    Not a meet, but an “event”. Hey, it’s something to do.

    I posted this before, but I do live near the T+A US rep (he is right near FL/GA border). Nice guy, but more/less states OAFAS is their target audience with a standard dealer network. Nope......

    I saw the headphones upfront at my local audio store (they are a T+A dealer). They look overpriced with their headphone amp, but I never took a listen.

    T&A, so 80ties man. Reminds me of the old B-movies with action stars who have cheesy lines.

    As soon as I said T&A to my wife, she cringed. T+A stands for Theory and Application in the field of audio technology, according to their site. They are German, and my guess T&A doesn't mean the same thing over there.

    Did anyone watch the broadcast?

    No because I'm not OAFAS, which what the T+A US rep more/less said that's their target audience to me upfront.

    Indeed it does, The German name for T+A is "Theorie und Anwendung" which literally translates to "Theory and Application".

    @schnesim, you may not be aware that in the USA, T&A refers to “tits and ass”, and is a misogynistic reference to women.

    Descriptive use:

    What happened to T+A shows like Baywatch?

    HBO toned down the T+A toward the end of GoT

    Where's the T+A?
    (@CanJam show)

    Maybe some smart artwork can be applied to the dual VU meters on the TA200 headamp.

    I seen the TA200 upfront at my local audio shop: Those VU meters makes you feel so good when overpaying on their stuff.

    Thanks, I didn't know. Now the comments in this thread suddenly make a lot more sense.

    Edit

    Even under this new light "Tits + Ass" also literally translates to "Titten + Arsch".
    But it's not a very commonly used phrase so most likely no one will think of it when talking about T+A.

    Review is usaul ORFAS fare, but the measurements of the digital filtering are instructive...price does not mean right.
