Renaissance Audio Electronics
The Opus 2 Number 1
This is our VF faceplate showing a
when the amp is running. It displays all the amplifier
functions at a glance, including the internal temperature, system
voltage, and plate dissipation of the tubes.
A bar graph shows plate dissipation, while the dash on line 4 spins to
provide you with a visual
cue that all is well. There is an serial port at the back
of the amplifier, so that you can use any laptop to precisely see
what is going on inside of the Opus 2 at all times.
The Opus 2 allows user selection of the tube plate dissapation and
of the output tube voltage
(within the T-100 safe limits specified by KR-Audio)to allow for
precise matching to cabling and speakers. The 60W class A Opus 2 also
has an idle mode that reduces the plate dissipation of the
tubes to increase tube longevity,
reduce power consumption, and tube generated heat. The Renaissance
Audio Electronics Opus 2 Number 1 has a proprietary microprocessor
controlled gentle power up
algorithm to avoid cathode stripping and enhance the almost 10000 hour
tube life of the KR Audio T-100. This should assure a life time of
trouble free listening pleasure.
The Renaissance Audio Electronics
Opus 2 No 1 is built
with the finest components and techniques unique to Renaissance Audio
Electronics Inc., which give these amplifiers a uniquely perfect sonic
not available in any other tube amps that we have found.
