Main Features


Supports a variety of sources

Hi-Res Audio Streaming from Windows/Mac, up to 192kHz/24-bit
A USB port on back panel enables Hi-Res Audio streaming – up to 192kHz/24-bit – from a computer, tablet, or smartphone is supported.

Notice about connections
  • Windows computers require a driver software available from TEAC web site.
  • iOS devices (with a Lightning connector) require a Lightning - USB Camera Adapter, and a USB cable.
  • iOS devices (with a 30-pin connector) require an iPad Camera Connection Kit, and a USB cable.
  • Android devices require an OTG cable (a.k.a. USB Host cable) and a USB cable.
Slim Slot-in CD Player supports MP3 and WMA
A slim slot-in drive is employed. Conventional audio CD and MP3/WMA files on CD-R/RW discs are supported, while an Auto Play function let a CD plays back automatically when
High-quality Wireless Audio Streaming via Bluetooth® aptX® Codec
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.
Built-in FM Tuner and Audio Inputs
A built-in PLL Synthesized FM Tuner supports 20 station presets for quick access to your favorite station. An optical and analog audio inputs allow users to connect other audio/visual equipment including TV set.

Technologies for high-quality audio

Compact, high-efficiency Class-D amplifier
The Class-D TPA3118 amplifier made by Texas Instruments enables both the compact size and the power to playback high-resolution audio sources without data loss. While compact, we have realized a high 26W+26W output and clear audio quality.
High-precision D/A converter
We incorporated a high-performance PCM1795 D/A Burr Brown converter chip made by Texas Instruments. This chip has previously been used in our high-end UD-501 and UD-301. Boasting a high S/N ratio and an excellent distortion rate allows it to faithfully process high-resolution audio sources, which have data quantities that 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-Res equivalents
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 supports Asynchronous Transfer Mode
The USB interface supports 192kHz/24-bit asynchronous transmission, which offers excellent suppression of jitter (time deviation the occurs when transmitting digital signals). This allows it 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, which is crucial to jitter reduction. 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 that 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 that enables high-quality playback without burdening the CPU. This allows you to enjoy high-resolution 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 using 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, and the solid body has excellent vibration resistance, minimizing the impact of vibrations on audio quality.
Machined Aluminum Knobs
Cut aluminum knobs that feature ridges like those found on professional audio equipment are 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 they are touched.
Subwoofer Pre-out for 2.1ch System
A subwoofer pre-out on back panel permits additional bass sound by connecting a powered subwoofer unit, as an 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.
