  1. Item: Auralic Aries (Femto) Location:Lane Cove 2066 Price: sold Item Condition: 9.5/10 Reason for selling:upgrade Payment Method: Pickup - Cash Extra Info: a great streaming transport, comes with packaging and auralic lps. Pictures:
  2. Item: ROON Server (SonicTransporter i5) and ROON End Point (Auralic Aries LE, music streamer) with Gieseler LPS Location: Inner West Sydney Price: $2000 ONO (RRP totals $2500: SonicTransporter i5 new $850, Aries LE new $1300, Gieseler LPS new $350) Item Condition: 9/10 Reason for selling: Raising funds Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Paypal, COD Only Extra Info: Aries has original packaging, and high voltage Giesler LPS supply (instead of stock Aries power cable). Giesler and ST will come safely packaged, but no original boxing. *** Will sell to first reasonable offer for the lot - so reach out if you're interested, especially if you can pick up! *** This is one of the most cost effective combinations out there for a dedicated ROON set up. Sound quality via the Auralic Aries LE streamer is exceptional, and punches far above its weight relative to higher priced competitors. The SonicTransporter i5 has ROON server already installed and takes less than 10 mins to get started. It is fanless, and ultra quiet, so you can have a dedicated ROON server running around the clock, without interruptions. I received this combo as part of a trade recently and got it all up and running in less than 30mins from scratch - and I'm terrible with technology. I set it up as follows: 1. Connected the ST i5 to the router 2. Set up ROON on ST, so it could access my NAS and TIDAL 3. Set up Auralic Aries onto home wifi 4. Set Aries as ROON Output 5. Output from Aries to Chord DAVE DAC via USB I'd prefer to sell to a single buyer - and ideally pick up. But happy to field offers for individual bits and can ship/sell once I have a buyer for each piece. PM with any questions, thanks. Pictures:
  3. Item: Auralic Aries mini Location: Brisbane Price: $450 = I have marked this down due to the marking of the top cover – this is as low as I will go! Item Condition: 8.5/10 for Mini Reason for selling: I got a NUC which does most of what the Mini does (still a work in progress!) Payment Method: Pickup local (paypal preferred or cash)– or post (paypal), can post at buyers expense (postage for both is $16 including insurance & sign of delivery) I listened to this unit for about a week before getting the upgraded power supply. It was an instant step up from the SBT though it didn’t have the fat bass character of that unit but was noticeably lower in background noise and jitter (I love the SBT so don't take that the wrong way!). Auralic are a bit bashful about fully promoting the virtues of this device – I think they feel it may cannibalise their more expensive units. I have not heard the other Auralic devices but more mere mortals like me, it would be hard to justify spending a great deal more money when this thing sounds so satisfying. Delivers pristine audio through analogue (using a ESS Sabre 9018KM2 dac chip) or via USB or coaxial SPDIF. It also allows you to add an external hard-drive (happily drives a portable HDD). Has an internal space for a HDD or SDD (Auralic recommends and SSD). The device supports AirPlay and Bluetooth and most formats including DSD. Supports bit perfect or DSD over PCM. It creates a cache of your library of music and acts as a DLNA server. It can also stream across WIFI or Ethernet from a remote library though I’ve never tried this feature. I would characterise the sound as very clean (very low jitter) and detailed but not in the least bit fatiguing and very engaging. It certainly sounds great powering a Daleviat which is not a warm amplifier so it does not tend towards a cool sound by any means. You can alter the treble character with the variable filters to your taste & requirements. I also found the Sabre DAC (analogue) a pleasant surprise given my previous experience with them in the past. You set it up using the Lightning DS server (Ipad or Iphone) and then you can use a multitude of Android or IOS app’s to control it or use Lightning DS which is very nice on the Ipad. The Mini is very versatile – it has happily streamed music to any DAC or USB to SPDIF transport that I have connected to it. Has 4 digital filters to tweak the sound to your taste. Obligatory DAR Review (thanks Johnny): http://www.digitalaudioreview.net/2016/02/audiophile-grade-streaming-with-the-auralic-aries-mini/ http://www.computeraudiophile.com/content/721-auralic-aries-mini-and-lightning-ds-review/ http://www.the-ear.net/review-hardware/auralic-aries-mini-network-streamer-and-dac Specs: Streaming Services Local uPnP/DLNA library content TIDAL, Qobuz and WiMP online streaming Internet Radio AirPlay, Songcast and Bluetooth USB hard drive files Optional internal HDD/SSD DLNA/uPNP compatible server software Supported File Types AAC, AIFF, ALAC, APE, DIFF, DSF, FLAC, MP3, OGG, WAV, WV and WMA Sampling Rates PCM in 44.1Khz - 384Khz at 16 - 32bits DSD64, DSD128, DSD256 Control Software AURALiC Lightning DS OpenHome compatible software Media Server Compatibility Built-in Lightning Server Minimserver, Twonky, Asset UPnP, JRiver Input RJ45 Gigabit Ethernet Dual-Band WiFi connection USB 2.0 High-Speed for external disk Output USB 2.0 High-Speed for compatible DAC** Coaxial, TOSLINK*** Power Consumption Playback: 10W at max. Dimension Approx. 5.3"W x 5.3"D x 1.1"H (13.5cm x 13.5cm x 2.8cm) Weight 1.1 pounds (0.5kg) PICTURES: I consider myself to be very careful with my gear but I work in an office with a few other people who obviously do not share my sensibilities. I left the Mini in what I thought was a safe location in a cupboard only to find that someone had dragged cables over it at some point. YAAARGGH! Anyway, the scratching on the Mini isn't too heavy but being a black plastic it tends to highlight it. And doesn’t affect performance (as you’d expect). There is a small chip on one of the corners too visible in photo 2. If you close your eyes, you won't be to see it. The power supply has some miniscule abrasions on it which is a side effect of the powder-coated finish I guess. NOTE - DOES NOT INCLUDE THE GIESELER POWER SUPPLY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
  4. I have two SBT units in my home, happily streaming music from by QNAP server to bedroom and study. Linear power supplies, reclockers etc. All was fine.... until....
