I’ll bump this thread...I’m curious as well. 
It was being used in at least two rooms at Munich.
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. 
certainly on my list to listen....
Jim White has ears and is a solid engineer..
I have his Pandora SIg DAC, pretty happy...

having said that Ayre and Brinkmann also in running in that class of gear, Pass also.....
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. 
 @joey54  congrats !!!! i know a guy w Quattro and the MIMAS on order...oh how spoiled he will be.......
bumping this one.  I have one on order with the built in DAC.   Any other user impressions or has anyone else heard this one?
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. 
I heard it at AXPONA, in one of my two favorite rooms there. Very natural sound, just lovely. If memory serves, it was paired with Aerial 6t speakers.
Did the one at AXPONA have the DAC in it?
Yes, the one at AXPONA did have the DAC in it. I believe it was being driven by a laptop computer.
