TEAC Reference700 Series 2000x1000

Perfectly Pairs With The TEAC UD-701N

Better together, the VRDS-701T makes an audiophilic match with the TEAC UD-701N USB digital-to-analog convertor (DAC)/Network Player. When combined, you’ll experience superb audio playback supporting DSD512 (22.5MHz) and PCM 384kHz/32-bit PCM while running your highest resolution files.

Built-In MQA Core Decoder

The VRDS-701T’s core decoder can digitally output MQA-encoded CDs at 88.2 kHz, great for those seeking a powerful and refined approach to high fidelity home entertainment. When paired together with a DAC that has an MQA rendering function, playback using MQA full coding is also possible.

Perfectly Timed With Two Master Clocks

Ensure accurate timing and synchronization with dual on-board clocks.

  • 44.1kHz and 48kHz frequencies
  • 10MHz external clock input

Proprietary Vibration-Free Rigid Disc-Clamping System (VRDS) Technology

The pinnacle in CD transport technology, this single-well CD Transport utilizes a VRDS derived from TEAC’s flagship HiFi line, Esoteric. And by eliminating the DAC function in this model, the internal circuitry has been optimized for larger componentry and enhanced digital output.


This TEAC-original CD drive mechanism reduces rotation vibration of the disc itself as well as unwanted mechanism vibration by clamping the CD to an aluminum turntable with the same diameter and maximizing inertial mass in order to stabilize rotation. Servo current is reduced with the turntable by correcting disc warping and distortion and improving the relative optical axis precision of the pickup and disc pit side. This realizes reduced disc reading errors and creates outstanding audio quality.


  • The bridge that supports the turntable is built with carefully-selected lightweight materials that are very rigid and do not transmit vibration.
  • The entire CD mechanism is mounted on the sub-chassis in a semi-floating state to reduce vibration from the main chassis as well as external vibrations.

High Performance Power

Independent high-capacity toroidal core transformers are dedicated to the digital control section and the CD mechanism. These two high-capacity toroidal core transformers enable the current to be supplied with greater stability.

Vibration Control In Every Detail

The entire CD mechanism is mounted on the sub-chassis in a semi-floating state to control the transmission of vibrations between the CD mechanism and the chassis, as well as from the external environment. Power transformers, which tend to generate vibration, are also mounted on a floating structure to reduce such occurrences. As if that weren’t enough, side fins for heat dissipation have been tailored so that each one has a different length in order to eliminate sympathetic vibrations too.
