Aurelic G2 or Aurender N10

I’m having some challenges in a 2nd system.  I was using a Bluesound Node 2 to stream Tidal and Spotify and pulling from files on a souped up Mac mini.  While convenient enough when working - I had networking/updating issues (between \the Bluesound and the Mac, something needed updating every time I got the the place.  And, the updates frequently caused connectivity/shared file/pointing problems that made it a frustrating experience because this is in a remote location with spotty internet connection and speed.  

So, I’m looking to get a different server in there and am considering two very different units.  The Aurelic G2 looks very intriguing and it looks like I might be able to use it successfully in a WiFi environment.  But, I’m not sure and would greatly appreciate any user experiences with Aurelic devices and the lightning DS app.  

I’m also considering setting up a router as a waypoint so that I can use Ethernet to connect an Aurender N10 server.  This isn’t my first choice from a network standpoint - which I won’t go into here (primarily because I’m using Hughesnet for internet and don’t have control over their provided router and that causes complications for the repeater, etc.).  In any case, it might be a solution and I have an Aurender N100H in another system that I’m pretty happy with.  

So, I’m looking for some wisdom or collective experience from this group.  Anybody have the G2 and have experience to share?  I’d appreciate feedback on sound quality and wireless stability/functionality.  And, anybody have experience comparing the Aurender N10 and Aurelic G2 for sound quality?  And, what about the lightning DS app?  Or, should I just run Roon over the top and not worry about that as I can run Roon core on my Mac Mini.

Or, should I just save my money and try a Node 2i and see if that’s a more reliable set up?  I wan’t enamoured with the Bluesound controller app.  But, I got comfortable enough with it.  Not Aurender conductor quality - but serviceable.

Thoughts are appreciated.

May I recommend LUMIN? I think you'll find it delivers on what you're looking for in terms of setup and user experience.
@uberwaltz Hey man I didn't know you got a Mini! Good for you they are pretty hard to find as Auralic doesn't make them anymore. Sorry you don't like Lightning DS I find it to be a good app and fairly intuitive. I hope you get used to it. How do you like it soundwise versus the Vault?
Nekoaudio: thanks for the recommendation.  I considered the Lumin U1 but it requires an Ethernet connection like the Aurender - something I was hoping to avoid if I could. If I were to run an ethernet cable under the floor (hard in this place) to go that route, I’d probably go with the Aurender as it’s a known quantity to me both in terms of sound quality and in setup and user interface - and even though it’s limited to an apple Ipad to run the conductor app.  

Unfortunately, it would seem every potential solution has either serious compromises, or headaches I’d like to avoid.
@mgrif104 it can be a little annoying there is no built-in Wi-Fi, but for any unit that only accepts Ethernet, I recommend getting something like one of the latest AirPort Extreme or AirPort Express units, setting it up to join/extend your Wi-Fi network, and then running an Ethernet cable from it. No need to run an Ethernet cable under under the floor or perform any other sort of home construction work.
Running Tidal via Aurender N100H and RME ADI-2 DAC here in the house and I just picked up the Bluesound Pulse 2i Soundbar for my wife’s she-shack.

Running both locations on Ubiquiti UAP-AC-HD with a Cradlepoint AER-1650 series on ATT LTE service. 30 - 40ms latency and with respectable up/down even out here in the hill country. Just couldn’t deal with HughesNet due to latency...

It works well...
ETA:  To clarify, the Aurender is ethernet into an 8-port POE switch that is back-hauled via Ubiquiti NanoBeam.  The 2i soundbar just jumps right on the AP...
