Product Overview

The Mimesis 27.8 replaces the Mimesis 27.5. It is designed with a full-aluminum chassis like the one used in Goldmund's Ultimate line. The Swiss precision of its construction and the quality of the materials used by Goldmund team reinforce the solid yet refined look that has characterizes the company's products since its creation.

Design and Build

With this much more precise assembly and rigid mechanics (which improves its mechanical grounding), the Mimesis 27.8 is incredibly accurate in its timbers, especially with signals at high level. As it is traditionally the case with Goldmund preamplifiers, the Mimesis 27.8 is fully transparent and produces a sound of an incredible dimension.

The cherry on the cake is that the Alize 6 circuit (the latest version of our D/A converter) is used on this preamplifier, which confers it a much improved dynamics and resolution.

The Mimesis 27.8 comes with 4 x RCA analog input (Left & Right), 2 S/PDIF coaxial RCA inputs and 1 USB input.
Thanks to its RS232 port, it can be integrated in multiple home automation systems.
