  • 2 X 120 watts into 8ohm
  • Fully balanced preamplifier
  • Dual monaural amplifier design
  • Esoteric QVCS volume control system
  • Ultra-low noise logic control
  • ball bearing control knobs
  • Dual mono phono preamp
  • High-Quality headphone amplifier
  • 3 band tone control
  • Large capacity transformer
  • 34 amperes of instantaneous peak power
  • Organic EL display (Normal / Large font).
  • Two speaker terminal systems (A / B / A+B).
  • Independently adjustable input gains (±18dB; 0.5dB steps).
  • L/R channel balance.
  • Individually selectable phase inversion for each source.
  • AV through output (volume bypass) ensures seamless coexistence with AV systems.
  • Preamp output jacks (XLR & RCA) can be switched between PRE Out and REC Out.
  • aluminium body remote controller can also be used to operate Esoteric’s SACD players.
