With my TT2 pending a sale, I’ll be moving on the auralic Aries also.
It’s been a superbly flexible bit of kit, allowing me to use ROON, AirPlay, Bluetooth and a CDROM to play discs directly.
Huge output flexibility, with USB / AES / coax and optical it’ll run into pretty much any dac in existence.
Nice colour screen, and the ability to be programmed to work with any remote control. This meant I could use my Luxman remote to control track skip and play / pause.
You can also use the Aries as a CD ripper, and can rip to a network location, like a NAS. This same functionality lets you use a basic CD rom as a cd transport for playback.
A great bit of kit, and only selling as I’ll be using another auralic with the same feature set [image]
Looking for £1000 posted in the UK, which I think is the cheapest one around
