Jez Ford has posted a review of the AURALiC Aries Mini wireless streaming node ($699) at AVHub. His conclusions:

“We were astounded by the Auralic Aries Mini. From one simple box it played almost everything quickly, smoothly and glitch-free. It handles NAS drives, high-res files, Tidal, AirPlay, Bluetooth. You can add a hard drive for local storage. It has audio quality in its DNA, clearly considered at every stage of design — at nearly all times the app tells you the quality of the file you’re playing, and we don’t recall ever seeing the option to browse by sampling rate on a unit at this price level.”
