Auralic Aries G2 Wireless Streaming Bridge

  • Product Code: ARIES G2
  • £3,899.00

The Auralic ARIES G2 includes all the rock-solid connectivity and one-of-a-kind features found in the original award-winning ARIES, and builds on them by introducing original engineering designs focused on isolation, separation and protection against interference. Not just a big brother to the ARIES, the Auralic ARIES G2 is an enhanced streaming device endowed with cutting-edge technologies and proprietary innovations. Whether on its own or working in consort with other Auralic G Series devices from Auralic, the ARIES G2 is for music lovers who require the most discerning approach to modern streaming.

Lightning Streaming

Like all streaming-capable AURALiC products, the Auralic Aries G2’s expansive functionality and connectivity options are thanks to its native integration of AURALiC’s custom-built Lightning Streaming technology. Lightning Streaming uses your existing network to create a dedicated music streaming environment capable of processing and streaming the highest resolution musical formats available, including DSD512 and PCM 32bit/384k. Lightning Streaming brings with it all the audio network functionality you’ve come to expect from Auralic devices too, like Gapless Playback, Memory Caching, Bit-Perfect Multi-Room, and Upsampling.

Lightning Link

Lightning Link is a low-jitter, bi-directional 18Gbps coupling that takes advantage of high-speed HDMI-type hardware connectors to provide a superior level of transmission control, making today’s ultra-high resolution digital music shine like never before.

Different from the I2S standard, the bi-directional Lightning Link opens the door to jitter-free operation of all the devices in your system. Clocking information from destination devices such as the VEGA G2 can drive the ARIES G2 timing for example, providing perfect data synchronization. Lightning Link also carries system control data for everything from volume control to processor engine setup, allowing all linked Auralic devices to appear in a single, unified control interface.

Tesla G2 Platform

The Auralic Tesla G2 platform is the revamped heart of the Auralic ARIES G2, and it packs a processor that's 50% faster than the Tesla G1 platform, with twice the system memory (2GB) and data storage (8GB) of the previous generation. Tesla G2 not only handles the Most demanding audio formats with ease but drives the Auralic ARIES G2's software processing engine and it's advanced DSP functionality, including upsampling duties and a bigger memory cache for a exacting level of sonic quality and stability. As Always, automatic updates keep the Auralic ARIES G2 up to date with the latest feature set and support, continually expanding its functionality and ensuring peak performance.

Digital Audio Galvanic Isolation

Physically separating electrical circuits while allowing data to flow between them, Digital Audio Galvanic Isolation in the Auralic ARIES G2 offers a new level of protection against electromagnetic interference. Auralic created two soecial high-speed galavanic isolators and configured them between three primary circuits in the Auralic ARIES G2. Noise-sensitive Femto Clock and digital audio transmitter systems, as well as the central processing circuit are completely isolated from each other, eliminating jitter and contributing to an unparalleled level of clarity.

Dual Linear Purer-Power

Auralic's Purer-Power technology already re-examined every detail of power delivery with innovative wiring and circuit designs based on the concepts of isolation and purification, and it was a key to the pristine operation of the Auralic ARIES. Now, the Auralic ARIES G2 takes that approach a step further by using two internal Purer-Power linear power supplies, separating and protecting distinct power circuits from interference. The first Pure-Power supply feeds the Auralic ARIES G2'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.

Dual Femto Clocks

Auralic have retained the use of two Femto clocks in the Auralic ARIES G2 for incredibly detailed signal handling. The first clock drastically reduces jitter across the AES/EBU, Coaxial and Toslink outputs. But timing issues can affect sound quality from output via USB too, so theer's a second Femto clock dedicated to the USB controller in the Auralic ARIES G2. No matter which route you choose, you'll benefit from extremely precise timing and low jitter thanks to these super accurate clocks.

Unity Chassis

The Auralic ARIES G2 is housed in a completely redesigned enclosure - The Unity Chassis. It's machined from a single billet of aluminum and specifically designed for the premium lineup of Auralic G Series products, right down to mass balancing and the shape of it's foot spikes. The Unity Chassis excels at shielding the inner workings of the Auralic ARIES G2 from EMI and providing superior dampening and absorption, reflecting the obsessive attention to noise reduction throughout the G Series.

Optional Internal Storage

The Auralic ARIES G2 connects to all your favourite sources of high resolution digital music, no matter where they are. But if you prefer to store your music locally, there's an internal drive bay capable of housing any 2.5" HDD/SSD. With an internal drive installed the Auralic ARIES G2 becomes a powerful and flexible streaming music server, ready to deliver an exceptional audio experience.
