The German company T+A has presented the 200 series, which includes four high-end components. These are the DAC 200 DAC pre-amplifier and the HA 200 headphone amplifier, known since 2020. They were complemented by the MP 200 player and the A 200 power amplifier.
Lothar Wiemann, director of development at T + A, described the new products as an example of proprietary synergy: “They do their job well as standalone devices, but get even better when combined into a system”.
T+A engineers applied their own Modular High-End Architecture (MHA) to the design of the 200 Series components. The DAC 200 works with DSD1024 and PCM 32 bit/768 kHz resolutions. The MP 200 is ready for streaming from Tidal, Deezer, Qobuz and other Roon-based services.
All of this can also be controlled from the T+A MusicNavigator app. The A 200 is ready to deliver 250 watts per channel. If for some reason the HA 200 headphone amplifier is not included in the system, its owner can use the Pentaconn 4.4 mm output on the DAC 200.
In terms of design, the 200 series inherited the look of the M-system components produced by T+A in the distant 90s, although the chrome in the modern cases has been replaced by silver or black aluminum. They are available by pre-order, and will officially hit the market in October.
In the U.S., the T+A MP 200 player costs $5,700, the DAC 200 costs $5,490, the A 200 terminator costs $4,900, and the HA 200 headphone amplifier costs $8,900.
