Aesthetix
Aesthetix president and designer Jim White began his pursuit of the ultimate preamplifier designs over 10 years ago.

Jim introduced his Jupiter Series of preamps in 1994. The Io phono stage and Callisto line stage became industry benchmarks, garnering recognition from The Absolute Sound magazine with a Golden Ear Award for the Io and HP Editorís Choice for the Callisto Signature with dual power supplies. These incredible preamps use between 16 and 32 tubes each and in their ultimate configuration, create a six chassis 270 lb. component preamp.

Jim has now utilized his knowledge and experience to create the Aesthetix Saturn series: Rhea phono stage, Calypso line stage and Janus preamp. As you will see and hear, the Saturn series combines the sonic excellence of the Jupiter preamps in single chassis, beautifully styled, remote controlled components that elevate the performance of all high end music and home cinema audio systems.

AESTHETIX STEREO POWER AMPLIFIER
Janus Aesthetix Atlas Power Amplifier
Zero global feedback, fully differential amplifier with complementary balanced bridge design for open sound. Tube gain stage using one 6SN7 tube per channel provides harmonic accuracy and soundstage layering. Stereo amplifier: 200 watts per channel into 8 ohms; 400 watts per channel into 4 ohms Mono amplifier: 300 watts per channel into 8 ohms; 600 watts per channel into 4 ohms. Amplifier has a built-in high-pass crossover: 6 dB / octave, 16 settings from 40 Hz to 200 Hz in approximate 10 Hz increments. Single-ended and balanced inputs provide extended compatibility. Direct input bypasses all crossovers and switching for ultimate purity.
