AURALiC ARIES G1.1 Wireless Streaming Transporter

AURALiC is delighted to announce an update for its ARIES G1 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 ARIES 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 ARIES 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 Aries G1.1 now supports AirPlay 2, further expanding your streaming options.

The ARIES G1.1 Wireless Streaming Transporter brings high-performance music streaming to your home audio system. Connect it to your DAC and stream your favorite music wirelessly. With the G1.1 update, customers can purchase an internal storage option to store their favorite music inside the device.

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.

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.

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.

Flexibility to Explore

  • The ARIES 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 ARIES 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.

Dual Purer-Power Linear Power Supplies

  • We’ve given the ARIES G1 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 G1 is the music.

Well executed and sounds great
Sunday, 28 June 2020  | 

I upgraded from a Bluesound Node 2i and after reading good reviews I took a leap of faith on the Aries G1. It's expensive, granted but I didn't want to spend Innous kind of money and have to pay for Roon and so this fitted the bill.

There is no DAC inside but running into my current setup there was an apparent amount of extra detail and a bigger sounds stage and music became more dimensional.

The lightning DS App is great for control and even though the bluesound is amongst the best this is just as good. Feature wise the G1 has plenty and I've made use of the parametric eq enabling my to shape the sound especially at low volumes where the bass and treble need a bit of a lift.

All in all, expenaive but worth it.
