RE: Denafrips Ares 12th-1 DAC.....

I think it's a "Flavor of the Month" thing. I had the mega hyped Denafrips Ares II R2R DAC and thought it was kind of dull. By that I mean it was a little light on dynamics. It was very smooth but at the expense of detail.

Sounds like how I describe the Gustard R26 DAC......

Given the plethora of "bright" sounding systems I've experienced, these "smooth" DACs could be behaving like a "tone control".... If you will.....

The problem with Denafrips the brand (as I see it) is they keep coming out with a stream of "newer better versions" to keep the hype alive.

This what has made my shy away from this brand, personally.......
