I’ll bump this thread...I’m curious as well.

Any owners out there? I recently heard this integrated powering a pair of Vandersteen Treo CTs and I thought it sounded terrific. In my opinion, one of the best integrated I have heard in a long time coming in at around $7k. Not as detailed compared to my Ayre AX5/20 but the mids seem to sound better on the Mimas, I’m guessing due to the tube pre amp section (need to listen for a longer period at home). I’m planning to audition the unit at home at some point.
I had the Mimas in my home system for a week after listening to it extensively at my dealers with Vandersteen Treo’s , Vandy model 2’s and some Proac floor-standers, I cant recall the model. One of the best sounding amps I have ever heard. Made my Harbeth’s sound amazing. I have one on order and can’t wait to receive it. It will be replacing an Ayre AX-7e. Your Ax-5/20 is no slouch though, so I would definitely try to hear the Mimas in your system and see how they compare.
It's the best integrated that I have heard. Sounds amazing with my Harbeth's. I didn't hear that the DAC was shipping yet. I will be interested to hear your impressions on it. It wasn't out when I ordered mine and I am still using my Codex. The plan has always been to add the DAC. Great to hear that it's shipping.
