Hello
Any views on the Accustic Arts Hybrid Tube Preamp and how does it compare with Aries Cerat Incito S?

My entire system includes:
Accustic Arts Reference Drive 2
Accustic Arts Tube DAC Mk 2
Accustic Arts Amp 2 Mk 3 - power amp
Gauder Akustik Vescova Mk 2 speakers
Organic audio speaker cables and interconnects

The logical choice is would be to for the AA Tube Preamp for system synergies.
Would introduction of Aries Cerat Incito S make a significant difference. Both are in the similar price range.

Thanks.

Thanks flyer for your suggestion and the direction in which you are nudging me.

I do not have options to listen to the Aries Cerat products in my city or country.

I am also evaluating other brands like Doshi Audio.

In each case it will be a blind buy.

Will keep the forum updated on my final purchase.

regards.

If I were ever to go and buy blind with a hi-fi product (and I have bought blind), it would be with Aries Cerat. Make a wish, double it, and Aries Cerat will beat it.

Thanks for the inputs. It does seem to be a great performer and that is the feedback I am getting.

OMG the Incito S is the first preamp that lays low my long held belief that the best preamp is no preamp....
I've got one on order after auditioning it between my Metrum Adagio and my MSB M203 Amps...
