It’s the Aries G1, with a Melco N1A as a server. I’m exploring digital more deeply as I’ve not got room for much more physical media.Which Auralic G1? Aries? Vega? Altair?
Be very careful with the Linq. It does need a bit more knowledge to set it up (choice of renderer, for example). I think it also needs to be controlled by Roon? Not a prob if you already use that of course, but even then the Linq is not plug and play (it has to be set up as HD Player in Roon). The Linq is a very specialised bit of kit, that is very much not plug n'play. In the fast moving world of streaming I'd be very wary of this, especially from a small company like Aqua.
You definitely echo my concerns. Reading the user guide etc it’s quite technical and I really prefer something more plug and play. There’s a lot of options out there and I’m leaning towards a streamer with server like Melco or Innuos. Shame not to take advantage of the i2s though as everything I’ve read says it’s superior
