Representing the next generation in a proud lineage of audio excellence, the C-02X Stereo Linestage Preamplifier and its matching Stereo Power Amplifier S-02 feature state-of-the-art circuitry in a discrete dual mono configuration that dramatically conveys all the power and energy of music. Assembled one at a time in ESOTERIS’s Tokyo factory and incorporating all the knowledge and technology of the flagship Grandioso line, these two new models accentuate the refined qualities of audio reproduction with expert draftsmanship and handmade precision.
The preamplifier is a crucial component that determines the ‘sound’ of an audio system, and represents the passion and commitment of its makers. As the crowning achievement of the Esoteric Sound, the Grandioso C1 opened new horizons for ‘Made in Japan’ preamplifiers. Now, this expressive power gives birth to the next-generation C-02X; a stereo preamplifier created to transcend the concept of high fidelity and resonate with the refined sensibilities of engineers and musicians alike.
