Launched in 2006, the Tucana, Leema’s first audio component, soon established itself as a genuine reference amplifier, winning many prestigious awards. Now the Tucana II extends both the performance and features of the original, to set a new global standard for integrated amplifiers.
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 uncompromised audiophile quality.
