PDT 3100 HV
CD/SACD Transport

The Reference CD/SACD Transport

The PDT 3100 HV is a purist CD / SACD mechanism wich does not feature supplementary integral digital sources or converters. It has been developed uniquely and exclusively for the uncompromising task of reading SACD and CD, and is fitted with a new decoder / drive mechanism which we have developed from the ground up. This mechanism reads and decodes CD and SACD without error and to the very highest standards of quality. The mechanism is integrated into a heavy drive unit manufactured to rigidly high standards, designed to shield and isolate it completely. The mechanical system is extremely refined.

 

Technology

The core of the PDT 3100 HV is the new, modern decoder / disc mechanism, which we have developed specifically for audio applications. It features the latest processors, lasers, high-performance motors and other components, all designed to provide the optimum conditions for perfect, error-free disc reading characteristics. This unit is fully shielded, and housed in a very substantial aluminium case machined from solid aluminium, designed to prevent any form of interaction between the moving parts of the mechanism and the remainder of the player. This entire disc mechanism block is mounted on just two close-tolerance linear bearings, which in turn are suspended from a thick carrier plate; the latter is fixed to the central case plate at only three points. This design ensures that the whole mechanism is completely isolated from the heavy external housing.

Hifi News 10/2019

T+A PDT/SDV 3100 HV
Towering in every sense, this T+A digital pairing is both a massive engineering achievement and a fabulously refined way to bring together the two worlds of physical media and file-based / streaming music. It´s as future proofed as you might hope for, and while not exactly red in tooth and claw, it transcends mere sonic firework by reproducing the most bombastic musical event with unmistakable style.

Stereoplay 10/2019

Der Perfektion verpflichtet
Monumentales CD-/SACD-Laufwerk, das den Besitzer überdauern dürfte: Die wohl massivste Laufwerksschublade der HiFi-Geschichte kombiniert mit absoluter High End-Elektronik plus Spezial HD-Schnittstelle ergibt schlicht das beste CD-/SACD-Laufwerk der Welt.

Stereo 6/2019

Vorstoß zur Weltspitze
Ein CD/SACD-Laufwerk wie der sprichwörtliche Fels in der Bandung. Der wortwörtliche aus dem Vollen gefertigte Drive besticht mit Präzision und Ruhe, die sich in einem bestechend aufgeräumten, übersichtlichen und dreidimensionalen Klangbild mit extremer Auflösung, aber vollkommen unangestrengter Leichtigkeit und Souveränität äußern. In Verbindung mit dem SDV 3100 HV profitiert die Wiedergabe von der proprietären IPA-Link-Verbindung, die auch SACD-Daten überträgt.
