    Product Information

    "HiFi Choice Group Test Winner 2018"

    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.

    ARIES MINI shares all existing software and hardware functions of our original popular streaming bridge: ARIES, which launched last year on the HighEnd Munich show. In additional, ARIES MINI has a pair of high quality analogue outputs which are powered by a ESS Sabre DAC chip: ES9018K2M. The built-in storage slot accepts any 2.5-inch hard drive or solid-state drive, which can be used to build your personal music library.

    ARIES MINI can stream high-resolution music extremely fast over a WiFi signal at virtually any sampling rate, even for the latest Quad-Rate DSD and DXD. It is powered by AURALiC's proprietary Tesla hardware platform including a Quad-Core ARM Coretex-A9 processor running at 1GHz, 512MB DDR3 onboard memory and 4GB internal data storage. The Tesla platform has a calculation ability of 25,000 MIPS, more than enough to decode a vast spectrum of audio formats, including AAC, AIFF, ALAC, APE, DIFF, DSF, FLAC, MP3, OGG, WAV, WV and WMA.

    ‘We are trying to create something that is affordable for most music lovers, not just the audiophile,’ said Xuanqian Wang, the CEO of AURALiC. ‘ARIES MINI is exactly the right product for anyone who is eager to experience the wireless high-resolution streaming technology but don’t want to spend a lot of budget on a dedicated DSD DAC or a NAS drive. It is the real DSD streamer for everyone.'

    Through Lightning DS, AURALiC’s control software, ARIES MINI can stream music stored on network attached storage, USB disk and optional internal storage. It also supports TIDAL, Qobuz and WiMP lossless streaming services. The other streaming sources are vTuner Internet Radio, AirPlay from Apple devices and Songcast for Windows and Mac system.

    The Bluetooth 4.0 interface allows you to connect your existing Bluetooth enabled devices to the ARIES MINI, giving the ultimate in audio flexibility for the home.

    Have a Spotify account ? - No problem, simply Airplay Spotify from your iPhone/iPad directly to the Aries Mini, and let the immense processing power of the Aries Mini release the full potential of your Spotify music selections.

    The inputs of the ARIES MINI includes Gigabit Ethernet, 802.11ac dual-band WiFi (inc 5G), USB input and optional internal storage such as a 2.5’ hard disk or solid-state drive. The outputs are USB audio, and this is compatible with DACs, which do not require a driver to work on a Mac system. The digital audio outputs include Coaxial and Toslink with maximum supported sampling rate up to 24Bit/192k. The single-ended analogue output is driven by an internal DAC which supports all sampling rates up to Quad-Rate DSD and DXD.

    The dimension of ARIES MINI is 13.5*13.5*2.8cm (W*D*H), it weighs in at about 800 grams depending of course on the chosen internal storage option. It is available in two colours: white and black.

    AURALiC Knowledge Base

    "Auralic's Aries Mini might be the most costly, but the stable and easy-to-use Lightning app (IOS only), useful expansion capability and outstanding sound quality make it the best way to get into network audio and is our outright winner. As a starter streamer, the Aries Mini is untouchable and has considerable upgrade potential, too"
