TAD C2000 Revealing the concealed beauty of sound
The number 1 goal of the TAD-C2000 is to reproduce music faithfully, and superior components make this possible. Using technology developed from the D600 disc player, a custom developed UPCG quartz oscillator provides a precise, stable and ultra-high C/N* clock signal, thoroughly reducing phase noise and enabling sound reproduction with unprecedented purity.
In order to achieve the best sound quality from music files transferred from a PC, TAD developed the Asynchronous USB Transfer Engine. In contrast to the normal synchronous transfer method, the asynchronous method adopted by the TAD-C2000 controls the data transfer on the receiving end using a high quality clock, resulting in a high-precision PCM signal free from clock jitter created in the PC or transfer stages. The ultra-high C/N master clock UPCG equipped D/A converter converts it to precise, high-quality music signals.
To achieve accurate signal transmission, the TAD-C2000 maintains a fully symmetrical design, right down to the circuit topology, the pc board and the wiring. The analog circuitry is fully balanced from input to output. These circuits utilize separate boards for left and right channels with identical wiring lengths for each, achieving identical L/R circuit symmetry with Dual Mono Construction.
The TAD-C2000 is truly a work of art in every aspect, from the textured silver and black aluminum chassis right down to the high-precision ball bearings that give the aluminum control knobs a responsive, yet delicate touch. The LCD screen features TADs usual warm color and offers high visibility. With the TAD-C2000, both form and function work in tandem to provide an experience that is just as pleasing to the eyes as it is to the ears.
Bring the true beauty of music to life. Our goal is a truly pure sound. With unwavering dedication to our basic concepts and constantly evolving technical innovation wrapped up in eye-catching and desirable new case work
To convey all the emotion and passion of the original source, reproduction must be precise and pure. A natural consequence of TAD”s relentless pursuit of this audio philosophy, the Ultra-High C/N Master Clock UPCG is combined with high-quality, parallel connected, dual differential independent D/A converter ICs for both the left and right channels. To reduce residual noise even at high sample-rates, a discrete I/V conversion circuit is utilized. D/A conversion with virtually flawless accuracy is now a reality.
We’ve also included one of our latest developments, the Asynchronous USB Communication Engine. Playback via USB input is capable of handling PCM audio data up to 384kHz /32 bits, and DSD audio data up to 5.6MHz*3. TAD is now equipped to handle all the very best high resolution audio formats to bring you closer than ever to the original musical performance.
