Esoteric created a preamp with the best 'high-end' parts available in the world. The C1 has not only separated the power supply from the preamp, it also separated the right and left channel from each other. It uses 4 big power transformers inside the power supply. To create a much higher dynamic together with a lot less level in distortion. On the recording, you will find all the details and different aspects of the music. The Esoteric Grandioso excels because it gives you access to all these details and layers of your beloved music. Both preamp and the power supply use inside a VRDS drive mechanism. What gives the preamp a more analog control without mechanical clicks. The analog sound is what brings this ultimate preamp to a level on its own. Of all the different aspects of sound, the harmonics have the biggest influence on our emotion during listening to music. The level in precision in this particular part is of the highest level you will find on this planet. During listening, you can reveal and hear all the layers in the whole frequency range. It brings you closer to the music and makes you enjoy all your music so much more. Each power amp, source, and loudspeaker what is being controlled by the Grandioso C1 reveals so much more information and most of all layers of each song you will play. The price of only 15900 dollars is even a bargain for the performance and level it creates. When you want only the best possible, this is your chance. It will bring you into a new world full of emotion you never experienced before.A 'real' preamp is essential in each audio system. Because it has the biggest influence on the result.

The Esoteric Grandioso C1 preamp is seen as one of the best preamps regardless of money in the whole world. So what makes it so unique and state of the art............The C1's two-chassis construction physically isolates the power supply
from the audio circuitry. This allows the unit to create a sound stage
having exceptional transparency, as well as providing a liberating sense
of musical vibrancy, without betraying so much as a hint of stress.
The C1's separate 29kg linear power supply enables pristinely accurate
amplification and ensures that the music signal is delivered to the
power amplifiers without any loss of dynamics. This gives the music the
power and vibrancy to captivate the listener. Due to the C1's monoblock
internal construction, all the elements of each channel are completely
independent: from the audio circuitry to the DC power supplies, and
right down to the separate AC power cables. Creating the excitement of
having every musical instrument accurately positioned before you, the C1
is the crystallization of an approach solely focused on accurate stereo
