The aria server delivered on what I'd expect of a high end music server and then some. Sonically, I found little if anything to fault, the aria clearly bettering my MacBook Pro in important areas. The aria app is a pleasure to use and classical music lovers should fall in love with its ability to deliver extended meta data making classifying and finding your music a breeze.
