Polaris

'What the Auralic Polaris offers is a compact but deeply capable digital fronted experience. This is one of the most innately capable streaming platforms on the market and this makes for a device that will get the best out of a digital library no matter how diverse it is and how many different formats it includes. Combined with solid streaming service support and an excellent app, you have a device that is right up at the top of the pack. Combined with a well-integrated amplification section, the results are extremely impressive. While it has to give ground to the analogue connectivity of some rivals, there should be enough for most would-be owners. This compact and well thought out device offers excellent performance for the asking price and warrants recommendation.'

Altair

" ... I also used this with an Eclipse speaker system and had a ball of a time thanks to the speaker’s remarkable speed and musicality. So timing is up there with the better digital options. I didn’t have time to try the various filter settings that usually make a difference on the timing front, so it’s possible it had more to give in that crucial respect. I also used the Altair in a less critical set up just to explore new music and found it consistently enjoyable, which is a good result for a fussy bugger like me! The balance of build, features and accessibility makes the Altair a great streamer, it sounds considerably more engaging than a PC and a DAC and offers a control App that is among the best around. In truth it’s hard to see what’s not to like."
