Performance

After three years in the making, the T-Series streamer represents a major step forward in digital replay. With separate enclosures for the Linear Power Supply (LPSU) and Digital Head Unit (DHU), the T Series streamer is capable of astonishing realism and musicality. 

Technology

The T-6700 precision digital streamer consists of a Digital Head Unit (T-6700DHU) and a separate Linear Power Supply (T-6700LPS). This ensures that sensitive digital electronics are mechanically and magnetically isolated from the mains and power supply electronics.

The T-6770LPS employs Quiescent proprietary technology to reduce the noise floor to such levels that you can hear musical warmth and realism that has not, until now, been possible with digital replay. Using high-speed voltage regulation, the T-6700-LPS always ensures that the head unit has plenty of clean and stable power on tap whenever needed.

Specifications

Complete with an onboard DAC, the T-6700 is an out-of-the-box solution. When used with a separate DAC, performance is unprecedented thanks to the EMI/RFI absorption technology deployed around the critical digital power supplies and memory devices.

With an open standard approach, the T-Series streamer supports streaming packages such as Roon, JRiver, Plex, KODI, Audirvana. Internet Radio, TIDAL, and Qobuz are all supported depending on streaming software installed.

The T-6700LPS employs Quiescent proprietary technology to reduce the noise floor to such levels that you can hear musical warmth and realism that has not, until now, been possible with digital replay. Using high-speed voltage regulation, the T-6770LPS always makes sure that the DHU has plenty of clean and stable power delivered separately to control circuits and audio electronics through the two supplied 26-pin and 10-pin cables.

Using open architecture hardware and software that can be operated with any of the current commercial streaming systems such as Roon, Plex, JRiver or Audirvana, freedom of choice in how you want to interact with your streamer and music library is standard.

In our goal to create a digital source that uses non-intrusive error correction, the T-Series streamer uses error detection and re-fetch processes at the network layer, ensuring that the digital stream is bit-accurate. This is achieved by using very powerful and fast memory, and processor technologies that are mechanically and electromagnetically isolated from other system components are used.

Noisy sources such as displays, LEDs and microprocessor controls have been eliminated. Additionally, extensive anti-RFI and vibration technology have been used to reduce the effects of self-generated noise dramatically.

Enclosures are machined using high-grade aluminium to tolerances so good that the separate component pieces fit together seamlessly. Using our advanced 3D modelling process, our engineers focused on the flow of mechanical energy and channelling it to acoustic reservoirs where it is dispersed before radiating back into the electronics. By doing this, vibration-induced microphonic signals are reduced to such levels leading the system to appear “black” with a highly rewarding musical experience.
