The Way The Artists Truly Intended

Enjoy the subtlest nuances of studio-quality sound in higher than CD quality with High-Resolution Audio. Passion for music unites every component from signal to speaker so it feels like the artist is performing right in front of you.

The next gen amp for High-Resolution Audio

This amp is designed to give you the best from your High-Resolution Audio. A field-effect transistor (FET) input buffer delivers enhanced sound quality with low distortion. Hear every detail of the song with simplified final stage circuitry that produces a high power output, and bias that's intuitively controlled by and linked to volume position.

Music, as it was meant to be heard

High-Resolution Audio technology delivers every subtlety and nuance of a song in rich, immersive detail.

How Hi-Res Audio works

Taking digital music to better-than-CD quality

High-Res Audio converts analog sound to digital at a higher rate than CDs, producing sound at 24 bit/192 kHz, compared to CDs at 16 bit/44.1 kHz.

HI-Res Audio

Sound without compromise

To ensure the best sound quality for your High-Resolution Audio, the TA-A1ES has been fitted with an FET input buffer and a discrete circuit for the pre-amp. They produce the sharpness and detail that High-Resolution Audio brings to your music with minimal distortion.

Turn up the volume

Hear High-Resolution Audio, loud and clear

The TA-A1ES has simplified the circuitry of the amplifier's final stage by reducing transistors and eliminating the emitter resister, coil, and capacitor. The result is a high power output with low distortion, so you can turn up the volume with your High-Resolution Audio files without a loss in sound quality.

Intelligent bias control

Expert balance for powerful performance

For long-lasting, high performance, the TA-A1ES intelligently controls the bias by a volume position to heighten the sound quality.

Hear it first.
