Pure Resistor-Driven Audio Conversion

Sometimes, older is better. The Denafrips Ares II R-2R DAC makes use of the very first form of digital-to-analog conversion, a resistor ladder, to deliver exceptional audio. Unlike modern processing chips that decode signals digitally, resistor ladders respond to voltage pulses from the original analog sine wave signal. With quality resistors, this design leads to higher audio fidelity that doesn’t require extra analog filtering. The 20-bit/1536KHz, native DSD1024 Ares II uses ultra-precise resistors configured in a true balanced R-2R design where each channel is decoded by four R-2R networks. The result is very small linear error, low digital noise, high decoding speed, and expressive audio across all frequencies.

Note: At checkout, choose a 110V or 220V power option.
