I own an Auralic Aries G1 and currently combine it via USB with my Yamaha CD S-3000 as a DAC. I have ROON and listen mainly to Tidal/Qobuz sound files.
It all works fine - as long as I use maximum 192/24 bit music files. But I would like to move up and listen to DSD 64, 128 and so on music files also in the future because I personally believe, that native DSD music (files) sound better.
I thought, when buying a good streaming player like the Aries G1 “only”, I would be able to combine/ upgrade it with a much better DAC later on, but I read for example, that it is not recommended to use an Aries G1 with a Vega G1 ( see Johnny Darko).
What is the best upgrade ? Which (USB) DAC would you all recommend ?
Thanks for your suggestions.
