A little background info…

Rogue Audio proudly introduces the new Ares & Ares Magnum phono preamplifier. The Ares is an all tube design that offers cutting edge performance for virtually any cartridge and turntable setup. With a tube complement of two 12AX7 and two 12AU7 tubes, the Ares offers all of the flexibility you need from a high-end phono section. Features include Cinemag step-up transformers, a delayed start sequence to minimize turn-on thumps, three different gain settings to accommodate low, medium and high output cartridges, passive RIAA that is accurate to within 0.25dB and five different cartridge load settings all accessible without removing the cover. An outboard power supply helps to ensure ultra quiet operation and of course the Ares is built with the exceptional quality you expect from a Rogue Audio product.

Magnum version now available – 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. We listened and packaged these modifications together to make the Ares Magnum. The Magnum version adds additional gain for very low output cartridges, improves inner detail , and improves accuracy. The upgrade includes:

– Cinemag “blue label” step up transformers
