Combining over 40 years of electroacoustic heritage with modern design, T+A has announced its first ever headphone products, the Solitaire P planar-magnetostatic headphones and Solitaire HA 200 headphone amplifier.

T+A (Theory + Application), the audio manufacturer based in Germany, has announced the launch of its first-ever headphones and headphone amplifier/DAC – Solitaire P and HA 200.

Hand-built in Germany, the corded over-ear planar-magnetostatic headphone design combines minimalist styling and fine materials with T+A’s research and development. Also hand-built in Germany, the HA 200 utilises the company’s flagship HV Series circuits in a Class-A design that operates at a high idle current, enabling it to drive even the most demanding headphones.

Planar-Magnetostatic Design

Like the company’s flagship Solitaire series of loudspeakers, the new Solitaire P has been developed by a team that mixes young engineers with experienced physicists, all who share a deep passion for music. The Solitaire P utilises a sophisticated planar-magnetostatic design philosophy.  With its ultra-lightweight membrane, which covers the whole area of the capsule and is positioned between the planar magnetostatic drive system, each drive unit delivers excellent sonic properties, with the entire surface area of the membrane driven.  All materials used in the manufacture of the Solitaire P’s are of the finest quality, featuring aircraft-grade aluminium and the softest leather.

Headphone Amplifier

Fitted with the proprietary T+A True 1 Bit digital/analogue converter, capable of 32 Bit/768 kHz for PCM and DSD 1024 for Bitstream, the HA 200 headphone amplifier is a newly developed device.  Each of the three headphone outputs can be accurately fine-tuned to match the connected headphones.  Based on the company’s HV analogue technology, which is reserved for its flagship range of high-end audio components, the HA 200 is capable of driving even the most demanding of headphones, thanks to the  power supply that features two separate toroidal power transformers – one for the analogue circuits and the other for the digital circuits.  There is no shortage of inputs either, with the HA 200 featuring 8 inputs, including 2 x analogue and 6 x digital, if the optional HDMI board is utilised.

Price & Availability

The Solitaire P will be available during March 2020 with a UK SRP of £4,800.00, $6,400 and €4,800.

The HA 200 follows in April with the UK SRP of £6,600, $8,900 and €6,600.
