T+A Announces First Headphones and Headphone Amplifier

T+A (Theory + Application), the Westphalian high-end audio manufacturer, has announced the launch of its first-ever headphones and headphone amplifier/DAC – Solitaire P and HA 200, respectively.

The Solitaire P over-ear planar-magnetostatic headphones combine minimalist styling and the finest materials with class-leading research and development, according to the German company.

The headphones have been developed by a team of young engineers and experienced physicists, all who share a deep passion for music, apparently.

The Solitaire P utilises a sophisticated planar-magnetostatic design philosophy that features an ultra-lightweight membrane, which covers the whole area of the capsule and is positioned between the planar magnetostatic drive system. The entire surface area of the membrane is driven to deliver a spacious, airy feel that is unique even for planar headphones, says T+A. Additionally, as you would expect from the brand, high-quality materials have been used in the German-built cans, such as aircraft-grade aluminium and soft leather.

The first T+A headphone amplifier, the HA 200, is fitted with the proprietary True 1 Bit digital/analogue converter, capable of 32 Bit/768 kHz for PCM and DSD 1024 for Bitstream. Sporting a trio of headphone outputs that each can be accurately fine-tuned to match the connected headphones, the HA 200 is based on the company's flagship HV analogue technology. Thanks to the high-quality power supply that features two separate toroidal power transformers – one for the analogue circuits and the other for the digital - even the most demanding of headphones is catered for.

There's an abundance of inputs, too including 2 x analogue and 6 x digital, if the optional HDMI board is utilised.

Price and availability

The Solitaire P is available now for NZD $9,999 RRP, while the HA 200 sells for NZD $14,999 RRP. Australian pricing and availability have not yet been confirmed.
