In this week’s Picture Sunday post we’re taking a look at the Tia Trió by 64 Audio.
This post is part of our Picture Sunday episodes, where we take a first look at gear in the review queue. If you want to read more of them, you can do so here.
The Tia Trió isn’t a new model, no, it has been around for 1.5 years already. That doesn’t make it old news though and the Trió certainly should be in the spotlight more often. It stands in the shadow of its big brother, the Fourté, which reigns over 64 Audio’s line-up.
I’m sure many people know, the Trió uses a completely tube-less design. It utilizes special designed sound-chambers to bring the audio to you eardrums. It is a triple driver hybrid design, which comes with a ten milimeter dynamic for bass and mids, a balanced armature driver for upper mids and the infamous TIA driver for highs.
One thing where the Trió and the Fourté differ is, that the Trió uses a dedicated frequency expansion chamber for the dynamic driver. This allows for a superior mid-range control over the back vented dynamic, according to 64’s website.
The Trió also comes with LID, which was also introduced with it. It stands for Linear Impedance Design and makes sure the Trió sounds its very best out of any source, no matter the output impedance of it. LID flattens the impedance curve of the monitor and guarantees a coherent result in audio performance.
Sound wise the Trió is tuned more accessible with a warmer approach than the Fourté, which is known for its hyper agile and precise treble section. For people who didn’t dig the Fourté, I think the Trió might be worth consideration.
The Trió is packed with a powerful bass, full and organic mids and a fast and energetic treble. Trio creates a wonderful and holographic sound stage with excellent imaging and great resolution. So far it has proven a greeat choice for many different genres, but I’m really enjoying some good old Classic Rock with it. It has clocked in some serious hours of ear-time already and I can’t wait to tell you guys more about its strengths and weaknesses in the full fledged review.
Keep your eyes open for the review of the Tia Trió in the upcoming weeks.
