Description
 
The ONE.2 incorporates the most requested upgrades for the 2009 Virtue ONE, integrated into a the same economical and beautiful package. The 20k stepped attenuator has a wonderful feel and virtually no distortion whatsoever. What other $369 amplifier today includes such a stepped attentuator standard? An all-new soft-start circuit allows using any high-current battery, linear, or torroidal power supply up to 30v. Imagine the "classic" and critically acclaimed Virtue ONE/TWO with more presence, deeper bass, and even more detail. A second set of input capacitors are built into the board so that you can cut low frequencies to your main speakers with a single jumper on the volume POT pcb.

We've also made a few more tweaks for 2010. Subwoofer pop: gone. Noise floor: lower. Break-in: faster. Bass: ever so slightly better.

Please note that we highly recommend upgrading the standard power supply. High-current linear and battery supplies are especially amazing.

Here are some key features of the ONE.2:

  • High-power, reference-grade amplifier for any audio source
  • World-class engineering by Roger Sheker, Audience LLC and Michael Mardis
  • Max 30v, 87 wpc @ 4 ohms
  • 22,000 uF power capacitor
  • Soft-start circuit (new for 2010!)
  • VirtuCap input capacitors
  • Heatpipe thermal management
  • Propeller Post binding posts
  • Tellurium copper RCA jacks
  • Buffered mono subwoofer pre-out
  • Aluminum chasis with chrome
  • Available in five amazing colors

It's the best Jerry, the best! August 10, 2010
Reviewer: Alex G from Chicago, IL United States  
BUY THIS AMPLIFIER! You will not be disappointed.  I was looking for something in the $400 range for a simple, quality stereo amplifier - no surround sound etc. I don't have tons of experience with high end stereos like some of the people that post around here (I'm 23) so I don't have much to compare it to.  This little guy was basically the limit for me, I couldn't even afford to buy the upgraded power supply.  But you know what, the little guy kicks some serious tail.  I'm blown away every time I listen to it.  I'm literally hearing detail in songs I never heard before - my new hobby is finding music that I haven't listened to in a while and relistening to it through the One.2.  With some songs it's like I'm listening for the first time. Seriously, I don't know much, but I know this - if you're on the fence, buy this thing because it is a steal.  I feel like it justifies a much higher price (but I'm grateful because I'm broke).  All I can say is thanks guys, I'm blown.
