From the Auralic website: "The ARIES serves as a “bridge” between music files on network storage or high quality online streaming services and the consumers’ DAC — enabling DACsfor the first time to stream high-resolution music quickly and wirelessly in virtually any sampling rate, including DSD, Double-Rate DSD and DXD."
This is the Extreme version with the linear PS and two Femto clocks. I purchased this about 2 years ago from an authorized Auralic dealer. It was used off and on as I tried different gear in my system. I used it to stream files from my NAS running Minimserver using Auralic's excellent Lightning DS control software running on an iPad. This setup worked flawlessly.
Because I now have a DAC with its own ethernet bridge I have not used the Aries for close to a year. My current setup has been working fine so it's time to let the Aries go. You may have to upgrade to the latest firmware but that's easy to do.
Will ship in original packaging with manual and remote. I will cover insured shipping and Paypal fees so please keep that in mind when making your offer. Thank you.
