Would be interested in views regarding eventually moving forward with the Streaming element of my system, which is currently Aries Mini>Naim Pre>Naim Power>Spendor A6 Speakers.
Some would say it’s currently a little unbalanced but I wanted to limit my initial “toe dipping” into streaming until I was certain it was for me, so settled on the Mini to give me that experience.
I’m in two minds how to move forward, I very much like how everything works at the Mini level (having content on internal ssd) so thought about retaining the little beast and adding a DAC like the MYTEK Brooklyn or similar.
The other option consider @Xuanqian has made it clear a Mini 2 will not be coming in the foreseeable future is to look towards the new Altair G1. I like the idea of the Altair because it appears by using an aftermarket kit the Mini ssd can be swapped straight over thereby giving instant access to my content.
So what would give the best bang for bucks, how does the Brooklyn house sound differ from Auralic and are there any major advantages going one way to the other (excluding one box compared to two).
Appreciate any views or experiences.
