HV

The HV-Series The HV series is the finest and most sophisticated range of equipment ever to be developed and produced by T+A. The initial idea behind the project was to combine scientifically unique design philosophies with the very latest technology and uncompromising manufacturing quality, with the aim of creating Hi-Fi equipment with a single purpose: reproducing music to the highest possible standard of quality. Since its introduction in 2013 the HV series has stood testimony to our claim of building the world’s supreme High-End devices. This catalogue shows the current range, and includes three newly developed machines whose technology and sound qualities provide impressive confirmation of our claim to be leaders in the field, and even expand that claim further. The HV series epitomises the idea which originally lay behind the term ‘High End’: the latest innovative technology combined with uncompromising construction standards, designed to achieve absolute top performance. For the HV series we developed a whole series of unique and superior technological features which are available exclusively from T+A: their basis is an amplifier stage which operates at very high voltage, rendering it faster and more linear than a conventional circuit. We christened this technology High Voltage = HV. Different data formats have individual requirements, and in order to cope with these challenges the HV series employs independent converters for the DSD and PCM formats rather than just a single converter; the two converters have been developed specifically for converting DSD and PCM respectively, and their adoption provides a further distinct improvement in the sound experience. Complete galvanic separation eliminates the risk of digital interference exerting a harmful influence on the analogue components. Our last major contribution to the attainment of sonic perfection is the system’s double-mono design, ensuring total channel separation. Our equipment’s construction is consistently discrete, and this makes

it possible entirely to eschew the use of operational amplifiers (op-amps). This overall process design requires the use of circuit boards and components of particularly high quality, helping us to attain even better performance and measured values than was formerly possible. HV amplifiers unleash more than 500 Watt of power per channel. Our aspiration to perfection is certainly reflected in the innovatory techniques we employ, but it is also mirrored in the mechanical construction of all our cases: the internal frame alone is assembled from 10 mm thick plates machined to perfect flatness; like all the case components these consist of pure aluminium, some of them machined from solid material. No ferro-magnetic components of any kind are employed. All these characteristics combine to make the HV series an exceptional High-End range; it can boast some of the best results from product tests all over the world. Like no other series of equipment it also exemplifies our values: innovative, quality-obsessed and following our own inner path.

Actually we’re scientists … … because T+A stands for Theory and Application in the field of audio technology. That means that we conceive, refine and manufacture Hi-Fi components of the very highest quality, with the aim of developing consummate High-End products for our customers all over the world. Since 1978 our enterprise has been based at Herford in Eastern Westphalia, and this is the focal point of all our thoughts and actions. When considering our products we set ourselves no limits, and spare neither cost nor effort in order to achieve perfection in sound. The results speak for themselves in our products: extremely long product cycles, extended lifespans and a wide range of retro-fit options make a T+A system a sound investment for the future.

P 3000 HV Preamplifier Frequency response 0,5 Hz - 300 kHz S / N ratio 108 / 112 dB Inputs 4 x balanced (XLR) 7 x high level (RCA) Features High End Headphones amplifier Analogue signal processor module Mains connection separate power supplies for analogue and digital sections

The P 3000 HV is the audiophile High-End preamplifier of the series, and represents the universal control centre for a High-End Stereo system consisting of HV separates. It is equipped with unique, newly developed technologies and innovative circuit designs. Its measured results, specification and sound quality represent the limit of what is physically feasible. The components and materials employed are uniformly of top quality, without any hint of compromise, and the workmanship of the case sets standards which are unmatched even by much more expensive equipment. The P 3000 HV’s uncompromising design is of symmetrical doublemono construction. Both balanced and unbalanced sockets are available as outputs. There are four balanced inputs, input No. 4 can be operated in surround (pass-through) mode in order to use the power amplifier for the front channels of a surround decoder. The analogue and digital mains power supplies are completely separate from each other, and even feature separate mains sockets. HV-Link (HV data bus), LAN socket, trigger input, RC-in for E-2000 and an ground terminal are also present. We have developed an analogue signal processor module which not only offers tone and loudness functions operating separately for each channel, but also features three channel separated narrow-band parametric equalizers which are capable of effectively damping room resonances in the range from 20 Hz to 500 Hz. The net result is that superb sound quality can be obtained even in difficult rooms. The P 3000 HV is equipped with a high quality headphone amplifier with dual current capability and is supplied complete with the F 3001 infrared remote control unit. Upon request the P 3000 HV can be fitted with High-End phono preamplifiers, which possess different circuit topologies for MM or MC pick-up systems.

