    Aurender N200, Lumin U1 Mini, or Sonore Signature Rendu SE

    Hi All,

    I'm exploring the following and would like some opinions as to your experiences. I only stream Tidal and Qobuz and do not need network storage. I will be utilizing the USB output of the previously mentioned and am looking for a unit with the best sound quality. I know the Lumin U1 mini is the most economical, but it offers a tremendous "bang for the buck." Aside from these, I'm open to additional manufacturers. I would like to stay under $6K.

    Thanks!

    Auralic Aries G2.1 and the Lumin U1 Mini is being replaced by a newer model. If you want to go lower priced the Aries G1 is about $2400 cheaper and very good in it's own right.

    I knew the U1 mini was discontinued but this is the first I heard of the Auralic Aries G2.1 being replaced soon. Is this just speculation on your part or has there been an announcement or rumors?

    I have around 4k for another decoration. I was investigating Lumin and Aurender. I want a decoration with a Coordinated DAC. Additionally checking out at NAD M10. Which of these is best regarding execution, dependability, esteem ? I watched a YouTube survey by Michael Borzenkov, a very much respected Russian sound commentator, who guaranteed he was unable to tell a contrast among vinyl and A100. Right now running Blusound hub 2 into Macintosh c2600 dac. Contemplations?

    If he can’t hear the difference between vinyl and an A100, he’s in the wrong profession.
