Jeff Rowland Continuum S2 Integrated Amplifier

Featuring enhanced sonic performance and flexibility, the new Rowland Continuum Series 2 integrated amplifier delivers stunning dynamic realism and expressive refinement through advanced topologies. Continuum S2 integrates the new Capri S2 preamplification circuit, input/output, and control features with an innovative 400 watt power amplification stage into a single chassis.

The amplifier delivers the trademark Rowland musicality, resolution, and unfailing authority to the most refined audio environments: challenge Continuum S2 to the extreme dynamics of high-resolution digital sources and the power requirements of large bi-wired speakers. Apply it to the complex loads of electrostatic panels in analog rigs. Admire its exceptional realism driving single-wired studio monitors in a sophisticated multi-media system.

The elegance of Continuum S2’s ergonomic console emerges from a solid block of aircraft-grade aluminum. Discover the impressive complement of standard input/output interfaces. Enhance its flexibility through the optional DAC card, or its fully redesigned phono stage.

" There are two contrasting forces at work in audio today, and Jeff Rowland integrated is just about perfect for both. On one side, we have the upgrader, who is beginning to return to the audio fold after a decade and a half's absence. They have rediscovered that music isn't just an accompaniment to an early morning jog, and are busy rising through the audiophile ranks. On the other, we have the downshifter, who has spent decades at the audiophile extreme and wants something that delivers the goods without the space and expense of full-blown system. Both of these types of listener are usually dealing with smaller space for a listening room. This means less room, but does not mean compromise. All of which points to the Jeff Rowland Continuum S2. To say this comes highly recommended is putting it mildly - this is the kind of amplifier I could happily live with and never feel the need to upgrade again!