A 3000 HV Power Amplifier The A 3000 HV is the ideal power amplifier and complement to the P 3000 HV preamplifier. It is designed as a stereo power amplifier, but can also be configured to work in mono mode, in which guise it is capable of delivering twice the current and controling big and impeadance critical speakers. Thanks to HV technology, this powerhouse offers superb sound characteristics as well as incredible power and performance: a standard which is unsurpassed even by much more expensive amplifiers. The principle of splitting a High-End system into separate pre-amplifier and power amplifier gave our development team the opportunity to implement the finest possible circuit designs and technologies without having to take into account space considerations and case restrictions. This applies both to the electronic components and the mechanical design of the case, since – if the aim is to attain the best possible sound – a preamplifier’s requirements are fundamentally different from those of an power amplifier: preamplifiers process relatively small signals, and the crucial aspect of their design is the avoidance of induced and other interference; power amplifier, on the other hand, have to cope with relatively large signals, and the stability of the power supply, its current delivery capacity and performance independent of load are much more important.

PS 3000 HV Power Supply Principle supplementary mains unit for A 3000 HV and PA 3100 HV Mains supply 1800 Watts Reservoir capacity 240000 µF

The PS 3000 HV is a supplementary mains unit which was developed specifically for the A 3000 HV power amplifier and the PA 3100 HV integrated amplifier. Both deliver more than 500 Watts of power into 4 Ohms, and at such a high level of sound quality and performance that simply increasing the output power – and with it the voltage – produces no significant improvement in sound. Our research and development work in high-performance amplifiers – including the M10 and S10 – and the development of the HV design philosophy which flowed from this work, have shown clearly and unambiguously that the stability of the voltage and current supplied by a mains unit is of major and even crucial importance to the sound quality of a power amplifier. From this we have drawn the only rational conclusion, and developed a supplementary external power supply. The principle is ingenious, and functions in the following way: if the PS 3000 HV is connected to the A 3000 HV or PA 3100 HV using the special PowerLink with M 23 high-current connectors, the A 3000 HV’s or PA 3100 HV’s internal power supply is used to supply energy to the input stages and the high-voltage amplifier; much lower power is required for this part of the system, and as a direct result the interference generated in the A 3000 HV or PA 3100 HV itself is much lower. The external PS 3000 HV supplies the energy for the output stages, i.e. it is responsible for the high currents required by the power output stages. With a power capacity of 1800 Watts the PS 3000 HV is substantially more powerful than the mains unit of the A 3000 HV or PA 3100 HV itself, and can also call upon twice the reservoir capacity. The net result is a substantial improvement in the current delivery capacity and stability of the system as a whole.

The PA 3100 HV is an audiophile intergrated amplifier and deliberately made from the components of the P 3000 HV and the A 3000 HV. The preamp section has a DC coupling that perfectly combines the excellent sound characteristics of the preamplifiers and power amplifiers. The analogue mains section and voltage power supply is very similar to that of the A 3000 HV. This makes it possible to connect the supplementary PS 3000 HV power supply in order to gain a further increase in stability and performance of the power supply system as a whole. The additional unit provides an extra 1800 Watt of supply power, enabling the system to control even the most difficult loudspeakers without effort, so that they can unfold the best possible sound quality. As an option the PA 3100 HV can also be fitted with High-End phono preamplifier modules which feature different circuit topologies to suit MM or MC systems. It is also possible to install the analogue signal processor module which has been developed for the P 3000 HV to provide channelseparate tone and loudness functions and features three narrow band equalizers to linearize room resonances. A pair of VU meters in the front panel display the power generated per channel in logarithmic form in Watts into 4 Ohms. The all-metal F3001 infrared remote control handset is supplied as standard and controls the complete system via the H-Link bus.

