    New TEAC USB DAC Amplifier AI-501



    TEAC AI501.jpg TEAC_AI-501DA_back_rt.jpg
    High end amp in brushed aluminium few little marks that can hardly be seen .
    Very little used . cost £700 when New , now reduced from £250 to £225. inc remote and instructions .

    A class D amplifier and a 32-bit/192kHz BurrBrown DAC form the beating hearts of the AI-501DA, and it’s capable of streaming high-resolution audio files of up to 24-bit/192kHz via the USB and coaxial inputs.

    There are two optical inputs on the back panel that support up to 24-bit/96kHz files. We found the optical connection to be more stable when used with a MacBook.

    On the analogue side, there are two sets of line level RCA inputs, and a pair of speaker terminals. A 6.3mm headphone port is situated on the front panel.

    The internal circuitry has also been carefully placed to ensure minimal heat and noise, thus negating the need for a cooling fan or heat sink.

    Sure enough, the amp runs cool even after playing for a couple of hours.
    The twin volume meters are the highlight of this stereo amplifier, with the amber backlight making things look even more striking.

    The brushed metal chassis; the details around the input and volume controls; the weighty but smooth feel when using the controls, and the power switch that makes a satisfying ‘clunk’ sound when toggled – every aspect of the AI-501DA’s design feels lovingly crafted.

    It’s a solidly built and sturdy cabinet, and the compact A4 size means it won’t take up much space on your hi-fi kit rack.

    It also wouldn’t look out of place as part of a desktop system – it’s small enough, and either the silver or black finish will look good on any desk.

    The TEAC amp is lovely to use as a whole. The controls are responsive and instinctive, and the supplied remote control is nicely made, too.

    You can dim the meters’ backlight with the remote and easily switch between inputs.

    Price and currency: reduced from £250 to £225
    Delivery: Delivery cost is included
    Payment method: BANK TRANSFER.

    Hi, do you have any pictures of the actual amp please? What colour is it etc and can I see the marks or can you describe them? Also apart form the marks does it come as new with everything it did when new, all accessories, box and packaging etc? Also how old is it, have you owned it from new and did you buy it new / ex-demo etc?

    I am interested in this - have you tested performance / stability via PC to USB input? Reason I ask is that I used to own a teac ud-h01 DAC and it casued regular BSODs / crashes via it's USB interface.

    It looks like it uses the same tenor chipset... I'll take a look online to see if things have improved driver wise since.
