A New Era for Wireless Streaming

Built on a quad core 64 bit architecture, Auralic’s new Tesla G3 streaming platform delivers eight times the processing capability of its predecessor. Equipped with 4 GB of DDR4 system memory, Tesla G3 can easily handle even the most demanding processing tasks, making it a future proof solution which will fully accommodate the evolving digital audio landscape.

The Tesla G3 platform also employs Direct Memory Access (DMA) technology for its audio input and output channels, enabling all audio-related hardware and software to access the system memory directly. This significantly reduces latency and jitter by 90% compared to Tesla G2, providing more flexibility to fine tune performance and sound quality.

Flexibility to Explore

Aries G2.2 offers multiple streaming options, enabling you to use your preferred music playback software effortlessly. It is compatible with DLNA/UPnP and OpenHome control software like BubbleUPnP and Linn Kazoo, and is certified Roon Ready. Roon Ready certification guarantees compatibility and maximises performance with your Roon system. Enjoy the convenience of TIDAL Connect and Spotify Connect, and experience seamless compatibility with Apple AirPlay 2 protocol. Elevate your music experience with the Aries G2.2, where choice meets premium audio performance.

Next Generation Purer-Power

Auralic’s new Purer-Power low noise power supply design features double the capacity of G2.1 models and even lower noise levels, providing extremely stable and reliable power to the device. Auralic has actually given the Aries G2.2 two Purer-Power linear power supplies. The two power supplies are galvanically isolated from each other, as a result of an 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 will hear from the Aries G2.2 is the music.

Unity Chassis II

The Aries G2.2 chassis has been designed as a double enclosure, where an outer case made from high-grade aluminium is supplemented with an inner layer made from nickel coated copper.

A high mass base and four feet with an enhanced multi-spring suspension system complete the quiet, noise defeating performance of the Aries G2.2’s Unity Chassis II.

Auralic’s proprietary Lightning Link technology repurposes HDMI connectors and cables to provide an extremely high bandwidth (18 Gbps) interconnect between G2.x, G3 and GX components. This high speed connection provides ultra fast two way communication of audio, clock and control signals, which provides a truly jitter-free link. Lightning Link-equipped G2, G2.1, G2.2, G3 and GX components can be linked without worry, allowing them to work seamlessly as one contiguous digital source, for an astonishing musical experience.

Lightning DS

Lightning DS is the ultimate control app designed exclusively for Auralic streaming devices. Experience the power of seamless music management with its user friendly interface, putting you in complete control. Easily browse and play your favourite tunes from various sources, including local files, streaming services and Internet radio. The app’s intuitive layout and efficient navigation make it a must have for audiophiles and music enthusiasts alike.
