    Wow does it look impressive. I have a lot of friends who sell Aesthetix gear. I have owned a few pieces, including the highly upgraded Rhea and have loved it all. I'm sure this integrated will hit above the bar. I need to audition this soon, lol.

    Re: Mimas integrated

    I've spoken to a few friends who have heard it on Vandersteen Quatro CT woods and have fallen in love. Two of them have ordered it. Everyone I have spoken with have said it would still be great and they would buy it at 15k. I can belive it as Jim really knows how to design gear that should go for at least 50% more than it does. I owned his Rhea in base form for a bit and loved it. Then it needed to go back for something small and they put in a whole new power supply to the newest and also some StealthCaps. It took it to a different level. I'd own any of their gear and be happy as many know.
    System:
    Vandersteen Quatro CT
    Ayre AX5/20
    Ayre QX5/20 (The Memory Player with built in DAC and headphone amp built in on order)
    Steve Nugent rebuilt Mac mini (2009) with Paul Hynes LPS and custom silver cable server
    AQ Niagara 1000 power device
    Audioquest Castlerock speaker cables
    Wire world optical cable into the Empirical Audio Synchro Mesh from the TV and Blueray to reclock
    Wireworld Platnium 8 ethernet cables into the EMO 70e ethernet filter into the QX5/20 from Eero mesh router
    All routers, cable box and synchro mesh powered by the Wyred4sound LPS box with separate supplies for each
    Audioquest power outlets and two dedicated power lines in the room
    ZMF Ori headphones with the Audioarts 15' Pono balanced cable for the QX5/20
    Empire Ears Phantom CIEM's
    A&K 380cu with matching cu amp (copper which is much warmer than their normal cases)
    Rhapsodio 2.98 mk2 gold plated silver cable for Phantom
