The new TEAC 500 system has really knocked us out with a combination of style, build quality and most importantly, performance. It’s very compact size is simply icing on this very fine cake. The technological capability of the three parts of the system is awe inspiring. All this for less than £700 per box.
A very fine amplifier with built in optical and USB digital to analogue conversion. An excellent, small CD player that will also play native high resolution DSD recordings. A state of the art D/A converter that not only handles PCM data but DSD and DXD (mastering format) too!
With more in common with Esoteric than the old TEAC 500, I think it would be safe to say that this system is a bargain price Esoteric system.
