Munich Report: Aries Cerat

I thought I would start a Munich High End report on the Aries Cerat system now, ahead of the show, to assemble the photos and feedback. I am going for 4 days, and looking forward to it!

Pensé que comenzaría un informe del programa ahora antes del programa, para reunir las fotos y los informes del programa. Me voy por 4 días, ¡y estoy deseando que llegue!

We are using the Symphonia horn speakers, supported by the new Aries Cerat Bass Horns (new design), a Rui Borges turntable, Aries Cerat Talos phono stage, Aries Cerat Impera Pre-amplifier, Signal projects cables and Stacore platforms. Also a Pink Faun music server and Kassandra DAC. There will also be an Aries Cerat Genus with headphones in the entrance to the room. I'll post more details when I have it from Stavros.

Here is the more detailed invite with a system breakdown:

Aries Cerat invites you to hear our exciting demonstration system at Munich High End on the 9th - 12th May in Hall 1 DO5.

Along with our partners Rui Borges, Pink Faun, Stacore and Signal, it promises to deliver a truly incredible musical experience.

Amplification
We can announce the world premier of the ultimate amplifier design, the huge six chassis Aries Cerat Achilleas SET. It will be driving our Symphonia horn speakers, and paired with our new bass horn - the Erevus model S. We are confident the Achilleas has set a new level of performance in SET amplification. And for pre-amplifier duties our two chassis Impera LE.

Digital source
For music streaming we have the Pink Faun 2.16x server which is equipped with the latest OCXO clock technology. No less than 3 ultra-low noise OCXOs work in tandem in the 2.16x, a unique system that represents the best in the musical field.

This will be connected to our Kassandra Series two chassis Signature DAC.

Analogue source
Rui Borges will be demonstrating their latest turntable. Also debuting for the first time, is the Aries Cerat Talos Signature phono system. This exciting new development in SOTA phono pre-amplification will be paired with the Top Wing Red Sparrow cartridge.

The system will utilise the ultimate isolation platforms from Stacore. These superb pneumatic platforms will be on display along with their new and innovative racking system.

The system would not be complete without top class signal transmission and power distribution devices. Enter Signal Projects, who will be providing power and signal cables from their current lineup.

Finally greeting you in the entrance lobby will be our new digital creation, along with the Genus Integrated SET with headphones. We hope to see you there!

System sounded stunning on Thursday. I'm not a big horn fan, but not withstanding this, I thought this was an exceptional sound, especially given the room constraints.

Most improved sound award at Munich goes to this room. Dreadful in 2017. Really good in 2019.

Is is just the amps responsible? Better room, granted, but still not a great room.

Sounding fab last night and today.

Are the Erevus S basshorns to be partnered with the Contendo Reference solely or will they form part of an evolution of the Symphonia speaker if that is in the works? TIA.
