The VAS Citation-Two tube mono block power amplifier is a Harmon/Kardon Citation II design. This classic is reborn in with top-of-the-line components, hand wiring and state-of-the-art transformer technology. It offers a compact size, yet is powerful enough drive almost any speaker. It is available in 2 variants: EL34 for warm, smooth music & KT88 for power. Reviewers wrote of the original: "The realism of the virtually distortion-free music was nothing less than startling. Our initial amazement gave way to an easy, relaxed enjoyment that was sustained for hours without a trace of that tension known as listening fatigue." "There is solidity, combined with a total ease and lack of irritation that sets this amplifier apart from most others." "There were a variety of interesting and outstanding Cayin products in the room including the A-88T integrated amplifier, the 265A 40 Watt Class A integrated and VAS Citation 2 mono-bloc amplifiers. These products offer great sound at unbelievably affordable prices, while the Citation-2 monos take retro-cred to new levels of audiophile drool-worthiness. They looked great - they sounded even better. Look for some really exciting products from Cayin and VAS, representing stunning value for the audiophile. The best of vintage sound combined with modern construction and componentry ..." - Richard Foster, Hi-Fi+, Issue 42
