Description

AURALiC Aries G1.1 Wireless Streaming Transporter

Connect the AURALiC Aries G1.1 Wireless Streaming Transporter natively to the best music services like Amazon Music, Qobuz, Tidal, KKBOX, and HighResAudio using their Lightning Streaming Platform.

You can also create On-Device Playlists, listen to Internet Radio, or stream music stored on a local USB or NAS drive.

Control the ARIES G1.1 with the intuitive Lightning DS app, as a Roon-Ready Endpoint, or with other Open Home compatible software. Featuring a more robust and elegant chassis, optional internal hard drive storage, and AirPlay 2 connectivity, the new ARIES G1.1 is ready to transform the way you listen to music.

The original ARIES Wireless Streaming Bridge transformed the digital audio experience, allowing music lovers to stream high-resolution favorites from local and Internet sources over Wi-Fi for the first time. Now they’ve given the ARIES the G1.1 upgrade, keeping their most accessible streaming device on the cutting edge.

The G1.1 update to the ARIES draws extensively from innovative technologies developed for their highly acclaimed G2.1 series, with a supercharged hardware platform and a completely transformed industrial design leading the way. Outfitting your home audio system with state-of-the-art streaming performance and features is more accessible than ever — with the ARIES G1.1 Wireless Streaming Transporter.

 

Review

Hifi News magazine. Andrew Everard writes – ‘The beauty of the Aries G1.1 is two-fold: first, it’s clear, logical control interface makes setup and accessing even extensive music libraries simple, and second, it imposes nothing of itself on what it’s playing, rather getting out of the way and letting your DAC do its stuff.

Add in the solidity of its design and build, plus the flexibility of its capabilities, and it’s a compelling buy for network music playback‘  Read more…

 

Features

  • 37,500MIPS Processing Speed – CPU performance that’s 50% faster than the original Tesla G1 processor.
  • 200% Memory & Storage – Twice the system memory and data storage means fluid audio signal processing and support for advanced features.
  • 1GB Memory Cache – An enormous memory cache means reduced network noise and dramatically reduced open circuit time for improved sound quality.
  • Dual Femto Clocks – Dual Femto Clocks have got you covered no matter how you like to connect. With 2 separate, super-accurate clocks cycling on the order of quadrillionths of a second, you’ll enjoy extremely low jitter and better sound. One clock takes care of digital outputs, and the second regulates USB output, so you can be sure your musical signal is always rock-steady.
  • Smart-IR Control – Smart-IR Remote Control lets your AURALiC device map its functionality onto any remote you’d like. Just let the device know which remote you prefer, and all of its operations (play/pause, volume control, track select, etc.) can be assigned to buttons just the way you like them.
  • 1GB Memory Cache – Open network connections and data fetching are prone to noise that can hurt the quality of your audio signal. The Tesla G2 hardware platform dedicates a whopping 1GB of RAM to the task of caching, lowering the frequency of open circuits and helping your music sound better.
  • Dual Purer-Power – The first of two Purer-Power supplies feeds the ARIES G1.1’s processing circuit, LCD display, and storage – whether internal or attached via USB. The second Purer-Power pathway is dedicated to sensitive audio components such as the Femto clock and USB audio output. Both power supplies are galvanically isolated from each other to ensure zero EMI interference between them.
  • ActiveUSB – The second generation of our ActiveUSB provides more than just asynchronous control over USB data for enhanced accuracy and precise re-clocking to reduce jitter. It also bypasses the USB power stream, using its own Purer-Power linear power supply instead. That means dirty USB power — and the EMI noise that comes along with it — is kept as far from the music as possible.

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 G1.1 offers nearly universal connectivity for access to all your digital sources. Tri-band Wi-Fi 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 2 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 G1.1 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.

Dual Purer-Power Linear Power Supplies

We’ve given the ARIES G1.1 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 G1.1 is the music.
