Description

Tucana II

Sharing DNA with its staggering sibling, the Leema Reference Series Altair IV, the Tucana II is an even more accomplished performer than its multi-award winning predecessor.

Improved dynamic drive, resolution of fine detail and remarkable clarity, help the Tucana II present music with life-like swing and verve, comfortably driving even the most fussy of today’s audiophile speakers.

The technically groundbreaking dual-mono design uses three heavy-duty toroidal power transformers, one for each channel and one for the control circuitry. This, coupled with a robust and highly refined multi-bipolar output stage, ensures that music is delivered with a vice-like grip and precise loudspeaker control.

Tucana II features an MP3 front-panel input, fixed gain input for AV connection, balanced XLR inputs as standard and a dedicated headphone output.

The user interface offers balance control and individually adjustable input gains, both of which were originally developed for the Reference Series Pyxis pre-amplifier.

Tucana II can also operate as a LIPS® system master or slave, and is able to talk to other Leema components. This enables the Tucana II to automatically configure other devices in a multi-unit home cinema system of uncompromising audiophile quality.

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.
