Four years after the release of the original ARIES, this groundbreaking streamer is getting a high-tech upgrade in the brand-new ARIES G1 Wireless Streaming Transporter. Infused with AURALiC technologies and designs developed for our premier G2 line, the ARIES G1 connects over Wi-Fi to digital sources like network attached storage, Internet streaming services like TIDAL and Qobuz, Internet Radio, and USB drives to bring high performance streaming to your home audio system. On-Device Playlists, Memory Caching, Gapless Playback and Bit-Perfect Multi-Room functionality are among the features found in all AURALiC streaming devices, and with support for Spotify Connect, AirPlay, and Roon Ready, ARIES G1 connectivity is more expansive than ever. Improved hardware offers a serious boost in performance in the ARIES G1, to make it a perfect choice for streaming audiophile-grade resolutions up to DSD512 and PCM 32bit/384k.
The Aries G1 is a dedicated streaming transport, offering superior dual power supplies. Each power supply runs a different element of the Aires, they’re so quiet, all you’ll hear is your music.
Aries G1 can be plugged into any DAC through its array of digital outputs, we’ve found that it is the perfect partner to the Vega G1.
Aries G1 features lightning Server, USB HDD input and numerous technologies derived from our state-of-the-art G2 series. Unlike the Altair G1, the Aries G1 has no internal drive option available.

"The Aries G1 is a beautifully realised streaming platform that delivers the Auralic experience to a variety of DACs at an attractive price. If you have a DAC, this is the most transparent way to add network music streaming to your system and leads the way in this field."
"The ARIES G1 wireless streaming transporter is a product created based on some of the best engineering know-how that AURALiC has invested in the top-of-the-line ARIES G2. The effort seems to pay off nicely, resulting in a high-fidelity wireless music streamer that is well built, feature laden, and very competent sonically at a significantly lower price. Its streaming operation is smooth and fast, and more importantly it has wonderful sonic performance. With sonic performance that is not far off from what the top-of-the-line product offers, the ARIES G1 is easy to recommend. In fact, it gets my vote for the higher performance-to-cost ratio wireless streaming transporter between the two."
"If you want to hear what streaming is really all about you need a good streamer, the Aries G1 is a good streamer, no doubt about it."
