News, last week in fact, of the T+A Series 200 range of compact high-end equipment based on the HA 200 headphone amplifier that was ecstatically reviewed here on HF&MS prior to the first lockdown. What better way to be locked down?
The T+A Series 200 features the ‘Outstanding’ HA 200 the MP 200 multisource streaming player, the DAC 200, which has a preamplifier and the A 200 125W/channel power amplifier (into 8 Ohms).
Oliver John, T+A International Sales Director explains,
Our first headphone pre-amplifier – the HA 200 – is an exclusive and uncompromising device whose D/A converter has inherited the genes of our reference DAC, the SDV 3100 HV, so its great success in the marketplace wasn´t a surprise for us. This triumph confirmed our view that the time was right to develop a new series of highly specialised devices based on the HA 200
The DAC 200 takes its style notes from the HA 200 and Lothar Wiemann, Director of Development, considered it a logical step to build a range around the HA 200,
From the outset the devices of the Series 200 were intended to be specialist products, allowing a mix-and-match eco-system to develop. We have designed all the units in such a way that they fulfil superbly their task as separate devices, but become even better when combined within a system
The DAC 200 has Tidal, Qobuz and Deezer services and is currently undergoing certification for Roon. The DAC 200 also has a 4.4mm Pentaconn output
All the T+A Series 200 devices can be ordered immediately and will be delivered to authorised specialist dealers starting in October 2021.
The 200 series will be distributed by KOG Audio in the UK.
Prices are as follows:
MP 200: EUR 4,390 USD 5,700 £3,990
DAC 200: EUR 5,490 USD 6,900 £4,990
A 200: EUR 3,790 USD 4,900 £3,490
