AURALiC ARIES G2.1 Wireless Streaming Transporter

The flexibility to connect to everything, the intelligence to control your world of music with a touch, and the power to deliver a signal of incomparable fidelity. The ARIES G2.1 Wireless Streaming Transporter stands out as the most advanced, high-performance method for bringing truly cutting-edge streaming to your audio system that we’ve developed. 

Whether your music resides on your network, a USB drive, on streaming services like TIDAL and Qobuz, or Internet Radio, the ARIES G2.1 provides endless options to explore your universe of music 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 Tesla G2 hardware platform, the ARIES G2.1 has the power to build a pure, bit-perfect stream for music formats up to 32bit/384khz PCM and DSD512 over Wi-Fi for truly exceptional sonic satisfaction. On its own or matched with other G-Series devices, the ARIES G2.1 redefines audio performance from a digital source.

Designed to Innovate, Engineered to Perform

G2.1 is the next logical evolutionary step, resulting from a desire to improve upon the original G2 series. At AURALiC, we always work to create a new approach to digital music that pushes the boundaries of sonic quality. Incorporating state-of-the-art technologies and delivered with innovative features, G2.1 is built for ultimate levels of sonic performance.

Every G2.1 series component, including the ARIES G2.1, sports an all-new industrial design that’s engineered to set a new standard for sound quality, enhance the user experience, and look every bit as good as it sounds with its contemporary aesthetic. Offering features like a copper enclosure, a high-mass base, and an enhanced suspension system optimizes the sound of the ARIES G2.1 and ensures it is the most capable and feature-rich way to introduce streaming to your audio system that we’ve ever created.

Unity Chassis II

  • The ARIES G2.1 chassis has been designed as a double enclosure, where an outer case made from high-grade aluminum is supplemented with an inner layer of copper. A high-mass base and enhanced four-foot multi-spring suspension system complete the quiet, noise defeating performance of the ARIES G2.1’s Unity Chassis II.

Perfectly Balanced

  • ARIES G2.1 internal circuits are physically distributed to enhance overall balance. And with specially designed foot spikes that dampen and absorb vibrations, the ARIES G2.1 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.

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 300 ppi provides complete operational feedback: playback status, configuration settings, and a full library view for browsing your collection.

Flexibility to Explore

  • The ARIES G2.1 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 G2.1 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.

An Integrated Family of Devices

  • Built around cutting-edge transfer protocols, more powerful processing, and enhanced isolation engineering, G2 and G2.1 are a new concept in component integration. Our flagship series of products provides ultra-fast connectivity, due entirely to Lightning Link. Everything from audio signal, to digital clocking, and control signals are easily handled by Lightning Link. Every G2 and G2.1 product boasts a Lightning Link connection port, allowing them to be connected together as a stack.

Lightning Link
 

  • The HDMI-type, 18Gbps high-speed connection provides ultra-fast two-way communication and boasts the only real jitter-free link in the world of high-performance audio. As an added bonus, G2 and G2.1 products can be linked without worry, allowing them to work seamlessly, as one contiguous digital source for an astonishing musical experience.

Whisper-Quiet Operation: Dual Galvanic Isolation

  • To avoid the interference associated with traditional open circuit designs, Galvanic Isolation in the ARIES G2.1 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 G2.1 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 G2.1 is the music.
