AURALIC ARIES EXTREME "REVIEW"

brgmanbrgman Posts: 2,857
To anyone who has been reading up on this new bridge for playing files and has seen the hype and wonder if it's true, it is,this thing is very nice.
It's rare to get a piece that makes you want to listen to your whole damn collection just to hear how it sounds through this thing.App is still basically beta and will get better i'm sure.
Also plays straight from the NAS to eliminate all but ethernet,or go wifi.
I have and/or tried Marantz,Bryston,Oppo,Squeezebox Touch,and others i don't recall right now and this right at the top.
Not for everybody, but i know some are doing HiRes files.If you are into music files for a good chunk of your stuff and are serious about digital it's something you want to hear.
I'M OFFENDED!!!!!

    Their Vega DAC is great. It replaced my BDA-2. I was thinking of getting the Aries, especially after they added the ability to run a direct connected USB drive. Did you get the slightly more expensive version with the better power supplies?

    Yeah i got the Extreme as some sites called it.
    I imagine you can find a spot to get 30 day trial.
    Some places were sold out.Maybe not now.
    I've seen a few lower models up for sale as they move up.
    You'll like it.

    Looks like a good MS for not that much cash. Hooked up to a Vega by USB so you can slap those DSD files straight in is nice. Fox, this has your mailing address all over it. :)
