Aries mini with LPS or Notebook Lenovo/I7/8GB with Daphile?

Recommended Posts

I suppose it all depends on how much versatility you need for media playback? Do you need a full operating system? Do you want an all in one system? Devices being used for viewing or listening? The synergy between these components?

Regardless, there are much better PC choices in substitution of the Lenovo for a home based system.

You can use the standard Aries Mini power supply if you wont be using the DAC function. I haven't tried one with an LPS but it sounds pretty darn good without one.
