The T+A Series 8

T+A has evolved a long series of superior products which have gained the company an outstanding reputation for its converter and amplifier technologies. These were generally used in our players and integrated amplifiers, but with the DAC 8 DSD, MP 8 and AMP 8 we have made use of this expertise in individual modules, enabling us to exploit our exceptional technologies and sound qualities also in compact High-End systems. The B 8 bookshelf monitor fits the components perfectly.

The cases are of all-aluminium construction: the base plate and top cover are machined from solid aluminium plates 6 mm thick, and we make the side and front panels from aluminium profiles which are extruded using special complex tools. All sockets and connections are made from gold-plated pure brass. The shapely and small individual modules convey an impression of elegant understatement from every perspective. But their sound is big and breathtaking.

The DAC 8 DSD is equipped with state-of-the-art technologies and capable of processing even DSD formats at ultra-high resolution using a dedicated T+A True One Bit Converter. Our high-performance AMP 8 power amplifier offers superb sound characteristics and very high power reserves in spite of its small physical size. The new MP 8 Multi Source Player is best described as a digital multi-talent. It incorporates a wide range of digital sources, from CD mechanism via high-res streaming client to Bluetooth module, and processes all of them to the highest standard of audiophile quality. We have developed the perfect loudspeaker for this compact electronic series: The bookshelf monitor B 8. Viewed overall, the Series 8 constitutes a comprehensive High-End system offering extremely high performance, despite being amazingly small and compact.
