MP 2000 R MK II

The Multi Source Player

The MP 2000 R MKII is a genuine multi-talent. At first glance the casual observer may think it is just a classic CD player, but its true capabilities extend far beyond this. At its heart lies one of the world’s latest and most sophisti­cated digital – analogue converters (DAC). This converts PCM signals up to 384 kSps with the help of the quadruple converter – another in-house development – and even DSD files up to DSD 512. The MP 2000 R is therefore able to exploit every digital music format in order to deliver music to the amplifier in the highest possible quality. Our multi-source player houses a first-class CD mechanism; a high-performance digital tuner offering FM, FM-HD and DAB+ reproduction; a high-quality Bluetooth streaming module for receiving music from mobile devices, a streaming client with Internet radio and music services for connection to the home network via LAN and WLAN, USB Master Mode and HD streaming plus a digital connecting board with inputs for external sources (one USB device mode and four HD-S/P-DIF). The wide range of connections allows external equipment to exploit the machine’s superb converter to the full.

Please note: the MP 2000 R is not a computer; it is a first-class audio device incorporating many supplementary functions designed to ensure that all modern digital sources can be reproduced to the highest possible standard of quality. In pursuing this aim our engineers insisted on complete separation between the digital signal processing section and the analogue circuitry, and developed an ultra-modern, high-bandwidth analogue output stage which delivers the signal to the symmetrical (XLR) or asymmetrical (RCA) output sockets by the shortest possible path. If you use the SRC 1 remote control, or the T+A MusicNavigator App, the whole system can be controlled via the MP 2000 R.
The MP 2000 R delivers a stunning experience in sound reproduction, and finally exploits the full potential of high-resolution music.

Converter Technology

Within the MP 2000 R the data from the five digital sources pass through the same digital signal processing route, which offers all the usual ground-breaking T+A features: T+A DSP oversampling with optimised algorithms, and clock generation with jitter elimination and re-synchronisation.

De-Jitter Masterclocking

Jitter is one of the most severe problems, and is generated in the source device – especially in computers – and at the data transfer point between source and converter. For high-quality reproduction all traces of jitter must be removed from the data before the information is converted into analogue signals by the DAC. That is why we have developed a unique two-stage process for clock generation (jitter elimination): in the first stage the received data are processed and decoded. In this stage a basic clock is extracted from the received data stream, which undergoes an initial cleaning process in a PLL circuit aimed at removing coarse jitter generated by the source device and the transfer. This clock is now analysed extremely intensively by the micro-processor. If it fulfils certain minimum criteria in respect of frequency and stability, the D/A converters are switched to an internally generated, extremely precise Master Clock with extremely low phase noise. This clock is completely isolated from the source device, and therefore carries no trace of the jitter interference from the source and the transfer link.
The local Master Clock is generated by two separate quartz oscillators which are adjusted to extremely precise tolerances: one for the clock family 44.1/88.2/176.4/352.8 kHz, and one for 48/96/192/384 kHz. This extreme sophistication ensures that the clock is absolutely precise for all frequencies from 44.1 kHz upwards.

Quadrupel Converter

Once the clock has been generated, the PCM data are converted by the quadruple converter, which itself has undergone further improvement. The converter is based on a high-performance 56-bit signal processor, and offers four switchable oversampling algorithms. Each channel is assigned four of the latest 32-bit converter chips in a quadruple, double symmetrical circuit, which compensates very accurately for any lack of linearity, and reduces the residual noise – which is actually absolutely minimal with the 32-bit converters employed – by about a further 6 dB. The result is a level of dynamism, linearity and freedom from distortion which is virtually matchless – even in critical music passages, and with the most minute of musical details.

T+A Path Seperation Technology

To cater for DSD data which arrive via the PC USB input we have fitted the MP 2000 R MKII with the unique T+A True 1-bit DSD converter – a genuine analogue single-bit converter. Other manufacturers use the DSD mode of a PCM converter, but we eschew that route to ensure that DSD data are processed in a genuine one-bit stream absolutely without coloration and the harmful effects of additional conversion.

T+A DAS

Like our converters, the analogue output stage also takes the form of separate channels (double-mono), and is galvanically isolated from the digital section by means of jitter-free transformers. This arrangement ensures that external source devices cannot possibly deliver interference, and even the hideous computer interference is rendered innocuous. The output stage offers an extremely wide bandwidth of 100 kHz.Clearly this design is extremely sophisticated, but the results are worth the effort: totally natural, uncoloured sound, free of all the limitations usually associated with digital sources. The MP 2000 R constitutes a universal and genuinely audiophile device for digital music sources.

The Absolute Sound 3/2020 Editor´s Choice

Not just a glorified music computer, T+A’s R-Series MP 2000 R MkII is more accurately a hybrid of CD transport and DAC with potent network / streaming-client capability. Thus, it accommodates most of today’s digital sources, from discs to smart devices, USB thumb drives, outboard storage like a NAS, plus Internet radio and music
services such as Tidal. CD and network playback are unerringly superb, with naturalistic timbres and harmonics, midrange bloom, and ripe bass resonance and control.

Hifi Choice 9/2019

Joy to the world

This is a fabulously entertaining system that never feels its message is more important than that of the music it is playing and it is sure to delight anyone in the fortunate position of being able to own it.

All things new

The MK II version of the MP 2000 R is the latest addition to the legendary R series. A picture book universalist and dream device. Technically even more future-proof and with a top-class sound, it is a top-class CD player, streamer and DAC in one - and therefore inexpensive. As is to be expected from Herford, this MP is technically flawless.

constants of modernity

When it comes to electronics, no questions remain unanswered. With the MP 2000 R multiplayer and the PA 2000 R amplifier from T+A, you have an objectively designed duo with a simply fantastic sound that has many functions and is extremely convenient. The turntable G 2000 R complements both perfectly.

Finally calm

The digital all-rounder has the fabulous sound DNA of its (still) bigger brother and is hardly inferior to it. That should really answer all the questions.

Do the components of the R series from T+A have what it takes to be the ideal system? Absolutely! Hot on the heels of their big siblings in terms of sound, the PA 2500 R, MP 2000 R and G 2000 R are easily on par with most expensive high-end components, but spare the owner their usual sensitivities. They just walk. Finally silence for music.

Rapid upswing There is only one upgrade to the T+A MP 2000 R: the uncompromisingly designed MP 3000 HV from T+A, which is more than twice as expensive, reference at i-fidelity.net. Both players are conceptually similar: the streaming client handles all PCM signals from the hard drive up to 192 kilohertz, and it wants to receive even higher-quality PCM or DSD from a Windows PC using an in-house driver.

Either way, if you want to travel the data highway with streaming and internet radio in addition to the well-trodden CD paths, you will find a luxury car in the T+A MP 2000 R. And on top of that, it's rewarded with all conceivable inputs for its benchmark D/A converters.

The T+A team enters the stage with enormous clarity and projects a very spacious and fantastically illuminated stage between the loudspeakers. One does not miss the smallest detail, whereby the functions of the MP 2000 R used as sources seem to outdo each other.
No doubt you too will fall for the charm of this new T+A Class "R".
