I strongly agree.
I love my Aries Femto/Vega setup. The sound is analog and smooth. What I don’t love is how the Aries is engineered (sorry Xuanqian). I have a lot of problems: need to reboot at least once a day, the wifi module doesn’t work as it should (changed it, no luck), network disconnects, USB interface disappearing when switching back from coax, runs very hot, remote suddenly stops working. Yes, a soft or hard reboot usually fixes most of these issues, but come on! And this is my second Aries Femto with these problems, so, I assume, these are general issues. I changed the wifi/ethernet router too, three different models. No luck.
So I tried Roon on a Nuc, connected to the Vega via USB (with and without galvanic isolation) and via the Aries used as a Roon endpoint. Unfortunately the sound, in both cases, is lacking the analog quality of the Aries/Vega setup. Are the Roon decoding algorithms? Maybe. Great user interface by the way.
So I will keep the Aries but this is hardly acceptable on a near €2k device.
Love my Vega, no issues here.