MP 3100 HV Multi Source SACD-Player The MP 3100 HV employs the T+A typical concept of the multi-source player: a large number of digital sources are combined in one device to benefit from the extremely good T+A converters. The integral disc mechanism is a completely new development: an SACD drive featuring the very latest decoder, capable of reading CD and SACD at the very highest standard of quality. This means that the machine has to be capable of processing DSD data as well as PCM data. We use our superior double differential quadruple converter for all the digital processing of PCM data, whereas for DSD data we employ the unique analogue True 1-bit DSD converter, which processes DSD data as a native bitstream instead of converting the data. The overall result is that the machine can reproduce at the highest quality DSD data up to DSD 512, as delivered from the USB input of the digital connecting board. The Streaming Client fitted to the unit is the T+A High-Res Streaming Board, which provides high resolution in addition to various music services, Internet radio, inclusion in home networks via LAN and WLAN, USB Master Mode and HD streaming from network servers. The integral tuner offers FM, FM-HD and DAB+, and offers superb sound quality. Another important facility is a high-quality Bluetooth streaming module which can be used to access music from mobile devices. The MP 3100 HV - or even an entire HV system - can be controlled using the FD 100 radio remote control handset or one of the T+A Apps.

There are three aspects which have a crucial influence on the sound characteristics of high-quality Hi-Fi equipment: their mechanical construction, their analogue technology and their digital signal processing. Only if the development team balances all three facets perfectly can the device as a whole satisfy the most demanding requirements. T+A has been involved in intensive research and development in the field of digital signal processing since the 1990’s, and this work has given rise to many superior and ground-breaking concepts and technologies, including our quadruple converter for PCM signal processing, and - more recently - the unique True 1-bit converter for DSD signals. In the SD 3100 HV and SDV 3100 HV we have now created digital / analogue converters which are even more complex and sophisticated, allowing us to double previous resolution levels: 32-bit / 768 kHz for PCM and DSD 1024 for bitstream data. This improvement required us to carry out meticulous refinement work on the previous converters, and at the same time develop a completely new USB receiver for these high frequencies. Naturally the outstanding qualities of these converters are not reserved for external sources; we very deliberately intended them for the devices’ high-quality integral digital sources: the T+A high-res streaming client, the FM, FM-HD and DAB+ tuner with its superb sound, and the highquality Bluetooth streaming module. For those wishing to play SACD or CD we have developed a separate reference disc mechanism of the highest possible quality: the PDT 3100 HV. This is connected using a newly developed data bus (IPA Link) which offers ultra-high resolution. The SDV 3100 HV incorporates the volume control module of the P 3000 HV and one analogue input, which means that it can be employed as the pre-amplifier in a complete HV system.

SD 3100 HV Reference Streaming DAC The SDV 3100 HV and SD 3100 HV are identical in their mechanical and electronic design with the exception of the pre-amplifier section. The SD 3100 HV is a purist converter / streamer which in an HV system acts as ultra-high quality player and converter for every imaginable digital source. It can be connected to the P 3000 HV pre-amplifier or the PA 3100 HV integrated amplifier via one of its analogue outputs (XLR or RCA). If you wish to play CD or SACD, the PDT 3100 HV reference disc mechanism can be connected to the SD 3100 HV via the high-res IPA Link. By this means the digital data from the disc mechanism are passed to the SD 3100 HV’s converter symmetrically and totally devoid of errors and interference. The SD 3100 HV - and also a full HV system - can be controlled using the F 3100 remote control handset or one of the T+A apps.

