AURALiC VEGA G2.1

The depth of information that the Vega G2.1 can pull out of a signal is remarkable; it really delivers the full picture to the extent that it’s hard to imagine how things could be much better.
— JASON KENNEDY, HIFI+, JUN 2021

 

Every aspect of the VEGA G2.1’s engineering has been designed to push the boundaries of sonic performance, reshaping data into a vibrant, emotionally rewarding musical performance — but its engineering is only half the story. The always-evolving architecture of the VEGA G2.1 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 it features favorite AURALiC features such as on-device playlists, memory caching, gapless playback, and bit-perfect multi-room functionality. 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.

Upgrades over the Vega G2 

Unity Chassis II

The chassis has been designed as a double enclosure, where an outer case made from high-grade aluminum is supplemented with an inner layer of copper. A high-mass base and enhanced four-foot multi-spring suspension system complete the quiet, noise defeating performance.

Uprated Suspension Feet

The G2.1 internal circuits are physically distributed to enhance overall balance. And with specially designed foot spikes that dampen and absorb vibrations, the G2.1 is always rock-steady, for ultra-smooth signal delivery.

Circuit and Power Supply Improvements

Comes with two ultra-quiet Purer-Power linear power supplies, galvanically isolated  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.
