Verified Purchase
Solid, textured bass and sparkling highs atypical of digital amps. Sweet mids. Moderate soundstage width that is expected to open up with break-in. precise 3d placement of voices and instruments. Air and decay are very realistic. Can just sit back and listen to the music.

By calaf on July 28, 2014
I decided to take a risk and buy a Teac AI-2000 after reading enthusiastic reviews on a couple of French and German forums. I am really puzzled by the fact the Teac Distinction series is basically unknown in the UK and US: since I bought this online, I was not able to A-B it with any of its better known competitors around the $1K mark (Marantz, Yamaha, Peachtree, Arcam, etc), but I would venture to say the Teac is a notch or two above any integrated I have auditioned in terms of transparency, imaging (not surprising given the dual-mono design) and, above all, speed.

1) Speed, toe-tapping speed across the spectrum. In particular the Teac has the fastest, tightest bass I have heard coming out my speakers or headphones (see #5). Listening to a drum or bass solo is exhilarating.
2) Excellent micro- and macro-dynamics: very satisfactory detail retrieving when listening to baroque chamber music at low volumes, and amazing composure when blasting hard-rock at furniture-shaking level (literally)
3) Nice flat response with a touch of midrange bloom and high frequency roll-off. Certainly there is not a hint of harshness even at extremely high volumes, and my speakers have a reputation for having a hot treble.
[EDIT: to judge the spectral response, I compared my DAC line out connected to the Teac preamp input with my DAC preamp out connected to the TEAC bypass input. Overall I prefer the TEAC preamp character, but if one is looking for ultimate flatness and only listens to very well recorded material, using the bypass input further increases the amp transparency]
4) Surprisingly good phono input: the Marantz amp I had before was supposed to have a great phono input, but the Teac has another level of transparency.
