TEAC AI-101DA is an integrated amplifier and DAC supporting Bluetooth streaming via aptX for high-quality transmission wirelessly from your smartphone. It delivers stunning audio performances for the next generation.
Allowing connection to a computer and processing high-resolution audio up to 24-bit, the main unit employs a USB Audio Input using an on-board digital to analogue converter by Burr Brown. The asynchronous connection minimises jitter noise generated by the computer, while the up-conversion function refines incoming audio to optimise smoothness, even from CD-based audio tracks.
At the heart of the audio system is a class-D power amplifier that delivers 26 + 26 watts of output from a bible sized cabinet. Activating the HR Loudness, a DSP-based bass enhancement technology, enables the amplifier to deliver a stunning bass enhancement signal for small speakers. The HR Loudness is effective for analogue line-in signal as well. A set of biding-post speaker terminals have been used for secure wiring.
5 Audio Inputs
Designed for audio streaming from a computer or smartphone, the main unit carries a USB audio input and Bluetooth connection. It also carries a pair of optical audio inputs and conventional analogue audio input in 1/8” jack. Made of aluminium, the body of the Teac AI-101DA enables convertible layout horizontally or vertically, while the TEAC’s iconic side guard bars give a professional finish. As demands for high-quality headphone listening have increased, TEAC included headphone output in the main unit allowing it to drive a wider range of headphones including high impedance models.
Auto Power Saving
The amplifier provides a simple smart power-on/off sequence when you watch TV. Thanks to Auto Power Saving function, it automatically turns on when incoming digital audio signal is detected and off when the signal is inactive for 3 minutes. You can connect a TV, PC, Satellite Receiver and STB such as Apple TV and Sonos Connect to equip optical digital audio output to enjoy simplified operations.
Free Audio Software
TEAC supplies high-resolution audio playback software for Windows and Macintosh. The software is available to download free from the TEAC website, and allows users to enjoy high-resolution audio without the complicated settings of third-party applications.
6 Jun 2015Great value amplifier and DAC in a single unit and a really nice size that makes it possible to use on my desktop next to my Apple iMac. Headphones output is a bonus but I'm sure this sounds just as good as TEACs other headphone amplifier. Quick delivery from the dealer too so a solid five stars all round
