Used Auralic Taurus MK II Solid State Headphone Amplifier
7/10 condition - Original Box, manual, etc.
We are selling this on consignment for a great customer (we have so many :) ). It has some slight cosmetic blemishes on the top of the unit, and the screen printed word "power" below the power button has a few letters worn off from being cleaned over the years. Functionally, it is perfect and one of the best solid state headphone amps on the market. Priced to sell quickly. Photos of the actual Taurus MKII are below.
"I'll cut right to the chase here and give you a spoiler: the AURALiC TAURUS MKII is among the absolute best headphone amplifiers I've ever heard." - Inner Fidelity

Reviews: InnerFidelity | The Absolute Sound | SixMoons | TONE Audio | Computer Audiophile | Digital Audio Review | CNet
"The key to the Taurus’ excellence is balance. This amplifier delivers the full range of sound at a high level of quality. It offers enough low-frequency drive to keep the biggest bassheads happy, with mids that are silky smooth (though not embellished) and with a high-frequency response that is extended and detailed but that never crosses into harsh, strained territory." - TONE Audio
"Considering the sound and build-quality on offer, I think AURALiC’s Taurus MKII not only represents an impressive sonic and technical achievement, but also qualifies (dare I say it?) as a bit of a bargain. Enthusiastically recommended." - The Absolute Sound
