DIONE HYBRID POWER AMPLIFIER
INSPIRED BY THE BEST
Aesthetix is proud to introduce the Dione two-channel hybrid power amplifier featuring zero feedback and differential balanced-bridged outputs. The hybrid design draws inspiration from award-winning Atlas power amplifier and Mimas integrated amplifier. Dione offers a bipolar output stage, bipolar driver stage, fet input stage and a vacuum tube gain stage.
The optional discrete internal crossover module allows separate crossover inputs. All inputs have both single-ended and balanced jacks. The low-flux transformer is custom-wound in-house and supplies high and low current power to all individual discrete regulation circuits throughout the Dione. A stainless steel transformer cover prevents magnetic fields from interacting with sensitive audio circuits.
HIGHEST QUALITY DETAILS
The vacuum tube voltage gain stage uses Roederstein MK4 plate load resistors, high-grade polypropylene film coupling capacitors from Reliable Capacitor, and silver/ceramic tube sockets. All XLR connectors are Neutrik. Dione’s stunning machined aluminum casework echos the beautiful lines and proportions of Mimas and Pallene.
