Esoteric Grandioso M1X Monblock Amplifiers – Made in Japan

$55,000.00 inc. GST

SKU: M1 “GRANDIOSO” Pair Category: Brand:


In designing the Esoteric Grandioso M1X, ESOTERIC’s goal was to push the outer limits of what a power amplifier could be. The key to the overwhelming power and rich sound quality of the M1X amplifier is a custom-built ultra-large toroidal core transformer with a 3057VA core size and a mass of approximately 18 kg. This helps produce breathtaking speaker-driving power up to 1200w (@2ohm) with an S/N ratio of 122dB at the input stage, a truly remarkable achievement. utilizing high-quality components throughout and encased in ESOTERIC’s now-famous battleship grade aluminium chassis, the M1 is the epitome of monoblock amplifier design.

Esoteric Grandioso M1X Mono Block Amplifier Features:

  • The world’s first* bipolar transistor with a high-current amplification factor and low on-resistance super junction, the ESOTERIC SJ-BJT01 for power amplifier element
  • Toroidal-core transformers exclusive for both voltage amplification and current amplification stages
  • Over-sized ESOTERIC’s custom-designed toroidal-core transformers with over 3,000VA of core-size for the current amplification stage
  • New custom-designed capacitor with as high as 60,000uF capacity for the power supply section of the current amplification stage
  • ES-LINK Analog input, a unique current transmission method, in addition to the conventional balanced and unbalanced inputs
  • IDM-01 (Integrated Discrete-Amplifier Module) designed for the Grandioso C1X applied to the ES-LINK Analog circuit
  • Audio signal control with FET elements that are not affected by mechanical contacts
  • Copper foil for conductive patterns on the power supply and amplifier printed circuit boards
  • Balanced-design buffer amplifier circuit on the input stage
