It reproduces music very naturally and if I could say "analog" sounding

Hi Alvin, a couple of photos of my system showing the Ares II are attached.

I am very happy with the product and believe it is an excellent value. I have not tried more expensive DACs in my system, however it does everything i expected and more.

It reproduces music very naturally and if I could say "analog" sounding - I find myself listening to digital sources as much or more than playing LP's. The amount of detail, depth and micro- and macro-dynamics produced are truly amazing. Highly recommended!

I should also say that dealing with Alvin and his company was a pleasure. Very responsive, fast shipping and good communication. Working through them should not be a concern and in fact the entire experience was better than dealing with some local companies.
