Beskrivelse

When the original ARIES Wireless Streaming Bridge was introduced it 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 a “G” style makeover that’s bringing a classic device back to the cutting edge.

The G1 update to the ARIES draws extensively from innovative technologies developed for our top-of-the-line G2 series, with a supercharged hardware platform and a completely transformed industrial design leading the way. Once again, outfitting your home audio system with state-of-the-art streaming performance and features is more accessible than ever — with the ARIES G1 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.

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.

Flexibility to Explore

The ARIES G1 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, and SongCast control.

 

 

 

 

 

 

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’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.

Dual Purer-Power Linear Power Supplies

We’ve given the ARIES G1 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 is the music.

Tester og omtaler

-HiFiPig (2019)
I bought the Auralic G1 on the recommendation of a fellow reviewer and I’m so glad I did. I heartily recommend it to anyone looking for a stylish, easy to use and neutral sounding server“- Stuart Smith

 

 

 


HiFi Choice (2018)

The Aries G1 is a beautifully realised streaming platform that delivers the Auralic experience to a variety of DACs at an attractive price.

The Ear (2019)

“It’s hard to assess the sound quality of a streamer because it’s dependent on the source and DAC that it sits between but it nonetheless has a character that is revealed when comparisons are made. The first one has to be does it make sufficient improvement to the output of the server, which in this case is the remarkable Innuos Zenith SE, putting the Aries G1 in circuit between that and the ifi Pro iDSD DAC resulted in a much more solid and present sound. Joni Mitchel sounded like she was in the room, a physical rather than ethereal presence compared to the server’s USB output”


Gear Patrol (2019)

“…the Aries G1 makes an excellent high-end server with reference level sound quality. The ARIES G1 offers nearly universal connectivity for access to all your digital sources.”


ON-mag (2019)

“The Aries G1 knows how to make the most of all audio files. Combined with high quality devices that will capitalise on the products capabilities, Aries G1 brings music to your living room. A real favourite.”
-5/5 stjerner


The Hans Beekhuyzen Channel (2018)

“The Auralic Aries G1 is a shockingly well built device that functions and sounds excellent”


AV Tech Media (2018)

‘Focussing on accessing your digital music files from a home or external server and presenting them to an outboard DAC, the Aries G1 is equipped with a USB-A port alongside optical, co-axial and AES outputs to cover all connectivity options. Auralic’s accompanying Lightning Server software provides a peerless way to access music and offers impeccable integration with streaming services including Tidal and Qobuz. While performance is dependent on the DAC it’s partnered with, there’s genuine sense of the Aries G1 enabling the music to express itself, presenting a gloriously transparent sound regardless of file format or style of recording’

-Best Network Media Player 2018


Secrets of Home Theatre & Hifi (2018)

“…..The ARIES G1 wireless streaming transport is a product created based on some of the best engineering know-how that AURALiC has invested in the top-of-the-line ARIES G2. The effort seems to pay off nicely, resulting in a high-fidelity wireless music streamer that is well built, feature laden, and very competent sonically at a significantly lower price. Its streaming operation is smooth and fast, and more importantly it has wonderful sonic performance. Clearly, these two new ARIES (G1 and G2) form AURALiC’s potent one-two punch to meet the market demands of audio enthusiasts with different priorities. With sonic performance that is not far off from what the top-of-the-line product offers, the ARIES G1 is easy to recommend. In fact, it gets my vote for the higher performance-to-cost ratio wireless streaming transporter between the two “
