ABOVE ALL, BEING ABSOLUTELY TRUE TO THE MUSIC

TAD (Technical Audio Devices Laboratories, Inc.) has many goals, but one above all: to reproduce music with the realism of recorded performance. By reproducing the genuine sound, we remain faithful to the intentions and passions of the artists who create the music. How do we achieve reproduction of the genuine sound? Through an uncompromising pursuit of maximum sound quality, and by taking full advantage of unique concepts and our wide range of advanced technology.


Reference Series

 

SUPERIOR TECHNOLOGIES COME TOGETHER
TO BRING YOU A TRANSCENDENT AUDIO EXPERIENCE

Since its inception, the TAD Reference One has quickly become the established reference point for speaker systems in the new era of high definition audio. This high end speaker system is based on highly advanced technology developed by TAD, creators of studio monitors favored by leading recording and mixing studios around the world. It employs carefully selected materials and parts, and benefits from scrupulous, even relentless, attention to detail, backed by our design theory and testing ability. The result is a sound field of flawless purity that achieves unprecedented professional audio artistry. The TAD Reference One realizes a rich and full sound which has never been heard before.

PURE SOUND THAT KNOWS NO COMPROMISE

TAD is a company that never compromises its design concepts and technologies. Our mission is to achieve a purity of sound to a degree that has never before been experienced. Backed by 30 years of professional audio experience, the D600 SACD/CD player inherits the TAD spirit of continuous evolution and refinement. Its core technology, an Ultra-high Precision Crystal Generator master clock (Master Clock UPCG), provides an ultra-high clock to noise ratio achieving incomparably accurate D/A conversion performance. With this innovative technology, the D600 begins a new era in music reproduction, music unaltered from the original recording and true to the performance.

UNPARALLELED TRANSPARENCY AND MUSICAL FIDELITY

The C600’s pre-amplifier quality results from a fundamental reassessment of all aspects of electrical and mechanical design. It creates reference quality that etches a new name in the history of TAD. From the meticulous L/R symmetrical design, dual mono construction and fully balanced circuitry, it reaches a new peak of performance. Faithful in every respect to our TAD philosophy of the closest approach to the original artistic intent, the C600 Preamp possesses unprecedented reproduction capability. The rich world concealed in each and every musical performance is conveyed with unrivalled accuracy and fidelity, true to the original musical performance.

OUR GOAL: PROVIDING MUSIC IN ITS PUREST FORM

TAD is a company that never compromises its design concepts and technologies. Our mission is to TAD’s philosophy has remained unchanged for over 30 years: deliver sound that conveys the full range of emotions without alteration. This philosophy has driven us to develop technology for reproducing music in its purest form. Over the past three decades our technology has advanced the ultimate limits of quality sound reproduction, to achieve the finest in performance. The result is the 600W/4 ohm total balance M600 Monaural Power Amplifier, transforming the ideal into reality and offering the guaranteed quality and uncompromised design that only TAD can provide.


Evolution series

 

OVERWHELMINGLY MASSIVE SOUND FROM A COMPACT CABINET

TAD has many goals, but one above all: to reproduce music with all the realism of recorded performance. By reproducing the genuine sound, we remain faithful to the intentions and passions of the artists who created the music. How do we achieve reproduction of the genuine sound? Through an uncompromising pursuit of maximum sound quality, and by taking full advantage of our unique concepts and wide range of advanced technology. Making the most of those ideas and technologies, we have perfected the CE1 speaker system. Experience the boundless joy of hearing sound that is absolutely true to the music.

REVEALING THE CONCEALED BEAUTY OF SOUND

The #1 goal of the 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 accurate signal transmission, the 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.

BREATHING NEW LIFE INTO MUSIC

With the M2500mk2 power amplifier, TAD continues its mission of providing audio quality that sounds truly natural. Using Class D circuitry in a completely balanced structure, TAD amplifiers achieve unprecedented levels of performance. By completely separating left and right channels from input to output, along with power supplies and transformers that are separated between both left and right channels and positive and negative rails, complete symmetry is maintained. Utilizing a bridged transformer-less design with two amps in a balanced configuration, the M2500mk2 delivers high output power of 500W/2ch respectively. The analog power supply is equipped with a high capacity toroidal power transformer and electrolytic capacitors. Combined with a Class D output stage, the result is high purity amplification with superior high speed response. For optimum sound, TAD adopted very low on-resistance power MOSFETs with no lead wires. Maintaining low heat generation, thanks to the high efficiency of Class D, the M2500mk2 achieves high power without traditional heat sinks. In order to control vibration that affects the sound, the chassis is machined from a 90kg block of aluminum, effectively eliminating all joints other than connections. This helps stabilize the ground potential and further improving sound purity. It also provides both high stiffness and high internal loss, achieving improved sound quality. A three-point cast-iron insulator dampens any vibration transmitted through from the feet.


Evolution TX series

 

THE ART OF SOUND - THE FUSION OF PHYSICAL BEAUTY AND FULL-RANGE ACOUSTIC ARTISTRY

The E1TX adopts TAD’s micro CST Driver, designed exclusively to deliver a truly natural sound. This 9cm micro driver was originally implemented in the critically acclaimed TAD Micro Evolution One series.

As with all TAD CST drivers, the precision-designed midrange and tweeter are positioned coaxially for optimal directional characteristics with minimal audio interference, each complimenting the other’s respective output and successfully achieving the point sound source concept. 

Lightweight yet highly rigid beryllium is utilized for the tweeter diaphragm, contributing to the CST driver’s ability to deliver superb and stable localization of sound with natural sound field reproduction over its broad frequency band from 420Hz to 60kHz.

BRING THE TRUE BEAUTY OF MUSIC TO LIFE

Our goal is truly pure sound. With unwavering dedication to our basic concepts, our constantly evolving technical innovation is wrapped up in eye-catching new forms like the D1000mk2 CD/SACD Disc Player. Welcome to your gateway to pure, high-resolution sound. The M1000 power amplifier seeks to enhance the overall system aesthetic by adopting a design that matches that of the D1000 disc player and DA1000 D/A convertor.

With revisions to the design of its voltage amplification circuitry and power supply grounding, and the adoption of new components, this amplifier delivers further improvements to the high-speed and innovative sound quality already offered by the Evolution series.
