Auralic Aries G1.1 Streaming Transporter (digital out only)
The new G1.1 version of our groundbreaking ARIES wireless streaming transporter is ready to deliver high-resolution streaming music to your home audio system. Drawing on cutting-edge technologies from our premier G2.1 line, the ARIES G1.1 can stream audiophile-grade resolutions up to DSD512 and PCM 384 wirelessly. Connect natively to the best music services like Amazon Music, Qobuz, Tidal, KKBOX, and HighResAudio using our 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 our 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 we’ve given the ARIES our G1.1 upgrade, keeping our most accessible streaming device on the cutting edge.
Our G1.1 update to the ARIES draws extensively from innovative technologies developed for our 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.
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.
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.
37,500MIPS Processing Speed
CPU performance that’s 50% faster than the original Tesla G1 processor.
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.
