    Jeff Rowland Continuum S2 Integrated review by Roy Gregory at TheAudioBeat.com...

    Jeff Rowland Design Group Continuum S2 Integrated Amplifier - The Audio Beat - www.TheAudioBeat.com

    Very interesting read. This seems like quite an accomplished integrated. You can also get DAC and phono modules added as well for a true one-box solution. The majority of the review is focused on the integrated amp but he does spend a considerable time going over his impressions of the add-on modules. Highly recommended for anyone considering an integrated and even those who are not. Seems like Class D has come a long way, and, Roy Gregory gives a thoroughly positive review of a Class D amp for the first time with Continuum S2.

    Nice gear and article. I enjoyed the video due to being a Toolmaker / Machine Designer for 25 years in my last profession. I used to machine similar parts out of solid chunks but not for audio except for when I worked at a shop building the original Versa Dynamics Turntables.

    Anybody other than Roy heard the Continuum S2? Lars of Raidho is using this for demos, so it should be respectable.

    Re: Jeff Rowland Continuum S2 Integrated review by Roy Gregory at TheAudioBeat.com...

    I just did a search for "reviews" on the Rowland Knowledge Base:

    Jeff Rowland :: Current Product Reviews

    This far, for Continuum S2, the only review listed is Roy Gregory's article on TheAudioBeat

    I do not own Continuum S2, but I listened to it at RMAF 2013 several hours over the three days of the show... I was honestly impressed by the musical involvement that it generated... As much as its predecessor (Continuum 500) left me unenthusiastic because of a slight rough edge to the C500 presentation and a somewhat two-dimensionality of the stage/images, the sound of S2 was utterly delightful, particularly on the last day... By Sunday the machine had been making music for about a week or so since it emerged from the assembly floor... I wonder how a CS2 with a good 1K hours of music on it would sound.

    Guido,

    Useful information on the S2, thanks for sharing. Given you knowledge and first hand experience with Rowland gear how close would you rank the S2 in comparison to the 625 amp (or others) in the Rowland line?

    Re: Jeff Rowland Continuum S2 Integrated review by Roy Gregory at TheAudioBeat.com...

    I have had an S2 since last Monday. I am very impressed with it. It really plays music. The last time I spent anytime with Rowland gear I was not impressed. That was 10 years ago or so.

    At first the S2 was a little lean but after a couple days it balanced out and if anything is a touch warm. But after 3 days - who knows how it will be next week.

    It seems like a great value so far. It has the "tap your toe" music involvement.

    Re: Jeff Rowland Continuum S2 Integrated review by Roy Gregory at TheAudioBeat.com...

    I'm pretty sure this integrated was at RMAF a few months ago. I spoke with Jeff Rowland at the show. He was very excited about his new products - including this integrated. Really nice guy.

    Jock...congrats! Did you get the S2 with the DAC and phono modules on board? If yes (for either or both) how would you characterize their performance?

    I did get the phono board. I have no idea how it sounds. I don't have a record player. I figured I would get it because you just never know.

    Re: Jeff Rowland Continuum S2 Integrated review by Roy Gregory at TheAudioBeat.com...

    I got the opportunity to audition the Jeff Rowland Continuum S2 recently and I thought very highly of it. It is quite an advance over its predecessor the C-500 which I admired for its hi-fi abilities (particularly bass control and sound-stage) but could not love because whilst it nicely joined Hi-Fi dots it lacked warmth and the ability to communicate emotional soul which is delicately woven into great music.


    I read Roy Gregory’s review and I was amazed that he did not mention the greatest attribute of the Continuum S2 – the attribute which actually sets it apart from many of its rivals and makes this one of the best integrated amplifiers I’ve heard. So let me fill you in on the Gregory GAP – that attribute is blackness. The S2 provides a stunningly black backdrop for the music to reside. Partner the S2 with a quiet speaker like the Raidho C-1.1 (or better if the funds allow) and enjoy musical reproduction few systems south of $50k can provide.

    Re: Jeff Rowland Continuum S2 Integrated review by Roy Gregory at TheAudioBeat.com...

    Hi Tim,,

    at RMAF 2013 I listened to Continuum S2 + Aeris DAC + Cardas Clear/Beyond wires driving Raidho D1 speakers in the Rowland room. The Nordost suite instead was showing M625 + Corus + Aeris driving Audio Physics speakers through Valhalla 2 wires... Both systems were wonderfully musical and resolving in their own way.

    Yet, as the amps are so different -- integrated vs stereo -- and their complement of electronics, speakers, and wires largely different as well, it is difficult to isolate the effect of the amplification section from the whole.

    One should rather look at the applicability of the two devices... CS2 yields obvious functional integration with its combination of integrated amp plus phono/DAC, while M625 lends itself to greater system flexibility, having amongst other things, two sets of binding posts for driving biwirable speakers, versus the single pair of output connectors of CS2.

