    Both the German Magazines Stereo and Stereoplay give these babies a perfect 100 out off 100 score in their latest editions (reviews can be found on the T+A website) No doubt with a sound home product bias but still impressive. (Much the same way that British speakers always do well in HIFiNews and Naim feature heavily in HiFiCritic I guess).

    They are both superb.

    Heard the SDV 3100 HV with the T+A 40th Anniversary monos last weekend with the AG Duos.

    Quite an impressive setup, very neutral.

    Re: T+A SDV 3100HV + PDT 3100HV arrive

    T+A showed the new kit at the Warsaw Audio show this weekend, along with the 40 year anniversary amps and Solitaire speakers. Oliver John from T+A presented the in-house development of the DAC's from the eigthies untill today and the upsampling modes of the new DAC. Very interesting.

    I stopped by the room a few times and they mostly played rather bland electronic pop music which did not allow the system to really sing IMO. Others may disagree off course. It is clearly a very competent system and I am sure that with more challenging music it would have presented itself better. I would love to hear this system in a bigger room!

    Anyone here was at the New York Audio show this weekend? It sounds like there was a dealer (Tweak Studio) that had a room with T+A gear on display

    I don’t know... I think it’s a good match with that particular T+A gear, visually, especially those amps. Obviously, seeing it in person is much better than in a picture from Internet.

    I’ll take your word for it.

    LOL! I was just saying. Have not seen the rack and amp stands in person. They look great to me in the picture. Let’s ask @soastrup ?
