Where’s the love button?

Seriously, I wish you nothing but success with this venture, Kerry.  The amps look fantastic and I hope I get to hear one some day.  I won’t be making the trek down to NYC, but look forward to the impressions even if it means wading through an endless thread somewhere else. 😁

Congrats Kerry! The amp looks great, and hopefully we'll be able to see some good reviews from CJ, though knowing that crowd, wading thru the tripe will be umm, fun.

BTW, you mention "we" in talking about Eksonic...

Thanks.

The Aeras will sell for 5,995 Euro and $6,695 USD.  The euro fluctuates against the dollar, but we'll keep the pricing as is, unless there are some larger swings.

We're going to offer a show special of 10% off which I can extend here as well through mid-March :)

The Aeras was a delightful listen, and it was both both bold and appropriate to have it available for a side-by-side audition with the T2 (and the DIY Soekris DAC and SR-007Mk1 were just the right showmates). The Aeras seemed to lose very little in sound (a little bit of top-end extension/air and perhaps some bass solidity) while shedding 80% of the size and dozens of pounds in comparison. The build and aesthetics were absolutely top-notch for the production unit.

This is an extremely attractive proposition for city and apartment dwellers, or those with generally limited space for a dedicated headphone system -- literally a smaller desk footprint than some Stax amps or SRX-Plus builds while having near-T2 performance levels.