The PDT 3100 HV is a purist CD / SACD mechanism with does not feature supplementary integral digital sources or converters. It has been developed uniquely and exclusively for the uncompromising task of reading SACD and CD, and is fitted with a new decoder / drive mechanism which we have developed from the ground up. This mechanism reads and decodes CD and SACD without error and to the very highest standards of quality. The mechanism is integrated into a heavy drive unit manufactured to rigidly high standards, designed to shield and isolate it completely. The mechanical system is extremely refined: all case components are made of solid aluminium, and are produced to ultra-close tolerances using precision machines. The data acquired are fed to external converters in errorfree form via the digital outputs. The PDT 3100 is fitted with all the usual S/P-DIF outputs, such as optical, co-ax, BNC and the professional AES-EBU socket, which allows the connection of conventional PCM converters. However, it also features a further output of significantly higher quality which is unique to T+A: this high-res IPA Link transfers the digital PCM and DSD data from the disc mechanism to the converters of the SD 3100 HV and the SDV 3100 HV symmetrically and totally devoid of errors and interference. It forms the highest-quality connection for digital data in existence. The substantial mass of the case and the isolation of the heavy disc drive unit from the case and the outside world ensure that our design matches the concept of the mass-loaded mechanism featured on top-quality turntables.

The High End loader unit of the PDT 3100 HV is machined from a single block of aluminium, 25 mm thick. All the drive mechanism components are installed in this heavy block, whose substantial mass isolates it from the remainder of the case. The whole block runs on two polished linear guides made from stainless steel, and is gently opened and closed by a spindle drive system.

HV-INDIVIDUAL Virtually any shade between white and black is possible. As distinctive as you yourself. HV-Individual gives you the opportunity to order your preferred system in the precise colour to satisfy your personal taste, in accordance with your individual requirements and ideas. You can order your HV devices painted in any RAL hue and many special paint types, such as car finishing lacquers.

It is up to you to decide the colour to be applied to the case components and the heat-sinks or sheet metal covers. All you have to do is select the most pleasing colour for the printing on the front panel. Simply ask us.

Technology

Cabinets Hand made The tremendous rigidity and stability of the HV series casework is due to a frame consisting of solid aluminium plates, screwed together, to which all the sub-assemblies and exposed external components are attached.

Within the case the metal plates form sealed chambers (compartments) which very effectively de-couple and shield the various sub-assemblies from each other. The aluminium plates are 10 to 15 mm thick, and their surfaces are machined perfectly flat on precision equipment in order to ensure absolute dimensional accuracy. This is how we achieve extremely

accurate fits between the external case parts and socket areas, with close tolerances and ultra-fine joint lines. The case components are manufactured from pure aluminium, either using sophisticated extrusion tools - for the side cheeks and cover panels - or machined from solid blocks for the front panels.

Non-magnetic materials are employed for all components and case parts, because this completely eliminates any chance of magnetically induced signal distortion. Such distortion can result in discoloration and degradation in the sound. All the essential chambers, supports and openings are produced using the latest milling machines, utilising a single process in order to

maintain absolute dimensional accuracy. The ample thickness of the material we use ensures excellent shielding characteristics and very efficient heat dissipation. After the machining process the case components are blasted with glass beads in a refined process before being hard-anodised. Finally a special aluminium lacquer is applied to ensure that all components

exhibit an identical hue. By their very nature the cases of all HV-series devices are extremely heavy, and this is both deliberate and desirable. For example, the PA 3100 HV weighs more than 40 kg, and its considerable mass isolates it completely from all acoustic influences present in the listening room.

The connector section on the back panel provides impressive evidence of the P 3000 HV’s uncompromising design and connectivity facilities. Both balanced (XLR) and unbalanced (RCA) sockets are available as outputs. There are four balanced inputs which alternatively can be configured as unbalanced types, plus two further unbalanced inputs and a recorder input.

Preamplifier P 3000 HV Preamplifiers are the most important components of any High-End system. Source devices connected deliver low-level signals to the preamplifier’s input section, and the unit’s task is to switch and amplify these signals, regulate their volume, process them where necessary and deliver them to the output sockets, ready for the power amplifiers. All this has to be accomplished without altering or falsifying the signals’ content. We have invested a vast amount of effort in designing preamplifiers which meet these requirements in full. The devices are of discrete, fully symmetrical construction,

Input No. 4 can be operated in surround (pass-through) mode in order to use the power amplifier for the front channels of a surround decoder. The analogue and digital mains power supplies are completely separate from each other, and even feature separate mains sockets! HV-Link (HV data bus), LAN socket, trigger input, RC-in for external E-2000 and an ground terminal are also present.

