The Ares II DAC is a 24Bit/1536KHz, native DSD1024, discrete resistor ladder Digital To Analog Converter, also known as an R-2R DAC
When R-2R DAC technology is employed correctly it presents a highly musical experience. It's important to keep in mind that measurements and parameters of R-2R DACs often fall short when compared to delta-sigma DACs, but the R2Rs sound presentation is filled with emotion, comfort, high fidelity, transparency and additive musicalitlity properties that often are not present in delta-sigma DAC implementations, no matter how well they measure
The key to achieving high performance from R2R technology is in the use of ultra-precise resistors although the cost of high precision resistors is expensive as each resistor must be stringently measured and matched by machine with human intervention to cross-check.
The Ares employs true balance R-2R DAC design. Each channel is decoded by 4 sets of R-2R network.
This design has a very small linear error, high decoding speed, low digital noise, not only to ensure that the audio signal is low distortion, but also to ensure a very low background music noise; allow the listener to enjoy the true music with a dark background.
Native DSD decoding support up to DSD1024 and PCM decoding supports up to PCM1536.
Choice of NOS or OS, Slow or Sharp filters, the Ares II upgrade just make the already awesome DAC a few notches better!
