ARIES MINI is a wireless streaming node designed for your existing audio system connection. It enables your home stereo with wireless high-resolution streaming capability at an affordable price.

Excellent bit of kit. Had a problem initially setting it up but a reminder from Igloo Audio that it created it's own network helped sort it. Ordered the S-Booster power supply with it and sound is great through a Cyrus 2 amp and Epos ES11 speakers. Better still is the fact that the Auralic control app allows me to control the volume despite the amp not having remote control. Internet radio is rock solid on our 2.4GHz wifi network and CDs are now on the internal SSD. Highly recommended. BTW I was somewhat surprised by the size of the S-Booster - it's about twice as high and deep as the streamer.

Easy listening

Great sound,detailed but without the CD "glare"
Even on my 8 year old Arcam Solo Neo the top end is much smoother.
The convenience of every track on every CD at a touch on my iPad is transforming my listening.
A genuinely innovative product, which I highly recommend.

My best buy
Friday, 10 March 2017  | 

This is such a good toy! It's my best pleasure per spend on hi-fi ever. I can play my own music from my NAS, and access a whole universe of music via Tidal.
Set-up was straightforward, and it has worked flawlessly for a year now. Auralic updates to Lightning interface have all been seamless and their website is informative. I am well pleased.

A truly excellent piece of kit, probably the best 449 I've spent on hifi. I use it with 480 Custo Hifi Cables DC3 linear power linear supply and an internal SSD hard drive. It sounds great, easily beating my previous Linn Renew DS (Klimax/0). It also acts as a server for my 2 Naim Unitiqutes so I don'y need a NAS. Support from Igloo and Auralic has been fantastic for such a modestly priced piece of kit.