while every single component is the very finest available. The circuitry is housed in cases of uncompromising construction. In the ingenious overall circuit design of the HV (= High Voltage) series - developed in-house by T+A - all the amplifier stages operate at much higher operating voltages than usual: in the preamplifier the figure is up to 100 Volt, in the power amplifier up to 360 Volt. In a similar manner to valve amplifiers, the actual modulation of all the stages can be kept very low. Only a very small percentage (less than 10%) of the characteristic curve of the transistors is used, thereby virtually eliminating the curvature (non-linearity) of that characteristic. Additional measures for improving the linear nature of the voltage

amplifier stages are also employed, such as cross-coupled differential amplifier cascodes or improved “Hawksford” cascodes with double J-FET control transistors. In addition to outstanding linearity, the high operating voltages employed offer the advantage of extremely wide dynamic range. We have developed this unique technology for use in all the HV-series machines, since the tremendous sonic improvements which it makes possible can be exploited in the output stages of source devices as well as in preamplifiers and power amplifiers.

Technology The socket area on the back panel of the A 3000 HV illustrates very effectively the fundamental philosophy behind the HV series: all our machines are based on the double-mono principle, i.e. we separate the left and right channels completely (even at the mechanical level) and always employ identical circuit boards, so that both channels have exactly the same sonic characteristics. The sockets fitted to our devices are extremely robust, and of the very highest quality.

Power Amplifier A 3000 HV Although the circuit topology is crucial to the quality of an power amplifier, another factor is equally important: the mains power supply. The mains power supply of the A 3000 HV is completely unprecedented; without exaggeration it can be described as “rock-hard”, i.e. it never collapses. The basis is a huge, extremely stable and high-performance 1000 Watts toroidal transformer with minimal stray fields. It is also magnetically shielded all round, and hermetically sealed. Twelve oversized electrolytic reservoir capacitors with low inductivity are wired together in parallel. This design ensures that the mains unit is very fast, and can deliver gigantic quantities of current ultra-fast, without time delay.

The enormous power of the output stages calls for particularly rugged, high-quality loudspeaker terminals. They are machined from pure, solid brass, and rhodium-plated overall. Rhodium is the perfect contact material: as conductive as silver, as enduring as platinum, as corrosionproof as gold - and unfortunately as expensive as all three put together.

The right-hand pictures show the underside and the topside. The entire electronic power circuit with output stages and mains power supply is housed in its own shielded compartment in the underside of the machine. The dividing wall between top and bottom sections is 10 mm thick and is also made of aluminium. Voltage amplification and current amplification circuitry is housed on separate circuit boards in separate case sections, in order to prevent mutual interaction. The sophistication of the design does not stop there, as we have even provided galvanic separation between the two. Thanks to this uncompromising design there is absolutely no feedback of the loudspeaker currents into the voltage amplifier stages. The voltage amplifier is an extremely linear, broad-band, cross-coupled differential cascode amplifier, followed by

a single-ended Class A large signal stage which provides superb sound quality. The fully symmetrical current amplifier stage (output stage) is fitted with MOSFET drivers and the latest “thermal tracking” bi-polar output transistors; this combination delivers a very harmonious audiophile sound image combined with tremendous current delivery capacity. The output stage transistors feature integral temperature monitor diodes which we use to maintain the power transistors at an absolutely constant operating point, regardless of temperature, allowing us to control the circuit’s distortion behaviour perfectly. By maintaining full symmetry in the arrangement of all conductors in the output stages and mains power supply we have succeeded in providing a complete lack of magnetic stray fields, and no electromagnetic feedback into the input stages.

The heart of the PS 3000 HV is a 1200 VA transformer which is painstakingly encapsulated and potted in an aluminium ring. The insulating compound material completely saturates the windings and bonds them together, thereby eliminating any risk of mechanical movement in the winding wires! The encapsulated transformer is effectively shielded, and is screwed to the 10 mm thick base plate with bi-directional resonance absorbers as mechanical de-coupling measure. This tremendously sophisticated arrangement is used in all HV-series machines, and effectively prevents any hint of unpleasant transformer hum despite the enormous power levels. To ensure that all the household fuses are not instantly tripped when the system is switched on, all HV devices are equipped with a Soft-Start function: the control processor limits the initial power-on current, and only allows the machines to ramp up gradually!

