THE STATEMENT RANGE ARCHIVE


"These amplifiers are an overwhelming argument for the rightness of the company's radical view on all things audio. If you're in the market for the very best in power amps, give yourself a treat and make sure you audition them."

Dave Wiley - Audiophile (1993)


The original Statement Range consisted of the following models:

  • The Integrated Statement Amplifier (T.I.S.)
  • The Complete Statement Amplifier (T.C.S.)
  • The Second Statement Pre Amplifier (T.S.S.)
  • The Definitive Statement mono Power Amplifier (T.D.S.)
  • The Second Statement stereo Power Amplifier (T.S.S.)
  • The Transparent Statement CD Player (T.T.S.)
  • The Emotive Statement CD Player (T.E.S.)

Below you can find more specific information about some of the historic Statement Range.

T.I.S. - The Integrated Statement Amplifier

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

Specification:

  • 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 - w250 x d450 x h130mm

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

T.E.S. 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, T.E.S. attains new levels of musical performance from the digital medium.

T.E.S. 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: w640 x d380 x h130mm

T.S.S. - The Second Statement Pre-Amplifier

The matching preamplifier for NVA Statement power amplifiers, T.S.S. 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

T.S.S, 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.

T.S.S. power amplifier must be used with a high quality passive preamplifier. For best performance, we strongly recommend T.S.S. 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: w400 x d450 x h130mm

T.D.S. - The Definitive Statement Mono Power Amplifier

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

The revolutionary T.D.S. 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 T.D.S. circuit. The result is an amplifier with effortless dynamics and a breathtaking sense of realism.

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

Specification:

  • Input: Single SMA
  • Output: One pair 4mm sockets, 80W
  • Power Supply: Two 450VA, plus two 300VA transformers; a total of 92,000µF in four four-stage power supplies
  • Size: w350 x d405 x h130mm

NVA TUBE RANGE

NVA also produced a special range called the NVA Tube, this included:

  • The Tube
  • Control Tube
  • Control Tube (mit Phono)
  • Power Tube
