Other Notes: “The T+A D10 is the most unusual SACD player available anywhere in the world; it is an absolute High-End machine, from the case to the valve output stage. The results in terms of sound quality are incredible, and at least equal to the vinyl disc. The T+A D10 is based on a number of components found in the SACD 1245 R, including the disc mechanism, the decoder and the digital section of the quadruple D/A converter.
However, the two mains power supply sections of the T+A D10 are much more powerful. For the digital components we employ a secondary switching mains section, with a torroidal transformer which offers excellent stability under load; for the analogue valve output stage we have developed an extremely stable high-voltage mains section which features a reservoir capacity corresponding to more than 100,000 µF with a conventional pre-amplifier.
Quadrupel - D/A - converter
The new converter is unique even by the standards of T+A. The T+A D10 is fitted with no fewer than eight Burr Brown D/A converters - acknowledged as the best of all types. The quadruple converter is a development of the differential converter, reducing uncorrelated converter errors to one quarter, and background noise by 6 dB. The effort invested in this converter layout is immense, but the results are worth it!”
