There will be no additional production in 2011.
The ONE.2 "classic" is the same amplifier as the ONE.2 without the extra set of input caps for bass management and stepped attenuator. These units are in limited supply, but in stock now.
New and improved for 2010!
In 2009, the Virtue ONE was voted "Best Value Product of the Year" by StereoMojo and critically acclaimed in Positive Feedback, 6Moons, TNT, StereoTimes, Soundstage, and others. The ONE "classic" could be the best sounding and well-made amplifier ever made for the money.
But we couldn't leave good enough alone.
Customers figured out quickly that this was a different kind of T-Amp and had bass and headroom brought out the full potential of the platform. As such, we offered 3 power supply options and consensus was that more power was better. But it didn't work on batteries because the high current fused the switch. So we went to work.
The 2010 ONE "classic" is new and improved in many ways. The all-new soft-start circuit allows using any high-current battery, linear, or torroidal power supply up to 30v. These supplies bring even more presence, deeper bass, and detail. There are some other tweaks too. Subwoofer pop: gone. Noise floor: lower. Break-in: faster. Bass: ever so slightly better.
So just hook up your iPod, XM/Sirius Radio, CD-player, TV, or other RCA input source, and attach your favorite speakers. Sit back, and experience music like you've never heard before.
