MP 1000 E
Multi Source Player

The Multi Source Player

This is a unique device reflecting an ingenious design philosophy, as it combines the classic music source of CD with the ability to play digital music formats from a vast range of sources! Please note: the MP 1000 E is NOT a computer; it is a first-class audiophile CD player incorporating supplementary functions designed to enable other internal and external digital sources to exploit its outstanding converter. With this aim in mind we developed a mainboard which can process five different digital sources at superb quality and devoid of jitter; a new Streaming Client (SCL), which is a network-enabled processor board featuring WLAN, LAN and USB interfaces; a high-quality digital tuner; a High-End CD mechanism and a Digital Connecting Board fitted with five high-quality digital SP/DIF inputs, a computer USB input and an aptX® Bluetooth module.
These features permit the MP 1000 E to access everything which delivers music: Internet radio with Airable Internet Radio Service; UPnP network music servers and USB memory media; FM, FM-HD and DAB+ radio; CDs and music from computers, laptops or other external sources via the SP/DIF inputs. HD Bluetooth streaming from mobile devices is also possible at superb quality.

The USB Device Mode input is intended for streaming music files from a computer, and we deliberately designed it to be of exceptionally high quality. It can process data rates up to 32-bit / 384 kHz for PCM and DSD 256 (12 MHz).
The heart of the MP 1000 E is its double-mono differential converter (DAC) combined with audiophile high-bandwidth analogue output stages. It even possesses a sophisticated clock resynchronisation circuit to eliminate jitter and all forms of external interference. It is this combination which is responsible for the MP 1000 E’s incredibly natural, lively “analogue sound”, which is refreshingly different from many other digital players.
As an option the MP 1000 E can be fitted with the VVM pre-amplifier module to provide volume control; this may be necessary, for example, if you wish to use active loudspeakers with the machine.

We designed the MP 1000 E to continue the proud tradition of our legendary Disc Players, and it therefore ranks as a thoroughbred stereo CD player. For this reason it is vastly superior to any computer solution as far as audiophile requirements are concerned.
The digital signals from the CD mechanism, the Streaming Client Board, the digital tuner, and the Digital Connecting Board with SP/DIF and USB inputs are converted into analogue signals in a fully symmetrical process by the highly sophisticated double-mono differential converter (DAC), which produces very high standards of quality. It is the core of the MP 1000 E, and even features a sophisticated clock resynchronisation circuit to eliminate jitter and all forms of external interference.


The unit employs the latest 32-bit converters from Burr Brown (TI). These features make the MP 1000 E a High-End audio DAC for external sources as well as a High-End player for the integral sources! There are even two modes for the filter characteristics, allowing the user to fine-tune the converter to suit particular characteristics of the selected source. Downstream from the digital signal conversion a high-quality audiophile analogue output stage with high bandwidth (100 kHz) is responsible for further signal processing. This section is perfectly matched to the balanced and unbalanced outputs, and makes an important contribution to the machine’s superb overall sound quality.
The five High-RES digital inputs (coax at 192 kHz and optical at 96 kHz) can be used to enable external sources to be converted by the integral DAC to high quality levels; in this way other devices can exploit the extraordinary sound qualities of the MP 1000 E. The extremely high-class USB / DAC input is designed for streaming DSD or PCM music files from a PC at very high definition; up to PCM 384 or DSD 256 is possible. The machine also features input sockets for USB devices, LAN and a WLAN USB aerial.
The MP 1000 E is supplied complete with the SRC 1 system remote control handset, which can also be employed to control the PA 1000 E. All that is required to complete the “E-2 Link” data bus connection.

Chociaż na nikim, kto zna ofertę T+A, koncepcja wieloformatowego źródła nie robi większego wrażenia, to na tle całego rynku wciąż są to urządzenia oryginalne i niemające większej konkurencji. MP1000E jest najnowszym źródłem w serii E, co wobec zmieniających się standardów cyfrowych ma dużą wagę. Niezależnie od tego, nowe urządzenia T+A mają jeszcze solidniejsze obudowy, z dodanymi grubymi panelami bocznymi.

The T+A combination of MP 1000 E and PA 1000 E is without doubt impressive, but the MP 1000 E player is the more striking of the two units. Whether playing CDs, network music sources or direct from USB storage, it has impressive levels of insight and detail, and very fine extension, pace and drive. That it looks and feels so good, and is a pleasure to use especially with the well-designed TA Control app - simply adds to the player appeal. T+A´s new MP 1000 E is very much the modern music centre.

Überragender CD-Player, erstklassiger Streamer, toller DAC, prima Tuner, aufrüstbar zum Vorverstärker

Eine variablere Quelle auf diesem Niveau ist mir noch nicht untergekommen. Der Multi-Source-Player MP 1000 E ist ein Tausendsassa, der PA 1000 E "nur" ein Vollverstärker, aber ein verdammt guter. Im Team sind die beiden Komponenten der E-Serie in Klang und Ausstattung für dieses Geld nicht zu schlagen...Hut ab!
