DetailsHydra is an intelligent stereo slave amplifier having exactly the same topology as Tucana. Hydra II may be used in a bi-amp stereo system or may be used to drive the surround channels in a 5.1 or 7.1 home cinema system. It may also be used in a bi-amp stereo or multi-channel system. Input selection and volume controls track the system settings via LIPS commands from Tucana.
