This is the legendary amp from Swiss high end manufacturer. It has been upgraded to the 9+ which has the gold/rhodium A2 modules installed. The Mimesis 9+ is a true reference amp for the “budget” audiophile who wants to achieve reference sound standards without breaking the bank. With its $14,400 MSRP back then, it would have been a $25,000 amp now and it would still be a bargain. So for $3,500 now, you will enjoy Swiss craftsmanship, reference level sound and a sore back after trying to move it around in your system. The Mimesis 9+ is all about transient speed, deep bass authority, forward sounding mids and a crystal clear high. The $3,000 to $5,000 category of power amps is a very crowded environment but the Mimesis 9+ stands at the top of the list as the mid-price amp that offers a reference level sound.
Cosmetically, the unit is in good shape. Some minor scrapes on the faceplate but nothing major (some rubbing and slight ding on the bottom left corner) and a patch of scuff marks on the left side panel. This massive amp will ship freight only. Local pickup at our store encouraged.
