ARES MK2

The Thrax Ares packs all of the above optimized to interface to each other in a single bulletproof chassis with timeless design to deliver the sound you want with the features you need without the clutter and unnecessary expense.

POWER amplifiers used in Ares are two completely independent solid state monoblocks. We use a proprietary sliding bias technology to avoid output transistor switching. They retain all the qualities of Class A amplification, while keeping the generated heat under control. Those power amps carry a number of innovations we feel are defining for the attributed sonic character. With zero global feedback the amp still has vanishingly low distortion and unprecedented load stability. To round it off you have a regulated power supply for the input and drivers taking it beyond most high end offerings today.

Ares is the distilled result of years of experience as manufacturer where we were gathering feedback from the end users as to what their dream system is and this is what the wish list consisted of:

Mono power amplifiers that have:

  • Class A liquidity and texture
  • Zero global feedback
  • Regulated supplies 
  • Balanced front end for immunity to interference

​​Preamplifier with:

  • Switched resistor volume control
  • True balanced operation with both XLR and RCA inputs
  • MM/MC phono section with selectable loading
  • Large LCD display
  • Microprocessor control
  • No moving parts for zero maintenance during lifetime
  • Home Theatre bypass
  • Upgradable software

DAC with:

  • Streaming supporting multiple protocols
  • DSD support
  • Regulated power supply and separate transformers for digital and analog front end.
  • Bluetooth input
  • 32bit/768kHz USB input
  • Roon Ready Differential architecture with discrete resistors – no off-the-shelf chip
  • Future proof

Each of the three has to have its own power supply, regulators and logic.
Chassis has to be a solid vibration-free sculpture protecting and supporting the performance of the circuits inside.
