Not too long ago, I wrote a very favorable review of the ARIES G2, which represents AURALiC’s update to its wildly popular ARIES wireless streaming device series. The ARIES G2, which was seemingly designed with a cost-no-object mentality, is excellent in every respect but it carries a rather steep price tag of $3,899. Earlier this year, AURALiC released the ARIES G1, which is positioned at a more affordable price point of $2,199. Although the functionalities of the two products are the same, AURALiC understandably omits some features of the ARIES G2 to meet the price point. The review should give readers some ideas as to whether the ARIES G1 is a worthy addition to AURALiC’s ARIES family.
The Wyred 4 Sound DAC-1v2 is the evolution of the company’s immensely popular DAC-1 series. The new version has several updates and improvements, which indicates enhanced capabilities and performance. Preliminary evaluation suggests that this is indeed a very competent DAC. The review should provide the readers with detailed descriptions on what they should expect from this DAC.
AURALiC seems to go all out in revamping the company’s ARIES wireless streaming product family with the ARIES G2. Introduced last year in May 2017 at High End Munich 2017 event, the ARIES G2 has been available for sale in the US since December 2017. The features and specifications of the ARIES G2 are nothing short of excellent. Read on the review to know more about the performance of the product.
