July 25th, 2022 – AURALiC is delighted to announce an update for its ARIES G1 and ALTAIR G1 to the G1.1 version. Reflecting their drive to innovate and lead the music streaming market, this update provides exciting improvements for both models.

Engineered to exacting standards, the ARIES G1.1 and ALTAIR G1.1 excel in today’s demanding environment of high-resolution music streaming. Designed and consistently updated in-house, the Lightning streaming platform has led the industry since its release in 2014. Focused on providing the best possible sound and an outstanding user experience, Lightning streaming includes several unique features such as memory cache, CD playback and ripping, and wireless streaming up to 384 PCM and DSD512. The Lightning DS iOS app provides native integration with high-resolution streaming services like Amazon Music, Qobuz, and HighResAudio, as well as other lossless services such as TIDAL, KKBox, and NetEase, providing a world of musical exploration. AURALiC’s Lightning streaming platform also supports TIDAL Connect, Spotify Connect, AirPlay 2, Bluetooth and acts as a Roon Ready endpoint allowing you the freedom to access and control your music however you like.

The G1.1 update brings two new features common to both models. The ARIES G1.1 and ALTAIR G1.1 now feature the high-mass base from our award-winning G2.1 series products. This satin silver base plate improves their overall aesthetic and provides extra vibration damping for better sonic performance.

2 reviews for Auralic Aries G1.1

  1. Terry Scoby

    The Aries G-1 is an exceptional streamer. Easy to use and excellent sound quality. DS Lightning software is much better than Aurender Conductor and other UPnP software, such as BubbleUPnP and Audirvana that I used with other streamers.

  2. Dan Lavender

    I added the G1.1 in my second system and have the G2.1 in my main system. The G1.1 sounds great and has really improved my alternative system! The same functionality and user experience for half the price. In my second system the extra for the G2.1 would not have been worth it, highly recommend the G1.1 for the right set up!
