Ares II sounds so ‘analogue like’
I couldn't be happier with my Ares II! It is a BIG improvement over my Blue Node2 which i have kept in my system as a steamer only and bypassing its internal DAC. Surprisingly, even though the Ares II doesn’t support MQA, it sounds great (if you like MQA and I do).
I’m very much in the vinyl camp but the Ares II sounds so ‘analogue like’ that I only buy the best audiophile vinyl recordings now. You guys have nailed the sound.
The other components in my system are an ELEKIT 300B SET vacuum tube amplifier feeding a pair of Klipsch Forte III loudspeakers via Audioquest Rocket44 cables. I also have an Audiolab 6000 CD Transport but haven’t used it much with the Aries II as if yet.
Finally, your level of service is among the best I have experienced in the land of hi fi.
Thank you and keep up the good work... I look forward to more exciting products from your company!
