Review Sonnet Audio Pasithea d/a converter – the beauty of silence

After Morpheus – the Greek god of dreams – Sonnet Audio comes up with Pasithea: in Greek mythology, the personification of relaxation, meditation and consciousness. That’s quite a statement Cees Ruijtenberg makes here. Let’s see if we immediately get into higher spheres with the Sonnet Pasithea!
