Description

The Auris Nirvana 2 is one of those headphone amps that performs great with every single headphone you throw at it, from the easiest driving – dynamic to the hardest, planar magnetic, and the other way round. The range of supported headphone impedances is huge – from 32 to 600 Ohm!

Auris Nirvana 2 Information:

  • Stylish, full-sized headphone amplifier, designed in a single-ended technology with a 6,5W pure class A per channel
  • Enables driving a wide range of headphones, from easy driving dynamics to planar magnetic ones
  • Usage of iconic EL34 tubes, known for deep and tight bass, sweet mids and extended and detailed highs
  • Robust and durable wood-and-leather-chassis protects against vibrations

Sound

Nirvana proves that bass performance from headphones can match the quality and the number of bass-via-massive-woofers. No loss of details, perfect clarity, precision and airiness with all the headphones plugged into it. In the matter of sound, Nirvana represents a blend of Auris Ha2 and Headonia amplifier, in the way that it takes the best of both. Balanced mode reveals many hidden layers of music and the reproduction becomes slightly more detailed.
It sounds like you’re in heaven with a dynamic, wide and very well layered sound with a good amount of warmth and tube smoothness. The Nirvana gets sound (and looks) just right and it simply is impossible not to like.

Technology

In technological terms, Nirvana qualities are reflected in:

  • Carefully selected and pre-tested tubes – should last for 10.000 hours. It is powered by iconic EL34 by Electro Harmonix, a most common pentode found in British amplifiers. The drive tube is ECC82 by Tung-Sol, popular in the audio world as a low-noise tube for most popular amplifiers circuits.
  • Transformers – manually wound on double C core and manufactured in-house in compliance with strictly defined requirements.
  • High-quality components – branded Mundorf, Rubicon, Wima etc…
