Streamer/DAC best solution. Help

Recommended Posts

Hello

I am listening using the following system amplifier dac McIntosh Ma8000, focal 1028be, MacBook pro Audirvana TIDAL. 

I Do not want to use pc as player so I am evaluating the following solutions as I have wifi connection thinking to change in the future to a full ethernet wiring:

Lumin u1 mini using MA8000 dac

Lumin d2

Naim nd5 xs2 

Auralic aries g1

What do you think about?

Aries G1 works with wifi, but has no dac. If it's possible you should give your short list a listen.

I would suggest adding to your list options by Sonore and SOtM.

Also, take a look at the Matrix Audio element series...  I have the element X paired to my McIntosh MA252 and really like the level of detail and expanded sound stage it brings.

I am An Auralic fan.

I use their Auralic Aries Femto, the original one.

They consistently get good reviews.

But then Lumin get good reviews too!

The proof of the pudding is in the eating - that is you have to listen to the stuff in your own system.

Enjoy the journey!
