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.

HTR-1500CD / HTR-1000CD v.3 - what are the recommendations for USB flash drives?

Not all USB flash drives may be compatible and supported with the chip used in the USB module –  a list of compatible drives is not available.

  • Maximum capacity supported - 64GB.
  • File systems supported - FAT32/exFAT.
  • Maximum number of folders and files supported - 9900 (counted altogether) – there are allowed 99 folders in the root directory and 99 tracks in each (so the total number of tracks is 9801).
  • Maximum 9 layers including the root directory is supported for nested folders (folders within folders).
  • We recommend using Latin alphabet letters for song names.
