New from TEAC here at the show is the forthcoming Distinction range of mid- and high-end hi-fi components.
The range kicks off with the A1-1000 stereo amp and matching CD-1000 CD/SACD player, both priced at £799.
The amplifier delivers 85W per channel, has six RCA inputs and one RCA preout, as well as a headphone socket. Signal-to-noise ratio is 100dB, and the frequency response is 10Hz-30,000Hz.
Partnering it is the CD-1000 which will play standard CD and Super Audio CD discs, and has a 24-bit/192kHz digital-to-analogue converter (DAC).
Higher up the range comes the mighty A1-3000 amp (above) with an output of 200W per channel, two balanced XLR outputs, five RCA inputs and one preout, plus a headphone socket and two pairs of speaker binding posts. Price is £2000.
It's designed to be used with the £1500 CD-3000 (shown top), available like all the components in black or silver, and capable of playing CD, CD-R/-RW and SACD discs.
All Distinction models will be available in the UK from November.
