Wow, a friend of mine mentioned today that my under construction Aires-Cerat system was in the WBF. Ironically, I have been on this forum a LOT, following the turntable blogs in planning an uber table worthy of this system. Joshua had given me an opportunity to audition the Incito Preamp and Kassandra last year. I was able to directly compare the Aires-Cerat Kassandra to Vivaldi 2.0 DCS stack running with a prototype amp and Voxativ Dues speakers. I found myself turning up the volume on the DCS to hear the hyper etched detail-for about 10 minutes. Then returning to the Kassandra for hours on end. A friend of mine in the industry managed to tune the system to the extent that 2 famous tracts played through the Kassandra were the best he had ever heard. And he has heard or owned practically everything. This system when, when complete, will trounce that one. I am not speculating, I simply know that to be true. I feel very blessed to be able to experience, let alone own a system of this caliber.
