AURALiC TAURUS MKII Balanced Headphone Amplifier

Smoothed music expression, sophisticated circuit design and brilliant appearance; TAURUS MKII is another exemplary works designed by AURALiC.
AURALiC ORFEO Class-A Output Module — Inspired by Neve 8078 analog console’s circuit design,AURALiC developed ORFEO Class-A output module. The principle of this module is to use a mass of small signal components with best linear characteristic. By packing them though a thermal balance procedure and bias the transistors into Class-A, ORFEO achieves impressive performance with open loop distortion less than 0.001%. With such sophisticated module, TAURUS MKII shares the same warm and natural sound with Neve 8078.
Low Noise Input Buffer — The input buffer of TAURUS MKII is specifically designed by AURALiC to meet the requirement of headphone amplifier usage. This buffer own an exclamatory low noise of less than 0.8uV while maintains high input impedance (100K of RCA and200K of XLR). The low noise input buffer endues TAURUS MKII with a dynamic range over 130dB and possible to fit into any kind of source, even with high output impedance devices such as valve buffered CD, it can still easily capture every details and ensure the reality of music impression.

The smooth, wealthy and detailed voice of TAURUS MKII is a succession of AURALiC’s elegant and gracefulaesthetic taste. Referring to Neve analog console’s circuit design, AURALiC invent the ORFEO Class-A output module and fit them into TAURUS MKII. TheORFEO module offers great driving ability by delivers1000mW (600ohm) to 4500mW (32ohm) power into more than a few so much; this allows TAURUS MKII to squeeze out each headphone’s capabilities, unfold the wonderful thing about their unique sonic style.

Resorting to the ultra low noise input buffer tailored byAURALiC, TAURUS MKII has a wide dynamic range greater than 130dB whilst maintains the output noise lower than 5uV. With such astonishing performance, TAURUS is in a position to capture essentially the most tiny music expression coming from the source component.

The TAURUS MKII builds at the design of the original award-winning TAURUS, launched in 2010, by concentrating all surface-mounted components in an audio signal patch. It also increased the TAURUS’ EMI shielding, reducing noise from the input buffer to 0.8uV, lower than half the level of the original. Moreover, AURALiC improved the input switch circuit to increase the isolation among different input channels, which reinforces performance when the TAURUS MKII is hooked up to a couple of sources.

Real-time Switchable Working Mode -- With a unique 4-way individual output structure, you'll configure TAURUS MKII into standard or balanced working mode by simply pressing the button at the front panel without power off the unit or unplug the headphone. In the usual mode, TAURUS MKII can output 4500mW continuous and undistorted power into32ohm, satisfy the toughest headphone's driving requirement; when facing high impedance so much, TAURUS MKII can also deliver 1000mW continuous and undistorted power into 600ohm in balanced mode. Such flexible design allows TAURUS MKII to match most brand new high quality headphones in an excellent way. [amz_corss_sell asin="B00NVU2P7C"]
