Our Helene and Incito S just got a fantastic review from Hi Fi Advice.

""Not only did the tube combo match the twice as expensive CH DAC in nearly every aspect, it even improved on it in two very important areas.""

" It simply does it all while introducing virtually no character of its own. It is, quite simply, the best analog preamp that I have heard so far, irrespective of the cost. And based on its superb performance, it’s not at all inappropriately priced. Add to this the classy exterior, the tank-like build, and what will likely be a lifetime of service, and it becomes something of a bargain."

Thank you Cristiaan Punder for this great review

I have been intrigued by Aries Cerat since few years and after all the change in gears for past 2 years, I have taken a dive and ordered incito S preamp and Kassandra II Reference DAC. I have high hopes on Aries Cerat and if this impresses me, I will be changing my amps to ianus essentia. I hope this will be end game for me.

I think the end game is more of a mentality thing learning to appreciate what you have and making the most of it. The same could be said about happiness, most people think having more money brings more happiness but this is hardly the truth. Some people have nothing and are happier then those who have everything.
