    Never would have done it without the dealer!!

    While I didn't attend Axpona this year, it spark my interest in updating my 2 channel system. I reached out to the distributor of the product and he had the nearest dealer contact me, Eric Connors of Unlimited Audio out of St. Louis.

    I spent numerous hours on the phone and texting as we discussed what I wanted to do. After 2 months now, Eric found homes for most of my prior equipment. I have ended up putting the following as the core to my system.

    Innous Zen MKIII
    Aries Cerat Helene DAC
    Aries Cerat Incito S Preamplifier
    DarTZeel NHB-108 Model One Amplifier
    Interconnects - Inakustik NF 2404 series
    Speaker Cable - Inakustik LS-2404 series

    I can't imagine going through this upgrade without the knowledge a dealer brought to the table.

    Well you didn’t mention what you had before, but your new rig is quite remarkable. What speakers do you have?

    Re: Never would have done it without the dealer!!

    I have the Legacy Aeris speakers with the Wavelet processor.

    Before I had the PS Audio DirectStream DAC with the PWT. I was using the preamplifier section of my Ray Samuel Audio A-10 Thunderbolt II which is primarily an electrostatic headphone amplifier but also with a very good preamplifier section. The amplifiers were Clayton Audio M70

    I sold off my vinyl rig which was a VPI HRX and the Allnic H1202 with the Micro Benz LPS cartridge.

    I don't see anything to upload a photo.

    Eric just picked up the DarTZeel line after a discussion with Jonathan of Blue Light Audio, the US distributor of DarTZeel about the history of the one I bought. As to Aries Cerat he was selected by Robert of Worldwide Wholesale USA, the Aries Cerat distributor for North America. I think Eric is one of a few authorized dealer outside of Blue Light Audio for DarTZeel. As to Aries Cerat, he is one of 4 or 5 in the US.

    While he is based out of his home, he has been selling / installing audio / video systems including room building for sometime.

    If you have any interest, just drop me a message and I can send you his email and mobile phone information. The majority of his customers are referral from other customers.
