Versatile Compact Amplifier

Robert s from St Louis, MO on 10/19/2014

Verified customer (What's this?)
Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

Multiple inputs cover all three uses I have for a small amplifier, and it makes good use of the compact speakers that were sitting in my closet. I have used it with the WiFi single speaker internet radio, and with the flat screen TV, both providing all the sound I can tolerate at less than half volume. I will be testing the hookup to a computer after a few weeks luxury on the TV. This amplifier speaker combo is very compact and fits well into the limited space in each of my living areas.

Pros: Provides a significant sound improvement to the cheap speakers that are put in the new electronic devices under the cover of miniaturization.

Cons: none

Great all in one unit

by921 from stephens city, Virginia on 7/24/2014

Verified customer (What's this?)
Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

This is running a pair of audioengine p4 speakers with a Polk audio psw108 subwoofer. This unit is more then enough power for these speakers in a small room set up. It is being used off of a laptop with misc flac and mp3 music. Also the headphone out sound great. I am using sennheiser hd558 and amplifies them very well. The teac may not do very well if your headphones need a lot of power but does very well with the hd558s.

Pros: Sound quality, small size, build quality

Cons: Drivers aren't the best

Great little but powerful amplifier

Pacomo from St. Petersburg, FL on 6/2/2014

Verified customer (What's this?)
Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

I bought this amp to listen to music while working on my Apple computer. I connected via the USB port and I use JRiver to play music. The system is paired with 2 Polk Audio TSi 100 speakers. The setup was straight forward and the driver installation painless. Everything worked at the first try. The sound is clear and balance with the right level of bass (for my taste). The price is right. I really recommend this amp.

Pros: Price. Easy to set up. Quality sound. Great DAC.

Cons: None.

Nice product with some quirks

Jon H. from Chicago, IL on 5/16/2014

Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

This amp is perfect for a desktop setup. It has more than enough power for near field listening. It is powered by the well known ICEPower 50asx2 module for the amp section. What this means to the end user is great sound quality with low power consumption and little heat. I have mostly using it with the analog input fed by another USB dac, and I've been very pleased with the sound. The drivers supplied by Teac do appear to work fine on my Mac mini. I have yet to try it with WIndows. The USB input is flaky under Linux, but I wasn't anticipating it to work, so there is no reasonable way I can complain about that. As other reviewers have noted, the remote is really an afterthought. It doesn't have the ability to power the unit on or off. For a desktop system, this is really not an issue, and I knew this going in. However, it would be an inconvenience for someone who wants this for a conventional stereo. I have used this with a couple of different types of speakers, the first being a set of Mission MS-50s and the second set being B&W 686s. It worked well with the Missions, but the performance with the B&Ws surprised me. Overall, I am pleased with the performance of this amp. The speaker connectors are very nice for an item at this price level.

Pros: Nice sound. Runs cool. Low power consumption.

Cons: Remote is somewhat useless.

Overall, this is a marvelous unit. The power is clean and the sound is balanced. It fits perfectly on m desk with room to spare.

Pros: Small footprint, big on power.

Cons: Remote control buttons are too small to be effective - I cannot see the labels and they are all the same color.

Good Product. Ok Sound

M from San Diego, CA on 5/5/2014

Verified customer (What's this?)
Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

I use this amp with my 2012 Mac Pro and Polk LSi7 bookshelf speakers. The amp is powerful enough to drive my 4-ohm LSi7s with aplomb. With the volume at 9 o'clock, the sound already fills my small home office room. The only drawback, if we really want to find one, is that this amp does not have the presence of better amps. I had connected the same LSi7s to a $1,300 Yamaha A-S1000 a couple of years ago, and it had more detail, a fuller tridimensional soundstage, and made singers sound as if they were in the room. But that's to be expected from an amp that is three to four times the price. It was also much, much bigger and heavier that this little TEAC that fits nicely on my desk next to my monitor. Overall a great buy. If you are connecting it to your computer, remember to first install the drivers (even on Mac OS X) from the Teac web site.

Pros: Small amp, big sound. Powerful enough to drive 4-ohm speakers

Cons: Somewhat dull sound.

Have to agree with the fact that the remote is just too problematic. If you have this on your desktop and are looking for marvelous sound and want to manage the amplifiers functions manually it is super. But even straight on the remotes responsiveness is too sporadic.

