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.

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.

Pros:
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.

I bought this slightly used from a local hifi shop and I am in shock on how it sounds. I have had a ton of pre/amp combos and Int. Amps over the years but this unit got me from the minute I turned it on and listened to HiRez files along with CD/SACD playback. I have a much higher end system and this unit sounds 99% of what that unit sounds like and a fraction of the cost. I took a risk and it sure paid off, one of my best finds in the last ten years! The only thing I don't get is the bypass mode it says it bypasses tone controls, but their is none on the Amp? Other than that, this unit has been flawless and an enjoyment to use.

1.) Sound quality off the charts
2.) Build Quality
3.) Plenty of hookups and balanced inputs.
4.) Solid Remote

Con:
Can't shut off unit from remote and put it into standby mode.
