Description

Tucana II Anniversary Edition

Since its introduction, the Tucana Integrated Amplifier has always delivered unparalleled audio quality in a premium chassis that has been very well-received by users and press alike. As such the Tucana has received multiple awards in the decade following its launch, and has established itself as a reference-quality device delivering what other amplifiers can only aspire to.

To celebrate 10 years of the Tucana, Leema has revisited those keys areas within the circuitry that matter the most when defining the character and delivery of its already impressive sound. The result is the Tucana Anniversary Edition, which, along with revitalised internals, is also fitted with a gorgeous new front panel with machined and chrome-plated solid billet Leema Delta logo and ANNIVERSARY EDITION badges.

Inside the changes continue, the printed circuit boards are upgraded with double the weight of copper, further reducing the resistance of PCB traces and improving power delivery. All relevant capacitors have been upgraded to the Nichicon high quality audio grade MUSE Series.

PCB-to-speaker terminal wiring is now Leema’s Reference 2 speaker cable, comprising 16 woven cores, multi strand high purity copper, with individual strand silver plating.

As before all transistors are hand-selected and precision-matched in amplifier sets for optimal performance and lowest distortion. The power amplifier transformers are the excellent Noratel XTRA QUIET units ensuring perfect power delivery without undesirable hum or excessive heat generation.

As with the rest of the Constellation series, this unit is supplied with Leema’s new Focus remote. Make no mistake, this is still the Tucana you know and love, simply better.

Of course Leema didn’t stop there; inside the box each amplifier will have an individual passport, with each stage of assembly signed off by the production operative responsible. A duplicate of the production testing and measuring result documentation signed off by the test engineer is also included. The unit itself will be supplied in a re-usable cloth bag with printed Leema logo and the packaging inserts are now 100% recycled high impact black cellular foam, meaning the entire packaging is now fully recyclable.

Brand

Leema Acoustics

Founded in 1998, Leema Acoustics was originally a means of further exploring the fanatical interest in audio reproduction of its two founders, ex-BBC engineers Lee Taylor and Mallory Nicholls.

Following the success of their first project (the Xen micro-monitor, sold to pro-audio customers only), the founders decided to turn their expertise to audio electronics, and their first domestic product, (the Tucana integrated amplifier) subsequently won the distinguished Hi-Fi News amplifier of the year award. Since then, the Leema Acoustics portfolio of class-leading products has expanded to include the Constellation, Stellar, Elements and Essentials series. Their products continue to attract international acclaim, including many “best in class” reviews and numerous eminent awards.
