"A No Nonsense Cool Factor."

Ares Mains Cable
"This, in principle, was A Very Good Thing to me (and hardly ever seen on ´serious´ HiFi mains distribution units) in this particular case, as it saved me from reaching for the individual switches on the back of four awkwardly placed monoblock power amps. I feared that switching four amps (plus the phono stage and line preamp) on all at once would blow the living room group´s main fuse, but thankfully that didn´t materialize."
"The first thing I noticed is that it got rid of a permanent hiss from the high-frequency amps/drivers that before, had been very noticeable when standing in front of the speakers – especially from the turntable rig. Obviously, this alone dropped the noise floor in the mid and high frequencies rather significantly, as well as removing a source of annoyance whenever no music was playing…"
"The Ares did an excellent job of cutting noise from my system´s power supply which resulted in drastically reduced hiss, and a very noticeable lowering of the sound floor. Also, it proved far less of a bottleneck to current flow than other affordable mains distribution solutions which was very noticeable in the bass registers"
