Review - Auralic Aries Streamer and Gemini 2000 Headphone Dock by High Fidelity
T wo reviews for the price of one in which the £1,500 Auralic Aries Digital Media Bridge is reviewed alongside the £1,890 Auralic Aries Gemini 2000 Headphone Dock. These two Auralic products are unusual in that the Auralic Aries is a streamer without a USB DAC ( technically a digital media bridge ) and the Auralic Gemini 2000 Headphone Dock actually includes a USB DAC and headphone amp, so put together you have a complete headphone playback system. The reviewer notes that the Auralic Aries is really a very well thought out, Computer Audio orientated, computer and concludes :-

Simple multi-format drives used in Blu-ray players, when playing a CD sounded worse than Aries playing a rip from the same CD. There is less focus, sound is smeared, and there is some sort of sound “diffusion”. The Aries does a much better job, and I think today it simply has no competition on the market that I know of.
