Denafrips ARES II DAC


The Denafrips Ares DAC is a 20Bit/1536KHz, native DSD1024, discrete resistor ladder Digital To Analog Converter, also known as R-2R DAC.

R-2R DAC technology:sound of R-2R DAC, is often filled with emotion, comfort, high fidelity, transparency, and additive musicality that most of the common mainstream integrated DAC chip cannot match. Despite the conventional DAC has better parameters details. Denafrips R-2R DAC use expensive precision resistors, make the Denafrips R-2R DAC high-end DAC.

Ture Balance R-2R 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.

Upgrade ARES II DSD1024, PCM1536 DAC: 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 better.
