ATLAS amplifiers are capable of driving virtually any high quality speaker. An innovative hybrid design incorporates a bipolar output stage, bipolar driver stage, and vacuum tube input gain stage. They stand alone as the only hybrid amplifiers with zero feedback, essential for maintaining harmonic integrity, air, space and coherence. The Atlas provides your choice of full range or high-pass inputs. This unique built-in filter is ideal for speakers featuring powered woofers, such as Vandersteen, or for audio and home cinema systems using outboard powered sub-woofers. Saturn Series design themes are evidenced in the specialized all-aluminum chassis construction and elaborate power supply design.

Key Features:

  • Zero feedback, fully differential amplifier with complementary balanced bridge design for open sound.
  • Tube gain stage using one 6SN7 tube per channel provides harmonic accuracy and soundstage layering. This single gain stage provides all of the voltage gain for the entire amplifier.
  • Stereo amplifier: 200 watts per channel into 8 ohms; 400 watts per channel into 4 ohms
  • Mono amplifier: 300 watts per channel into 8 ohms; 600 watts per channel into 4 ohms.
  • Amplifier has a built-in high-pass crossover: 6 dB / octave, 16 settings from 40 Hz to 200 Hz in approximate 10 Hz increments.
  • Single-ended and balanced inputs provide extended compatibility.
  • Direct input bypasses all crossovers and switching for ultimate purity.
  • Bus technology reduces power supply impedance between output devices for more instantaneous current.
  • Power supply uses two transformers and three chokes. The high current section uses a dedicated transformer and choke input power supply. The vacuum tube B+ power supply has choke input and is discretely regulated. The result is unequalled clarity and control.
  • Cardas patented rhodium-plated binding post with single knob lockdown.
  • All aluminum chassis construction assures durability.
  • Stainless steel cover for transformers prevents magnetic fields from interacting with sensitive audio circuitry, preserving low level musical nuances.
  • RS232 control and trigger for special installation requirements.
  • Available in black or silver faceplate.
Please Note: Altas Stereo is available in three versions: Standard, Signature or Eclipse. Atlas Mono is available in two versions: Signature or Eclipse.
 
Atlas Stereo can be factory upgraded to the Signature version. All Atlas units can be factory upgraded to Eclipse edition.

ATLAS REVIEWS & ACCOLADES


The Absolute Sound Product of the Year Award (2020, ATLAS MONO ECLIPSE amplifier)


The Aesthetix Atlas Eclipse Mono is a powerful amplifier that delivers like few others on the promise of hybrid technology... seemingly unlimited power with a pristine transparency... truly deserving to be called Product of the Year." -The Absolute Sound (January 2021), read award


The Atlas lived up to its name... Its transparency is pristine — not like a very clear window, but like no window at all between the listener and the music... You know you are on to something good when a new piece of gear prompts you to pull out more and more of your favorite music... Over time it became apparent that these amplifiers do not impose any particular sonic signature upon the music and, far more often than not, reveal air, space, and detail lost on lesser gear." -Don Saltzman, The Absolute Sound (May/June 2020), read review


Atlas Stereo Signature is a glorious sounding amplifier that successfully marries the airy openness of valves with the grip and grunt of a solid-state powerhouse. As the company's products are hand-built by artisans and have limited distribution among selected specialist dealers, audiophiles with pockets deep enough to own them are guaranteed pride of ownership as well as audio bliss." -John Bamford, HiFiNews (UK, December 2014)


(You) have lucked out and discovered just about the only really high-end, high-powered, genuinely versatile two-box vacuum-tube amplification option out there -- the Aesthetix Janus Signature and Atlas Signature." - Roy Gregory, TheAudioBeat.com (UK, September 2014) read review


Big, bold, solid and surprisingly agile, these amps are good enough and communicative enough to put you really close to the performers and their performance. With unforced power and a real sense of presence, they project music with an uncannily natural sense of pace, flow and colour. Having run the Atlas in a few systems now, it has become a real go-to amp." - Roy Gregory, HiFi+ (UK, February 2014) read review


Atlas (Stereo Signature) walks that fine line between control and creativity, precision and dynamics, command and freedom. The results are, quite literally, awesome." HiFi+ (UK, March 2014), read review


Great resolution and reflexes... a deep convincing sense of space... a sheer joy - both sonically and musically - to listen to." The Absolute Sound High-End Audio Buyers Guide (Spring 2013)


...this amplifier is cohesive, with the bass, midrange and treble dovetailing brilliantly to make a seamless whole...it remains the best we've heard at this price level or anywhere near it.", What Hi-Fi? (UK, 2013), read review


The sound is huge in scale and reach. Stereo imaging is among the widest we've ever heard, and lacks for nothing in precision or intimacy. Add the exceptional build quality and you have one of the finest pre/power amps that money can buy." What Hi-Fi? "30 Stunning Stereo Amps" (UK, 2012, CALYPSO SIGNATURE linestage and ATLAS MONO amplifier)
