Our take on the TEAC A-H01

by Woody Sherman
TEAC

Everything you always wanted in a stereo receiver, except the radio

An integrated amplifier is essentially a receiver without a built-in AM/FM tuner. You get power to drive your speakers, audio controls, and inputs for music source components. Connect an iPod, a computer, a network music player, or any other device that can play Internet radio, and you may find you have no need for an AM/FM radio.

Big sound from a small footprint

TEAC's A-H01 stereo integrated amplifier is proof that full-sized sound doesn't always require a full-sized component. In fact, they've found a way to combine the essentials for great music reproduction in a slimline, small-footprint form that will look great in your dorm room or apartment.

High-resolution audio-ready

Versatile digital music handling from a built-in Burr-Brown digital-to-analog converter (DAC) that supports high-resolution sampling rates up to 192kHz/32-bit. Hook up your Mac or PC to the asynchronous USB input, and you're off and running with your audiophile FLAC, Apple® lossless, and WAV files. The TEAC website has all the drivers you'll need available online. And websites like HDTracks offer a wide selection of downloadable music in high-res formats. The A-H01's cool-running Class D amplifier section generates 22 watts of unflappable RMS power per channel.

The TEAC A-H01 has the connections you'll need to get great sound from your digital and analog sources.

The TEAC A-H01 has the connections you'll need to get great sound from your digital and analog sources.

The ins and outs

The 'A-H01 features five inputs: the aforementioned USB, two digital inputs (1 coax, 1 optical), and two stereo analog RCA inputs. Add some extra punch to your system's sound by taking advantage of the dedicated subwoofer preamp output. Or, keep your listening immersive and private by plugging in to the headphone output on the front panel.

Highlights:

  • compact, low-profile design handles both high-resolution digital and analog music sources
  • 22 watts x 2 into 8 ohms; 50 watts x 2 into 4 ohms (20-40,000 Hz at <1% THD)
  • 192kHz/32-bit Burr-Brown DAC assures clean, accurate, and jitter-free playback of your digital music
  • plays FLAC, Apple Lossless, WAV and other high-resolution files
  • accepts sample rates of 32/44.1/48/88.2/96/176.4/192 kHz
  • 5 audio inputs (3 digital, 2 analog)
    • asynchronous, B-type high-speed USB port accepts high-resolution digital audio files from PCs and Macs (drivers required; available as free downloads at http://www.teac.com/product/a-h01/downloads/)
    • optical digital input
    • coaxial digital input
    • 2 stereo RCA analog inputs
  • no phono input — to connect a turntable you'll need to add a phono preamp
  • stereo binding-post speaker terminals
  • dedicated mono RCA output for powered subwoofer
  • 1/4" headphone output on front panel
  • remote control
  • 8-1/2"W x 2-7/16"H x 10-3/16"D
  • weight: 3.53 lbs.

Features

Integrated Amplifier w/ USB Streaming: TEAC's A-H01 combines a high-quality D/A converter with a stereo amplifier to create a compact audio system for your home or office. Five inputs are available; two analog and three digital. The Burr Brown digital-to-analog converter supports high-resolution sample rates up to 192kHz/32-bit. The USB 2.0 input can be used with your Mac or Windows computer for audiophile-grade music playback of your music library.

Compact High-Performance/High-Output Amp: The TEAC A-H01 employs a B&O ICE power stereo amplifier providing 30 watts x 2 channel at 1kHz in 8 ohms (or 60 watts x 2 channel at 1kHz in 4 ohms). This highly efficient amplifier design offers high output, low power consumption, and compact dimensions. 

Burr-Brown PCM5102 DAC: The TEAC A-H01 integrated amp uses a Burr Brown PCM5102 DAC for high performance and support of a wide range of digital audio sources. Its three digital inputs (optical/coaxial/USB) support sampling rates of 32, 44.1, 48, 88.2, 96, 176.4, and 19kHz. 16- and 24-bit rates are supported. It's ideal for playback of FLAC, WAV, Apple Lossless and other high-res file formats.

USB Type-B Port for Computer Audio Streaming: The TEAC A-H01 features a USB (type-B) port for connecting your Windows PC or Mac computer. The A-H01 accepts digital audio source material stored on your computer at up to 24-bit/192kHz. The A-H01 also supports USB asynchronous mode, which uses its precise internal clock to control timing and eliminate jitter issues. This allows optimal playback of high-resolution digital audio files from playlists/libraries in your iTunes, Windows Media Player, or similar playback programs on your computer. This unit does not offer control over your computer's music files.

Note: Before using the A-H01 with your computer, you will need to download and install the dedicate TEAC driver on your Windows PC or MAC. Supported operating systems included Windows (XP*/Vista/7/8) and Mac OS X (Snow Leopard/Lion/Mountain Lion). *Windows XP Professional x64 Edition is not supported.

Analog & Digital Inputs: The TEAC A-H01 integrated amp features both analog and digital audio inputs.

