With the fast development (Dac mostly, maybe?), I am keen on spotting great deals at this budget max level - and without doing programming etc.
Perhaps look at SOTM sms200 ultra. Supposed to be the very good.
a G2 is closer to 5k but Auralic will shortly (in Munich) reveal the Aries “G1”
I understand there were/are some teething problems with G2…Just gossip…
You guess or:face_with_raised_eyebrow:
Hmm, a G2 is $3900 and the OP made his question is Euros. So, about the same.
Really? What kind of problems? The G2 is on my short list of financially unobtainable wishes.
you forget we have 20+% VAT so list price for a G2, here in EU, is €4200
original Aries femto owners also get a $1000 rebate… just in the US
A chap on CA is being sent his third unit due to failures on the other two. A suggestion it may have been hurried out. Don’t like being a gossip though… l had an Aries and Vega for ages, loved them.
I bought a Bricast M5 (Roon Ready) and am very happy with it. it replaced a mRendu with a LPS-1 PS.
It really is. I bought the bundle of three as link. Plus HiDiamond USB cable. I use it as Roon endpoint, my core is on an iMac on the network. But I think it can be used as a Roon core. It’s made a huge difference to the detail, space around voices and instruments. It’s been money very well spent.
There is one coming from metrum. its gonna be the best high-end-point.
And what’s your good reasons for saying this?
Do you have one or?
The Metrum doesn’t have a USB out if anyone is interested in that option.