    As for an audible comparison with M825 and M925... CS2/M625 serve a fractional pricepoint from M925/M825... with predictable audible differences.

    Re: Jeff Rowland Continuum S2 Integrated review by Roy Gregory at TheAudioBeat.com...

    Just did a comparison between the S2 after a week of burn in and the D'Agostino preamp and Dag power amps.

    No the S2 isn't better. In any way really. BUT........ For $9500 vs $90,000ish. The better value hands down is the S2. I know - how can you compare the two. You can't. But it's the two systems I can easily compare. Sorry.

    The S2s don't leave you wanting more. You don't feel lacking. Yes the Dags are better, but you know, I can't say I didn't get into the music any different with either. Any really, is there anything else?

    My congrats to Rowland. We'll done......

    Yes

    I haven't heard either. I have the phono but nothing to feed it.

    You can have one or the other. It goes into input 1.

    Re: Jeff Rowland Continuum S2 Integrated review by Roy Gregory at TheAudioBeat.com...

    personally I find that if you buy the S2, you have to buy both the DAC and the phono stage, because they are brilliant... very close to world class.. specially the DAC is really great sounding.. at Raidho we have bought 2 pcs. for demos.. the S2 will for sure out compete a lot of pre-power combos

    So the DAC is a $450 option and the phono is a $350 optional module. It's interesting your take on the DAC because Roy Gregory, while agreeing with you that it punches well above it's weight, he thinks it still lacks in certain areas. Here are some his comments on the DAC below:

    The DAC option is frighteningly effective. Super quick and clean, it will sound rather thin and overly polished on first installation, but run a signal through it for a week and it soon starts to fill out and settle down. Clarity and purpose are its strong suits, performance traits that dovetail perfectly with the emphatic dynamics and solid sense of presence generated by the CEC TL 3N transport. This was a combination that performed well beyond its price point...

    In absolute terms the Rowland DAC card does flatten the depth perspective and introduce an overall smoothing of textures. Even running from the CEC transport it never had the textural finesse or overall sense of spatial coherence, that sense of the air not just between but surrounding the instruments, that you get from a player like the Wadia S7i -- but then it doesn’t do the same damage to your bank balance of a player like the Wadia. The Wadia is more three-dimensional in terms of both the images and the overall acoustic, and it offers a broader and more natural range of tonal colors. But that is to rather miss the point. The S7i might well be considered a natural partner for the Continuum S2, as might Rowland’s own Aeris DAC, but both come at a heavy price. The internal DAC option offers both a viable stop-gap solution -- one that will easily outperform equivalently priced freestanding units -- or a step up in performance for a secondary source. In either role, its crisp, clean, dynamic and purposeful delivery, full of drive and energy, will make it welcome.

    As well as the CEC, I found myself using the Naim UnitiServe for much of the review period. This UPnP network server solution, connected via its own S/PDIF output rather than a separate streamer, seemed like the natural partner for the no-nonsense approach of the Continuum S2. Its mellow, relaxed sound and typical Naim sense of musical pace offered the perfect source for the internal DAC’s positive sense of musical purpose. Sure, if I hooked up the dCS Vivaldi it was only too obvious what I was missing, but for general musical enjoyment and non-critical listening this iPad-driven source component/library was ideal -- and I can see the internal DAC card fitting right into this role.
    On the phono stage, he wholeheartedly agrees that eventhough it's only a $350 optional module, it's performance comes close to delivering truly high end sonics. Here are some of his comments:

    It would be easy to assume that, in much the same way that the DAC is an ideal stepping stone or secondary source solution, the internal phono option is best considered a stop-gap, unlikely to satisfy those looking for the last word in vinyl replay. In practice it’s a lot better than that, offering a step up in performance over the DAC card and in many cases I suspect that it will be as much phono stage as many listeners will want and a better phono stage than they’ve ever had. In many respects that should come as no great surprise; from standalone devices like the Michell Iso onwards, simple but carefully executed IC-based phono stages have demonstrated just how capable and cost effective they can be. Shackle this one to the kind of power supply and electrical infrastructure that go with the Continuum internals and the results are exceptional given the price...

    The challenge for any high-resolution phono stage is giving access to the music buried in those vinyl grooves without letting the storage medium and its shortcomings intrude. I can’t say that the Continuum S2’s phono cards are particularly kind to surface noise -- they’re too quick and extended for that -- but they do have the happy knack of reproducing clicks and pops in a completely different plane to the music...

    The true vinyl devotee will probably want more facilities and more performance than the Continuum S2 phono cards deliver. Greater tonal differentiation and insight would be nice, as would switchable EQ curves -- but at what price? I compared the internal boards to several of the standalone units I have in-house and they consistently delivered a quicker, cleaner sound with far greater poise and structural clarity than the external options -- and at a lower cost too. These are no afterthought or make-weight option, but a genuinely capable vinyl replay solution. For listeners who want continued access to an existing vinyl collection, even as they transition to or reinforce a greater reliance on digital media, they’ll be a godsend -- as well as being a more than capable answer for the more dedicated vinyl listener while he waits until his bank balance recovers enough (after buying the S2 and/or a turntable, 'arm and cartridge) to afford the standalone phono stage of his dreams. Don’t overlook the Continuum S2’s phono stage on the basis of price; you could be very pleasantly surprised.

