Building on the release of the 2016 Andros Téssera Phonostage the new T-REF is a complete electronic redesign of all the circuits, power supply and components.

George Counnas, President and Chief Engineer says, “I’m proud to give this product the Reference label. The design synergy really came together. It’s quieter, more musical and the detail from the groove is quite astonishing.” It’s the kind of product that people will say, “I never heard that from my vinyl before.”

FOUR TONEARMS

The Zesto Audio Andros Téssera Reference accommodates up to four tonearms with 2 MM and 2 MC inputs and with fully transformer balanced outputs. Each independent dual Mono channel has two sets of ground loop switches.
