Rogue Audio Ares and Ares Magnum Phono Preamplifiers

An ultra-high performance low noise tube phono preamplifier for low, medium, and high output mc and mm cartridges. Truly fantastic sounding!

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
- PRP resistors in critical spots of the signal path
- Mundorf Supreme inter-stage coupling caps
- Cardas internal wiring
- Upgraded Cardas RCA jacks
