T+A Music Receiver Announced for UK Market (no jokes about the name)


Distinguished Member
T+A, Germany’s largest specialist audio manufacture, have just announced the launch of its MUSIC RECEIVER into the UK market. Designed to be the ultimate ‘hub’ for all modern and traditional music sources, the MUSIC RECEIVER combines classic analogue technology with the digital circuitry.
At the very heart of the MUSIC RECEIVER is a 32-bit duel-mono digital to analogue converter for any digital music content that is stored on a network, a computer or CD via the front-loading CD mechanism.


To make the most of other sources, five digital inputs (three x coax and two x optical) are supplied, with the coax inputs capable of 24-bit / 192 kHz processing. USB media storage devices and iDevice products (including control and charging) can also be connected directly to the rear via the two x 2.0 USB sockets. Making the most of the digital circuitry, a high-quality RDS FM tuner is also included.

The MUSIC RECEIVER features T+A’s latest Streaming Client board, which allows for either wired or wireless access to network music servers and Internet radio. Compatible with all DNLA-compatible servers (UPnP 1.1, UPnP AV and Microsoft Windows Media Connect Servers), Internet radio can be easily set up using the vTuner internet radio service, which allows users to set up their radio playlists and favourites via the internet.

The MUSIC RECEIVER is not just a digital hub; to make the most of all likely sources it features a high-end analogue pre-amplifier with three sets of analogue inputs (one in the form of a Tape In / Out), a pre-amplifier output for connecting to active speakers or additional power amplifiers, two sub-woofer outputs and one line level output. Other functions include balance and tone controls, loudness, flat function and a sub-sonic filter for easy set up with sub/satellite speaker systems.

T+A have implemented its PWM (Pulse Width Modulation) output stage, which is meant to eliminate any problems caused by voltage fluctuations in the mains power supply, and thereby excludes the possibility of signal distortion induced by the power supply voltage. When linked to T+A’s in-house developed switch mode circuits and the high-power toroidal transformer, the manufacturers claim the MUSIC RECEIVER is capable of nearly 100 Watts nominal output per channel into 8 Ohms.

All the electronics are mounted in solid metal casework. Heavy-duty pressure-cast side panels are precision designed to couple to the aluminium front panel and cover, which wrap around the solid steel chassis isolation from unwanted external vibrations.

The MUSIC RECEIVER is available now in the UK in either silver case with black side panels, black case with silver side panels, total silver or total black. All finishes have a UK SRP of £2,690.00

It seems to be limited to stereo only?
Or possibly 5.1 downsampled/degraded sound quality via the Coax or Toslink?
When will manufacurers realise there is a BIG audiophile surround sound market that does not want their (minimum 24bit/96kHz) surround files chopped down to even 24/48 to pass through SPDIFs?
