Ares II sounds so ‘analogue like’

Hi Alvin,


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!


Yours Truly,

Colin B. @ Canada
