The HESTIA is a fully discrete, true balanced, class A line stage.
It uses an advanced microprocessor controlled relay based 60 stepped attenuator. The precision-matched resistors yielded perfect channel balance, and ultra-low distortion at 0.000230%.
CNC Machined Remote Control Unit
The remote control unit is machined from a single block of aluminum, anodized in black color.
It controls the preamp volume, and source selection as well as dims the display.

“Chunky, organic, and slightly warm but with excellent depth perspective”. The Hestia & Hyperion combo is the “High-value true-balanced pre/power combo”, as 6moons editor Srajan put it.
At a modest price tag, Hestia fits every systems when one needs a preamp for multiple source selection and volume control.
