AURALiC ALTAIR G1.1 Digital Audio Streamer

AURALiC is delighted to announce an update for its ALTAIR G1.1 version.

Reflecting their drive to innovate and lead the music streaming market, this update provides exciting improvements for both models.

Engineered to exacting standards, the ALTAIR G1.1 excel in today’s demanding environment of high-resolution music streaming. Designed and consistently updated in-house, the Lightning streaming platform has led the industry since its release in 2014. Focused on providing the best possible sound and an outstanding user experience, Lightning streaming includes several unique features such as memory cache, CD playback and ripping, and wireless streaming up to 384 PCM and DSD512.

The Lightning DS iOS app provides native integration with high-resolution streaming services like Amazon Music, Qobuz, and HighResAudio, as well as other lossless services such as TIDAL, KKBox, and NetEase, providing a world of musical exploration. AURALiC’s Lightning streaming platform also supports TIDAL Connect, Spotify Connect, AirPlay 2, Bluetooth and acts as a Roon Ready endpoint allowing you the freedom to access and control your music however you like.

The G1.1 update brings two new features. The ALTAIR G1.1 now features the high-mass base from our award-winning G2.1 series products. This satin silver base plate improves their overall aesthetic and provides extra vibration damping for better sonic performance. The ALTAIR G1.1 now supports AirPlay 2, further expanding your streaming options.

The ALTAIR G1.1 Digital Audio Streamer, with its robust Wi-Fi connectivity and analog output, is a clean one-box solution for all your digital music. Connect the ALTAIR G1.1 to your amplifier or powered speakers and enjoy a world of music streaming options at your fingertips. ALTAIR G1.1 has an improved Femto clock, providing an even higher level of precision for the integrated DAC. It also has a more powerful built-in headphone amplifier, making the headphone listening experience even better.

Founded in 2009 by Xuanqian Wang and Yuan Wang, AURALiC products are all designed and developed with unrelenting attention to detail, exacting tolerances, and extreme precision. AURALiC’s passion for music, peerless expertise in electronics design, and a complete understanding of electrical engineering all govern the care that goes into our design and build process.

Turn Your WiFi into a Music Streaming Ecosystem.

  • We developed Lightning OS to be the highest-quality streaming environment you’ve ever heard. A meticulously-crafted software architecture designed specifically to work hand-in-hand with the powerful Tesla hardware platform found in AURALiC streaming products, Lightning OS is full of cutting-edge innovations that bring your music to life like never before. Connect to all your of 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 300 ppi provides complete operational feedback: playback status, configuration settings, and a full library view for browsing your collection.

Next Level Processing

  • In facilitating the ALTAIR G1's substantial and powerful processing capability, it should come as no surprise that the processor at the heart of this system would need to act as a next-level solution. As a result, the product harnesses the power of a Tesla G2 processor. No task will be too difficult, be it serving, streaming, decoding or playback. DXD upsampling features as standard and an extensive range of DSP filters provide broad choices to suit personal preferences. The network streaming functionality is well-proven in terms of ease of operation and excellent sound quality. Networking capability operates at up to 32-bit, 384khz and DSD512, supporting all major lossless codecs, DSD in DoP format and native DSD.

Flexibility to Explore

  • The ALTAIR G1 offers nearly universal connectivity for access to all your digital sources. Tri-band WiFi 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.

CD Playback and Ripping

  • Still have some love for your old CDs? Not to worry; you can plug a generic USB CD drive into your ALTAIR G1 then choose to play a CD, rip a CD while playing, or just rip. As with AURALiC’s Lightning file streaming, our unique CD playback feature uses the same advanced, jitter-reducing Memory Playback technology. CD data is first read, and compared several times for accuracy into the system cache before playing. The result is elimination of potentially induced jitter from the transport, canceling any negative effects from the quality of your chosen CD drive, potentially improving performance beyond what’s offered from competitors’ CD players.