Pros: size and clarity

Cons: Remote inadequate

TEAC A-H01 Integrated Amp

Mikey@70 from Philadelphia, PA on 4/20/2014

Verified customer (What's this?)
Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

Impressed with the very compact form factor which I was looking for and the sound (as described in most reviews) is remarkable for such a small device. All-in-all, I would highly recommend this amp for someone looking for performance without the bulk.

Pros: Small form factor, great sound.

Cons: Limited connectivity, no remote function for ON/OFF which is quite strange.

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

Verified employee purchase (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

Gary from Chillicothe, Ohio on 1/22/2014

Verified customer (What's this?)
Verified employee purchase (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.

Product Research


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.

4 questions already asked

I've read that when connected to a sub and when using headphones, the sub still plays, or makes some noise. Can anyone tell me if this is true? I want to primarily use this as a headphone amp, but occasionally play through speakers and sub.

no info on that as i was using for my tv but since the remote control works poorly (if at all), the unit is back in the box and stored in the garage
[ scott  Jun 03, 2014 ]
When I turn on the amp, begin playing music and then plug in the headphone jack, the entire system is silent - no music or low frequency bass at all. I placed my hands on the sub after turning up the volume on the amp and still nothing - the headphone jack truly closes the music circuit.
[ JOHN  May 31, 2014 ]
I hooked up my Phase Technology sub to the A-H01 and played without headphones. Sound is wonderful! When I plugged in my headphones, the sub went silent - no noise or sound at all. Hope this helps.
[ Michael  May 31, 2014 ]
I have not experienced this problem...using a pair AKG headphones my Martin Login powered sub woofer (dynamo 300) can't be heard which is on and paired to a pair of Ohm Walsh 2 towers....I hope this helps......james

[ GARY  May 30, 2014 ]
I don't get any sound from the external speakers with the headphones connected. Turned it up to 11 with the phones in just to be sure, no noise at all. I'm using my PC as an audio source: connected via toslink and driving Audioengine P4s with an S8 sub. Hope this helps

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 ]
Has anyone used this amp with a speaker selector and 4 pairs of 8 ohm speakers? Two pairs? Most selectors prefer an amp that is stable down to 4 ohms impedance.
[ MICHAEL  Nov 04, 2014 ]

Michael, The amp is still pretty new for me and I am still trying different speakers to get the most from the amp. You could use this amp ,in my opinion, with 2 pairs of 8 ohm speakers but I don't think an amp with 45 watts to play with, will give you the amplitude you may want to drive more then this. It WILL WORK but the amp will run hotter and the power reserves will be lowered; using 4 pairs I think will a bit hard on this amplifier. Again all this is my feeling with the time I've had using the HO1. Good Luck! Stephen
[ Stephen  Nov 09, 2014 ]
nope. subwoofer and two infinity speakers, toslink from a tv -- works beautifully
[ Michael  Nov 06, 2014 ]
Hey Mike... This little amp is sweat....I'm running 2 OHM Walsh towers which require 100/125 amps min. each and the sound is incredible! Even better than my Son of Monzilla amp that was pushing 400 amps which this replaces! The sound is clean and beautiful which I quite frankly never believed could happen with an amp this small. My living room is 15' by 22' and it fills the area....I couldn't be happier with the sound......good luck!........james
[ JAMES M  Nov 05, 2014 ]
No I haven't but I would think as long as your impedance matches you should be ok. You won't have the power as a 2 speaker setup.
[ vito  Nov 05, 2014 ]

No standby mode. Equipment I use it with takes a few seconds to come to life (despite their standby settings), amp is ready to go when they are. Product manual does not brag about low energy use; I would recommend it be turned off when not in use.
[ Robert  Oct 20, 2014 ]
I'm afraid I can't be of much help on this. We turn on ours when we need it, which is about once every couple of days for an hour or two to watch TV or movies. Also, don't know anything about the energy usage. Sorry.
[ Jeremy  Oct 20, 2014 ]
I am not aware of any standby mode....... Also, I don't believe this unit was design to be on 24/7..........
[ FRED F.  Oct 20, 2014 ]
I have this unit, and it is either off or on, no standby as you suggest. Unfortunately the remote controls every function but power, so you have to hit the power button to turn it on or off. Otherwise, it is a terrific, compact amplifier that is great for external speakers for the TV.
