The Leema Acoustics Tucana ll Integrated Amplifier is a new version of the earlier 2006 model Tucana. The amplifier extends both performance and features of the original and has improved dynamic drive, high-resolution of fine detail and remarkable clarity.
The Technically advanced dual-mono design uses three refined, heavy-duty toroidal power transformers, one for each channel and one for the control circuitry. This combined with a robust and highly refined multi-bipolar output stage, ensures that music is delivered with a vice-like grip and precise loudspeaker control.
The amplifier features a fixed gain input for AV connection, balanced XLR inputs as standard and a dedicated headphone output. It also features a MP3 input on the front panel of the amplifier.
The Tucana ll’s user interface offers balance control and individually adjustable input gains, both of which have been developed for Leema Acoustics Reference Series Pyxis pre-amplifier.
The Integrated amp;ifier is capable of operating as a LIPS® system master slave and is able to talk to other leema components. This enables the Tucana ll to automatically configure other devices in a multi-unit home cinema system without compromising the audiophile sound quality.
