NEW ESOTERIC GRANDIOSO M1X AMPLIFIER

The new and upcoming Esoteric Grandioso M1X is the flagship monaural power amplifier and it will be available in April. The Esoteric Grandioso M1X monaural power amplifier is a complete revision of the conventional Grandioso M1 and adds a number of the latest circuit technologies, including the world's first super junction ESOTERIC SJ-BJT01 bipolar transistor which is only used by Esoteric. From dignified silence to burgeoning passion with Esoteric Grandioso M1X music is richly portrayed.

Highlights

  • Esoteric's original, world's first power amplifier element * Esoteric's bipolar transistor "ESOTERIC SJ-BJT01" is incorporated. An element that has both high withstand voltage and low on-resistance, flows smoothly not only at large currents but also small currents, and can naturally reproduce sensitive signals up to high-energy signals.
  • Power linearity according to the theoretical value from 300W at 8Ω load to 1,200W at 2Ω load.
  • Equipped with dedicated toroidal transformers in each of the voltage gain stage and the current gain stage.
  • The current gain stage is equipped with a large ESOTERIC custom toroidal transformer with a core size of over 3,000 VA.
  • A new custom capacitor with a large capacitance of 60,000uF is installed in the power supply section of the current gain stage.
  • In addition to the balanced and unbalanced input terminals, the circuit has a dedicated input terminal for the original current transfer method "ES -LINK Analogue".
  • The circuit ES -LINK Analogue is equipped with "IDM-01" (Integrated Discrete-Amplifier Module) developed with Grandioso C1X.
  • Audio signal control with FET elements not affected by mechanical contacts
  • A low-impedance product with a thickness of 105 μm, which is three times thicker than the conventional ones, is used for the copper foil of the power supply/amplifier board.
  • Buffer amplifier with the balanced input stage

Uncompromising construction
  • Hybrid structure chassis with main chassis and bottom chassis with different rigidity
  • A total of 3 transformer configurations equipped with an R core transformer dedicated to the control system
  • ESOTERIC custom unequal length heat sink fins
  • The semi-floating top panel that brings out the feeling of release of sound
  • ESOTERIC's unique pinpoint foot that combines the effect of spike foot and ease of handling