  • Dual RCA Inputs: The A-H01 offers two stereo RCA inputs (Line 1 & Line 2) for connection of your external analog audio sources.
  • Optical & Coaxial Digital Inputs: The TEAC A-H01 is fitted with optical (toslink) and coaxial (RCA) digital inputs for connection of other digital audio sources like your CD, DVD, or Blu-ray player. These digital inputs will accept two channel linear PCM (not Dolby Digital/DTS).

Binding Post Speaker Terminals: The TEAC A-H01 integrated amp features four heavy-duty, gold plated binding post terminals to connect a single pair of speakers between 4-8 ohms. The binding post terminals will accept bar wire (up to 8AWG), spade lugs, pin-connectors, and banana plugs (single or dual).

Subwoofer Output: The TEAC A-H01 is fitted with a mono subwoofer RCA output to connect a powered sub for extra bass.

1/4" Headphone Jack: A front-panel 1/4" headphone jack lets you enjoy audio late at night, in spaces with neighbors close by, or other situations where loudspeaker playback might disturb others.

Aluminum Front-Panel: The A-H01 incorporates an aluminum front panel and motor-driven volume knob.

Remote Control:  The TEAC A-H01 comes with an IR remote control for wireless operation of the integrated amplifier. You can choose sources, control volume, and select menu functions from the remote.

Fan-Less Design: To achieve both goals of high performance and compact dimensions, two parameters that conflict with efficient heat dissipation (circuit design and chassis design) emphasized the selection and effective placement of potential heat-generating components to allow this high-performance compact amplifier to operate without cooling fans.

I love Rhapsody and using my laptop to interact with it. I needed this to turn my laptop into a stereo component and connect it to some real speakers. Love it.

Teac A-H01

Written By G Lester, Sacramento, CA on Saturday, March 08, 2014
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
Not a bad little unit. I use it for extra speakers out a TV using the optical out. The biggest disappointment is with the remote switch. It doesn't have a on and off function. In my application it would be very helpful.
Pros:
Small footprint, easy to use, fairly good quality for the price.
Cons:
No on and off on the remote.

Great Amp

Written By Drew, Pittsburgh, PA on Sunday, February 23, 2014
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
I purchased This product because I needed a small Amp for my 2.1 Audio System. I run my TV/PS4/Turntable through this with great results. I was not looking to buy a DAC but saw it as a bonus in this AMP for the price it was on sale for. I now am a believer in good sound replication for digital files. I highly recommend this product for anyone looking to fill a small/medium room with great sound from multiple sources. Thanks for the recommendation Crutchfield.
Pros:
Small Big Sound Good DAC Plenty of Inputs
Cons:
None

Teac A-H01 USB DAC Integrated Stereo Amplifier

Written By Gary, Chillicothe, Ohio on Wednesday, January 22, 2014
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
I purchased the TEAC A-H01 for the built in DAC. I needed a way to play my digital music that I converted from my records. My computer sound card (which is part of the mother board) was going bad. I didn't want to replace the tower for this. The TEAC A-H01 has all the inputs you would need. By using the USB connection I bypass the cheap DAC in the computer. I also connected a powered subwoofer to the TEAC A-H01. The Music sounds great. I control the Volume from the TEAC A-H01. You do have to download the Driver to your computer from their web site for it to work. Simple process. I would recommend this product to anyone.
Pros:
Great sound, low profile, easy to hook up and use. Can be used with several input products
Cons:
Expensive, but you get what you pay for.

Can I use this as a preamp connected to my amplifier? I want something I can connect via usb to my Mac mini to play itunes and hd tracks [ Kevin  Mar 17, 2014 ]
5 answers
  • no, it has no "out", just the the 5 inputs [ james   Mar 19, 2014 ]
  • You should be able to. I use my TEAC A-H01 to bypass my computer sound card by usb cable. the TEAC A-H01 has a much better DAK. You should be able to connect speaker out on DAK to the input of your amplifier. You do need to download the driver to your computer or the DAK won't work. I suggest You contact TEAC to ask them for sure. Crutchfield would not let me include the web site. LOOK IT UP Hope this helps [ GARY   Mar 19, 2014 ]
  • I think you would be better served purchasing a DAC with a volume control built into it. The DAC in this unit feeds its internal amplifier. May want to look at Cambridge Audio dac. [ DAVID   Mar 18, 2014 ]
  • Hi, Kevin - The A-H01 does not have line-out or through outputs, either digital or analog, that allow you to send the LR signals to an external amp, so it is not suitable for use as you envision. The A-H01 is an integrated, all-in-one DAC/preamp/amp intended to drive speakers by itself. If you want something to connect your computer via usb I'd suggest buying a DAC and a preamp for best results, or a "digital preamp" (which will have an integral DAC) with usb, especially if you're buying and enjoying hi-res material from HD Tracks. [ SCOTT R   Mar 18, 2014 ]
  • Sorry, you can't use this as preamp. There is no preout. Unless you want to modify the system and loose warranty. However, built in amp is quite decent. Thanks, [ ABU   Mar 18, 2014 ]
