoping that it could bi-amp the centre speaker (to use my left over amplifier channel).
