The Statement Series*

TDS

The NVA Statement range makes no compromises in sound, appearance or build quality. Encompassing source components, amplifiers and interconnects, the Statement range is a fundamental rethink of the priorities behind hi-fi.

Enhancing your musical experience

Using specially selected rare electronic components, the Statement range stretches the boundaries of musical experience available from a hi-fi system. Careful design ensures the smallest possible information loss, giving you the vividness and involvement of live music performance - or getting you closer to the detail and nuance of the original studio mix.

Enhancing your home

NVA Statement feature a dramatic departure from the conventional box construction used by ordinary hi-fi. You will be proud to show your friends the Statements' beautiful deep-chromed housings, hand-built by craftsmen.

Rethinking connectors

The NVA Statement range is equipped with SMA inputs, an advanced screw-thread connector that provides superior sound quality to conventional phonos by providing a totally secure connection and precise impedance matching between cable and circuitry. Of course, NVA can provide SMA-to-phono interconnects so you can use conventional source components with Statements.

The Statement Models

T.I.S. - The Integrated Statement amplifier

TIS is the affordable way to experience NVA Statement quality. The smallest amplifier in the range, TIS features separate signal paths with individual volume controls, as well as a specially configured split power supply.

Specification   Product Review
Inputs Six pairs of SMA
Output (line level) One pair SMA tape output/direct input
Output (loudspeakers) Two pairs high quality 4mm sockets
Power supply One split 300VA transformer; 46,000µF in two four-stage power supplies
Size 250 x 450 x 130mm (wdh)

T.E.S. - The Emotive Statement CD player

TES

TES is a fresh approach to CD player design. NVA places separate transport, control, digital-to-analogue converters and power supplies on a single aluminum alloy Statement chassis.

Using over-specified split power supplies for both CD transport and digital-to-analogue converter, paired with simple circuitry featuring high quality components, TES attains new levels of musical performance from the digital medium.

TES comes complete with easy to use remote control.

Specification
Output One pair SMA analogue
  One SMA digital
Power supply Transport: one split 300VA transformer.
  Digital-to-analogue: one split 300VA transformer.
Transport Highly customised NAD transport with tri-beam linear tracking laser
DAC Philips Bit-Stream 1-bit single chip D/A converter, with a 256x final sample rate and a typical 15.5 bit resolution
Size 640 x 380 x 130mm (wdh)

T.S.S. - The Second Statement preamplifier

TSS PreAmp

The matching preamplifier for NVA Statement power amplifiers, TSS preamplifier features separate signal paths with individual volume controls, and a full range of SMA inputs and outputs for maximum flexibility.


T.S.S. - The Second Statement stereo power amplifier

TSS is based on NVA's revolutionary two-stage amplifier circuit. Each channel is driven by two separate power supplies for greater dynamic freedom and musical analysis. The two ¼ inch thick circuit boards - ten times thicker than conventional boards - each feature £90 worth of pure gold to ensure the lowest possible signal degradation.

TSS power amplifier must be used with a high quality passive preamplifier. For best performance, we strongly recommend TSS power amplifier be matched with an NVA Statement preamplifier, the best performing units we know at any price.

Specification
Inputs Pair of SMA
Outputs Two pairs of 4mm sockets
Power Supply Two 450VA, plus two 300VA transformers; a total of 92,000µF in four four-stage power supplies
Size 400 x 450 x 130mm (wdh)

T.D.S. - The Definitive Statement mono power amplifier

TDS

A monoblock unit featuring NVA's unique four-stage amplifier circuit with quadruple power supplies, featuring over specified transformers and large capacitors.

The revolutionary TDS features ¼ inch thick circuit boards - ten times thicker than conventional ones - for maximum isolation from external interference. Each circuit also features £90 worth of pure gold - the most that can be applied to the TDS circuit. The result is an amplifier with effortless dynamics and a breathtaking sense of realism.

TDS power amplifier must be used with a high quality passive preamplifier. For best performance, we strongly recommend TDS power amplifier be matched with an NVA Statement preamplifier, the best performing units we know at any price.
