Product Description

TEAC AI-501 integrated amplifier with 192kHz USB input and on board DAC is a high performance modern hi-fi amplifier with vintage styling cues including two stunning left/right channel VU meters and a beautifully finished fascia, available in black or silver. This amp is a perfect choice for both living room and desktop set-ups and is designed to offer high quality listening from PC, Mac, other digital/analog sources and sounds stunning both with headphones or suitable speakers.

Environmentally Friendly

TEAC wanted an amplifier that could drive full range speakers but not consume as much power as traditional amps, to save you money and be more environmentally friendly. TEAC chose the "ALC0180 Digital Power Amplifier module" from ABLETEC in Norway. This delivers a maximum 90W + 90W output power with a maximum 55W of power consumption, and only 10W in idle mode, or 0.2W in power-saving standby mode. An over-sized toroidal transformer helps deliver high-quality sound without sacrificing energy-efficiency.

USB 192kHz High-Res Audio Playback

Simply connect a USB cable from the TEAC AI-501DA to your Mac or PC and a variety of audio formats can be transferred digitally at upto 24bit/192kHz, allowing you to enjoy your high res music files with exceptional clarity. Simply install the driver software, access your playlist on iTunes or Windows Media Player and play!

High Quality PCM5102 DAC

The AI-501DA employs the highly celebrated BurrBrown PCM5102 DAC. In addition to the USB input, you can connect other digital sources via optical and coaxial digital inputs. Parts were carefully selected for the analog circuits. The unit utilizes high-quality operational-amplifiers and electrolytic capacitors already proven on previous high-end models. You can also plug in other sources via 2 x RCA inputs

High Quality Headphone Output

This amplifier was also designed with headphones listening in mind. Conventional hi-fi systems only use a single operational amplifier for both channels, but in contrast, the AI-501DA features an operational amplifier on each channel, ensuring listening through headphones sounds as impressive as through speakers.

Full-Metal Construction and Small Footprint

This amp is as much of a great choice for in your living room as it is on a desktop set-up, thanks to its small A4-sized footprint. The front panel, both side and top panels are all made of aluminum attached to a robust steel chassis. This eliminates vibrations and allow all internal circuits to always perform under stable conditions.

    A happy customer. Just look at this amp, its a brilliant little model well styled with retro vu metres and high build quality all over, from the controls on the front to the rack mount style "ears" to the connections on the rear, this amp oozes quality and is more powerful than it looks. I've been using this on KEF LS50 speakers and it sounds brilliant!
