I have owned an Aries Mini for a couple years. With an improved PS it is a very satisfying audiophile player. It has been very reliable.
Tonight the system asked me to install firmware 6.0b3. A couple minutes later and the system is running again. The new firmware seems to include a very noticeable sonic upgrade. The sound is more “in the room” there is more air and space around instruments and voices. Much greater midrange detail. Yada, yada. It’s all good. Very good.
Anyone want to divulge what is going on and what changes were made with this firmware release? I have not found any release notes. Whatever you did, please do not undo it in future releases.
I hope someone will respond. Thanks.
