F-05 Integrated Amplifier

SKU: F-05 Category:


Power and Dynamic Range That Stand Out

The F-05 was designed as a core component of Esoteric’s new F Series of Integrated
Amplifiers. 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, the F-05 employs a complete dual-monaural
configuration through all stages of amplification, from preamplifier inputs to the final stages
of the power amplifier.
Highly recommended for those who value the exhilarating feel of music’s rich expression, the
F-05 provides the power to dynamically open any sound stage, and deliver exceptional levels
of performance when used in combination with any of Esoteric’s line of state-of-the art digital

F-Series Philosophy: Basic and Complete

Representing a new generation of integrated amplifiers, Esoteric’s new F Series has been
thoroughly invested with proven results gained in the development of our 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, the
utmost limits of audio performance were also concentrated into an integrated configuration
that offers excellent usability combined with an attractiveness that more than compensates for
the limitations of their size. Basic and Complete. With sights set on creating a unique
presence in the category, the Esoteric F Series is born.
