Around a year ago I took a plunge and ordered a demo Aries G1, one of the first in Sweden I think.
I have been really pleased with it, and love the sounds it makes! Since then i have bought an original Aries last fall, and now I found a pretty low mileage Aries Mini.
Just thought I’d reach out and give praise to Auralic for building some great units with excellent stability and functionality. And they sound really nice too, even if the Mini needs some help! (The analog output sounds quite OK but it’s not a big challenge to better it)
Still, the stability of the system, VERY good!, the versatility (Spotify Connect, Roon Endpoint, and the sheer quality of the units is very satisfying.
Of course there are always small issues I’d like to see solved differently, but in the bigger perspective those are niggles.
So, thanks to Auralic, and keep up the good work!
(PS. A friend just bought an Aries G1 based on his exposure to the functionality and sound quality of the Aries’s in my setup!)
