HTA-1200 is a 80W/8ohm high-fidelity hybrid integrated amplifier utilizing a 12AX7 tube preamp section with a cathode type amp circuit and a 12AU7 stage serving as a buffer amplifier, and four Toshiba transistors at the output. This solution ensures a very warm, linear and lifelike sound with high dynamic presentation at the same time.

High-performance tubes and precise high voltage transistor hybrid power supply provide voltage stability and very low AC ripple current. It reflects in a more natural and fresh sound with deep multidimensional soundstage.

High-power toroidal 300W transformer provides constant and immediately-available  energy at any volume level.

High-power transistors utilized in the 0dB current amplification circuit reveal more content of the music, giving extra pure energy and dynamics to drive even very demanding and powerful speakers.

The tube circuit cross-connected with audiophile grade MKP capacitors ensures stable playback improving music tone and sound field depth.

Audiophile grade  ALPS volume potentiometer provides minimal noises and channels crosstalk and has excellent operational feel and limits errors between the two channels.

The high-end class, gold-plated speaker terminals offer almost lossless audio signal transmission to speakers.

Analog inputs with high-end solid machined brass RCA sockets can accommodate up to 4 stereo devices including a turntable (both MM and MC cartridges) so you can enjoy music from your favorite vinyl records.

You can connect a range of  digital devices via optical or coaxial inputs and a built-in premium high-resolution 24bit / 192kHz DAC will always provide the best sound performance.

For those who prefer discrete listening we equipped the HTA-1200 with a high-end headphone preamplifier.

The preamplifier output is dedicated for an optional external power amplifier or powered subwoofer and speakers.

The removable IEC power cable gives you an option to upgrade your system with a premium audiophile power cable in any time.

The HTA-1200 is a splendid mixture of analog tube sound, power, precision, purity and multidimensional soundstage imaging!

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.
