Talos Signature review from Mono and Stereo
ARIES CERAT TELOS SIG PHONO PREAMPLIFIER review mono and stereo matej isak 2020 2021 2022 25
Review from Matej Isak
What a way to start the year.The long waited Talos Signature review is out.
Our design was given an Editors Choice award, among other compliments
editor choice
"The Aries Cerat Talos Signature is the best phono preamp I have had the pleasure of testing, regardless of whether it's a solid-state
or tube design and regardless of the price.
The Aries Cerat Talos Signature is everything: spacious, dynamic, transparent, and goes beyond the expected with the intimacy of the music.
The music non-stop, as Kraftwerk would say!"
Thank you Matej Isak for the honor.

Genus 845 integrated amplifier review from Image Hi Fi (Germany)

Our Genus 845 just got a fantastic review from German magazine ImageHifi.

"The bottom line:The Genus might be Aries Cerat’s entry-level amplier, but it’s honestly hard to even imagine an amplier that could deliver better sonic results."

Munich High End Show 2019

A big thank you to all that visited our room at the recent Munich High End Show 2019. We let music do the talking,and feedback was overwhelming with great comments.

We want to thank everyone involved in the room, we could not pulled this stunning room without our great partners.

At this show, we had duputed our Helene d/a converter,the new Talos Signature phono stage,as well as the Achilleas flagship six chassis SE ampilfier.


Some feedback from the press:

 Enjoy the Music

Best of Show by Greg Weaver

Best Of HIGH END 2019 1 1

"We started the demo with vinyl, as Joshua knows I'm an analog fan. Listening to some Louis Armstrong was chilling, as Satchmo seemed to be recreated in front of us. This system had Immediacy in spades. Solo piano had such amazing attack, vibrant tone, and realistic texture, it was like it was in the room. This system was just dripping with texture and body yet delivered tremendous resolution and transparency. The result was a soundstage that was three dimensional as hell... Everything just gelled, especially the further back into the room you got.

Moving to digital, he played a cut I'd never heard that featured a very active Flamenco dancer. I don't know if it was just the quality of the recording (as I said, it was unfamiliar), the bloom and resolve of this system, or most likely, some combination of both, but the wood tone of flooring or platform he was dancing on rendered his stomps in the most chilling and off-the-hook dynamic manner I can recall hearing."








Top 10 Favorite Rooms, by Edgar Kramer:

 "In this context, the sound was incredibly dynamic (I really felt a drum track in the pit of my stomach), detailed and spacious. There was tremendous bass albeit with some periodic overhang – most likely room related. Scale was also a word that kept popping into my head as I sat there pinned to the chair. A great showing with a company that has elevated itself to a serious power-niche contender."










HiFi Live magazine:

Best of Show

  "Being the system that undoubtedly more astonished left me and I will catalog as the best sound of the fair exceeding the highest quality levels that I usually deliver in terms of sound without compromise refers to the complete system of Cypriot origin Aries Cerat. A sound that will cost to overcome listening, given its slack, timbre, dimension, finishes and above all levels of delivered realism. I am still recovering on the sofa of my home from what happened there."

  "Overall this system had so much Thor’s hammer blown-hemi race car  power it scared me. When it finished sweeping me away like a flash flood, it picked me up and kissed me like Sophia Loren"

Australian Hi-Fi & AV Show @ Melbourne 2018


Our Australian distributor Purasound pulled off an amazing system during the last Melbourne show.

Full AC system comprised of the Limited Edition Symphonia speakers.
Amplifiers on hand were the Genus integrated(on power amp mode,resting on a nice Staccore platform) and the Diana Forte SET power amp.Forte took the lion's share of the time pie.

Sources were Kassandra Ref dac fed through a Pink Faun sever.
The Talos Ref dual chassis phono didn't had a chance to participate to the party as a transportation accident of the TT tonearm was show stopper.

Preamplifier duties were handed to Incito S with it's first show presentation.

The system was set in two different walls for the three days of the event.Robert , changed system orientation in the room on the second day with more than worthy sonic improvements.Not an easy task with an almost 1 tonne system.

by Dato Danon Han @ Analog Fellowship


"Aries Cerat Incito S, a tube line stage beyond boundary?!"

17572E7D 3737 43F1 B7D1 878E270DF15D


Thank you Danon Han Hong Denfor a great write up.
""The Incito S preamplifier achieves that rare feat of balancing the lovely qualities of both tube and transistor equipment to present recorded music as it should be reproduced.
The transparency to each recorded musical note was uncanny and surreal.""

We are proud that our room in the Munich High End show,was listed as one of the top 5 systems by HiFi Pig

""When someone, whose opinion you trust about high end hifi, tells you that a room sounds so beautiful it moved them to tears…you make sure you go into that room and have a serious listen. Jack at BD Audio had not steered us wrong! A visually stunning room featuring Aries Cerat Symphonia horn loudspeakers, that are wonderfully made from wood, and their hefty Concero 65 monoblock valve amplifiers, plus more of their electronics. There was an equally stunning Vyger Indian Signature turntable, 432 EVO music server and the system was fully cabled with Tellurium Q Silver Diamond with Ultra Silver power cables.

Now this is all very high end gear, it’s big and unashamedly bold so a feast for audiophile eyes as well as ears. They were playing classical music when we went in, normally not something that appeals to me but if music that I don’t normally listen to can captivate me then it’s a good sign. It really was simply stunning and definitely one of the best sounding rooms at the show…also one that we will make a beeline for next year and hopefully get to hear a wider variety of music too.""

Kassandra II Limited Edition review @ Mono and Stereo

by Dato`Danon Han

17092225 824553054349340 1268189233 n 1

Another  proud moment for our Kassandra Series ,the Kassandra II Limited Edition DAC was awarded with the Ultimate Digital Component of Analogue Fellowship for 2016-2017.

Greatest compliment awarded by hard core analog enthusiast 

A small sample:

I have a number of visiting audiophiles that came into my audio den and agreed with me how the Kassandra 2 SLE was so special, that it was comparable in performance with the top analogue sources in my audio system. 

 I could assure you, that it was not an easy statement to write and surely not one to digest especially to an "analogue first audiophile". 
 It brings me a great pleasure (with a humbled heart) to announc that the Kassandra 2 SLE DAC as the Ultimate Digital Component of Analogue Fellowship for 2016-2017. 
Finally, where is my cheque book? I am KEEPING KASSANDRA 2 SLE DAC!

Gladius speaker review on

by Srajan Ebaenm

".....Out of the gate, the Gladius is a fully formed mature speaker. It's far from the mainstream but carries with it easily quantifiable design and performance excellence. That puts it up there where the air is thin, the vistas grand and dreams of better faint memories. What a debut for a 'conventional' speaker!..."

"...It simply means that for all its timing accuracy and speed, this speaker doesn't lack tone or body to require a thermionic injection. I achieved the greatest dynamic responsiveness, articulation and life charge without any valves in the signal path in fact. This reiterates my above claim that the Raal, Fostex and Acoustic Elegance transducers here are truly top spread and endowed with built-in tonefulness..."






"...The Gladius from Cyprus newcomer Aries Cerat is a very serious attempt at a state-of-the-art floorstander of still friendly dimensions. For €22.000/pr the buyer gets very worked-out external crossovers, inert cabinetry with 'wind-tunnel' head units and three carefully selected and modified drivers per side which must be amongst the top available options in their respective bandwidth windows.



Anyone sufficiently familiar with the industry can quickly calculate that the tall sticker buys rather more in materials and execution than is the current norm. It's why despite the new-car price this is actually quite a value proposition for the wealthy..."
