The Venus II replaced a Schiit Modi 2 in my system. After about 300 hours of burning-in, it started to shine.
I mostly listen to classical music, and the pianos, the pianos are fantastic! Soundstage and holographic are incredibly achieved through the LRS. I think Alvin does not sleep in Singapore: his attention and availability are 24/7 and of the highest quality! Shipment to Brazil was flawless.

The delivery was quick and correct. Installation of the Windows drivers was flawless although I had to get used that the driver does not appear when the Ares i
I have never done an audio review except to judge my own system in my mind. This is my first write up, and with Ares in my system is a fantastic upgrade and hence I thought let me try. Also the upgrade is from Modi to Ares which is an in-correct comparison (Why Schiit-Modi : because I was frustrated and wanted to cool down a bit, spend less now before I decide on a good DAC). I had Devialet a long time ago and I don’t remember for comparison, however I liked it at that time.
