A Super Condition pair of Canary Audio Reference Two Mono blocks. These have only been pampered in our Showroom. Very light use, so its like getting an almost factory fresh pair, but with substantial savings.
The Reference Two is quite heavy (est. 400 lb. on the pallet) so the original shipping cartons will be securely palletized and shipped to you via motor freight, we have super discounted rates with our shipper so shipping anywhere in the US is negligible.
The Reference two is US120V Voltage and changing voltage on these is not easy, for international buyers a very suitable step down / isolation transformer can be supplied for a small fee.
If you want to know more about this item or any of the other cool audio gear we list on Audiogon, call our world-class showroom in Southern California at 619-440-8237 and ask for our audio/electronics expert-in-residence, Peter.
We have extensive experience integrating the elements of sophisticated audio systems. We build complete systems from the ground up, and have in-depth working knowledge not only of the pre-amps, amps, and power supplies that support our loudspeakers but of the component synergy that makes the difference between good and great. At PBN, "great" is our everyday standard.

Mono Blocks Power Amplifier The Best of the Best:
Canary Audio is proud to introduce the all new Reference Two Mono Block amplifier, the first of a whole new series of high end reference audio products. This amplifier is the result of over 15 years of experience. Built to Withstand the Power of Music:
The REFERENCE TWO is a mono blocks amplifier with the use or sixteen (eight matched pairs) 300B triode tubes in a push pull parallel circuit. Like all of our other amplifiers, only the highest quality parts and components are used. The oversize custom wound power and output transformers are specially designed to extend the bass and highs. Each of the transformers is housed in a metal can filled with epoxy. Two independent chokes are employed for rectifier filtering on each channel. Just as important, the military grade epoxy circuit boards are designed to minimize component interaction. In addition to that, each of the 300B triode tube has a separate bias adjustment device mounted on the rear panel for convenient biasing. The World Most Powerful 300B amplifier:
Generating power from eight pieces / four matched pairs of 300B tubes per channel. Conservatively rated with an output voltage of 80 watts RMS. The Reference Two mono blocks amplifier is capable to deliver high power wattages and still maintains the clarity and delicacy of real music. Anyone who listens to them never feels the need for more wattage, all they want to do is put on more music. Perhaps the Reference Two is the most powerful 300B amplifier in the world.Special Features: Newly designed high voltage power supply.The input circuit has been redesigned to be faster and more dynamic.Balance Input is available for balanced connection.Exclusive machined Delrin 300B tube sockets with gold plated pin receptacles.Specially designed power meter with a custom backlite LED display.Image Gallery Specifications
