An ultra-high performance low noise tube phono preamplifier for low, medium, and high output mc and mm cartridges. Truly fantastic sounding!
Vinyl lovers are passionate and driven to get the absolute best sound from their system. As good as the Ares is, we regularly received requests for modifications to make it even better.
