MP 2500 R

The Multi Source SACD Player

The MP 2500 R is our newest and most sophisticated Multi Source Player and PCM / DSD DAC in the R-Series. He has the same overall design philosophy and technical facilities like the smaller MP 2000 R MK II player. Both have been developed to reproduce high-res audio files without any trace of compromise. Instead of a CD mechanism we have equipped the MP 2500 R with the SACD drive from our High-End SACD player MP 3100 HV which is a completely new development.
As in the MP 2000 R MK II, PCM data is converted using our outstanding double differential quadruple converter with all it‘s sophisticated digital signal processing. DSD data are handled by the unique analogue T+A true 1-bit DSD converter from the PDP 3000 HV, which processes the DSD data in native form as a bitstream rather than converting them. This makes it possible to reproduce DSD data up to DSD 512, as delivered by the USB input of the digital connecting board, to the highest level of quality.


It is only natural that the SACD and CD continue to lose significance, as they are increasingly superseded by streamed content; a trend reflected very clearly in the huge success of our multi-source players with their extensive streaming facilities. However, it is clear that our audiophile customers still wish to be able to play music from CD and SACD, because none of us wants to throw away our old collection, and in any case there is an undeniable charm in owning a tangible data medium. Infact the SACD is currently experiencing what we can only term a renaissance all over the world.
Therefore we decided to develop a completely new, modern SACD mechanism incorporating the latest decoder technology, offering very short access times and outstanding error correction. It is capable of reading CD (PCM 44.1 kSps ) and SACD (DSD 64 2.8 MHz) discs at the highest possible quality. We have invested a huge amount of effort in the mechanical design of the drive unit, incorporating a high-quality drive, double laser optics and heavy-duty motors.
With the aim of eliminating all traces of interaction between the moving parts of the disc drive and the remainder of the player our disc mechanism features a mechanical isolation. A heavy aluminium plate and a solid case, which act as a mass damping devices, thereby preventing any structural sound from the mounting surface finding its way to the electronics and the disc mechanism. The disc drawer runs on two accurately machined stainless steel pushrods, while the disc rests in a specially coated, high-quality ABS cradle.

T+A MP 2500 R and PA 2500 R
The T+A gear never lost its composure on anything I played through it. Whether at concert volume or quiet evening listening levels the character and presentation remained absolutely consistent, stable and musically expressive.

MP 2500 R
There is no doubt, this "bridge" player still delivers everything in its considerable arsenal without compromise. Its big, bold but lavishly detailed sound matches the solid, precision engineering of its design and construction. It´s undeniable expensive, but the performance is sublime.

Stereo 7/2018

Out of "R"experience good
CD/SACD player, streamer, DAC and radio of the top class in one device. The heritage of the HV flagships is also very noticeable in terms of sound. The MP sounds extremely precise, fine and dynamically powerful. The multifunctionality puts the price into perspective dramatically! Top!

Audio Video PL 03/2018

Delicious combine

It is an extremely musical, natural, fluid and smooth player, delivering sound rich in information, also at the micro level. It plays cleanly and dynamically, although these are not its dominant features. If you plan to buy a player at this price, be sure to listen to the MP 2500 R.

Brave new world

Hats off, that would be exactly what I wanted. The MP 2500 R is a player for all hip and future formats: updateable in every direction, excellent workmanship and with a drive made for eternity. The Music Navigator, a convenient app that will be available from the end of the year, reflects the remote control on the smartphone or tablet PC and displays the title lists. The only shortcoming that it only plays back DSD via streaming client has already been fixed: soon the T+A will also be able to play back the 1-bit data stream from memory sticks or connected hard drives, which is the icing on the cake of a great construction.

Made in Germany

The MP 2500 R is a source device with excellent sound and reassuring sustainability - regardless of whether you want to insert a CD today, listen to an HD download tomorrow or browse a streaming portal for new and unknown music the day after tomorrow. Even FM, DAB and Internet radio are included. And we haven't even talked about the timeless design or the manufacturing and service quality "Made in Germany". In short: Big recommendation.
