Starting this thread for people (like me) wanting to extract the best possible SQ from their dedicated music streamer set-up; particularly the Auralic Aires, which is discussed at; http://www.computeraudiophile.com/f22-networking-networked-audio-and-streaming/auralic-aries-hardware-impressions-and-information-21261/ but this thread is specific to sound quality tweaks and comparisons; e.g. USB input vs. network, wifi vs. LAN, SSD vs. HDD, linear PSUs, cables, whatever. Observations with other dedicated streamers/renderers are relevant but this is not about PC-based solutions. Thanks in advance
NachoUser posted a topic in Networking, Networked Audio, and Streamingso i recently got an Auralic Aries and have it setup to play music from my NAS in another room connected via CAT5/6 cable and I noticed the iOS app on my iPad freezes a lot and seems to be kind of slow/buggy. Has anyone else experienced this? Is there something I am not doing (outside the instructions from Auralic) or should be doing to make it a smoother working playback experience? I keep reading about having to setup Mimiserver or other server player software in order to use the Aries with my NAS (QNAP and wdmycloud BTW) but I have found it works best so far if i leave the stock settings on the app the way they are and it is basically plug and play. I understand the ios App is the only way to control the Aries (i have an ipad but no iphone) does anyone know if they have a web interface or other desktop app to be released anytime soon? seems quite limiting to force app controlled playback to one device for such a high end player. Also thinking of returning my DAC2DX and looking at some higher end DACs. I think I asked this on another thread but what else is out there that is under the 10K mark USD but has more I/O and as good if not better performance than the benchmark DAC2dx?
