  • Summary: Very well built and good sounding little amp. Good match for FOCAL Chorus 706 V2 speakers. IMO only phono input is missing.

Steps in volume control are a bit large when using the remote

Carl, Amazon
5 February 2016
  • Summary: Overall, I'm pleased with the quality of the product, but a downside is that the steps between audio levels can be quite large when using the remote. One notch on the remote can bring the volume from "that's a bit loud" to "I can't tell what they're saying" It can mitigate the problem somewhat if...

Impeccable build quality!

  • Summary: Worth every penny. Super robust build quality. I love it. It feels rock solid and the black isn't some cheap paint. Solid metal here. Same applies to knobs. If you value quality you will love this. It powers my KEF LS50 speakers. All linked together with AudioQuest cables. Sound is sublime.

TEAC AI501DA with comparison to Peachtree Decco65 and NAD D 3020

  • 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.

Great sound, great build quality, bad USB drivers

KC Coldbrook, Amazon

  • 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.

No subwoofer

Person, Amazon

  • 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.

Great bang for the Buck

Amazon Customer, 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.

  • Excerpt: Исполнение усилителя выше всяких похвал, не думал что смогу найти в современный век подобное ретро-исполнение. На него можно просто сидеть и любоваться. Так же его цельно-металлическое исполнение очень радует, никакого пластика! Звук очень хороший, слушаю с Jamo C-607.
  • Pros: Дизайн, высокое качество сборки и звука
  • Cons: Проявилось падение громкости в одном канале
