Elevating the listening experience to new heights, Goldmund proudly presents Mimesis Signature, a convergence of analog finesse and digital prowess. This symphony of audio excellence introduces a paradigm shift in preamplification technology.
At its core, Mimesis Signature introduces the ESS9028Q2M SABRE32 Reference DAC, a 32-bit stereo digital-to-analog converter that reshapes sound fidelity. With unparalleled capabilities, it seamlessly handles PCM audio data up to 384 kHz at 32-bit and DSD data up to the extraordinary DSD-22.6 MHz (DSD512) format. This DAC sets new benchmarks with a dynamic range (DNR) of 129 dB and a remarkably low THD+N of -120 dB, capturing every nuance precisely.
Crafted with care, the Mimesis Signature power supply sets new standards for audio clarity. Its design meticulously curbs noise to ensure maximum precision in sound reproduction. Output noise measures a surprisingly low 18 µV, producing unparalleled audio purity. Additionally, the power supply achieves an impressive 80 dB power supply rejection, further strengthening against any potential noise intrusion.
Segregation remains paramount in the design of the Mimesis Signature. By clearly separating the analog and digital power supplies, we protect the audio signal and its components from any possible noise interference. This separation guarantees an impeccable sound canvas
Starting in 2023, our new preamplifier model incorporates an innovative design language, perfectly harmonizing aesthetics with functionality. The top panel exhibits a “screwless design,” creating a neat and streamlined appearance. The side panels elegantly reflect the design ethos of our renowned range of active speakers, embodying the essence of the Waves “Gaïa” archetype.
Notable improvements adorn the new product line, underscoring our commitment to precision mechanics. With an improved and thicker panel structure, assembly and handling becomes an experience. Spanning a 12mm profile (previously 6-8mm), these improvements epitomize our dedication to unparalleled quality and craftsmanship. Prepare to immerse yourself in a soundscape where innovation merges seamlessly with tradition. The Mimesis signature is a testament to our relentless pursuit of sonic perfection. Experience the art of audio like never before.
