ITOK Media Ltd’s innovative Hi-Fi brand Trends Audio (http://www.TrendsAudio.com) gets its first review from Lucio Cadeddu TNT-audio, the audio expert in T-amp and the no-profit non commercial Internet HiFi review web site. Here’s what industry experts are saying Trends Audio TA-10 Class-T stereo amplifier
First things first: this small amp is a marvel. Period. It certainly exploits all the virtues of the TA2024 chipset making the original T-Amp sound dull, clouded and unrefined in comparison. Yes, take all the good things the T-Amp did and multiply by a factor 10x. Then take all the shortcomings of the original T-Amp (light bass range, for example) and multiply by 0.
“The Trends Audio TA 10.1 does better in other areas too: the mid range is cleaner and more precise. The performance with the piano, for example, is simply excellent, regardless of price. And audiophiles know how difficult can be reproducing an acoustic piano correctly. Here you have tonal accuracy, crisp attacks and natural decays plus a rich harmonic texture that makes you feel like listening to the real thing. The same happens with vocals, which are extremely clear and lively. Original T-Amp, Super T-Amp and T-HiFi Power TI S perform worse in these areas. To get something significantly better you need amps like the NuForce REF9 SE.”
“Overall, the Trends Audio TA 10.1 is an accurately balanced amplifier with an excellent mid range, a realistic bass range and a precise high range. There’s no trace of harshness in its sound but it performs with the precision and transparency you can find only in high-end amplifiers.”
“This amp proves how much quality was hidden inside the Tripath TA 2024 chipset. If you can forget the low power output limitations (6 watts on 8 Ohm, 10 watts on 4 Ohms) it is hard to find something better even at 10 times its price.”
