ESOTERIC
ESOTERIC and its root: TEAC hi-fi products have been making a history of hi-fi innovation with emotion …and the history goes on!

1953
TEAC was originally founded as Tokyo Television Acoustic Company in 1953 (In this year, NHK: Japanese Broadcasting Corporation started television broadcasts in Japan). Later the company changed its name to Tokyo Electro Acoustic Company and then to TEAC. In these early years when "hi-fi" was not a well known word, Tokyo Electro Acoustic Company developed a prototype of 3-motor open-reel tape transport system. In subsequent years TEAC introduced the world's first open-reel tape deck which had an automatic reverse mechanism. With this innovative product made in Japan the Tape-based hi-fi audio has begun.

In the late 1960's, TEAC introduced their first hi-fi cassette deck model A-20. With this introduction, TEAC was leading new markets for the evolving cassette tape deck hi-fi era. In following few years, TEAC introduced the A-350 cassette deck featuring the Dolby NR system for the first time in Japan. The next introduction in home-use open-reel tape decks was the A-7400RX which included dbx technology - a technology used in professional studio recording. The introduction of A-7400RX made a deep impact in the world's hi-fi component market at that time.

In the early 1980's, TEAC developed many cassette deck masterpieces with heavy duty, rigid chassis construction. The ZD-7000 was "state of the art," for this era. TEAC then developed the ZD-5000 CD player incorporating TEAC's proprietary digital to analog converter, the "ZD circuit". TEAC continued to introduce stunning hi-fi technologies which were truly evolutionally and accelerated consumers towards "The next level," of audiophile technologies.

1987
In order to bring the highest level musical experience to demanding audiophiles, TEAC launched the "ESOTERIC" brand which exclusively engineered and manufactured high end audio products. ESOTERIC's first introductions included the P-1 / D-1 separate CD player system and the R-1 DAT recorder. The P-1 was ESOTERIC's first introduction of the truly unique VRDS (Vibration-free Rigid Disc Clamping System) mechanism attracting serious attention among many true audiophiles of that era.
1988
The first decade of ESOTERIC history was a rush of attractive new models; the X-1 CD player, the following X-1s, X-10w, and the upgraded X-10wD. The P-01 CD transport evolved to the P-2, and then to the P-2s. ESOTERIC's "mechatronics," technologies were highly enhanced and accumulated, then fed back to engineering development for more new products such as the P-10, the P-30 and the P-50 CD players.
1997
ESOTERIC introduced another new and superior CD transport, the legendary P-0 as their 10th Anniversary model. The P-0 featured a unique "Lossless Sled," optical pickup mechanism providing extremely accurate data retrieval. This ultimate masterpiece was a winner of many famous Japanese magazine awards and was the pinnacle of the CD player scene at that time.
2003
ESOTERIC introduced the X-01 Super Audio CD / CD player and the UX-1 universal DVD player, both featuring VRDS-NEO mechanisms. (The VRDS-NEO is the next generation of VRDS drive mechanisms compatible with Super Audio CD and DVD formats). The X-01 and UX-1 were built with a resonance-free massive chassis. Both are highly acclaimed as pure audio/video source devices, being free from unwanted resonance caused by the high speeds required for Super Audio CD and DVD disc rotation. Also in 2003, ESOTERIC developed the G-0s Rubidium master clock generator. The master clock technology became another representative high end technology of ESOTERIC.
2004
"The world's finest separate digital source playback system designed to meet the challenge of capturing all the potential of the Super Audio CD format" - the reference P-01 / D-01 combination system was born in 2004. The P-01 transport uses ESOTERIC's highest quality VRDS-NEO mechanism which evolved from the critically acclaimed X-01. To further improve performance, the P-01 is powered by a highly refined separate power supply unit. The D-01 is the world's first monaural D/A converter system designed for ultimate channel separation and fidelity. This reference source system embodies the complete engineering integration of ESOTERIC's digital source technologies, The P-01 / D-01 system has become the "benchmark" for digital source systems worldwide.
2005
The P-03 / D-03 Super Audio CD separate source system was introduced in 2005. Advanced technology combined the highly acclaimed separate design concepts of the P-01 / D-01, and applied new DSD signal processing technology. The P-03 / D-03 system reproduces highly detailed musical performances surrounded by extreme transparency - right down to the performer's breath -.

Grandioso M1 Monoblock Amplifier

Master Sound Works

Audio expression, symphonic beauty, artistic passion, a concert hall spatial feel, the excitement of the audience. Esoteric’s Master Sound Works is an audio product concept that recreates all of the music information in original master recordings with the most state of the art technology available today.

Philosophy

Music overflowing with life. Spacious sound that can only be achieved by a high-power amplifier.

That moment when the sound is released from the speakers and the presence of the audio system disappears from before your eyes: This is the most thrilling moment of the listening experience. The overwhelming feeling of the spaciousness of sound and sense that the sounds are being generated live are enabled by the output wattage surplus power of the amplifier. The introduction of far-superior materials, such as large bipolar transistors with instantaneous 34 ampere capacity, that first enabled us to achieve 300 watts at 8 ohms high power. For a rich feeling of life, ESOTERIC’s flagship power amplifier M1 communicates the music by vibrantly setting all of the sounds free.

1200 watts at 2 ohm power linearity to amplify to the limits of sound dynamics.

Speaker impedance changes drastically along with changes in the frequency of the sound being played. In cases such as continuous heavy bass or the impact and subsequent silence of a percussion instrument, impedance can abruptly drop and cause a situation where there is almost no load. The full expression of sound dynamics is not possible with these sudden changes in load unless there is a current supply capacity that can be constantly followed linearly. The best materials possible have been used for the M1 power supply unit to achieve theoretical-value power linearity from 300 watts at an 8 ohm load to 1200 watts at a 2ohm load. Sound dynamics are faithfully reproduced at all volume levels.

High-capacity custom power transformer forms the core the ESOTERIC power amplifier.

The decisive element in the M1’s amazing linear high-power performance is the design of its strong power supply unit. ESOTERIC has long believed that the power transformer is the most important factor in sound design of an amplifier. The key to the overwhelming power and rich sound quality of the M1 amplifier is a custom-built ultra-large toroidal core transformer with a 3057VA core size and a mass of approximately 18 kg. Following ESOTERIC tradition, the bare (no-case) mount specs give top priority to sound quality. In order to make the fullest use of transformer performance capable of instantly supplying power from primary to secondary, the power supply unit features 16 pieces of 3,300μFF capacitors in 8-parallel configuration, with the shortened voltage charge time contributing to high-speed sound quality.

Grandioso S1

Master Sound Works

High power amplifier opens up the sound stage and hides the existence of the speakers from before listener’s eyes. The openness of sound has great to do with how much headroom the amplifier has to sufficiently push the speaker drivers. The S1 is a high power amplifier that can deliver 150 watts into 8 ohms load, and can drive any kind of speakers of any load. The S1 can dynamically opens up the sound stage, and delivers true emotions of music.
