The HTA-700B v.3 USB combines the analog sound of tubes with the power of transistors to give the best sound at the price!

KEY FEATURES
• Sleek aluminum design is suitable for most interiors.
• Hybrid design utilizing two 5BK7 vacuum tubes (made in the U.S.A.) in the preamp section and transistors ensures a very warm, linear and lifelike sound with high dynamic presentation.
• High-performance and high-power toroidal 150W transformer provides stable, constant and immediately-available energy at any volume level and allows to properly drive different types of speakers.
High grade capacitors (2 x 50V/3300uF) ensure stable playback improving music tone and sound field depth.
• Audiophile Wima capacitors used on the input to and output from the tubes as well as for the tone regulators.
• Audiophile grade Japanese ALPS volume potentiometer provides minimal noises and channels crosstalk and has excellent operational feel and limits errors between the two channels.
Oversized aluminum heat sink system (independent heat sink for each channel) helps to disperse internal heat and allows for long term high power playback with limited distortions.
Bluetooth® - to wirelessly stream music from smartphones, tablets or computers.
2 analog inputs and digital inputs: optical and USB. The USB input supports digital audio files up to 32bit/768kHz or up to DSD512 to play music stored on computers or smartphones.
Preamplifier output dedicated for an optional external power amplifier, a powered subwoofer or active speakers.
• All RCA sockets are gold-plated.
• The high-end class, gold-plated speaker terminals offer almost lossless audio signal transmission to the speakers.
High-fidelity headphone preamplifier for those who prefer discrete listening.
Aluminum remote controller.
• IEC C14 power inlet and a removable Schuko-IEC C13 power cord an option to upgrade your system with a premium audiophile power cable in any time.

Hybrid amplifier

What does it mean and why does TAGA Harmony use this approach?

Hybrid means a combination of two different techniques to create an amplifier in one device: the World of tubes and the World of transistors.

TAGA Harmony amplifiers use vacuum tubes in the preamp section and transistors in the power stage. This results in tube, soft and analog-like sound character and at the same time high dynamics and power provided by transistors, which is usually a weak point of pure tube designs.

The sound of TAGA Harmony hybrid amplifiers is not only silky and rich but also powerful and dynamic. In addition, hybrid amplifiers compared to pure tube amps have better abilities to properly drive different kind of speakers.


After being turned on a hybrid amplifier requires to warm up its tubes to reach its full sound capabilities – it usually takes from 5 to 15 minutes depending on model and room temperature.
