Auralic VEGA G2.1 Streaming DAC

Every aspect of the VEGA G2.1’s engineering has been designed to push the boundaries of sonic performance, reshaping data into a vibrant, emotionally rewarding musical performance — but its engineering is only half the story. The always-evolving architecture of the VEGA G2.1 combines high-end DAC performance and feature-rich online streaming, emerging as the heart of your digital source. While it may not house the ARIES G2.1 server capabilities, VEGA G2.1 streaming is based on the Lightning Streaming framework, so favourite AURALiC features like On-Device Playlists, Memory Caching, Gapless Playback, and Bit-Perfect Multi-Room are all at your fingertips. With support for every audiophile format and resolution up to 32bit 384khz PCM and DSD512, the stellar VEGA G2.1 is the embodiment of what high-resolution digital-to-analogue conversion should be.
