Esoterex Research ERP7
FOR Clear, clean and utterly neutral sound from this high-tech, innovative digital pre-amplifier.
SUPPLIED BY Esoterex Research.
IT'S GOOD TO SEE AN INCREASING number of worthy, locally designed and produced audio products making their appearance.
The latest local entrant onto the SA hi-fi scene is Esoterex Research, a company that has come up with a digital pre-amplifier of note. The ERP7 is not only a sonic success, but embraces advanced technology and innovative thinking in an altogether impressive package.
The motivation behind the Esoterex ERP7 is a perception that the advent of digital sources, and the departure (well, almost) of record decks (which need high-gain phono stages) has created a need for a high-quality, low-gain pre-amp displaying many of the clean, neutral characteristics of passive control modules, but without any of the drawbacks.
