DESCRIPTION

PROPRIETARY BALANCED 24BIT R2R + 6BIT DSD ARCHITECTURE DELIVERING UNRIVALED SOUND

With support for up to 24 Bit/1536KHz, native DSD1024 and PCM1536, the Ares II is a Digital To Analog Converter with R-2R DAC and discrete resistors. Equipped with the R-2R DAC technology, the Ares II has the most proficient architecture to produce high-quality sound with a choice of NOS/OS and Slow/Sharp filters. Multiple test results have found that the conventional R-2R DAC delivers sound that is rich in musicality and transparency that mainstream DAC chips aren't able to pull off.

​HIGH-END DAC WITH PRECISION-MADE RESISTORS & FPGA DIGITAL SIGNAL PROCESSING

The other thing crucial to sound, apart from the DAC chip, is the ultra-precise resistors. Designed through a high-cost manufacturing process, the 0.01% high precision resistors of the Denafrips Ares II make for a high-end DAC technology. These resistors are mindfully engineered and matched using a machined process along with regular human intervention to ensure quality standards. The Digital Signal Processing on the Ares II is done through an FPGA while it comes with 2 coaxial inputs, 2 TOSLink inputs and a USB input. It also features an RCA and a 3-pin XLR output.

​TRUE BALANCE DESIGN OFFERING NOISE AND DISTORTION FREE SOUND

The power of the Ares II stems from its true balance R-2R DAC design wherein each channel is decoded by 4 sets of R-2R networks. With high-speed decoding and low digital noise, this intricate design not only reduces distortion in audio signal but also minimises background music noise. This allows music listeners to enjoy music in the highest quality possible with a dark background.
