Auralic Aries G1 with Golds
#1
Hi 

Just wanted to share with you how the Aries G1 (streamer) was able to improve the soundstage and bring in more detail and warmth to my Phantom Golds.
The difference in clarity is pretty significant in my opinion. It sounds like more Analog than Digital.
You should give it a try.

Cheers

Hi
How do you hook up the G1 to the Phantom Golds?

Olivier4444 thanks for sharing. Had did you decide on the Aries g1? I ask because given my budget and I have been looking at lower cost streamers like the Yamaha wxc-50 but if they don’t take full advantage of the phantom’s DAC then I am willing to save up.

Hi
I didn't really know much about streamers and what they were capable of. This link is what made me decide on the G1. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7bO1RHX3LuQ
Know perhaps it is overdoing it at that price range for phantoms but I do feel music sounds more alive and yet relaxing.
Aside from that, the Aries G1 comes with a great streaming app "DS lightning" which to me is far better in use than Spark and almost at par with Roon.
Hope it helps.
