Two high-end DACs with streaming abilities (SD 3100 HV & SDV 3100 HV) plus a PDT 3100 HV high-end transport now available
The PDT 3100 HV was developed with the sole purpose of sampling SACD and CD discs, and is equipped with a new decoder/drive mechanism.
The top-loader mechanism features an anti-resonance puck.
Also the output enables the device to interact with the new T+A DACs: the SDV 3100 HV and SD 3100 HV.
The two DACS are identical with the exception of the pre-amplifier section (see images below to compare). They handle PCM up to 32bit/768 kHz and DSD 1024.
The high-res IPA Link is capable of high-speed data transfer up into the Gigahertz range. It is a proprietary connection.
Data is not transferred in the form of packets; instead the system passes a constant bitstream of unmodified raw data.
The solid aluminium components, some of which are machined from a solid billet aids electro-magnetic shielding.
No ferro-magnetic components of any kind are included, in order to eliminate magnetically-induced distortion.
The mechanism of the PDT 3100 HV is housed in a heavy sub-chassis machined from solid metal.
All new HV models are supplied in robust flight cases. Prices are:
SD 3100 HV – £21,990
SDV 3100 HV – £23,400
PDT 3100 HV – £13,996
