Aes­thetix’s Saturn Se­ries Eclipse edi­tion is now avail­able in Aus­tralia. Com­po­nents in the Eclipse Edi­tion now have StealthCap ca­pac­i­tors, dis­trib­uted node film ca­pac­i­tors, and ‘su­per-matched’ out­put de­vices. ‘ The Saturn Eclipse Se­ries in­cor­po­rates nu­mer­ous StealthCap ca­pac­i­tors in crit­i­cal in­ter-stage and out­put cou­pling func­tions,’ says Boris Gra­novsky, of Ab­so­lute HiEnd, which dis­trib­utes Cal­i­for­nia-based Aes­thetix prod­ucts in Aus­tralia. ‘ Each ca­pac­i­tor is in­di­vid­u­ally hand-crafted and tai­lored specif­i­cally for the Aes­thetix Eclipse by Peter Mon­crieff, whose StealthCaps are renowned for their abil­ity to dra­mat­i­cally re­duce re­flec­tions, with in­cred­i­ble sonic re­sults.’

In the Eclipse edi­tions of the Janus and Ca­lypso pream­pli­fiers, high-fre­quency tun­ing ca­pac­i­tors are hand-ad­justed to tai­lor the fre­quency re­sponse to 0.1dB stan­dard and the Eclipse edi­tion of the At­las power am­pli­fier now has 32 ‘su­per-matched’ bipo­lar out­put de­vices, which Aes­thetix claims re­duce ‘spe­cific as­pects’ of out­put stage dis­tor­tion by as much as 40dB. The Eclipse edi­tions of the Rhea phono stage and Ca­lypso and Janus pream­pli­fiers have re­designed power sup­plies for which Aes­thetix claims im­prove­ments in heat dis­si­pa­tion ca­pa­bil­ity and over­volt­age pro­tec­tion.
