Rocky Mountain Audio Fest 2016 • Hot Product

George and Carolyn Counnas of Zesto Audio showed a new phono stage bearing a predictably Greek name, the Andros Téssera (top shelf, $12,000), the second half of the name, when translated, having a more prosaic meaning, four. In this case, four represents the number of tonearms that can be accommodated. The two-box unit has a separate power supply connected by an umbilical. The Andros Téssera boasts two completely independent dual-mono channels, a boatload of loading choices, four step-up transformers, and independent adjustments for each channel. Four 12AX7 and two 12AU7 tubes stand out amidst the usual Zesto wave-like look.

The Andros Téssera sounded promising perched on a Stillpoints rack and paired with other Zesto Audio electronics.
