Blog: Simple, Effective & Inexpensive Ways To Improve Your Streaming Experience


The Auralic Altair G1 is for the more value conscious audiophile looking for a multi-role component with an emphasis on sonic performance.  It combines Auralic's Lighting streaming platform with a high quality ESS Sabre 9038Q2M based Digital to analog converter, and a volume control. Stream Tidal, Qobuz, Airplay, from your NAS, an external hard drive, or add your own SSD internally to the Altair.

Premium Digital Hub

The Altair G1 acts as a premium digital hub for any high-performance system, the ALTAIR G1 software and hardware functions in much the same way as the original ALTAIR, able to act as a preamp, a DAC, a streamer, and an all-in-one digital source, but is also now fitted with the G1 chassis, providing a matching 4-inch color display and Smart IR feature. 

Wireless Streaming DAC

As a wireless streaming DAC, ALTAIR G1 has received several updates from both the G1 and G2 series of products. It now uses the ESS 9038Q2M conversion chip, providing the user with more detail and perceived resolution than ever before. To match the higher levels of performance available from this new DAC chip, the analog circuitry received necessary parts upgrades and an improved layout for a balanced presentation.
Finally, the processor platform has been upgraded to that of the G2, featuring 2GB of system memory and speeds of 25,000 MIPS, providing the user with a seamless, powerful experience.

Internal Storage Option

An internal storage option remains, and for a fee an upgrade kit can be provided to the dealer or the customer, allowing for robust, local storage of large music collections in any number of formats and resolutions.
As a digital hub, the ALTAIR G1 still functions as a Roon Endpoint, can stream subscription music services such as Tidal, Qobuz and Spotify, and offers Bluetooth, Airplay, and SongCast for a multifaceted and varied set of feature needs.

Pair with a high quality amp and speakers and you have an uncluttered high performance audio system.
