Jason Kennedy at www.the-EAR.net has run the Aries G2.1 through its paces, as we’ve all come to expect the review sings the praises of the AURALiC.
Full review https://www.the-ear.net/review-hardware/auralic-aries-g21-network-streamer
Jason covers many aspects of the streamer, including listening tests form a number of servers.
Jason writes: ‘There are people that don’t believe streaming can compete with CD let alone vinyl but I suspect that most of them have never heard a good streamer. The Aries G2.1 is a very good streamer.’
‘It should be evident by now that the Auralic Aries G2.1 is a rather special piece of kit, one that’s capable of taking almost any streaming system to the next level. You need a commensurately good DAC to make the most of it and the source side needs to be sorted too, but if you’re looking for a serious streaming upgrade this warrants serious consideration.’
