Audio Note (UK) has offered to change the mono volume attenuater at my M10Signature tube pre amplifier to their latest 36 steps tantalum mono attenuater. The advantage of a more refined volume control are apparent especially with a high output source such as the Aries Cerat Kassandra LE DAC.
I quickly have the returned M10Signature set up in my system. After some hours of warm up, I realized that I am back in connection with my music. Both the Audio Note and Aries Cerat worked very well together in bringing music to an “emotional engaging state”. I listened to that audio system from night to near 5am in the morning.
Am I that crazy?! With the right music and the right instruments, I admit that I am so. When music touches the soul, and engages the mind and heart, time stands still. That pair of Audio Note and Aries Cerat is that enticing.
