Auris Audio had gone “poisonous”May 21, 2015
Auris Audio from Serbia who'd landed with a bang last year had gone poisonous for a change. Incite the Paracelsus dictum that "poison is in everything, and no thing is without poison". The implied meaning must be that at the proper dose, a poison becomes medicine whereas medicine at the wrong dosage gets toxic. The new Auris Poison range promises the perfect dose of tube poison to heal, not make you sick. This smaller system with WIM speakers sounded really good!
Of course there also was this rather more upscale Titan Range rig anchored by Kharma speakers to introduce a very different and new look for Auris.
As did much valve gear in Munich, the Titan monos embraced the powerful KT150. Based on bang-for-the-buck whoa, I returned to the poisonous system shown here from the rear to drive home the external power supplies.
Here's a closer look at the lineup from the front. And a final glance at the central preamp. With Trafomatic Audio absent at this event, the Auris poison hung the Serbian flag most proud. So I signed up for a review of these compact but sonically potent black blocks.
