When Auralic introduced the original Aries Wireless Streaming Bridge, it transformed the digital audio experience, allowing music lovers to stream high-resolution favourites from local and internet sources over Wi-Fi for the first time. Now Auralic has given the Aries a G-style makeover that’s bringing a classic device back to the cutting edge.
The G1 update draws extensively from innovative technologies developed for their 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 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.
On-Device Playlists, Memory Caching, Gapless Playback and Bit-Perfect Multi-Room functionality are among the features found in all Auralic streaming devices, and with support for Spotify Connect, AirPlay, and Roon Ready, the Aries G1 connectivity is more expansive than ever. Improved hardware offers a serious boost in performance, making it a perfect choice for streaming audiophile-grade resolutions up to DSD512 and PCM 32bit/384k.
Ultra-quiet, zero interference
Auralic have also given the Aries G1 two of their 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 your Aries G1 is the music.
