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! 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 T+A 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 re-synchronisation 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.
This all-purpose device contains the genes of the superlative PA 1000 E and MP 1000 E separate devices. It is equipped with the very latest technologies and components, and certainly ranks as one of the most modern and innovative receivers available anywhere in the world. It combines classic analogue technology for the amplifier section with the latest digital circuit design for the internal sources. It also features a large number of extremely high-quality inputs for external analogue and digital sources, making it the perfect universal nerve center of a really modern, high-quality stereo system. It can cope with almost anything: you can connect a turntable (optional phono modules are available) or improve the sound of your television; connect a set-top box using an optical lead, or even stream music from a PC – there are no limits. What’s more, the R 1000 E caters for all formats, since its high-quality converter processes the audiophile DSD format as well as PCM files to very high standard.
The outstanding feature of this superb device is that we have equipped it with every available modern source: a high-quality CD mechanism, an aptX® Bluetooth module, a high-performance digital tuner, the Digital Connecting Board for external sources and T+A's High Res Streaming Client Board. This simply means that the R 1000 E can access everything which delivers music: CD, FM, FM-HD and DAB+ radio; Internet radio with Airable Internet Radio Service; UPnP network music servers; USB memory media; laptops and PCs, music services and mobile devices with Bluetooth!
