Auralic Updates the ALTAIR and ARIES Music Streamers

You may be wondering what Auralic could possibly add to their already feature-rich ALTAIR G1 and ARIES G1 Music Streamers. The kitchen sink?

Well, the Auralic G1s in their G1.1 guise have two bits of the new: they support AirPlay 2 and add the company’s high-mass base from their G2.1 series products.

I reviewed the Auralic ALTAIR G1 last year and found it “delivers a finely refined sound that serves the music at play.”

Thanks to Auralic’s Lightning DS iOS app, owners get access to a world of streaming options including Amazon Music, Qobuz, HighResAudio, TIDAL Connect, Spotify Connect, AirPlay 2, and Bluetooth while Roon users can run the G1.1s as a Roon Ready endpoint.

The Auralic ALTAIR G1.1 and ARIES G1.1 will be available mid-August for $3,249 each.