The PS 3000 HV is controlled completely by the A 3000 HV power amplifier and the PA 3100 HV integrated amplifier via the HLink bus and the PowerLink connection. In a High End Stereo System consisting of one P 3000 HV and two A 3000 HV for each A 3000 HV power amplifier one PS 3000 HV is required if you want to improve the sound quality.

Power Supply PS 3000 HV The PS 3000 HV is a supplementary mains unit which was developed specifically for the A 3000 HV power amplifier and the PA 3100 HV integrated amplifier. Both deliver more than 500 Watts of power per channel into 4 Ohms, and at such a high level of sound quality and performance that simply increasing the output power - and with it the voltage - produces no significant improvement in sound. Our research and development work in high-performance amplifiers including the M10 and S10 - and the development of the HV design philosophy which flowed from this work, have shown clearly and unambiguously that the stability of

the voltage and current supplied by a mains unit is of major and even crucial importance to the sound quality of an power amplifiers. From this we have drawn the only rational conclusion, and developed a supplementary external power supply. The principle is ingenious, and functions in the following way: if the PS 3000 HV is connected using the special PowerLink, the A 3000 HV’s and PA 3100 HV‘s internal power supplies are used to supply energy to the input stages and the high-voltage amplifier; much lower power is required for this part of the system, and as a direct result the interference generated is much lower. The external PS 3000 HV supplies the energy for the output stages, i.e. it is responsible for the high currents required by the power output stages.

With an output of 1200 VA the PS 3000 HV is substantially more powerful than the mains unit of the A 3000 HV and PA 3100 HV itself, and can also call upon twice the reservoir capacity. The net result is a substantial improvement in the current delivery capacity and stability of the system as a whole. The great advantage of this arrangement in terms of sound quality is that the A 3000 HV and PA 3100 HV are effectively isolated from the load currents and mains-induced interference which can have an adverse effect upon sound quality. The large VU meter can be set up to display various items of information such as the power supply voltage or the current delivered.

Technology Our integrated amplifier is based on the components of the P 3000 HV preamplifier and the A 3000 V power amplifier. For this reason the socket area on the back panel also constitutes a combination of both devices. Outputs are available both in balanced (XLR) and asymmetrical (RCA) form. Four balanced inputs are available, which can be configured as asymmetrical sockets if required, together with two further

Integrated Amplifier PA 3100 HV Like all HV machines, the PA 3100 HV is of consistently symmetrical, channel-separate construction. The preamplifier circuit boards with input section, the volume control and the high-voltage amplifier are located in the upper compartment under the case top cover; the symmetrical layout eliminates electromagnetic influences. The compartment consists of thick-walled aluminium plates, and is completely separated and shielded from the power output stages, the current and voltage supplies and the loudspeaker outputs in the bottom compartment. As with the P 3000 HV, the circuit topology is based on a differential

Virtually no overall negative feedback is required due to this circuit arrangement and the quality of the components employed. The high operating voltage of HV technology is the key to excellent linearity combined with extremely wide dynamic range: signals up to 30 Vss can be processed without distortion. The signal switching and adjusting functions are carried out by encapsulated gas-tight gold-contact relays, which are totally immune to contact problems due to corrosion, dust, etc., and do not suffer from ageing effects even after many years of operation. The preamplifier even employs bi-stable relays, which require no permanent coil current, and

this in turn eliminates any adverse inductive effect on the audio signals. The direct integration of the relays into the circuit minimises the signal paths, and connecting cables - as required for conventional volume potentiometers - are no longer necessary. The volume control is assembled from discrete precision resistors and gold-contact relays. The result is totally precise channel matching, devoid of distortion and hiss. The output stages of our integrated amplifiers are the same as in the magnificent power amplifier A 3000 HV. They share the same design principles, circuit topology, transformer and power supply section. Therefore they have the same enormous output power and superb sound quality.

The output stage is of fully symmetrical construction, operates at up to +/- 85 Volts, and can deliver currents of 60 Ampere.

