The core of the E-series is the POWER PLANT, an integrated amplifier which simply exudes power and offers wonderful sound.
In the tradition of our legendary transistor and valve output stages we developed the pre-amplifier for optimum sound quality, neutrality and ultra-wide dynamics. Naturally the unit features a two-stage volume control with ALPS precision potentiometer for a wide overload margin and good signal-to-noise ratios, plus goldcontact relays for the input select switches to guarantee freedom from distortion and noise, and an oversized mains power supply section with a toroidal transformer for low interference and separate buffering of each stage; this ensures that the amplifier has huge energy reserves - just as you would expect from T+A High-End equipment. A Flat switch is provided, so that the sophisticated tone controls and loudness function can be removed completely from the signal path when desired.
The power output stages are new, and represent a further development of the outstanding output stages employed in our TCI High-End active loudspeakers. These are switch-mode power amplifiers (digital output stages) whose output signal is generated by a large number of very short positive and negative pulses. These new switch-mode output stages were developed entirely in-house, in contrast to the off-the-peg integrated ready-made IC amplifiers used by other producers, and are of discrete construction, equipped with the latest ultra-fast MOSFET transistors and high-energy intelligent driver modules.
