Jeff Rowland Capri S2 Preamplifier + DAC

The Capri S2 features an impressive complement of standard input/output interfaces; greatly enhanced flexibility through its optional DAC card or phono option; and the Rowland trademark prismatic platinum faceplate beautifully integrated into a non-resonant chassis milled from a solid block of aluminum.

The new Series II model can be ordered with an inbuilt DAC to give true input flexibility across both analog and digital inputs. 99.5dB gain range in 199 equal steps. Total overall gain of 14dB & Frequency Response 10Hz – 350kHz

With an output impedance of only 80 Ohms balanced and 40 Ohms single ended, Capri S2 drives any amplifier with confidence. Whether serving a single-ended triode amplifier in a vinyl rig, or controlling a quartet of solid-state Rowland M525 monoblocks with a 192 kHz digital source, or at the nexus of a home theater setup, the Capri S2 preamplifier delivers the trademark Rowland musicality, resolution, and consistent authority.