    I thought it was either or but maybe you can do both?????

    Looking inside it def looks like the phono could be RCA 2 instead of RCA 1 ?????

    I have to agree that the DAC card is really incredible. I am just loving my S2, and the DAC is an incredible value. I have had some really good DACs in the system, and this one easily holds its own. I think it is a no-brainer for $450, and actually makes the unit that much more special.

    Could you share some system details and in particular what speakers the S2 is driving.

    Thanks for the warm welcome guys. I am running a set of Soundlab ESLs with the S2...and it is doing quite well. JRDG does a great preamp-and having that teamed with the DAC card and the Pascal class D modules just makes for a great integrated.

    Re: Jeff Rowland Continuum S2 Integrated review by Roy Gregory at TheAudioBeat.com...

    Hi again Bk12,

    I could not find any specification online on what the idle power consumption is of the Jeff Rowland Continuum S2. Does the manual that comes with the unit specify? Based on my experience of the JR Continuum C-500 (the predecessor to the S2), this is one integrated amplifer you should not switch off. Do you have any comments / observations on the S2's performance cold vs. say 24 hours on?

    Thank you!

    Ralph

    I didn't get an owners manual with my S2.

    They have a Knowledge Base set up on their website and that sort of is the manual.

    Hi Ralph, I have just requested info on Continuum S2 idle power consumption from the factory... I will post here as soon as I receive the information.

    Yes, Continuum S2 can be left on, unless there is a danger of electric storms or power anomalies on the grid.

    On the subject of the CS2 manual... It is not yet on the Rowland site... But I should be receiving a draft copy shortly. If anyone needs it, please send me a PM.

    Thanks so much Guido. I did search the knowledgebase and the Rowland site before asking. Odd they shipping S2's without manuals. The Continuum C-500 certainly did ship with a manual, I know this because I had one in my system for a while.

    Does Jeff recommend the S2 be left on permanently? I am aware this is the case with some of the pre-amplifiers and I am further aware that if you switch off some models you are in for a very very long wait before the amplifier reaches optimal performance. Can you comment on that?

    Thank you!

    Re: Jeff Rowland Continuum S2 Integrated review by Roy Gregory at TheAudioBeat.com...

    Hi Ralph, the overall recommendation from Jeff is to leave all current Rowland amps including Continuum S2, linestages, and Aeris powered on continuously to optimize sonic/musical performance. He always reminds us that in case of possible power disruptions, equipment should be turned off.

    The good news is that unlike the old ICEpower-based amps, the current crop of Rowland amps is also quite pleasing when just turned on... My own experience with M925 is that it continues to blossom further for about 24 hours of amplifying a signal, until it reaches complete stability.

    If you leave it idling overnight, it will still sound quite good in the morning, and will achieve peak performance again in 90 to 120 minutes.

    Admittedly, I am somewhat more anally retentive than some, when it comes to break-in and warm-up recommendations *grins!*


    I have no direct experience with Continuum S2, but I suspect that behavior may be similar.

    Re: Jeff Rowland Continuum S2 Integrated review by Roy Gregory at TheAudioBeat.com...

    Hi Ralph,

    It looks like this has been answered, but I can confirm that I leave mine on and it seems to suit things just fine. This thing draws very little power at idle, and it is shockingly efficient. I am powering with a PurePower unit that shows draw, and this thing barely gets over 10% usage, even when playing at high levels. I haven't tried to leave mine cold and compare the sound there-it is just so easy to leave on. I can't recommend this unit enough, truly remarkable!

    Greetings Guido,

    Did you get a reply from Jeff on power consumption (unit on but in idle state) for the Continuum S2?

    Anyone compared a Continuum S2 directly or indirectly vs a Devialet? I'm currently using a D170 with my Raidho C-1.1s and would like to give an S2 a try. Particularly interested in how the DAC option compares with the Dev (which is rather good in that respect).

    Indirectly I have.

    I found the sonic signature (tonality) between the two very similar with advantage to the S2 in definition and depth of bass [Devialet was no slouch in this department though].

    I am keenly awaiting for Mikes report on his audition of the S2. I would quite like to simplify my system and the S2 is a leading contender in the integrated amplifier department to replace my Gryphon Diablo.

    There is a reported 1000 hour break in. But I'm excited to hear the famous combo in my home.

    Mike - do you think the S2 is a match for your Raidho D3s? It seems a little, err, asymmetric in terms of component values! It's a great recommendation if so though, and I really look forward to trying the S2 with my C-1.1s.

    The S2 is very very good. It matches up great w Raidho. Today I've listened to the S2 on the X1s and D3s. Both were great!

    It's a great value.
