The brand-new VEGA G2 Streaming DAC benefits from continued research and development at AURALiC to incorporate state-of-the-art technologies such as Lightning Link, Galvanic Isolation, Fully Passive Volume Keep an eye on, ORFEO Class-A Output Module, a redesigned chassis and a lot more. The result is a totally new Streaming DAC that sets a new standard even as achieving the level of musicality that may be a hallmark of AURALiC products.
VEGA G2 has a completely re-designed structure, utilizing AURALiC’s Tesla Platform to buffer, process and carefully control delivery of the source signal to a customized DAC chip. For the first time in the audio industry, it’s a DAC that operates independently of the source signal’s frequency: VEGA G2 buffers data in this sort of way that it has no wish to lock on to the frequency of its source signal.
Never before has a DAC been able to entirely govern timing with its own clocking – in this case those extremely precise Dual 72 Femto Master Clocks. Freed from out of doors limitations, the VEGA G2 delivers completely jitter-free performance.
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 Keep an eye on, making today’s ultra-high resolution digital music shine like never before.
Different from the other HDMI-based I2S connection, the bi-directional Lightning Link opens the door to jitter-free operation of all of the devices in your system connected via Lightning Link. For example, clocking information from destination devices such as the VEGA G2 can drive the ARIES G2 timing for perfect data synchronization.
