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

The all new Triton II is simply a terrific sounding phono preamp and is a bargain at its price. With its large variety of loading options, the Triton's flexibility and high performance make it suitable for virtually any phono cartridge and system. The completely new circuit design offers improved sound, better dynamics, a significantly lower noise floor and higher overall gain (70dB). Because of its ultra low noise floor the Triton II excels with the most difficult cartridges. We have also added a user selectable rumble filter and an external mono switch to the new design. Available now!
