Description

concert system for your modern lifestyle

Aries is the first ever 2.1 integrated amplifier in the Acurus lineup. Aries was designed to provide a powerful high-performance audio experience from stereo or 2.1 sources -- all in a cool-running compact package. The intuitive front-panel interface provides a set of immediately familiar controls that fine-tune the system for best performance without any hint of clutter and confusion. Our new hybrid analog class D amplifier technology runs cool and offers an affordable alternative to drive even difficult speaker loads with ease and accuracy. An option card slot on the rear panel allows for future upgrades and custom tailoring of features.

ARIES expansion options

Aries can be custom configured to support the specific needs of your audio system. The expansion port in the rear of the unit allows for adding an option card to expand Aries capabilities.
