T+A Solitaire P
Like the Solitaire series of loudspeakers, the new Solitaire P symbolises the experience, expertise and commitment in the design and development of sound transducers which have been our hallmark for 41 years. These new corded Over-Ear headphones have been developed by a team of young engineers and experienced physicists who share a deep passion for music.
The minimalist design of the Solitaire P references the iconic T+A High-End series, and – like all T+A devices – addresses aesthetes just as much as those who appreciate music, innovation and modern craftsmanship. The form of the bracket connections is reminiscent of the HV series, while the chambers are an unmistakable reminder of T+A identity.
The Solitaire P features an ultra-lightweight cone and planar drive, which offers “enormous physical advantages and concomitant sonic benefits with … the entire surface of the cone driven by a unique magnet design.” Hand-made at the main factory in Herford, (Germany). Everything inside the box is laid out with military precision. Two superb, high-quality detachable cables are included in the box. T+A gives a choice of cables when ordering the Solitaire P headphones. The review pair I was loaned included a regular 6.35 mm unbalanced stereo jack and another cable terminated with a Pentaconn balanced 4.4 mm jack.
