SOON (VERY soon) FIRMWARE 2.0 WILL BE RELEASED FOR THE AURALIC ARIES EXTREME STREAMER BRIDGE.
Most of you know that this much anticipated firmware will allow the Aries to stream up to DSD 2x (5.6) & 384/32 via USB directly from your Hard Drive into your DirectStream or other USB DAC. That’s right - NO COMPUTER NEEDED.
Yes, you will still be able to stream using your computer but now you will have the option of a CLOSED SYSTEM (see below):
HD>USB>ARIES>USB>DIRECTSTREAM (or other USB DAC - but why would you use any other DAC but the DS?)
I need to put together a minimum order for existing and future clients.
There is a plethora of information on web. Start with Computer Audiophile, Audio Stream, 6moons, et.al.
Here is a TAS review (out of date) to get you started: http://www.theabsolutesound.com/articles/auralic-debuts-aries-streamer-bridge/
PM me for details & BIG savings. Sorry - only ordering the EXTREME version.
