T+A MP 3100 HV all-in-one audio player launched
High-end German audio manufacturer T+A – it stands for Theory and Application - has announced its new multi-media player, the MP 3100 HV.
Inspired by the renaissance in SACD and the popularity of hi-res audio formats, the MP 3100 HV, features a completely new, modern disc mechanism incorporating the latest decoder technology, whilst offering fast access times and what they say is 'outstanding error correction'.
Also included is T+A’s high-res streaming board, which provides ‘maximum resolution’ as well as the facility to access various music services (Tidal, Quboz and Deezer), Internet radio, home network via LAN and WLAN, USB Master Mode and HD streaming from network servers. The tuner offers FM, FM-HD and DAB+ capability, whilst a Bluetooth streaming module enables wireless playback from mobile devices.
Thanks to its digital processing capability, the MP 3100 HV can carry out the full signal processing of DSD bitstream and PCM data to what are described as ‘impeccable’ standards. The sound quality of any digital source is dependent on the quality of the digital signal processing and the overall converter design. In both these areas, this Multi Source SACD-Player offers extremely unique solutions based on T+A key technologies, designed in-house.
Depending on the incoming data format, the signals from the player's digital sources – both external and internal – pass through one of two completely separate signal paths, each optimised exclusively for that signal type (DSD or PCM). After the two separate converters, the following analogue section is constructed on the T+A fully symmetrical double mono principle, which characterises the HV-Series.
The inclusion of the MP 3100 HV in the home network via LAN and WLAN, makes USB Master Mode and HD streaming from network servers also possible. The Player, or even an entire HV system, is controlled using the FD 100 radio remote control handset or the T+A Control App.
The MP 3100 HV will be available in the UK from the middle of April 2017 with an SRP of £12,690.
