In the T+A SDV 3100 HV T+A have now created a digital / analogue converter which is even more complex and sophisticated than our previous converters, allowing us to double previous resolution levels: 32-bit / 768 kHz for PCM and DSD 1024 for bitstream data. This improvement required T+A to carry out meticulous refinement work on the previous converters, and at the same time develop a completely new USB receiver for these high frequencies. The T+A SDV 3100 HV and SD 3100 HV are identical in their mechanical and electronic construction except for the pre-amplifier section, which is additionally equipped with the SDV 3100 HV. The SDV 3100 HV – and also a full HV system – can be controlled using the F 3100 remote control handset or one of the T+A apps.
There are three aspects which have a crucial influence on the sound characteristics of high-quality Hi-Fi equipment: their mechanical construction, their analogue technology and their digital signal processing. Only if the development team balances all three facets perfectly can the device as a whole satisfy the most demanding requirements.
This is why all T+A’s HV devices are built of pure aluminium, without any ferro-magnetic materials at all, and features five compartments separated and shielded by aluminium dividing walls.
The current / voltage stages – crucial to sound quality – which follow the D/A converter stages are of totally discrete, channel-separate construction, and feature T+A HV technology, as does the analogue output stage. This ensures that a pre-amplifier or integrated amplifier connected to it are fed the ideal input signal.
Audiophile music enthusiasts like to use high-quality headphones, that‘s why T+A have build in a particularly good, high-performance analogue headphone amplifier.
The T+A SDV 3100 HV is fitted with the volume control module of the P 3000 HV and has one analogue input, enabling it to be employed as pre-amplifier in a complete HV system.
