CRONOS MAGNUM II INTEGRATED AMPLIFIER

The reputation that the award winning Cronus Magnum II has garnered in the high end audio world is the ineluctable and logical consequence of its rigorous design, excellent built quality and unbeatable sound. The Cronus Magnum II comfortably out-performs other integrated amps costing many times more. Its pure tube design provides a smooth, almost liquid sound that has made it a reviewer favourite and a true masterpiece in eyes and ears of end-users. With its circuitry having been borrowed from Rogue Audio’s most advanced amplifier designs, and having at its disposal a very conservatively rated 100 Watts of power per channel, the Cronus Magnum II effortlessly reproduces even the most demanding musical passages. Featuring a headphone amplifier and MM phono pre-amplifier, the Cronus Magnum II provides a complete solution to anyone’s amplification needs. As far as technology, innovation and components go, the Cronus Magnum II uses a triode pre-amplifier coupled to Rogue Audio’s excellent Atlas Magnum power amplifier. An over-sized linear power supply stores tremendous energy for low frequency response and dynamic headroom. The tube circuitry is cutting edge with short signal paths and exacted in a low noise design. Finally, precision components are used to provide the transparency and air that are so critical to accurate musical reproduction.
