Sphinx v2 Integrated Amplifier

Dynamic, transparent, and profoundly musical, the Sphinx v2 sets a new standard in affordable integrated amplifiers. Utilizing sophisticated circuitry borrowed from Rogue Audio’s most advanced designs, the Sphinx v2 is able to outperform separates costing far more than its single box design. And with 100 watts of hybrid power, this integrated is capable of realistic volume levels that will rival the clarity and presence of the original performance.

The Sphinx v2 contains a discrete headphone amplifier and an excellent phono section compatible with high output MM and MC cartridges. Active and fixed outputs allow for the addition of a subwoofer or other out-board devices. A high capacity linear power supply provides tremendous energy storage to recreate the deepest bass passages while various regulated power supply stages provide ultra-smooth sound in the midrange and treble. The machined aluminium faceplate is available in either black or silver to compliment the rest of your components and the optional remote further adds the convenience of remote volume operation.
