AURALiC VEGA G2.1 Streaming DAC
AURALiC has managed to further improve its excellent VEGA G2 Streaming DAC, resulting in an all-new VEGA G2.1 Streaming DAC. Like its predecessor, The VEGA G2.1 is a high-quality digital to analog converter equipped with highres streaming functionality capable of playing DSD512 and PCM 32bit/384kHz audio streams. Simply connect the AURALiC VEGA G2.1 Streaming DAC to your home network to enable all build-in streaming functionality to operate as an AURALiC ARIES Streaming Transporter. Stream Internet radio stations in a near perfect sound quality, stream music files from your NAS or and listen to your favorite music albums through TIDAL, Qobuz and Spotify.
With this, AURALiC provides a very powerful music player that can be used as a premium audio streamer in highend sound systems and is designed to deliver the best possible streaming sound quality. Compared to the AURALiC VEGA G1 and G2 predecessor, this all new G2.1 generation takes a major step forward in performance.
The Lightning DS app for iOS allows you to control the VEGA G2.1 and stream music intuitively. VEGA's spacious 4-inch Retina color display shows all relevant streaming information at a glance. In addition to the easy to use Lightning DS app, this VEGA G2.1 is ROON Ready and AURALiC has developed a powerful web interface that allows you to control the VEGA G2.1 with any web browser available for PC or mobile device.
The VEGA is equipped with AURALiC's Lightning Link which allows you to easily connect the VEGA with a ARIES G2.1 Streaming Transport, SIRIUS G2.1 Upsampling Processor and a LEO X.1 Reference Master Clock. Furthermore, this VEGA G2.1 works with 3rd party OpenHome control software and can also be configured as a Roon endpoint. This makes the AURALiC VEGA G2.1 one of the most versatile streaming DACs in the market.
New for 2020
AURALiC has addressed as many comments from the market as possible while redesigning this new VEGA DAC. In this G2.1 generation, AURALiC has applied new damping feet fitted with an ingenious 6-way spring system to effectively eliminate resonances and vibrations. This allows you to experience even more openness and transparency while playing music albums. The chassis has been upgraded to a Unity Chassis II featuring a balanced weight distribution. This chassis has a box-in-box design where the exterior is made of high-grade aluminum and the internal structure consists of a pure copper box. This protects the electronics even better against the influences of EMI/RFI and results in an audibly increasing sound quality.
Clocked with precision
The VEGA G2.1 is, just like the G2 predecessor, equipped with a double 72 Femto clock to rule-out any effects of Jitter. For an even better sound quality, the G2.1 can also be expanded with the new LEO GX.1 Reference Master Clock. The LEO not only provides an accurate clock signal, it replaces the entire internal clock circuit of the VEGA to push the already excellent sound quality to a whole different level. With this, the VEGA G2.1 offers a clear advantage over the AURALiC VEGA G1, that lacks this feature.
Analogue sound quality
The AURALiC VEGA G2.1 is fitted with a digitally controlled analog volume control. Choosing an analog volume control over a digital version, it offers the best possible sound quality at any chosen volume. The actual volume is controlled by a network of resistors and relays, making channel inequality a thing of the past. AURALiC's analog ORFEO Class-A line stage module delivers a sound quality with an incredible realism and, just like the VEGA G1, you can choose which type of filtering you prefer.
The VEGA G2.1 is built on AURALiC's Tesla G2 Platform and buffers the source signal, cleans it up and present it in the best possible state to the specially manufactured DAC chip. The Tesla Platform at the heart of VEGA offers a 25 times better performance compared to earlier generations and incorporates AURALiC's latest Purer-Power technology to provide a most clean and galvanically isolated power supply to the controller, digital signal processing and analog sections. This makes the AURALiC VEGA G2.1 the best sounding DAC in the history of AURALiC.
