The Aries G2.1 is the premium version of the Aries G1, featuring an additional internal copper casing to protect the internal components from RF interference. An upgraded chassis consisting of a 1kg foot that features a sprung suspension to help isolate the G2.1 from external vibrations.

As there are fewer components inside the unit there is less interference between the internal components so it offers a wonderfully detailed and dynamic listen. This arrangement allows you to connect the Aries G1 to your chosen DAC and also allow for you to upgrade the DAC in the future to really maximise the performance of your network playback.

Offering playback of locally stored digital music, music streaming services such as Tidal and Qobuz, Airplay and Bluetooth.

Fully controllable via the Auralic Lightning DS app or via Roon the Aries is a breeze to control.

The AriesG1 features a 4" full-colour display that shows the album artwork beautifully, along with the sample rate of the audio you are playing and the time played in the track.

It supports the very highest of file formats with native support for DSD512 at 32bit 384Khz.

With a dual power supply for the optimum in sound performance, the Aries G1 provides the perfect platform for your DAC. It is able to do this due to the clever way that the circuits are galvanically isolated , hugely reducing the effect of EMI within the system, creating a more accurate, dynamic and transparent listen.

The Aries G2.1 feature Auralic's proprietary Lightning Link, which is a HDMI type 18GBPS two-way connection. It is the only true jitter-free connection in the high-end audio market.
