Auralic ARIES G2 Wireless Streaming Transporter

Auralic ARIES G2 Wireless Streaming Transporter

 

With the flexibility to connect to everything, the intelligence to control your musical world with a touch, and the power to deliver an exceptional signal, the ARIES G2 Wireless Streaming Transporter is the most technologically advanced, best-sounding way to bring high performance audiophile streaming to your home audio system that we’ve ever created. Whether your digital favorites reside on your local network, USB drives, streaming services like TIDAL and Qobuz, or Internet Radio, the ARIES G2 manages every connection so you can explore your entire digital universe right from our Lightning DS control app and take advantage of features like On-Device Playlists, Memory Caching, Gapless Playback and Bit-Perfect Multi-Room functionality. With a supercharged hardware platform, the ARIES G2 has got the power to build an astonishingly pure, bit-perfect stream for music formats up to DSD512 over Wi-Fi for truly exceptional sound performance. Whether on its own or matched with other G Series devices from AURALiC, the ARIES G2 redefines audio connectivity and performance.

 

Designed to Innovate, Engineered to Perform

Years in the making, G2 is the culmination of exhaustive R&D striving to create a new, holistic approach to digital music that pushes the boundaries of sonic quality. Incorporating state-of the art technologies and delivered with innovative features, G2 is built for ultimate performance.

Every G2 series component including the ARIES G2 sports an all-new industrial design that’s engineered to set a new standard for sound quality, heightening the user experience and looking every bit as good as it sounds with its contemporary aesthetic. Offering features like full galvanic isolation to optimize the sound of today’s highest-resolution formats, the ARIES G2 is the most capable and feature-rich way to introduce streaming to your audio system that we’ve ever created.

 

Unity Chassis

Designed specifically for the premium lineup of AURALiC G Series devices, the Unity Chassis is machined from a single billet of aluminum that provides the ARIES G2 with superior shielding from EMI noise, so nothing interferes with the quality of your music.

 

Perfectly Balanced

ARIES G2 internal circuits are physically distributed to enhance overall balance. And with specially designed foot spikes that dampen and absorb vibrations, the ARIES G2 is always rock-steady, for ultra-smooth signal delivery.

 

Tesla G2: Platform Made for Sound

In 2014 we developed the original Tesla hardware platform with the goal of creating a high-performance, upgradable platform optimized for audio sound quality. Working hand-in-hand with our control interface and innovative software features, it was the most powerful processing platform available for digital music playback and streaming.

Now there’s Tesla G2. 50% faster, with twice the processing resources, Tesla G2 is the hardware powerhouse behind the sonic excellence of the G2 line.

 

37,500MIPS

Processing Speed

CPU performance that’s 50% faster than the original Tesla G1 processor.

 

200%

Memory & Storage

Twice the system memory and data storage means fluid audio signal processing and support for advanced features.

 

1GB

Memory Cache

An enormous memory cache means reduced network noise and dramatically reduced open circuit time for improved sound quality.

 

The Art of High-End Streaming
Lightning OS is full of cutting-edge innovations that bring your music to life like never before. An extensive memory cache, bit-perfect multi-room functionality and on-device playlists help you seamlessly experience and explore all your high-resolution sources. Take control with user apps like Lightning DS or Roon, and meet true audiophile streaming.

 

Display Brilliance

A 4.0-inch true color in-plane switching display with a resolution of over 300ppi provides complete operational feedback: playback status, configuration settings, and a full library view for browsing your collection.

 

Flexibility to Explore
The ARIES G2 offers nearly universal connectivity for access to all your digital sources. Tri-band Wi-Fi and Ethernet open your system to UPnP/DLNA media servers, shared network folders, high-resolution Internet Services, and Internet Radio, as well as RoonReady, Bluetooth, AirPlay, and SongCast control.

 

An Integrated Family of Devices

Built around cutting-edge transfer protocols, more powerful processing, and enhanced isolation engineering, G2 is a new concept in component integration. Four specialized components, working together to deliver a premium sound experience.

 

Lightning Link

Jitter-free to maximize sonic performance, Lightning Link provides single-point control of the entire G2 audio system.

 

Whisper-Quiet Operation: Dual Galvanic Isolation

To avoid the interference associated with traditional open circuit designs, Galvanic Isolation in the ARIES G2 separates electrical circuits while allowing data to flow between them. We created two special high-speed galvanic isolators and configured them between the ARIES G2’s primary clocking, processing, and transmitting circuits. It’s a new level of protection against EMI that helps eliminate jitter, contributing to an unparalleled level of clarity.

 

Dual Purer-Power Linear Power Supplies

We’ve given the ARIES G2 two of our ultra-quiet Purer-Power linear power supplies, galvanically isolating them from each other in the obsessive quest to reduce noise for better sonic performance. Processing and display power is completely separated from sensitive audio components that operate on their own dedicated supply. Interference between the separate areas is reduced to zero, so all you’ll hear from the ARIES G2 is the music.
