The new Auralic Aries G2 wireless streaming transporter is a state of the art music streamer that sounds better than any under $10k unit we have heard. However, many customers want a full server with internal storage. So here we add a 2TB Samsung solid state drive internal to the Aries to make a world class server for $4199.00 delivered. Or make it a 4TB system for only $4499.00 delivered. We install the drive and test the package before we send it to you. Just run this into your DAC for world class audio performance. We compared this package to the $8000 Aurender N10 and the Auralic was the winner, hands down.

Here is some press on the Aries G2: ' I couldn’t stop using the G2 when reviewing other kit, but will limit it to the fact that this streamer is the best I have had the pleasure of using and it will be a real wrench when it goes away. It has delivered truly inspiring and transcendent music with everything from Laurie Anderson to Frank Zappa and makes it abundantly clear what’s going on in all the music you play, so long as the rest of the system is capable of letting that through. In other words you need a good system to hear what it can do, which means a DAC of similar price and amplification and speakers of the same calibre. The Auralic Aries G2 is for the moment my benchmark for what a streamer can do '

'"The ability to present a clear, detailed reproduction of the music came through on any genre played through the Aries - be it pop, rock, classical, chamber or whatever. And, of course, the better the file quality and DAC you choose to run it with the more impressive that performance becomes."
'let me say that I think I would recognize the new Aries G2 from AURALiC (even with my limited time this is a clear Brutis Award winner - $3899'

"Now I have no idea what my music should sound like… I have no idea how it should sound. I have said this time and time again in other reviews, but I do like how it sounds with the Aries G2… more than any other unit I have had here. As it stands, the Aries G2 is getting our music out into the room in a way that far surpasses what the older Aries did and in a way that for anyone who has sat here and listened… is way fun. Engagingly fun and not in a way that is audiophiley clichéd—no our system does not present the music with a sound that could be described as being proverbially audiophile—hyped and artificially musical. My Highest Recommendation and for me, clearly a reference."

Secrets of HT and Hi Fidelity summed with:

"THE ARIES G2 is a statement wireless streaming transporter from AURALiC that is among the best in its class in terms of features and sonic performance."

At its core the ARIES G2 is a device that unites many sources of today’s highest resolution music files and delivers that source material to your DAC, reliably and precisely, via output options including AURALiC Lightning Link, High-Speed USB Audio 2.0, AES/EBU, digital coaxial, and TOSLINK. The processor at the heart of the ARIES G2 is 50% faster than the original ARIES Streaming Bridge, with twice the system memory and data storage of its predecessor. That means even easier handling of resolutions up to DSD512 and PCM 32bit/384K, and increased protection against dropouts.

The use of AURALiC’s Lightning Streaming infrastructure lets the ARIES G2 make those connections with your music files possible over your existing Wi-Fi network, and brings with it added features like On-Device Playlists, Memory Caching, Gapless Playback and Bit-Perfect Multi-Room functionality. It’s all controlled via the AURALiC custom iOS app, Lightning DS – or access Lightning setup through the new web interface on any smart device at all. In addition to compatibility with AirPlay, the ARIES G2 is a certified Roon Ready endpoint for seamless integration with Roon software, making it one of the most flexible streamers available in hi-fi.

If you want even better performance add the Leo clock thru the Lightning Link buss system and this package competes with the best cost no object products out there.