Technology The Multi Source Player MP 3100 HV is equipped with High-End analogue outputs in the form of symmetrical (XLR) and asymmetrical (RCA) sockets, and also features a jitter-free digital output. The LAN, WLAN and USB ports are assigned to the streaming client, while the aerial sockets are intended for the digital tuner, the FD 100 radio remote control and the Bluetooth receiver. The LAN port can be used for software updates and integration in a home automation system.

Multi Source Player MP 3100 HV The sound quality of any digital source is crucially dependent on the quality of the digital signal processing and the overall converter design. In both these areas we offer extremely sophisticated solutions. Depending on the data format, the signals from our players’ digital sources - both external and internal - pass through the same digital signal processing with all our pioneering features, such as T+A DSP oversampling with optimised algorithms, clock generation with jitter elimination and re-synchronisation, true 1-bit conversion for DSD and quadruple conversion for PCM. Jitter is one of the most serious problems affecting digital music.

The digital connecting board includes professional and semi-professional high quality digital inputs for converting external digital sources, such as TVs, set-top boxes or PCs: 1 x AES-EBU, 5 x SP/DIF (2 high quality BNC, 1 standard-Coax, 2 optical TOS-Link) , 1 x USB Device Mode with support for asynchronous data transfer in highest resolution. The voltage power supplies are consistently separate for the digital and analogue mains sections, and even feature their own mains sockets. A complete system can be controlled via the HLink data bus.

It develops in the source device (especially in computers) and during the data transfer process between source and converter. For perfect reproduction any jitter must be removed from the data before they are converted into analogue signals in the DAC. For this reason we have developed a unique two-stage method of clock generation and resyncronisation (jitter elimination): in the first stage the circuit processes and decodes the data it receives. The flow of received data allows a raw clock to be generated, from which coarse jitter caused by the source device and the transfer path is removed in the first cleaning stage by means of a PLL circuit. The resultant clock is now examined in great detail by the micro-processor. If it fulfils certain minimum criteria in terms of frequency and stability, the D/A converters switch to an ultra-precise internally generated master clock

with extremely low phase noise. This clock is completely de-coupled from the source device, thereby eliminating all traces of jitter interference from the source and the transfer path. The local master clock is generated by a pair of separate quartz oscillators adjusted to extremely fine tolerances. This design excludes all traces of interference from external source devices, and even the typically hideous interference from computers is rendered harmless. Like the converter, the analogue section is also of fully channel-separate construction (double mono), and is completely galvanically separated by means of jitter-free i-Coupler devices.

“State of the Art” analogue output stages of fully symmetrical construction operate with HV technology, and are completely galvanically de-coupled from the digital section. One switchable analogue reconstruction filters with 60 kHz/120 kHz limit frequency. “Ultra-wide” 120 Hz setting produces outstanding frequency response and phase constancy with power amplifiers offering the appropriate bandwidth.

Technology

Reference CD/SACD Transport PDT 3100 HV The core of the PDT 3100 HV is the new, modern decoder / disc mechanism, which we have developed specifically for audio applications. It features the latest processors, lasers, high-performance motors and other components, all designed to provide the optimum conditions for perfect, error-free disc reading characteristics. This unit is fully shielded, and housed in a very substantial aluminium case machined from solid aluminium, designed to prevent any form of interaction between the moving parts of the mechanism and the remainder of the player. This entire disc mechanism block

is mounted on just two close-tolerance linear bearings, which in turn are suspended from a thick carrier plate; the latter is fixed to the central case plate at only three points. This design ensures that the whole mechanism is completely isolated from the heavy external housing, which in turn prevents the transmission of external pressure waves, vibration or structural sound from the sub-surface to the electronics and the disc mechanism. A high-torque synchronous motor moves the mechanism block gently and quietly via an isolated, precision-made spindle. The top-loader mechanism allows discs to be inserted with no risk of damage; they are retained by an anti-resonance puck. The data (PCM) acquired from the CD are passed to the optical, co-axial and BNC S/P-DIF outputs, and also the professional AES-EBU socket, which allows the connection of con-

ventional converters or recorders. However, the PDT 3100 HV also features a further output of significantly higher quality which is unique to T+A: this high-res IPA Link transfers PCM and DSD data with bit-precision together with an extremely accurate clock. Data is not transferred in the form of packets; instead the system passes a constant bitstream of unmodified raw data, i.e. even a DSD signal at very high resolution. IPA stands for Isochronous Precision Audiolink. It consists of eight conductors which carry four signals in a symmetrical circuit. This system is capable of transferring data at high speed using the LVDS (Low Voltage Differential Signaling) standard up to the Gigahertz range.

