Aesthetix president and designer Jim White began his pursuit of the ultimate preamplifier designs 20 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 Editor’s Choice for the Callisto Signature with dual power supplies. Utilizing the knowledge and experience gained in developing his Jupiter series, Jim introduced the Aesthetix Saturn series in the early 2000s: the Rhea phono stage, Calypso line stage and Janus preamp. Signature upgrades followed along with the introduction of the Atlas hybrid power amplifier in mono block, stereo signature and stereo versions. In 2012, we introduced the Pandora all-tube USB/SPDIF DAC and the Romulus all-tube USB/SPDIF DAC/CD transport. In 2014, the Romulus received a Golden Ear award from TAS and Aesthetix introduced Signature versions of their digital products. This year we introduce Metis, a single-box line stage featuring newly developed Aesthetix Coupling Modules (ACM), eliminating interstage coupling capacitors, and Invisible Separate Power Supply (ISPS).
