    Modular Audiophile System
A single chassis audiophile system with
the sound you want and the features you need.
ARES is not just an integrated amplifier with digital inputs.
It is a complete solution for your home audio needs, just add speakers.
Features
  • ARES features two true mono power amplifiers with independent power supplies and transformers based on a new concept in solid state amplification using a non-switching output stage arrangement delivering Class A liquidity and texture without the associated heat.
  • The absence of global feedback and the use of regulated supplies of the drivers contributes to the the exemplary transparency and speed, making it a true Thrax sonic signature product.
  • The amplification modules are fed trough a 4-input fully passive balanced relay based selector and switched resistor volume control board.
With analog replay growing in popularity the addition of an RIAA module to the input board converts the first RCA input to a Moving Magnet and Moving Coil phono stage. Once installed, this module adds gain settings to the configuration menu. The RIAA board has its own dedicated analog power supply making it absolutely independent. Pretty much like a stand-alone phono preamplifier but sharing the same case and user interface.
The Digital input board accommodates all modern digital interfaces - AES, SPDIF, Toslink, USB, Ethernet and Bluetooth. Apart from switching between inputs, this input module can apply a selection of filters, and upsampling to consistently provide the DAC with the optimal data rate making it the truly universal digital input module. All data is re-clocked to the high precision internal clock generator.
The DAC module is a simplified version of our multi-bit R2R module developed for the Maximinus DAC offering similar tonal rendition and lifelike dynamics. It is realized as a separate card with R2R DACs allowing upgrades when new technologies become available. The integrated network player board supports DLNA, Roon, AirPlay and DSD and is upgradable on its own.
The power supplies for the digital and analog circuits are independent from each other and the power amplifiers. So you get a multi-bit DAC, an Upsampler, a Network Player, a Phono Preamplifier and two Mono Power Amplifiers in a single box. Each designed to work with the other in the most optimal way. Getting rid of cables, multiple remotes and boxes scattered across the room. The modularity of the system lets you keep it current for a long time to come.
