Centaur II Stereo

BROCHURE

A state-of-the-art race car.

New power supply with 3 times the capacitance. Higher bias current for extended Class A operation. 250 watts per channel into 8 ohms, 800 into 2 ohms. Fully discrete balanced bridged circuitry for extraordinary fidelity. Larger, deep-fin heat sink for efficient cooling and outstanding reliability.

Think of Centaur II as a state-of-the-art race car with an upgraded engine. The amplification circuits are essentially the same as in the original Centaur, but the power supply is radically improved. Supply capacitance is now tripled, with 18 10,000-microfarad capacitors replacing the original six. With three times as much stored energy on tap, Centaur II now achieves even stronger deep bass response and more dramatic dynamics.
