Theory and Application

No other audio brand focuses on science and engineering like T+A. The name itself connotes the methodical process by which the company designs and builds its products, holding itself to the most rigorous standards. It devises, creates and fine-tunes Hi-Fi components of the utmost quality, resulting in an array of fully matured High-End speakers and electronics.

The company has existed since 1978 and has always had its headquarters in Herford, Eastern Westphalia. Its underlying motto has been: "No expense or effort is too great in our endeavour to achieve sonic perfection." As expected from a High-End German engineering company, the quality of T+A Products speaks for itself: remarkably long-lasting and with comprehensive support and retro-fitting. Acquiring a T+A system is more than just purchasing an audio system - it's an investment.

Rutherford Audio Inc. proudly represents T+A in North America.

Revolution

The R-series is T+A’s oldest and most important product group. First presented in the year 1992, the system’s technology, operating philosophy and appearance were immediately convincing in every respect, and we were determined to introduce revisions only when genuine improvements were possible.

The new R-series is a completely new development, and for this reason the models bear new type numbers: 2000 R for the low-profile cases, and 2500 R for the taller versions.

The R Series

High Voltage

The HV Series stands for a revolutionary concept applied to a new High End electronic line, created to cater for the demanding audiophile lover of two-channel reproduction of the highest possible quality. Incredibly sophisticated case design using solid aluminium is one of the outstanding features of the HV series

The scale of the development and workmanship on which these machines are based is unprecedented as we mantain a consistently high-end attitude.

Audio Stream DAC 8 DSD

The buzz surrounding the T+A DAC 8 DSD is all about octuple-rate DSD; DSD512 (512 times that of CD)/22.5792 MHz. The idea being you use Signalyst's HQPlayer software to convert all of your music to DSD512 before sending it to the DAC 8 so that the latter's "True One Bit DSD Converter" can work its magic. Yea, magic.

DAC 8 DSD by Stereophile

T+A's DAC 8 DSD, which, for those who want to set up an all-digital system, has about as perfect and complete-on paper-a feature set as I've seen in recen months. And though T+A also offers state-of-the-art metal cathedrals of beaty for those willing to sepnd big...the DAC 8 DSD comes in a compact,attractive, no-nonsense housing at less than a fifth of the SACD/CD.

Fidelity PDP 3000

It is certainly an exaggeration to speak of two camps - still in the discussion about DSD or PCM in the hi-fi world many clear commitments to one or other audio format could be heard. However, rather than to engage in this debate and thus to propose to the one or the other side, the Herford HiFi specialist T + A offers a surprisingly plausible solution: The multi-player PDP 3000 dominated from the successful large HV series namely both , without the usual compromises.

Stereo Magazine R Series Review

T+A has only recently sold out its legendary R-series stock – to now start with a new class. Obviously inspired by the success of the HV-series, and with the certainty that quality finds its buyers, a lot of the knowledge gained with the flagships flowed into the new R-series, which is why it had more in common with the HV siblings than with their predecessors
