In my case the Ares II makes my system to a level I never thought possible in this price range .
I knew the source had an important role in a system but never at this point . Rich , natural and deep musical representation of all type of music . High frequencies are perfectly controlled especially with pianos which is really important to me . The mids fill the room with warmth and makes my speakers sounds a lot bigger and i am not talking about colored irritating kind of sound here . The bass is linearly clean , natural and fast . Voices are incredible .. detailed natural rich human sounding .
Very happy with my purchase ! How would you guys describe the improvement after ”burn in ” period ? my unit as less than 20h and im already more than satisfied .
