When the original ARIES Wireless Streaming Bridge was introduced it transformed the digital audio experience, allowing music lovers to stream high-resolution favorites from local and Internet sources over Wi-Fi for the first time. Now we’ve given the ARIES a “G” style makeover that’s bringing a classic device back to the cutting edge.
The G1 update to the ARIES draws extensively from innovative technologies developed for our 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.
Tesla G2: Platform Made for Sound
In 2014 we developed the original Tesla hardware platform with the goal of creating a high-performance, upgradable platform optimized for audio sound quality. Working hand-in-hand with our control interface and innovative software features, it was the most powerful processing platform available for digital music playback and streaming.
Now there’s Tesla G2. 50% faster, with twice the processing resources, Tesla G2 is the hardware powerhouse behind the sonic excellence of the G2 line.
Dual Purer-Power Linear Power Supplies
We’ve given the ARIES G1 two of our 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 the ARIES G1 is the music
CD Playback and Ripping
Still have some love for your old CDs? Not to worry; you can plug a generic USB CD drive into your ARIES G1 then choose to play a CD, rip a CD while playing, or just rip.
As with AURALiC’s Lightning file streaming, our unique CD playback feature uses the same advanced, jitter-reducing Memory Playback technology. CD data is first read, and compared several times for accuracy into the system cache before playing. The result is elimination of potentially induced jitter from the transport, canceling any negative effects from the quality of your chosen CD drive, potentially improving performance beyond what’s offered from competitors’ CD players.
