AURALiC ORFEO Class-A Output Module

Inspired by Neve 8078 analog console’s circuit design, AURALiC developed ORFEO Class-A output module. The principle of this module is to use a mass of small signal components with best linear characteristic. By packing them though a thermal balance procedure and bias the transistors into Class-A, ORFEO achieves impressive performance with open loop distortion less than 0.001%. With such sophisticated module, TAURUS MKII shares the same warm and natural sound with Neve 8078.

Low Noise Input Buffer

The input buffer of TAURUS MKII is specifically designed by AURALiC to meet the requirement of headphone amplifier usage. This buffer own an exclamatory low noise of less than 0.8uV while maintains high input impedance (100K of RCA and 200K of XLR). The low noise input buffer endues TAURUS MKII with a dynamic range over 130dB and possible to fit into any kind of source, even with high output impedance devices such as valve buffered CD, it can still easily capture every details and ensure the reality of music impression.

Real-time Switchable Working Mode

With a unique 4-way individual output structure, you can configure TAURUS MKII into standard or balanced working mode by simply pressing the button on the front panel without power off the unit or unplug the headphone. In the standard mode, TAURUS MKII can output 4500mW continuous and undistorted power into 32ohm, satisfy the toughest headphone’s driving requirement; when facing high impedance loads, TAURUS MKII can also deliver 1000mW continuous and undistorted power into in balanced mode. Such flexible design allows TAURUS MKII to match most modern top quality headphones in a perfect way.
