Use of High Grade Components
uncompromising pursuit of superior sound quality, ESOTERIC uses nothing
but the highest grade components including custom-designed power supply
capacitors and machined gold-plated RCA terminals. The two large
selector knobs on the front panel feature a ball-bearing structure based
on the VRDS drive mechanism, providing a beautifully smooth analog feel
without any wobble. Knobs are sculpted from solid aluminum for a truly
refined, high-end look and feel.
