Excellent Condition Rogue Ares Magnum Upgraded Phono Preamp. I can not see one blemish or mark anywhere, exceptionally clean. A 9/10 on the Audiogon Scale.

The Stock Ares is a superb Phono Stage as is, the Magnum Upgrades take it to another level. The Upgrades include;

A better step up transformer, "Blue" Cinemag 1254, that provides more gain (about 10dB more) and better sound.
The Ares Magnum uses better inner-stage coupling caps.
PRP resistors in critical spots
Improved internal wiring
Improved RCA jacks

The Ares will drive about any Cartridge on the Market today utilizing it's pure Tube Circuit, accepts 2-12AU7 & 2-12AX7's. Easy access to Dip Switches, and very adjustable, including a "0" Capacitance Setting. Comes fitted with a like new set JJ Tubes.
