The AURALiC VEGA G2 takes everything that made the original VEGA a standout while representing something entirely new. Original engineering designs focused on isolation and separation guard against the slightest attack on sound quality. Cutting-edge technologies and proprietary innovations offer expanded functionality and ultimate integration with the G Series family of products. If you’re looking for the next reference DAC that demonstrates the future of integrated musical data processing that maintains an impeccable dedication to quality, look no further than the VEGA G2.
Like all streaming-capable AURALiC products, the VEGA G2’s expansive functionality and connectivity options are thanks to its native integration of AURALiC’s custom-built Lightning Streaming technology. Lightning Streaming uses your existing network to create a dedicated music streaming environment capable of processing and streaming the highest resolution musical formats available, including DSD512 and PCM 32bit/384k. Lightning Streaming brings with it all the audio network functionality you’ve come to expect from AURALiC devices too, like Gapless Playback, Memory Caching, Bit-Perfect Multi-Room, and Upsampling.
Along with the VEGA G2 and the G series of products from AURALiC, we’re also introducing a browser-based interface for configuring Lightning Streaming and its features, allowing
universal access for the first time from any smart phone, tablet, or computer. In addition to compatibility with AirPlay, the VEGA G2 is a certified Roon Ready endpoint for seamless integration with Roon software, adding yet another element to its flexibility.
When working together with the AURALiC ARIES G2 and other G2 series products, such as SIRIUS and LEO, the VEGA G2’s incredible power and tightly synchronized functionality elevates your setup to a cutting-edge streaming digital audio system.
Lightning Link is a low-jitter, bi-directional 18Gbps coupling that takes advantage of high-speed HDMI-type hardware connectors to provide a superior level of transmission control, making today’s ultra-high resolution digital music shine like never before.
Different from the I2S standard, the bi-directional Lightning Link opens the door to jitter-free operation of all the devices in your system. Clocking information from destination devices such as the VEGA G2 can drive the ARIES G2 timing for example, providing perfect data synchronization. Lightning Link also carries system control data for everything from volume control to processor engine setup, allowing all linked AURALiC devices to appear in a single, unified control interface.
The 72fs Femto Master Clock is just as quiet as it is accurate, with an extremely low -169dBc/ Hz of phase noise and a 100Hz offset noise level of only -118dBc/Hz, thanks in part to its low-noise 3uV dedicated power supply.
Lightning OS takes full advantage of the Tesla Platform’s considerable resources by buffering enough data to make the input signal’s frequency irrelevant, allowing the VEGA G2 to govern all processing with that super-accurate 72fs Femto Master Clock. It’s a configurable setting too, from 0.1s to 1s, so a smaller buffer size may be set for higher quality sources.
electromagnetic interference. We’ve designed a high speed galvanic isolator that’s configured between primary circuits in the VEGA G2. The noise-sensitive D/A converter, Femto Clock and analog circuit are isolated from the central processing circuit, eliminating EMI noise and contributing to unparalleled sound quality.
Inspired by the classic Neve 8078 analog console circuit design, the ORFEO Class-A Output Module found in the VEGA G2 is capable of driving various loads, matching the characteristics of different power amplifiers. ORFEO uses small signal components with excellent linear characteristics, thermally balanced and biased into Class-A to achieve open loop distortion of less than 0.001%. In the VEGA G2, ORFEO has been optimized for lower noise while maintaining the ability to drive 600ohm loads without increasing distortion.
AURALiC’s Purer-Power technology already re-examined every detail of power delivery with innovative wiring and circuit designs based on the concepts of isolation and purification. The ARIES G2 takes that approach a step further by including two internal Purer-Power linear power supplies, separating and protecting distinct power circuits from interference. The first Purer-Power supply feeds the VEGA G2’s processing circuit, LCD display, and network interface. The second Purer-Power pathway is dedicated to sensitive audio components such as the D/A converter, the Femto clock, and the analog circuit. Both power supplies are galvanically isolated from each other to ensure zero EMI interference between them.
The VEGA G2 is housed in a completely redesigned enclosure – the Unity Chassis. It’s machined from a single billet of aluminum and specifically designed for the premium lineup of
AURALiC G Series products, right down to mass balancing and the shape of its foot spikes. The Unity Chassis excels at shielding the inner workings of the VEGA G2 from EMI and providing superior dampening and absorption, reflecting the obsessive attention to noise reduction throughout the G Series.
