Aurender S 10 im Vergleich mit Meridian Sooloos

Geschrieben am Veröffentlicht in High-End

Christiaan Punter bespricht auf seiner Website (hier) den Aurender S 10 im Vergleich mit dem deutlich teureren Meridian Sooloos-System. Seine „conclusions“ sind:

„[…] I had a hard time choosing between the Aurender-USB-PWD MKII combo and the Meridian Sooloos combo. The former is more lively and more dynamic, with real slam, power and excitement. It sounds much like a Wadia and it is a familiar sound, one that I like a lot. The latter is more forgiving in nature. Treble is smoother and more gentle, midrange is richer and less shouty and the bass a little thinner, but more nimble and agile. Lastly, the latter combo manages to create an even bigger, more intimate soundfield. […] Choosing an overall winner is difficult. Although I am biased towards the Meridian because of its gentle, full, fluid, always-engaging sound, I also enjoyed the heck out of the Aurender-PWD MKII combo. If money was no object then I’d probably keep the Aurender around as an alternative to the Sooloos combo. It seems silly to combine the 6000 euro Aurender with the 5200 euro PWD MKII and not even use the latter’s streaming capabilities. But together this is still less than the Meridian combo costs, and it adds so much flexibility that I could almost recommend them as natural partners. Don’t forget that the Aurender offers tremendously user-friendly operation, rivalling Sooloos and bettering it in a couple of aspects. This is something that cannot be achieved with a home-made server, not to mention that it probably wouldn’t sound as good either. […] For now, the S10 is the best integrated server that I have come across.“
