This is the legendary amp from Swiss high end manufacturer. 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 $3,995 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 now mid-price amp that offers a reference level sound. Power output is a robust 200W per channel in 8 ohms.
Cosmetically, the unit is in very nice shape. Some minor scuff marks on the top cover and a few tiny scrapes on the edges of the faceplate but nothing major. We have the original box but this massive amp will ship freight only. Local pickup at our store encouraged.
