"DENAFRIPS incorporated in year 2012, focus in developing high end audio equipment at a very affordable price. Throughout the years of intense Research & Development, and continuous improvement of the product lines, DENAFRIPS had finally settled with the current product range equipped with R-2R ladder DAC technology.

Can someone recommend a power cord for the Ares DAC that is below $100? The cheaper the better really.

Just looking for a step up from the one provided as I have read it makes a big difference with this unit.

BTW enjoying the Ares that I got new 3 days ago.

Thanks!

Music direct has Audioquest nrg pc $85 on sale
The waudio ones on Amazon are fantastic for 60 dollars or so
@philjolet If you can, spend a little more for a PC built and designed for digital. VH Audio Flavor 1. Maybe you can find a used one.

Glad to hear you are enjoying your Ares.
My personal advice stick with AQ power cords and AQ in general, Minimal coloration, dead neutral and clean power. I have 2 firebird source and firebird high current. Those are very expensive i know, but even much lower grade cables will give excellent results. The best thing would be to get a bunch of demo cables if you have a nice dealer around and try yourself ))
