The VEGA G2.2, built upon our impressive DAC lineage, houses our Fusion DAC design, Direct Data Recording (DDR), and Galvanic Isolation technologies. It also features a fully analog preamplifier section with a proper analog ladder resistor volume control, delivering an exceptional noise-free signal to our Class A ORFEO output modules. Its groundbreaking Fusion DAC operates independently of the source clock signal. Our DDR technology records audio data into the Tesla G3 platform's memory, which is re-clocked using our 60-femtosecond technology for jitter-free performance. Combining our proprietary digital filtering and oversampling technology with a precise switching network for the final digital-to-analog conversion stage, the VEGA G2.2 delivers superior sound quality. These cutting-edge technologies culminate into a transformative DAC, setting a new standard in digital audio performance.
AURALiC's groundbreaking Fusion DAC design in the VEGA G2.2 combines the finest elements of discrete ladder and Delta-Sigma DAC designs, creating a new standard in audio excellence. This innovative approach involves modifying a high-performance, manufacturer DAC chip by bypassing most of its functions, such as PLL, digital filter, and oversampling circuits. Instead, AURALiC deploys its proprietary clock reconstruction, digital filter, and oversampling technologies, ensuring that only the precise switching network inside the DAC chip is utilized for the final digital-to-analog conversion stage. The result is an extraordinary sound quality that elevates the listening experience to new heights.
The VEGA G2.2 incorporate a highly regarded true analog ladder resistor volume control, which is recognized as the superior method for achieving high-performance audio playback. Unlike digital volume control, which accurately reduces the signal level but cannot address the noise floor, analog volume control reduces both the signal level and noise floor while preserving the system's dynamic range. By employing eight coil-latch relays, this volume control system consumes no power and emits no EMI noise when inactive, ensuring noise-free and distortion-free control. Once adjusted, the system remains electronically transparent, further enhancing the exceptional audio performance of the VEGA G2.2.
