ESOTERIC's new S-03 stereo power amplifier carries on the refinement of the 02 series' superb quality of musical reproduction, which stand as a Grandioso legacy. Their minimalist approach to the consummate purity of sound returns to the vey source of audio component design to give birth to a rich new range of musical experience. Hand-assembled one-by-one in ESOTERIC's Tokyo factory, each unit combines the most advanced techonologies wiht an unprecedented level of draftsmanship to give life to a preeminent philosophy of sound appreciation, from which a timeless new standard is born.

The indescribable feeling of spaciousness that comes when sound is unleashed -and the sense that the music you're hearing is truly live- can only be generated by amplifiers that offer abundant power to properly drive the loudspeakers. Esoteric's amplifiers use the finest components and massive power supplies to achieve the high output power this demands. The new S-03 Power Amplifier extends the legacy of Esoteric's premier Grandiose M1, setting free every nuance of sound, and imparting to music all the vibrancy and richness of life.

Loudspeaker impedance can vary widely depending on the frequencies being reproduced. The fast attack of deep bass imposes demanding loads on an amplifier, requiring not only continuous high power output, but also repeated bursts of peak power. Unless the amplifier's power supply is capable of consistently meeting these demands, musical dynamics will be compromised. The S-03's generous power supply capacity enables this nominally rated 145W into 8 ohms amplifier to deliver an impressive 580W into 2 ohms - a testament to the linearity of a power supply that faithfully reproduces the full spectrum of sound dynamics at all volume levels.
