Assembling all the components for a feature-rich, wireless digital streaming Hi-Fi audio system that sounds great can be a formidable and expensive undertaking. That’s why we built an outstanding DAC and gave it the ability to stream ultra-high-resolution digital music. The ALTAIR Wireless Streaming DAC connects to just about everything, all on its own. It’s a lot of technology in a single box that opens your system to the world.

The Altair G1 all-in-one streaming DAC & pre-amp is the gateway into the Auralic streaming world, encompassing Lightning Server, digital to analogue conversion, and pre-amp functionality. The analogue output can be fixed to line-level if the pre-amp functionality isn’t required.

You can connect up an external HDD or an SSD, point it at a network share or it can be fitted with an internal drive to store music. Lighting Server will manage this music & function as a UPnP server
