Aesthetix Atlas Stereo Signature

Atlas Stereo Signature uses the same circuits as the standard Atlas Stereo, but those circuits are implemented with only the highest quality parts available. The standard version uses very high quality Rel-Caps as inter-stage coupling capacitors, while the Signature upgrades these with Peter Moncrief's Stealth capacitors, costing over 10x as much. These provide more detail and information, while maintaining the same award-winning tonal balance.

High current output stage power supply capacitance is doubled, increasing bass drive and solidity. Binding post wiring is upgraded to specialized audiophile 14 AWG, which further increases resolution.

Another critical refinement is the replacement of all emitter resistors with a specialized metal foil low-inductance type.

Atlas Stereo can be factory upgraded to the Signature version.
