GOLDMUND
MIMESIS REFERENCE

CA$206,000.00

Description ▴

Driven by Class A Output Stage Drivers, this preamplifier is a maestro of minimalism, employed to guarantee the lowest Total Harmonic Distortion (THD) and Intermodulation Distortion (IMD). The result? A harmonious soundscape that resonates with authenticity and captures the very essence of the music. The Mimesis Reference defies convention with its mastery over Ultra-Low Transient Intermodulation Distortion (TIM). Every delicate transition, every crescendo, is imbued with a purity that embraces the essence of true fidelity.

A complete redesign of the power supply has been implemented, utilizing separate analogue and digital circuits. Custom audio-grade transformers are employed to drive each section of the preamplifier, ensuring optimal performance. Each side (left & right) of the preamplifier has its dedicated power supply, enhancing channel separation.
