Begins from the pursuit of an extraordinary amplifier that can well match with modern top quality headphones, inspired by the soul of Rupert Neve's legendary design philosophy, bearing with modern simplism style appearance, TAURUS MKII is born with a perfect coalescence of classic and pop elements.
The smooth, rich and detailed voice of TAURUS MKII is a succession of AURALiC′s elegant and graceful aesthetic taste. Referring to Neve analog console′s circuit design, AURALiC invent the ORFEO Class-A output module and fit them into TAURUS MKII. The ORFEO module offers great driving ability by delivers 1000mW (600ohm) to 4500mW (32ohm) power into various loads; this allows TAURUS MKII to squeeze out every headphone′s capabilities, unfold the beauty of their unique sonic style.
Resorting to the ultra low noise input buffer tailored by AURALiC, TAURUS MKII has a wide dynamic range greater than 130dB while maintains the output noise less than 5uV. With such astonishing performance, TAURUS is able to capture the most tiny music expression coming from the source component.
The TAURUS MKII builds on the design of the original award-winning TAURUS, launched in 2010, by concentrating all surface-mounted components in an audio signal patch. It also increased the TAURUS′ EMI shielding, reducing noise from the input buffer to 0.8uV, less than half the level of the original. Additionally, AURALiC improved the input switch circuit to increase the isolation among different input channels, which boosts performance when the TAURUS MKII is connected to multiple sources.
Smoothed music expression, sophisticated circuit design and brilliant appearance; TAURUS MKII is another exemplary works designed by AURALiC.


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 600ohm in balanced mode. Such flexible design allows TAURUS MKII to match most modern top quality headphones in a perfect way

AURALiC's Taurus follows the excitement of their ARK MX+ converter. As a high-power headphone amp it drives HifiMan's toughest HE6 to perfection. Once again team AURALiC demonstrates a high level of circuit design know-how. Hats off!

Srajan Ebaen

... Sonically Auralic offers the sheer dynamism. The headphones in the test here breathed a maximum of Taurus much structure and an extremely sonorous foundation. With large calibers like the HiFiMAN HE-6 or Audez'e LCD-3 it sounded almost transcendental high resolution. The Auralic shines with powerful, focused, linear game and a super grippy yet silky bass that paves its way from the brain directly to the solar plexus.

Specificatii AURALiC Technology

AFN402â„¢ Material

Through long-term research and test, we find out that audio signal could easily be disturbed by electromagnetic interference and get distorted. Such distortion could lead to the lacking in the sense of natural liveliness and smoothness of the music replay. The protection from traditional aluminous or ironic cabinet to audio signal is very limited. Therefore, in the times of CD as the main music player, the tiny details in music could not be represented fully as a result of the limitation of electricity properties from recording media and replay equipments. Along with the gradual widespread of Hi-Rez format music, the characteristics of replay equipment, the abilities of discovering and reproducing tiny details of music in particular, became the bottleneck of the whole system′s development. Also, external electromagnetic interference, for the 1st time, turned out to be the heart of the matter.

In order to satisfy the needs of Hi-Rez format music replay, AURALiC researched and developed a kind of cabinet material named AFN402, which is an alloy of iron with certain portion of nickel, silicon and other rare metals. AFN402 could not only isolate external electromagnetic interference effectively and efficiently, but also restrain resonance. The isolation ability within audio frequency and above audio frequencies from AFN402 turned out to be 3 times and 10 times of that of traditional cabinet respectively.

Alireâ„¢ Resonance Damper

As is well known, Resonance could affect the phase of audio signal tremendously and could cause the instability to soundstage. As a result, resonance has always been one of the key directions for research in audio system. The electric current in conductor could cut external magnetic field under resonance and thus produce the induced current with specified frequency in conductor, which will make audio signal get distorted to a certain serious degree no less than that from electromagnetic interference.

In order to restrain vibrations, AURALIC researched and developed a new kind of material, Alire Resonance Damper, which was made by arranging and pressing multiple raw materials of diverse resonance frequency from layer to layer. Through sticking Alire to the inner side of cabinet so as to make the 'sandwich' structure, resonance could be effectively restrained and its resonance frequency could be changed. All the chassis of AURALiC series products are covered by Alire, which could exempt the products from both electromagnetic interference and vibration interference and ensure provide purist signal to the initial stage of music replaying.

Purer-Powerâ„¢ Solution

Power supply of audio equipment is one of the most key parts in influencing its electrical characteristics and sound representation. The aim of Purer-Power technology is to provide pure and stable power supply to audio-frequency circuit. It works as follows: the AC power from electrical network goes through AURALiC power purification module; then the purification module will strongly isolate common-mode and differential-mode interference from both within and outside audio frequencies frequency as high as 90dB; after that, the module will reshape the electrical circuit and remove DC current. To summarize, AURALiC power purification module could effectively prevent electrical circuit from being interfered by those current entering into system via power supply, by which means to ensure more stability of circuit and more purification of sound.

The purified electrical current enters into the primary transformer to get voltage changed. According to diverse situations and property needs, AURALiC has tailed-made the multiple standards of transformers series and set up the partnership with Plitron as its producer. With regards to those transformers designed for very specific needs, the workers are to adopt man-made method. Those transformers are made from the iron core of special specifications and unique wiring, which will definitely improve its effectiveness and lower its internal resistance as well as its vibration. Therefore, the transformer of such kind will work very quietly without impacting their surrounding electrical circuit.

DC supply circuit in purer-power technology has been designed on the simulate battery properties. It works like this: DC current goes into filtering circuits (which are made of a set of huge storage capacitors) and isolates efficiently the noise within and above the audio frequency; then the current goes into high speed, low noise, low impedance, multi-stage regulators; these regular circuits provide pure and stable current to audio frequency power supply. From the above description, we can see that DC supply circuit in Purer-Power provides lowest noise and highest stability. In the contrast, internal resistance of battery changes according to the residual amount of electricity and produce electrochemistry noise consequently. Therefore it is evident that DC supply circuit in purer-power technology owns better electrical characteristics.
