Trulifeaudio is a company that makes state of the art hand made audio equipment of world class standard. There are three lines of products that TLA makes, the main line is called the “XACTIVE” and it is on this line that all topologies are first applied. The “XACTIVE” series is implemented with minimal active parts used in the signal path, dedicated power supply and valve rectification with choke filters for each stage, zero feedback and interstage transformers from one stage to the next. Exactly the same implementation is applied to our higher series which is the “PERSONAL” series of products, the difference between these two lines is that the “Xactive” is of regular production, while the “Personal”, as the name suggests, is a line where the customer is personally involved as to have his own unique design and appearance as well as naming of the device, both the “Xactive” and the “Personal” lines are implemented like being “Xactive Sound Reproduction Instruments”.
The introduction line is called the “MANTEION by TLA”. It is essentially the same topologies of circuits that have been applied on the “Xactive” series however, it is a design were some compromises are made after hours of continuous listening tests, in a manner that the sound quality is still state of the art up to world standard. But the compromises that have been applied from the “Xactive” series respective implementation is kept to a minimum possible.
We pay special care so that all our products have a TruLife sound quality, with lightspeed transients, phenomenal dynamics and deep bass control, absence of colorations, luck of distortion, impressive micro detail and completely flat frequency response from the deepest of bass, up to the most airy of highest harmonics. To achieve this, the designs are all based on TLA’s unique know-how of constructing state of the art audio transformers. The transformer making facility of TLA is active from 1957. The chassis that is housing “Xactive” and “Personal” devices are also made on the company’s own CNC and are of state of the art quality. The face plates of the “Manteion by TLA” products are also made on TruLife Audio’s CNC machine, all lettering is engraved on the manufactured surfaces.
“Xactive” and “Personal” devices are essentially designed having in mind a perfect “straight wire” amplification and as such, to last forever and to improve in performance with time. TLA’s “Xactive” and “Personal” series, are expected to keep their value (exactly like art pieces) and to be appreciated as collector items. TLA is not a company that targets mass production, our ability to only make a limited number of our handmade state of the art transformers, forbits such an approach so, the more than 2MHz of bandwidth that is now offered by our interstage transformers, or the more than 100KHz frequency response (more than 80KHz of the response is completely flat) is expected to be improved further in the future. The same research we also do for new passive components that are examined to be used in our topologies, any improvement that we find, we immediately implement in our designs.
