Canor Virtus I2

Integrated Tube Amplifier

Premium Line Canor Virtus I2 Canor Virtus I2 Canor Virtus I2

The Virtus I2 is a new-generation tube amplifier that utilizes KT88 high-power tubes and features an entirely new topology.
The goal of its development was to enhance the superior sound quality of the previous model version. This amplifier runs in a pure class A with an auto-bias function, as well as cathode feedback.

The "Virtus" was a specific virtue in Ancient Rome and it carries connotations of valour, manliness, excellence, courage, character, and worth, perceived as masculine strengths.


Operates in a pure class A with an auto-bias
Instant switching between a triode and ultra-linear modes
Possibility to create a monoblock setup of two units.

Product features

  • an integrated tube amplifier operating in class A, providing an output power of 2 x 40 W
  • KT88 high-power tubes with autobias with a cathode feedback
  • an option to switch between triode and ultra-linear mode instantly
  • PCB’s utilize our premium CMT ™ technology
  • perfect channel separation using a relay attenuator that features individual blocks for each channel. The gain control is in increments of 1 dB and attenuates up to 63 dB
  • the independently powered control part
  • capacitors with high capacitance in the filter provide energy for precise and well-defined bass
  • the signal path exclusively contains high-quality polypropylene capacitors
  • precise selection and pairing of the tubes meeting above-average parameters
  • the synchronous control option allows the use of two amplifiers in a monoblock mode without the need for an extra preamplifier. This Master/Slave mode has an output power of 80 W per channel
