unfortunately it was not possible to evaluate seriously the sound quality of the new Auralic G2 series at High End Munich.
For me the most interesting question is how the upcoming Audirvana 3.1 with UPnP/DLNA output to microRendu or SMS-200 will sound in comparison to the Aries.
I do not agree with your opinion about MQA, but I like what Auralic do regarding MQA. They offer their own MQA decoding to customers but are not bound to the restrictions MQA as a company impose on their "partners".
This is like I see it too. Auralic developed their own MQA decoding but have NO support from MQA. Basically they do not like MQA at all. This contribution is from Auralics FB site in April:
Maybe the area where the Aries is superior is WiFi capability.
Auralic recommend WiFi vs wired Ethernet, SOTM vice versa and allow WiFi via USB dongle only.
WiFi is my preference as well.
I will visit both SOTM and Auralic at Munich High End.
