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 players.

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.

Analog amplification circuitry inherited from Esoteric’s flagship Grandioso series for consistently superb sound quality. Aspiring to be superior examples of the integrated amplifier format. Invested with the finest materials and expertise in pursuit of the essence of amplifier design, while seeking uncommon sophistication and substance in the most basic format. Offering more versatile tone control capability than separates, while bringing out the full potential of the integrated amplifier by providing ample functionality and abundant expandability in its overall refinement.

A Fully Balanced Preamplifier
One result of the lavish attention given to the development of the F Series is the preamplifier’s fully balanced configuration, which derives from our highly esteemed C Series preamplifier models. Impervious to noise, it delivers pure and powerful signal amplification at ultra-low impedance.

Dual Monaural by Design
The one design feature of these amplifiers that most clearly reflects Grandioso thinking is their dual monaural configuration, which maintains complete left and right channel independence through all stages, from preamplifier to the power amplifier’s final stage. As Esoteric integrated amplifiers, the major investments made in circuit construction expertise and materials developed over the years yield excellent channel separation and a measure of sound quality that transcends the class.

Ultra-Low-Noise Logic Control
As a countermeasure against noise, all control lines have been electronically separated from the main body of the preamplifier with the use of isolator elements integrated into the front panel.

High-Precision Ball Bearing Control Knobs
Employing the same high-precision bearing mechanisms used in our Grandioso components, the F Series’ volume control knobs and selector switches provide exceptionally smooth operation with an analog feel free of any mechanical play. Sparing no cost, all panel knobs are also custom-machined from solid aluminum.

Dual Mono Phonostage Preamp
The dual mono phonostage preamp (MM/MC) features independent left and right channel power sources and independent circuits.

High-Quality Headphone Amplifier
The powerful headphone amp provides abundant output to effectively drive even difficult to power high-end high-impedance headphones
