Aesthetix is the brain child of engineer and music lover Jim White. Avid concert-going from the age of 10 and a well read subscription to Stereophile at age 13 were the early hints of what would become a life consuming obsession with music and vinyl playback. After advanced studies in physics, mathematics and electrical engineering, Jim began honing his skills in 1990 at Theta Digital. His contributions to the Theta Casablanca and Dreadnaught were his first examples of outstanding design.
Analog remained Jim's true hi-fi passion, and in 1993 work on a massive tube phono stage began in his garage. Audiophile friends who heard the first homemade unit urged him to build more and thus Aesthetix was born.
The result of groundbreaking design and a commitment to build quality, the Aesthetix Jupiter Series Io phono stage and Callisto line stage soon became industry benchmarks, garnering Golden Ear and Editor's Choice awards. The Saturn Series followed, offering a full range of products from source to amplification and is now similarly honored with global accolades and awards.
Aesthetix has grown to distribute a full range of hi-fi tube products in 27 countries. Every unit is still meticulously hand assembled by the talented Aesthetix factory technicians in Moorpark, California.
