User's guide

"...the connections are all silent and extremely stable, with no clicks and pops or interruptions to playback. The gapless playback mode works perfectly on every format I have at my disposal. It is attention to detail that marks the Auralic out as a seriously impressive streaming transport."

"The Auralic Aries G2 is for the moment my benchmark for what a streamer can do, I hope to find something to beat it but will not be holding my breath until that happens."
