Auralic Aeries G2 and Leo GX combo


Recommended Posts

I have seen excellent and detailed reviews on this forum regarding the SoTM streamer and various power supplies, external clocks and switches that could improve the SQ. I have the SMS200 ultra and i am pretty happy with it but want to upgrade to get more out of my system. The EtherRegen switch and the Paul Hynes PSU are obvious bedfellows for the SoTM sms 200 Neo with an external clock which would be a fantastic combo. But reviews of other options such as the Auralic Aries G2 and Leo GX combo report impressive performance. What are people's impression here about the Auralic combo and how it compares to the SoTM or other options reviewed here. I will of course listen and make my own mind up but i would be grateful for your thoughts and impressions of the SoTM vs the Auralic options.

I'm wondering the same. I've got the SoTM PS500 power supply with my SMS200 Ultra and I'm sending it into a Qutest that's running on a SBooster PS.

 

I too have been looking at the etherRegen... but like you I wonder about Auralic, Lumin and Innous products.

 

It would be great to be able to audition each "thing" in your system and make decisions from there. About every other week I give up and say it sounds fabulous stop searching! But that was last week.

I discovered that I made a mistake in thinking that the Aries G2 has clock connectivity. Looking at it more closely it doesn't seem to be the case. Not sure why it doesn't thought!  It is only the Vega G2 streaming DAC that has that feature 😞
