The Auralic Aries Mini Streamer is reviewed by Hi-Fi Choice
A new review of the Auralic Aries Mini Streamer by Hi-Fi Choice. The review price for the Aries Mini was £450. The review uses the Mini as both a conventional streamer with RCA output from the Mini’s own DAC and as a digital bridge with digital output taken from the Coax output. In both cases the partnering equipment is Chord Electronics’ CPM 2800 MkII integrated amp with digital inputs and ATC SCM40 speakers. The review finally notes the improvements to be had by upgrading from the Aries’s wall wart power supply to the optional £250 Aries linear power supply.

Overall it’s 5 stars for the Aries Mini :-

Likes were - Lively yet refined sound; excellent functionality

Dislikes were - Nothing special to look at; works best with external PSU

Hi-Fi Choice initially sum up the Aries Mini as a highly capable streamer that uses interesting features to great effect

They go on with - When you consider the compact size of the chassis and how easy it is to stow in a confined space, this is a streamer that offers a huge amount of capability without much in the way of compromise. While the best results are undoubtedly gained with the external power supply in place, you could buy the Aries Mini without it and budget for it further down the line. Doing so will allow you to get your hands on one of the most accomplished affordable streamers I’ve yet to listen to.
