AURALiC VEGA G1 Streaming DAC

Years in the making, the VEGA G1 Streaming DAC turns the classic AURALiC VEGA into a state-of-the-art device with the power to invigorate your digital audio experience.

A longtime favorite for its beautifully musical sound, VEGA isn’t just a DAC anymore — it’s also a full-featured streamer capable of connecting to local and online sources of high-resolution digital music. 

That makes the VEGA G1 everything you need to access your favorite tunes no matter where they are, and convert them to a rich analog signal for your system.

The VEGA G1 boasts major DAC performance improvements over the original too, with several design improvements borrowed from our top-of-the-line G2 devices, for a sound that lives up to the VEGA tradition.

Master Clock DAC

  • The completely redesigned architecture of the VEGA G1 allows it to accomplish something amazing: it is the first DAC ever that operates independently of the source signal’s frequency.

Tesla G1

  • Scalable Power, Custom-Built for Streaming Audio. Our Tesla G1 hardware platform is the processing engine that gives the VEGA G1 the power and flexibility it needs to meet the demands of modern high-resolution streaming. Designed around a high-performance Quad-Core Cortex-A9 processor running at 1GHz, Tesla G1 sports 1GB DDR3 RAM and 4GB of storage. Automatic updates keep the Tesla G1 platform outfitted with the latest features and support, so your device is always ready for peak performance and up-to-the-minute functionality.

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.

Flexibility to Explore

  • Connect every source you’ve got to the VEGA G1 using its full array of digital input ports including AES/ EBU, Digital Coaxial, and TOSLINK. Access network resources like UPnP/DLNA media servers, high-resolution Internet Services and Internet Radio via Ethernet.

Customized DAC Chip

  • There wasn’t a DAC chip on the market that could satisfy our requirements for sonic performance with the all-new VEGA G1. That’s why we used a modified Sabre DAC chip scheme, optimized for audio signal processing of resolutions up to DSD512. It’s just one more way we made sure everything inside the VEGA G1 lives up our premium sound quality standard.
