Design Philosophy

The HV-series is the true embodiment of the original meaning of the term ‘high-end’: innovative technologies, uncompromising construction and absolutely peak performance.

For the HV-series T+A developed a whole raft of unique and superior technologies which are available exclusively to T+A: amplifier stages work at very high voltages, and are therefore inherently more linear in character than conventional circuits; the players feature separate high-performance converters for PCM and DSD, digital and analogue signal processing are kept separate from each other, and specific subassemblies are galvanically isolated. All devices are fully channel-separate and designed on the dual-mono principle. They are of entirely discrete construction, without operational amplifiers (op-amps). Amplifier output is more than 500 Watt per channel. The mechanical construction of all cases is extremely sophisticated, based on an internal framework of 10 mm thick machined aluminium plates. 

All case components are manufactured from pure aluminium, some of them machined from a solid billet. 

Absolutely no ferro-magnetic components are used.

The DSD/PCM Player

The PDP 3000 HV is the most sophisticated player in the HV series, and has been developed specifically to reproduce high-resolution audio data without any trace of compromise. For this reason T+A have equipped the machine with a uniquely superior disc mechanism which reads CD and SACD media perfectly, and transfers their data to its superb PCM and DSD converters. To convert PSM data T+A are using their superb Dual Differential Quadruple Converter and for the conversion of DSD data up to DSD 512 T+A have even develop a new technology: the unique T+A True 1-bit DSD Converter, a genuine analogue single bit converter. Since this unique converter concept is ideal for use with external sources, T+A have also designed the PDP 3000 HV to operate as a DAC, featuring seven digital inputs! This technology is unparalleled on the world market and explains the huge number of excellent reviews for the DPD 3000 HV.

Technology

Like all HV devices the PDP 3000 HV incorporates no ferro-magnetic materials; it is constructed entirely of pure aluminium, and contains aluminium dividers which separate five compartments housing the disc mechanism with decoder board and digital inputs, the D/A converter with analogue output stage, the analogue mains power supply, the digital mains power supply and  in the solid front panel  the control section with its ultra-bright screen and sensor buttons.

The core of the PDP 3000 HV is the Dual Differential Quadruple digital /analogue converter for PCM files up to 384 kSps and the T+A True 1-bit DSD Converter for DSD files up to DSD 512 (Quad DSD). 

The signals pass through a  unique jitter reduction stage, which receives the data from the CD / SACD mechanism or any of the seven digital inputs, before being processed by the converters. 

The USB input is equipped with one of the latest USB interfaces, and is capable of reproducing PCM and DSD audio data of the highest quality; DSD data are passed directly to the converter modules. 

The current / voltage transducers which are downstream of the D/A converter are crucial to sound quality, and they are of fully discrete, channel separate construction, and equipped with T+A`s HV technology, as are the analogue output stages.

The PDP 3000 HV’s high-quality SACD mechanism is fully shielded and housed in a machined solid aluminium casework, in order to prevent any trace of interaction between the moving parts of the mechanism and the rest of the player. 

The disc carrier system is mounted on just two close-tolerance pushrods which completely de-couple it from the heavy outer case. This in turn prevents the transmission of external pressure waves, vibration or structural sound from the mounting surface to the electronics and disc mechanism. A high-torque synchronous motor moves the disc carrier system smoothly and quietly by means of a precision made de-coupled spindle. The disc loading mechanism makes it easy to insert discs without damaging them; they are held in place by an anti-resonance puck.

The socket array on the back panel reflects the symmetrical construction and the overall circuit design. The analogue output stages pass their signals directly to the professional standard XLR or RCA output sockets for PCM and DSD operation. Below them, behind the lower compartment, are the digital input sockets, the HV bus, the LAN socket and the separate sockets for the analogue and digital mains power supplies.
