    It’s been a long time coming, since the non-working shell was on display at the Bristol Show.
    I’ve been holding my breath, but I’m starting to turn blue!

    Various launches occuring shortly for the Aethos .Sept/Oct, so feel free to breath.

    See Audio T.

    Audiobarn and Moorgate Acoustics as well.

    Will there be a matching Cd/dac (streamer) available as well?

    Like the Saturn/Elicit combo, does anyone know?

    Definitely don't hold your breath for a streamer.

    More chance of a steamer than a streamer.

    I know , i saw some comments from Rega recently.

    So maybe a Cd/dac then?

    Never mind streamers

    What I'd love would be Aethos CD ( Isis level performance or better)

    Very close to pulling the trigger on a used Isis so I really would like to know if an Aethos CD is expected.

    It'll be interesting to see how the Aethos fairs against Naim Audio's new SuperNait 3, Peachtree Audio's new nova500 and the established Sugden Audio Masterclass ANV-50, Peachtree Audio nova300 and ATC's SIA2-150 MK2.

    I would expect the rega to be a lot more than those amps though, be good to compare

    I believe its going to be £3000 ish , so not likely to be a replacement for the Osiris.

    Was hoping Paul Darwin might chip in with a few juicy titbits.

    Can't wait to see a picture of it's derriere.

    Phew.
    Started breathing again!
    Yes, immediately after my posting I noticed that a local dealer was having a Aethos Launch event, and so have booked a couple of the free tickets.
    Now, will I be tempted to upgrade my Elicit-r?
