GENUS INTEGRATED -

MF Recommended

845 Tube SET Amplifier

“The Genus SET integrated amplifier is our answer to the challenge of making a smaller one-box integrated amplifier which would carry our design philosophy. In development for some years, we are proud to announce the ‘Offspring’ or ‘Genus’ to our family of single ended amplifiers. With a footprint of 520mm x 530mm it is our most compact design to date, yet remains faithful to our no compromise approach. The Genus can fit where it’s bigger brothers are unable to.”

Introducing the IANUS series amplifiers

IANUS ESSENTIA Monoblocks

MF Reference

 

“The Essentia monoblock amplifiers use the same TriodeFet technology found in the the other amplifiers in the already innovative Ianus range, but have features that make them unique in their own right. In contrary to the bigger Geminae model, the Essentia is using the TriodeFet active element in a very different topology, as this is a Single Ended design. It is also performing sonically at the highest level, and even though is this is the ‘smaller’ model, it still weighs in at 80 kilos per channel.”

“The Ianus Essentia amplifier is not only Class A and Single Ended, it is also a Single Stage! Incredibly there is no driver stage and no input stage! This extremely simple topology we feel is a breakthrough in amplifier design, is an elusive design goal for many, including our lab. It is only possible to execute now as we are finally able to use an active element that has the needed specifications for the purpose: Extremely high linearity, high voltage gain, high current gain and very high input impedance. The Essentia is, as its name suggests, consists of only one TriodeFet stage, fed directly and used as a simple Single Ended amplifier and uses the “Essence” of the Geminea technology."

IANUS GEMINAE Monoblocks

MF Reference

 

“The Ianus Geminae is a breakthrough product in terms of ultimate sonic performance combined with high power delivery. Conventional solid state amplification can have high current delivery but sadly looses much of music's emotion and realism in the process. We set a goal of completely avoiding such shortcomings. Not only that, we were determined to combine current delivery with the superb sonic performance of a SOTA Single Ended Triode design. This has been attempted before by other manufacturers, but in our opinion, has not been fully realized until the realization of the Aries Cerat Ianus amplifiers.”

“The Ianus Essentia amplifier is not only Class A and Single Ended, it is also a Single Stage! Incredibly there is no driver stage and no input stage!

INCITO S

MF Recommended

When designing the Incito preamplifier our aim was to reference a great Einstein quote “Make everything as simple as possible, but not simpler” and to absorb and implement this into our current audio design mentality. With the Incito S we took this quote but with a twist, “simpler but better”

Generally in audio designs simple circuits tend to work and most important sound much better. However in many cases, simple solutions come with shortcomings particularly in audio in the form of questionable measured performance.

The Incito S is a contrary statement to this ‘rule’. As with the Incito, in the heart of the Incito S preamplifier beats a zero feedback power gain stage which consists of a small SET amplifier and a transformer coupled super triode using the ultra high trans-conductance E280F. This superb tube, which is made primarily by Siemens(, is loaded with a highest quality step down transformer with reconfigurable secondary winding to support switchable gain.Switches on the back re-configure the secondary winding to switch between 20db and 14db of max gain.

Full swing signal bandwidth: -6db @ 4Hz~140kHz

Harmonic distortion: 0.005% typical

Maximum signal output swing: 32Vrms @ 10kohm load -6db switch

Maximum harmonic distortion: less than 0.1% THD at 20V rms)

Introducing the IMPERA ‘Inverted Triode’ series of preamplifiers:

IMPERA II REFERENCE Preamplifier

MF Reference

 

“Prepare to be amazed”“A new way of using triodes is born, in fact you could say it is a whole new active component, a component that gives the new Impera preamplifier extra-ordinary performance, unrivalled by any tube or transistor preamplifier stage to date.”

IMPERA II LIMITED EDITION Preamplifier

MF Reference

“Add Building upon the world class Impera II Signature was a difficult proposition, Chief Designer Stavros Danos was up to the challenge, substantially improving the world class power supply of the Signature by adding a quad set of the trusted 6AU4 rectifiers to feed the driver supplies, each in turn fed with their own individual choke filtered power supplies, In addition, the amazing sounding classic 5AR4/GZ34 rectifier tube is used for the negative bias voltage feeding the sensitive input stage.”

“The cost no object Impera II Limited Edition is quite probably, the finest preamplifier in the world.”

HELÉNE DAC

“The Heléne is our smallest digital to analogue converter. Regardless, by any DAC standards it is still quite a large device weighing in at 40 kilos. In designing the Heléne we held firm to the Aries Cerat philosophy of maximum performance first, other considerations second. Borrowing technology from the Kassandra Series, and with the addition of some tricks of it’s own, the Heléne is a remarkable machine in it’s own right, setting a new previously unreachable level of performance vs price ratio.”

Introducing the KASSANDRA II series DACs

KASSANDRA II REFERENCE DAC

MF Recommended

 

"We believe the Kassandra DAC is currently one of best audio sources available today and can only be matched by the very best analogue in timbre and musicality while keeping well ahead in aspects of dynamic presentation and resolution. While in the process of setting up and building our company (Aries Cerat) at earliest stages, the need of a true state of the art source was mandatory; one cannot claim to build speakers and components that aim to be the absolute best if one does not have a true reference source; thus the Kassandra was born..."

KASSANDRA II SIGNATURE DAC

MF Refrence

 

"The Kassandra’s prototype was developed very early, not as a commercially available design, but as a cost no object lab tool, my personal reference tool for speaker and amplifier development. The decision to be put it into production and to be commercially available was made at a much later stage. We have found since then, with many new converters launching daily with impressive specs on paper, they fall short of what we call analog sound. They always presented that electronic signature that gives digital reproduction a bad name."

TALOS II REFERENCE Phono System

MF Recommended

“After spending thousands of hours researching, building & testing various designs, including discrete solid state, tube hybrid, and opamp phono stages, we settled on an all tube, three stage, all transformer coupled uniquely designed phono stage. One that brings something new to the analog world. Our goal was to design and built the best phono preamplifier, a unique cost no object implementation. We strongly believe we have done so.”

TALOS II SIGNATURE Phono System

MF Refrence

“The Talos Signature is our answer to those wanting the finest phono amplifier, a serious contender dedicated to the world of analog reproduction. The Talos Signature is designed to extract all the information from the cartridge, bringing dynamics and signal to noise ratios close to digital reproduction, yet retaining all the aspects we love in high end vinyl reproduction. In our opinion hearing your turntable through the Talos Signature will redefine what you thought was possible from vinyl, and further outlines why vinyl reproduction for many is the holy grail of high end audio, the ultimate source.”