Reference Streaming DAC Preamplifier SDV 3100 HV The new SD 3100 HV and SDV 3100 HV are the finest performing D/A converters we have developed to date, and offer unprecedented performance. They are based on the superb converters used in the MP 3100 HV, the quadruple double-differential converter for PCM and the unique True 1-bit converter for DSD formats. Although the resolution of these converters was already extremely high, we have succeeded in doubling the data rates by adopting a new architecture and even greater sophistication. The PCM converter now achieves up to 32 bits at 768

kHz, while the True 1-bit converter reaches an incredible DSD 1024 (49.2 MHz). These converters process the signals and data which they receive from the external PDT 3100 HV CD-SACD disc drive, the digital inputs or the internal digital sources, once they have passed through the preceding jitter-elimination stages. The DSD data are transferred in native form to the analogue True 1-bit converter, i.e. without any form of processing or modification. The USB-DAC inputs already feature the new UAC-3 standard, and are the key to reproduction of PCM and DSD audio data to the very highest standard of quality. The HDMI inputs process two channel stereo signals. The LAN input has a Switch, allowing it to switch to an NAA (= Network Audio Adapter) so that it can send data directly to our converter, e.g. for

HQ Players. The current / voltage stages - crucial to sound quality - which follow the D/A converter stages are of totally discrete, channel-separate construction, and feature our HV technology, as does the analogue output stage. This ensures that a pre-amplifier or integrated amplifier connected to it are fed the ideal input signal. Audiophile music enthusiasts like to use high-quality headphones, that‘s why we have build in a particularly good, high-performance analogue headphone amplifier. The SDV 3100 HV is fitted with the volume control module of the P 3000 HV and has two analogue inputs, enabling it to be employed as pre-amplifier in a complete HV system.

Like the SDV 3100 HV the back panel of the SD 3100 HV illustrates very effectively the symmetrical, channel-separated double mono design of the cabinet construction and circuit topology. There is no analogue input available. The analogue output stages pass their signals directly

Reference Streaming DAC SD 3100 HV The SDV 3100 HV and SD 3100 HV are identical in their mechanical and electronic design with the exception of the pre-amplifier section. They therefore provide identical sound quality and deliver a superb performance. The SDV 3100 can be incorporated into a complete HV system, and permits the connection of one analogue source, e.g. a turntable. The SD 3100 HV does not include these facilities, as it reflects our intention to produce a purist converter / streamer to operate in a High-End system - ideally in an HV system, of course - as a top-quality player and converter for every imaginable

digital source. It can be connected to the P 3000 HV pre-amplifier or the PA 3100 HV integrated amplifier using one of its analogue outputs (XLR or RCA). If you wish to play CD or SACD, the PDT 3100 HV reference disc mechanism can be connected to the SD 3100 HV via the high-res IPA Link. By this means the digital PCM and DSD data from the disc mechanism are passed to the SD 3100 HV’s converter symmetrically and totally devoid of errors and interference. The SD 3100 HV - and also a full HV system - can be controlled using the F 3100 remote control handset or one of the T+A apps. Like all our HV devices the SD 3100 HV is built of pure aluminium, without any ferro-magnetic materials at all, and features five compartments separated by aluminium dividing walls. These sections house the

motherboard with digital inputs, the D/A converters with analogue output stage, the analogue mains section, the digital mains section and - in the massive front panel - the control section with its bright display and sensor buttons.

Since more and more audiophile music enthusiasts use high-quality headphones, we have developed a particularly good, high-performance analogue headphone amplifier which also exploits HV technology; it works completely in Class A mode, and offers outstanding sound quality. The connection sockets for 6.3 mm jack plugs and high-quality, quadrupole-symmetrical pentaconn plugs are located on the front.
