CR-H101B Technologies:

Compact, high-efficiency Class-D amplifier

  • The Class-D TPA3118 amplifier is made by Texas Instruments
  • Enables both the compact size and the power to playback high-resolution audio sources without data loss
  • While compact, TEAC has realized a high 26W+26W output and clear audio quality

High Precision D/A Converter

  • Incorporates a high-performance PCM1795 D/A Burr Brown converter chip made by Texas Instruments
  • This chip has previously been used in the high-end UD-501 and UD-301 systems 
  • Boasts a high S/N ratio and an excellent distortion rate which allows it to faithfully process high-resolution audio sources
  • Data quantities greatly exceed those of CDs, and bring out the wonderful nuances of the music

Up-conversion of USB Streaming, CD, and Bluetooth® sources to Hi-Resolution

  • The built-in up-conversion function can over-sample (2×) signals with sampling frequencies less than 96 kHz
  • This allows you to enjoy USB Streaming, CD, and Bluetooth with higher-quality audio

HR Loudness circuit reproduces heavy low-frequency sounds with power

  • Using DSP processing, the HR loudness circuit provides speaker output that is optimal for the LS-101HR speakers included in this system
  • You can enjoy powerful low frequencies and clear high frequencies even during playback at low and medium volume levels
  • This HR Loudness circuit is not limited just to digital sources, which it can handle with resolutions up to 192kHz/24-bit
  • This DSP processing can be applied to any input source so that its effect can be enjoyed
  • Radio and other external analog input signals are converted to 96kHz/24-bit digital signals once by the high-precision A/D converter and then processed by the HR circuit

USB Interface supports Asynchronous Transfer Mode

  • The USB interface supports 192kHz/24-bit asynchronous transmission
  • This process offers excellent suppression of jitter (time deviation the occurs when transmitting digital signals)
  • Allows interface to transmit enormous amounts of high-resolution audio source data accurately to the DAC   

Dual Clock realizes accurate D/A conversion

  • Separate dedicated crystal oscillators are used for 44.1kHz and 48kHz multiples of the clock
  • Process is crucial to jitter reduction/impact minimization 
  • When playing back high-resolution audio sources, the original sound is reproduced faithfully by suppressing the impact of jitter using this high-precision built in clock

TEAC HR Audio Player is an easy-to-use high-resolution playback application

  • TEAC HR AUDIO PLAYER is a free playback application available for Windows and Mac OS
  • Allows you to enjoy the playback of high-resolution files with ease
  • With support for WAV, FLAC, MP3, AIFF and ALAC formats, it also has an Expand to RAM function
  • Enables high-quality playback without burdening the CPU
  • Enjoy high-resolution sources with even higher audio quality

Solid Aluminum body and Design that stands out

  • Solid body has excellent vibration resistance, minimizing the impact of vibrations on audio quality
  • The top panel has a grille reminiscent of those found on high-end power amplifiers 
  • Uses aluminum casing that is about 3 mm on the top, front, left and right sides
  • With a width of about 182 mm and a height of about 93 mm, the extremely compact body has a full-metal enclosure

Machined Aluminum Knobs

  • Cut aluminum knobs that feature ridges like those found on professional audio equipment
  • Used for the large volume and source selection knobs on the front
  • The cool feel characteristic of metal provides a sense of satisfaction every time the knobs are touched

Subwoofer Pre-out for 2.1ch System

  • Subwoofer pre-out on back panel permits additional bass sound by connecting a powered subwoofer unit
  • Optical digital input allows users to expand 2.1ch home theater system
  • Receiving digital audio signal (Stereo PCM 96kHz or lower) from a TV/STB

Versatile Clock Functions

  • The remote control Clock button can be pressed to show the current time
  • In addition, the timer function can be used to turn the CD player or FM tuner ON/OFF at set times
