SDV 3100 HV
Streaming DAC Preamp

The Streaming DAC Preamp

In the SDV 3100 HV we have now created a digital / analogue converter which is even more complex and sophisticated than our previous converters, allowing us to double previous resolution levels: 32-bit / 768 kHz for PCM and DSD 1024 for bitstream data. This improvement required us to carry out meticulous refinement work on the previous converters, and at the same time develop a completely new USB receiver for these high frequencies.
The SDV 3100 HV and SD 3100 HV are identical in their mechanical and electronic construction except for the pre-amplifier section, which is additionally equipped with the SDV 3100 HV.
The SDV 3100 HV – and also a full HV system – can be controlled using the F 3100 remote control handset or one of the T+A apps.


There are three aspects which have a crucial influence on the sound characteristics of high-quality Hi-Fi equipment: their mechanical construction, their analogue technology and their digital signal processing. Only if the development team balances all three facets perfectly can the device as a whole satisfy the most demanding requirements.
This is why all our HV devices are built of pure aluminium, without any ferro-magnetic materials at all, and features five compartments separated and shielded by aluminium dividing walls.
The current / voltage stages – crucial to sound quality – which follow the D/A converter stages are of totally discrete, channel-separate construction, and feature our HV technology, as does the analogue output stage. This ensures that a pre-amplifier or integrated amplifier connected to it are fed the ideal input signal.
Audiophile music enthusiasts like to use high-quality headphones, that‘s why we have build in a particularly good, high-performance analogue headphone amplifier.
The SDV 3100 HV is fitted with the volume control module of the P 3000 HV and has one analogue input, enabling it to be employed as pre-amplifier in a complete HV system.

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
Das in jeder Hinsicht perfekte Anschluss- und Featurewunder SDV 3100 HV repräsentiert die derzeit wohl vielseitigste digitale Quell- und Schaltzentrale sowie einen schon unglaublichen DAC und bietet sich obendrein als Vorverstärker an. Der Klang übertrifft sogar die angesichts des Preises sehr hohen Erwartungen.
Klangurteil: 100 Punkte
