TEAC AI501DA with comparison to Peachtree Decco65 and NAD D 3020

Daniel Gardner, Amazon
27 March 2014
  • Summary: This little digital integrated amp is packed with features and excellent design. It is a swiss army knife of modern audio technology, and deserves a serious glance if you are looking for an integrated amp with multiple digital as well as analog inputs. To my knowledge, there is only the NAD D 3020 and the Peachtree Decco65 that are similar in function and under $1,000.

Great sound, great build quality, bad USB drivers

KC Coldbrook, Amazon
6 December 2013
  • Summary: The build quality is gorgeous, a retro look combined with the latest technology. Knobs are nicely weighted. Sound quality is excellent, via the 24/192 asynch USB input. It powers my 88dB sensitivity, nominal 4 ohm speakers at high volumes and chassis temperature is only slightly above ambient. I put it on a Kill-a-Watt power meter and AC power consumption was a ridiculously low 20W at clipping. I would give the Teac 5 stars if not for the USB issues.

No subwoofer

Person, Amazon
4 July 2013
  • Summary: Apologies in advance for reviewing a product I only know from reading its manual and from owning its little brother the A-H01, but it's worth warning potential buyers that it has no subwoofer output, unless Teac forgot to mention it anywhere or include it in the manual pics. I was really surprised by that. Teac, how retro do we need to get here???

Great bang for the Buck

Afridi "afridi", Amazon

  • Summary: Im not very good at describing audio equipment. That having been said, this is a nice little unit. Balanced and single ended outputs. DSD capability and PCM up to 356/24. You have a variety of filters to fine tune the sound. Im using it with a Mac and Audirvana and it seems to work real well in that setup. Plays what you send through it. Good recordings sound great and poorly recorded files sound awful (as they should).

  • Excerpt: Использовал как и многие с kef ls50 и цапом от teac (ud-501), по мне так идеальная hifi система до 100тр, причина продажи послужило, то что комната не позволяла их по нормальному расставить, теперь используется более дорогая ушная система.
  • Pros: Звук. Качество изготовления. Пульт
  • Cons: Цена в РФ, брал все в европе по скидкам.

  • Excerpt: Впечатление от пользования до момента поломки самые положительные. Поломка произошла в условиях обычной эксплуатации. Посмотрим как быстро среагирует сервис, починят и вернут "мою прелесть" обратно.
  • Pros: Качественный звук, великолепный дизайн.
  • Cons: Через 2 недели исчез звук в правом канале. Широкий шаг уровня громкости с пульта.

  • Excerpt: В линейке Reference 501 отсутствует тюнер. Нашел оригинальное решение -- Tecsun S-2000. По дизайну -- полная гармония, вместе создают необыкновенно теплую "ламповую" ауру.
  • Pros: 1.Дизайн. 2.Функционал(ЦАП). 3.Компактность.
  • Cons: Завышена цена.
