The T+A MP 1000 E Multi Source Player 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. T+A designed the MP 1000 E to continue the proud tradition of their legendary Disc Players, and it therefore ranks as a thoroughbred stereo CD player. For this reason it is vastly superior to any computer solution as far as audiophile requirements are concerned.
The T+A MP 1000 E Multi Source Player 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-synchronization 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.
