MP 3100 HV

The MP 3100 HV by T+A is their latest and most sophisticated multi-media player. The basic design philosophy stems from the MP 3000 HV, but the MP 3100 HV is now capable of carrying out the full signal processing of DSD bitstream data in addition to processing PCM data to impeccable standards.

This extensive development was necessitated by the machine’s new integral disc mechanism: an SACD drive which is a completely new development, featuring the very latest decoder, and capable of reading CD (PCM 44.1 kSps ) and SACD (DSD 64 2.8 MHz) discs at the highest possible quality.

The other digital sources, both integral and external, also benefit from this new improvement. As in the MP 3000 HV, PCM data is converted using an outstanding double-differential quadruple converter for all the digital signal processing. DSD data are handled by the unique analogue true 1-bit DSD converter from the PDP 3000 HV, which processes the DSD data in native form as a bitstream rather than converting them.

All this makes it possible to reproduce DSD data up to DSD 512, as delivered by the USB input of the digital connecting board, to the highest level of quality. The machine’s streaming client takes the form of the new T+A high-res streaming board, which provides maximum resolution as well as the facility to access various music services, Internet radio, inclusion in the home network via LAN and WLAN, USB Master Mode and HD streaming from network servers.

It is only natural that the SACD and CD continue to lose significance, as they are increasingly superseded by streamed content; a trend reflected very clearly in the huge success of multi-source players with their extensive streaming facilities. However, it is clear that audiophile customers still wish to be able to play music from CD and SACD, because none of us wants to throw away our old collection, and in any case there is an undeniable charm in owning a tangible data medium. The SACD is currently experiencing what we can only term a renaissance all over the world, so T+A decided to develop a completely new, modern disc mechanism incorporating the latest decoder technology, offering very fast access times and outstanding error correction.

The sound quality of any digital source is crucially dependent on the quality of the digital signal processing and the overall converter design. In both these areas T+A offer extremely sophisticated solutions. Depending on the data format, the signals from digital sources – both external and internal – pass through the same digital signal processing with pioneering features, such as T+A DSP oversampling with optimised algorithms (for PCM), clock generation with jitter elimination and re-synchronisation, true 1-bit conversion for DSD and quadruple conversion for PCM.

The tuner offers FM, FM-HD and DAB+ capability, and delivers excellent sound. MP 3100 HV also includes a high-quality Bluetooth streaming module for transferring music from mobile devices.

The MP 3100 HV, or even an entire HV system, is controlled using the F 3100 IR remote control handset or the T+A MusicNavigator App.
