Aesthetix Mimas -SOLD-
With the Mimas integrated amplifier Aesthetix has created a merged version of its Calypso preamp and Atlas power amplifier. It uses the same volume control as the Calypso, with 88 steps in 1dB increments, employing individual switched 1% metal film resistors. The Mimas’s precision and ‘quietness’ are admirable, especially for listeners sensitive to precise level setting. The preamp section also injects warmth and ‘holography’, thanks to a pair of 6DJ8/6922 valves, one per channel, in a fully differential, balanced configuration. The power amp is based on the Atlas amplifier. Thus the amp section is a fully-discrete, fully-differential, zero (global) feedback, DC-coupled, balanced bridge output design operating in Class AB mode.
Power output: 150Wpc into 8 ohms, 280Wpc into 4 ohms, both channels driven. It comes with the original box, remote and manual. Newprice: 10.950 euro (pricelist is available), now for 4.750 euro.
