The Auralic VEGA G2.1 Streaming DAC combines high-end DAC performance and feature-rich online streaming, emerging as the heart of your digital source. While it may not house the ARIES G2.1 server capabilities, VEGA G2.1 streaming is based on the Lightning Streaming framework, so favorite AURALiC features like On-Device Playlists, Memory Caching, Gapless Playback, and Bit-Perfect Multi-Room are all at your fingertips.

With support for every audiophile format and resolution up to 32bit 384khz PCM and DSD512, the stellar VEGA G2.1 is the embodiment of what high-resolution digital-to-analog conversion should be.

With a completely new internal architecture focused on isolation techniques via a copper enclosure and an advanced multi-spring suspension system, the VEGA G2.1 continues its ride along the cutting edge.

Advanced galvanic isolation and always-in-control, hyper-accurate Dual 72 Femtosecond clocks contribute to the extraordinary clarity and precision of the VEGA G2.1.

Master Clock DAC

The completely redesigned architecture of the VEGA G2.1 allows it to accomplish something amazing: it is the first DAC ever that operates independently of the source signal’s frequency.

Customised DAC Chip

There wasn’t a DAC chip on the market that could satisfy Auralic's requirements for sonic performance with the all-new VEGA G2.1. That’s why modified Sabre DAC chips were used. These are optimised for audio signal processing of resolutions up to DSD512.

Fully Passive Volume Control

Precise control, distortion free, noise free. The only way to get all three is to painstakingly construct a R-2R resistor ladder network.

Invisible

Eight coil-latch relays remain entirely passive when not in use, drawing no power and producing exactly zero EMI noise. Once set, the VEGA G2.1’s volume control system remains electronically invisible — one more detail that helps the VEGA G2.1 push the boundaries of sonic performance.

Tesla G1 - Scalable Power, Custom-Built for Streaming Audio

Auralic's Tesla G1 hardware platform is the processing engine that gives the VEGA G2.1 the power and flexibility it needs to meet the demands of modern high-resolution streaming.

Designed around a high-performance Quad-Core Cortex-A9 processor running at 1GHz, Tesla G1 sports 1GB DDR3 RAM and 4GB of storage. Automatic updates keep the Tesla G1 platform outfitted with the latest features and support, so your device is always ready for peak performance and up-to-the-minute functionality.

Turn Your Home Network into a Music Streaming Ecosystem.

Auralic developed Lightning OS to be the highest-quality streaming environment you’ve ever heard. A meticulously-crafted software architecture designed specifically to work hand-in-hand with the powerful Tesla hardware platform found in AURALiC streaming products.

Lightning OS is full of cutting-edge innovations that bring your music to life like never before. Connect to all your of high-resolution sources, take control with user apps like Lightning DS or Roon, and meet true audiophile streaming.

Flexibility to Explore

Connect every source you’ve got to the VEGA G2.1 using its full array of ports. Traditional AES/ EBU, Digital Coaxial, and TOSLINK ports are all galvanically isolated for enhanced performance. Access network resources like UPnP/DLNA media servers, high-resolution Internet Services and Internet Radio via Ethernet.

Lightning Link

The HDMI-type, 18Gbps high-speed connection provides ultra-fast two-way communication and boasts the only real jitter-free link in the world of high-performance audio. As an added bonus, G2 and G2.1 products can be linked without worry, allowing them to work seamlessly, as one contiguous digital source for an astonishing musical experience.

ORFEO Class-A Module

Inspired by classic analog circuit designs, ORFEO is capable of driving an array of loads to match the characteristics of a variety of amplifiers.

Using small signal components with excellent linear qualities, thermally balanced and biased into Class-A, ORFEO has the power to drive loads of up to 600ohms while keeping noise low — open loop distortion comes in at less than 0.001%.
