Selling my T+A Music Receiver, currently being used as a preamp even though it's a 94W/CH Class D Integrated amp/receiver. I've got it feeding a British Fidelity P270 Class A amp with wonderful results. The T+A Music Receiver is a very high end piece of kit, well engineered and wonderfully built. It's essentially an audio Swiss Army Knife. Lots of reviews on the net regarding this unit, I have included a few links below and some review excerpts. If you know T+A you know they're high end, very expensive and deliver the goods. I use the T+A Control App (iOS) on my iPhone and love the functionality that provides. The remote also handles all functions. More than happy to audition this unit in my listening room. Thanks for viewing my ad.
The Music Receiver’s small, jam-packed case contains an amplifier, a preamplifier, a CD transport, an FM tuner, a high-resolution DAC, a tape loop, and a Streaming Client board, the last of which allows it to receive digital music files and Internet Radio stations over a wireless local area network (W-LAN). The Music Receiver could very well be the poster boy of integration: its single box provides an astonishing number of features, controls, and connectivity options.
The Music Receiver’s preamplifier stage, including its volume control, is an analog design. According to T+A, this affords higher dynamic range and less distortion than digital preamps. The signal paths for the preamp’s input and output sections are as short as possible.
The T+A has controls for Volume, Balance, Bass, Treble, Stereo/Mono, for low-volume listening, and Loudness. A Flat function cancels any tone adjustments that have been made, and there’s a subsonic filter for use with small speakers, such as satellites. There are three analog inputs: connectors for a tape loop, phono stage, and turntable.
On the digital side, the Music Receiver’s DAC section has one Texas Instruments/Burr-Brown 32-bit Sigma Delta PCM1975 chip per channel. Each chip contains two DACs configured in a "double-mono" symmetrically balanced configuration. These DACs accept resolutions of up to 24-bit/192kHz and provide 8x oversampling. According to T+A, the Music Receiver uses a multistage reclocking system to virtually eliminate jitter. Supported file formats include MP3, FLAC, and WAV, but not AIFF.
The DAC has two types of digital filters. One of these is a standard FIR long filter, which the manual states has a "linear frequency response, very high damping linear phase characteristics and constant group delays." The other is an FIR short filter. Per the manual, this has a slightly less accurate frequency response than the standard filter, but also less digital ringing, as well as excellent timing, dynamics, and imaging. Short FIR filters typically sound better than long ones, though they don’t measure as well: while the short filters have a bit more noise, they offer superior transients. One thing’s for sure: Filter selection is often a matter of personal preference.
Are you an old-school audiophile who doesn’t want your audio piped in over a USB or LAN connection? Don’t worry -- T+A has your back. The Music Receiver plays CDs, and has an FM tuner with presets. The tuner is equipped with a Radio Data System (RDS) decoder that, like the Internet Radio function, displays the radio station name, musical genre, artist, album, and song being played. Further illustrating the Music Receiver’s extraordinary flexibility is its Pre Out, for connecting active speakers or one or more external power amplifiers. It also has two subwoofer outputs, and a headphone mini-jack output powered by a dedicated amplifier.
Good quality speaker terminals, able to take banana plugs, bare wires or spades, sit on the end of amplification able to deliver 94W per channel into 8ohms, or 160Wpc into 4ohms.
