I have the Ares, it is excellent regardless of the price.

Do you see any reason to consider the higher range models (Pontus, Venus, Terminator)?

I want to try some of them but I'm not going to pay retail.  Been around the dac block a few too many times...

In terms of price, yes. The Pontus (cheaper) and Venus (more expensive) bracket the Yggy in price. The Terminator is almost double the Yggy's price.

There are certainly differences in the sound between the Yggy and the Ares, but I like them both.  Don't know about the others.

Thanks, Kerry. 

Would you say the Yggy has a robust power supply and thus offer greater dynamics and headroom as compared to the Ares?

He could say that, but it would be meaningless because there is never that clear an A --> B relationship in audio or, indeed, life -- however much we might wish it were so.

No.  I think it's more a matter of different filters.

I don't think the Yggy has more dynamics or headroom.  In fact I think the Yggy is slightly more subdued.

My only peeve with the Ares is that they don't isolate the USB so I needed to add something to isolate the power / ground.

Agreed.  I've spent time with both and did some poor man's A/B listening.  Nothing scientific.  Like I said, I enjoy them both.
