Technical Audio Devices Announces Two New Products to Its High-End Speaker and Component Lines

TAD’s U.S. Debut of the TAD-E1 and TAD-C600

Technical Audio Devices Laboratories, Inc. (TAD) today introduced two new products at the Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas, marking the highly anticipated completion of TAD’s Evolution and Reference series systems. The TAD-E1 loudspeaker and TAD-C600 preamplifier are the final components in the two audio collections, thus allowing TAD to take audiophiles on a complete journey from source to sound.

Developed and designed entirely in-house by Director of Engineering Andrew Jones and an international team of audio engineers, artists and craftsmen, the TAD-E1 and TAD-C600 are the next steps in the brand’s unprecedented commitment to developing and manufacturing products of the highest quality sound technology.

“TAD’s philosophy has always encompassed the belief that audiences should be able to access the richest and purest sound experience possible in their own home environment,” said Andrew Jones, director, chief engineer for TAD Laboratories “The completion of our Evolution and Reference series is an anticipated milestone that provides us the opportunity to take the most discerning of audiophiles on a true sensory experience from source to sound.”

As the first-ever loudspeaker in this category, the TAD-E1 is the next step in TAD’s high-performance “function meets form” Evolution Series, consisting of the C2000 Preamplifier and the M2500 and M4300 Power Amplifiers. The Evolution series provides precise audio quality that sounds completely natural and achieves unprecedented levels of performance. The TAD-E1 carries a suggested retail price of $29,800 (pair) and will be available in the U.S. starting in February.

Highlights of the TAD-E1 Speakers include: 

The TAD-C600 preamplifier completes the Reference Series, which includes the Reference One speaker system, the TAD-CR1 Compact Reference, the D600 disc player and the M600 Monaural Power Amplifier. The C600 is the perfect complement to the collection, providing ultra-precise sound quality. The C600 carries a suggested retail price of $42,000 and will be available in the U.S. starting in February.

Highlights of the C-600 Preamp include:

To maintain left-right channel uniformity, vital for optimum stereo imaging and sound-field immersion, dual mono construction is employed. Identical in every way from input to output, from the circuit boards layout for the left and right channels down to wire lengths and dressing, each channel is isolated from the other by a central dividing shield to further enhance imaging.
