Representing a new generation of integrated amplifiers, Esoteric’s new F Series has been thoroughly invested with proven results gained in the development of their flagship Grandioso line of separate amplifiers.

With the goal of capturing all the inherent warmth and texture of music, not only were the outstanding expressive powers of the Grandioso line pursued, but also the utmost limits of audio performance were concentrated into a configuration offering excellent usability combined with an attractiveness that more than compensates for the limitations of their size.

F-05 was designed as a core component of this new range. Like the F-03A, its fully balanced preamplifier section was acquired from the Grandioso C1, and its high-powered amplifier modules were acquired directly from the Grandioso S1.

As first seen in Esoteric’s premier models, F-05 employs a complete dual-monaural configuration through all stages of amplification, from preamplifier inputs to the final stages of the power amplifier.
