thanks for the feedback. This is helpful. Interestingly, I’ve had two dealers of Aurelic try to steer me away. I’m not sure either had actual experience with recent units, but I think the company didn’t treat the dealers well and that is filtering through as distrust of the products. One also suggested the lighting app and WiFi was “buggy”. That’s easy to believe given my experience with the Bluesound unit. I think smaller companies have a hard time having the full engineering staff needed to develop these apps to work in the various environments in which they’ll be placed. The one dealer also carries the Mind 2 which he thought would be a good fit. But, the MIND app gets poor reviews on the App Store. So, now I’m wondering if I can figure out a way to get the Mac Mini to offer a cleaner, low jitter signal. Experience suggests the servers are much better. But, perhaps Steve N at Empirical can get me close. Then I could run Tidal and Spotify off the Mac and pull from my library easily enough.
