New Esoteric Class A and A/B Integrateds

Recommended Posts

Full details are yet to be translated, but I'm excited about the announcement of two new integrateds from Esoteric. 

 

F-03A is Pure Class A 30w

F-05 is Class A/B 120w

 

Both will include a 3-band defeatable tone control, and what appears to be a phono stage (may be optional) and an optional dac board. They have fully balanced dual-mono pre-amp sections.

 

Full specs will be posted here when available: http://www.krispyaudio.com.au/categories/Amplifiers/Integrated-Amplifiers/

trends are going back to the old-school. 

all in one unit integrated; pre/power, dac and phono, and tone controls, the way japanese integrateds were for years!

wives have won the war over too many separate boxes, cables and racks.  :P

Awesome. I'm all for simplicity and flexibility and not buying a bunch of cables and racks these days...

So the tone control is defeatable... this implies there is a risk that they may not be defeated.

I prefer conquerable tone controls.

Complete with a phono stage with a choice of MC or MM. Very convenient!!

I expect the build quality will be usual Esoteric over-engineered and bulletproof.

The next question is what do they sound like???

Very true.

Must say I do have a soft spot for the small class A amps though, could be pretty special.

Midrange tone control --- harking back to the Sansui AU- series circa 1975 (AU-20000)
