Simple Wi-Fi and Ethernet Connectivity
ARIS keeps life simple with three options for connecting to your network. If your home or office is wired for Ethernet, just plug in ARIS and play. If your Wi-Fi router has one-button setup—called Wi-Fi Protected Setup or WPS—push two buttons: one on the router, one on ARIS. If your Wi-Fi router doesn’t have WPS, spend some quality time (but very little quantity) with a wizard that guides your connection using your smartphone or PC browser. Presto! You’re ready for the serious business of enjoying music. If you have any questions, let the Aperion Audio gurus know.
Easy Access to All the Tunes on Your Network
To play music to ARIS, all you need is Windows 7 (or Windows 8, when available) on your PC or laptop. Using the built-in Play To feature, just right-click on your music files of choice and then choose the ARIS speaker you want from the list of possibilities. Want to keep everyone happy? Put an ARIS speaker in every living space to customize the musical experience. Control the programming from your smartphone, tablet or any networked source using the ARIS Music App (Android, iOS) or most other Digital Living Network Alliance (DLNA®) apps.
Hi-Fi Speaker Technology
ARIS could be called the undocking speaker, as it wirelessly provides true Hi-Fi sound with low distortion even when you’re using its full 100W of power. You won’t need that kind of oomph often, but it’s there for when you do. To keep your sound quality high, even at very high volumes, ARIS uses a custom engineered signal path that is fully digital from your source right to the speaker drivers. This crystal clear signal, with proprietary DSP (Digital Signal Processing) ensures that ARIS performs at a step above CD quality. ARIS also borrows elements from Aperion’s award-winning speaker-driver technology, including woven fiberglass woofers for strength and speed, neodymium silk dome tweeters for accuracy in a tight space and two custom passive radiators to naturally enhance bass.
New formats, protocols and wireless systems—the future is unwritten when it comes to networking technology. But when you’re ready to upgrade, you don’t want to say goodbye to a speaker system you know and love. That’s why ARIS wireless speakers use our patent-pending Wireless Card system, which lets you swap cards when you change your networking technology. To make sure you have the latest features, the Wireless Card automatically updates its software as long as your network is connected to the Internet. The ARIS Wireless Card for Windows is the first to be released, but ARIS cards for other platforms are on deck.
Three Sound Modes to Customize Your Listening Experience
For 12 years, delighting ears has been our business. Where you place a speaker changes the sound, but ARIS fits almost anywhere. So the key variable is you. We’ve customized the ARIS sound using proprietary DSP, so you can select the experience you like best. Natural is tuned as a high-fidelity system to reproduce sound with as little coloration as possible. Bass boost adds the thump you love, without the boomy artifacts. And enhanced stereo is engineered to create a larger sound stage for you, without overdoing it.
Some music contains nuances you won’t hear unless you turn up the volume and take in every note and beat. Other music can’t produce the impact intended unless it dominates your entire sound horizon. But when you pin the volume to MAX, what you want is a pristine wave, not noise pollution. To keep it LOUD and proud, we engineered a one-off internal power supply that drives the speakers to 100 Watts total. Then we added plenty of headroom, just like audiophile-grade amplifiers. So when you need to escape, ARIS has the power to let you disappear into the music.
Single-Piece Brushed Aluminum Body
You’ll see tabletop speakers molded in plastic, but we thought you might like brushed aluminum for two reasons: function and form. First to function: The 4 mm extruded-aluminum shell solidly secures the weight of the six speaker drivers, four power amplifiers and integrated power supply. Plus the extra rigidity of metal ensures you hear pure music, uncolored by vibrations in the cabinet. And to form: the retro-futuristic ARIS look meshes the best of old-style artistic imagination with forward-thinking technology. The shell’s light weight, muted luster and iconic shape demonstrate why aluminum remains a defining material for high-end industrial design.
The ARIS precision steel stand supports the speaker and keeps it from passing along vibrations. Tilt it up, tilt it down or take it off. ARIS arrives with the stand in tabletop position, which tilts the speaker to the correct height for placement on a tabletop or counter. If you choose to place ARIS up on a bookshelf or pedestal or somewhere above normal ear height, you can remove the screws and turn the stand around to tilt it downward. And if you’d rather not have a stand, fine. The solid rubber isolation pad covering the speaker bottom damps out vibrations when you place ARIS on any flat surface.
Aux Input Jack
If at times you want to connect a smartphone or music player to ARIS—but not to your wireless network—simply plug it into the 3.5 mm audio input jack on the rear panel. The AUX input lets you play music from any device with a headphone or line-out jack.
