Who has Luv for the Lyngdorf 2170 and is thinking about the 3400.

Hello All,
I’m coming up on 40 yrs in this hobby,and or obsession of ours,and I started with a pair of Khorns and Macintosh at the age of 12 and Offcourse owned a ton of different gear over the yrs.
I bought a 2170 a little more than 6 months ago and I enjoyed it so much that I quickly realized I don’t really need anything else,solid state,tubes,or even dac’s anymore.I could step off that silly merry go round of amplification and just enjoy music.I was able to utilize the extra money and time and put together a really great sounding network audio system that rivaled the best in analog that I have ever had,I was mainly a analog guy all of these yrs but finally gave it up,I even sold my longtime record collection of 3k records which included many Hot Stampers that I purchased and also several that I found on my own.

So who Luv’s the 2170 and is maybe also thinking about the new 3400.

Happy Listening,

I am happy to report my 2170 arrived from Denmark a few days ago. The repair service was flawless. They replaced the glass relays for the volume knob and also installed a brand new display. The display was very much readable, however it did change since I bought it. So I asked if they could check it out and they replaced it. Hassle Free. Lyngdorf pulled through big time.

I’m glad to read you have your 2170 back from service,looks like Lyngdorf took great care of you and you received your prized component back in a timely manner.I’ll beat you we’re missing it.

Just a question for 2170 owners.
Does anybody use the balanced analog inputs and if so your thoughts on sq.
Mine just sound wrong.
I have option from my ph10 phono to run xlr or rca out so had both hooked up to the 2170 so instant switching comparison. And yes I did match sensitivity to give same db levels prior to listening.
On xlr it just sounds way to bright, thin and brittle. The rca is vastly better sq to my ears. I also noticed same when I hooked my OPPO up in the same manner but the phono seems to highlight it further.
I do not think is cables as the rca are Nordost red dawn which most people think give a thinner sound!
Xlr cables are Wireworld gold eclipse7.
Just curious.

I’ve only used the rca inputs of the 2170 only briefly so I have no idea about the Xlr.I only use 3 different Digital inputs for my sources.

It might be your wireworld cable,the cables that I’ve used from them before were quite bright and fatiguing.
