Product Information

The TEAC HR-X101 is a CD Micro System designed for the High-Resolution audio era. Complete with Hi-Res Audio Streaming capabilities on Windows and Mac with a powerful 192kHz/24-bitA USB port on the back panel, the HR-X101 is versatile and compact. A slim slot-in drive is used to help realize the compact format, and CD playback including MP3 and WMA files on CD-R/RW discs and automatic playback are fully supported.

High Quality Wireless Audio Streaming via Bluetooth 

  • In addition to the popular SBC codec, aptX® and AAC codecs are supported for high-quality audio
  • Enjoy wireless streaming of high-quality audio playback from compatible smartphones and tablets
  • Bluetooth streaming allows the compact HR-X101 to deliver big sound without the bulk of larger systems 

Built in FM-Tuner and Audio Inputs

  • Built-in PLL Synthesized FM Tuner supports 20 station presets for quick access to your favorite station
  • An optical and conventional analog audio inputs allow users to connect other audio/visual equipment including TV set

HR-X101 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 Hi-Res Audio sources without data loss
  • While compact, we have realized a high 26 watts + 26 watts output and crystal clear audio quality

 High Performance D/A Converter

  • Includes a high-performance BurrBrown PCM1795 D/A converter chip made by Texas Instruments
  • This chip has previously been used in the high-end UD-501 and UD-301
  • Boasting a high S/N ratio and an excellent distortion rate allows it to faithfully process Hi-Res Audio sources
  • These 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 oversample (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 supporting Asynchronous Transfer Mode

  • The USB interface supports 192kHz/24-bit asynchronous transfer mode
  • Transfer creates excellent suppression of jitter (time deviation the occurs when transmitting digital signals)
  • This allows it to transmit enormous amounts of Hi-Res Audio source data accurately to the DAC

On-board Dual Clock realizes accurate D/A conversion

  • Separate dedicated crystal oscillators are used for 44.1kHz and 48kHz multiples of the clock
  • This process is crucial to jitter reduction for the entire sytem 
  • When playing back Hi-Res Audio sources, the original sound is reproduced faithfully by suppressing the impact of jitter
  • Using these high-precision on-board clocks creates the accurate D/A conversion 

TEAC HR Audio Player is an easy-to-use Hi-Res Audio playback application

  • TEAC HR AUDIO PLAYER is a free playback application available for Windows and Mac OS
  • Allows you to enjoy the playback of Hi-Res Audio data 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
  • Allows you to enjoy Hi-Res Audio sources with even higher audio quality

Solid Aluminum Body and design that stands out

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

Machined Aluminum Knobs

  • Cut aluminum knobs feature ridges like those found on professional audio equipment
  • Used for the large volume and source selection knobs on the front
  • The cool feel is characteristic of metal, providing a sense of satisfaction every time they 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 by 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

Incredible Sound Performance

Micro Speakers designed for Hi-Res Audio playback

  • The compact enclosure, which is about 116 mm high and 182 mm wide, contains a 70mm cone woofer and a 20mm balanced dome tweeter
  • These are compact speakers designed for Hi-Res Audio and capable of reproducing high frequencies up to 40 kHz
  • For the enclosure, natural wood panels with a cherry wood look have been applied to a high-density MDF base and given a lustrous piano finish to create a beautiful cabinet
  • Resistant to the effects of changes caused by time and climate, you will be able to enjoy listening to music with these speakers for a long time
  • In order to achieve more faithful playback and not lose the energy of the music, TEAC has thoroughly sealed them to achieve an air-tight seal 
  • An R shape has been used for the bass reflex ports to prevent the occurrence of unwanted air noise

New 20mm PEI Balanced Dome Tweeter

  • A PEI (polyetherimide) balanced dome tweeter that achieves clear high-frequency performance has been adopted
  • It supports the playback of frequencies above 40 kHz, which are responsible for the "air" that is essential in Hi-Res Audio playback
  • This allows the speaker to reproduce Hi-Res Audio sources without losing their fine nuances
  • The diffuser incorporated into the front of the tweeter achieves a wide orientation and allows a natural sound field to be enjoyed even during near field listening

70mm Woofer enriches Low-frequency

  • Paper cone that enables natural playback of medium and low frequencies is used in the woofer
  • In addition, the rubber material used for the edges has been made as flexible as possible and resonant frequencies have been minimized
  • Produces sound that approaches the power of speakers that are a size larger
  • In the woofer unit, a strong 70mm diameter magnet has been employed
  • Its ability to play back low frequencies with the capacity for even high output levels has been enhanced

Gold-plated speaker terminals compatible with banana plugs

  • Screw-type speaker terminals that are compatible with banana plugs have been used to enable secure connections with speaker cables
  • In addition, the terminals have been gold-plated to prevent oxidation
