Trends Audio TA-10.2 SE Class-T Stereo Amplifier

Trends Audio TA-10.2 SE Amplifier

Trends Audio today unveiled the TA-10.2 SE Class-T Stereo Audio Amplifier. This special edition version is completely redesigned with elegant look and bundled with a special 4A Power adaptor for providing better sound performance. The back panel is same as the latest release of Trends TA-10.2P Power Amplifier with more convenient connection for audio and speaker cables.

“Trends TA-10.2 SE Class-T Stereo Audio Amplifier continues to use Tripathˇs TA2024 IC which is the best IC for Class-D & Class-T amplifiers. With Trends proprietary Class-T techniques in the circuit design and applied ALPS volume pot, Trends TA-10.2 SE Class-T Stereo Audio Amplifier will be the best model of Trends TA-10 Series and brings the audiophile the very best in audio performance.” said Ricky Leung, the Chief Designer Trends Audio. “Additionally, we applied the specially designed audiophile-grade “Trends” MKP capacitors as audio input decoupling capacitor which guarantee the best original audio signal feed into the amplifier and the lowest LSR & highest ripple current Rubycon MCZ series tank capacitors as the power filtering capacitor which best suit the switching PWM characteristic of class T (class-D) amplifier”

For circuit & function design, there are much more thoughtful functions for audiophiles:

  1. Separated amp unit & power supply: It reduces the mutual interference and also let audiophiles freely to match different power supplies as they want. The 12V lead-acid rechargeable battery should be a good alternative (battery provides purer DC than electric network).
  2. Separated analog ground and digital/power ground to reduce interference. The proper decoupling and shielding by the case further reduce interference. The purer sound and silent background achieved.
  3. Added the DC Offset tuning circuit to effectively reduce the DC between the speaker terminals down to 1mV. It further improves the signal noise ratio.
  4. Simply reset the jumper to (Left side of the picture) skip the volume knob and related circuit to change the amplifier as pure power amplifier. You can then add a tube or transistor pre-amplifier before to increase the driving power and to tune the sound.

Trends TA-10.2 SE Class-T Stereo Integrated Amplifier is available immediately and the suggested retail is $225.
