AURALiC introduces an update to its award-winning G2 and GX Product Range: Series G2.1

The G2 Series now stands as one of AURALiC’s most successful projects. 

AURALiC is proud to introduce the next evolution in the development of its products. The AURALiC engineering team has developed G2’s next evolutionary step, embodied by the all-new: AURALIC

Details on improvements made to the new G2.1/GX.1 series

The G2.1 Series casework now features a double enclosure, or “chassis within a chassis, where the outer casework is manufactured from high-grade aluminum and an additional internal enclosure is made from copper.

The balanced weight distribution design found internally in the original G2/GX layout remains unchanged, but a newly designed suspension spike system further isolates the product from external mechanical vibration. 

Potentially harmful vibrations are absorbed within the six-coiled-spring, acoustically calibrated core of each foot, with each spring tuned to a different tension point, resulting in greater sound clarity and a more open sound field through vibration damping at separate frequencies, yet again providing for enhanced sonic performance.

While external changes to the series are certainly welcome, internal circuitry modification could not be ignored. 

For the ARIES G2.1, the USB output has been transformed into a more universal category of application, allowing for a broad level of compatibility across most manufacturers’ USB inputs. 

The HDD port, for local hard drive connectivity, has been given a power boost to handle a broad range of USB drives requiring higher power delivery. 

CD Playback and ripping the latest from Lightning streaming

We couldn’t ignore the importance of additional features offered by the tried and tested Lightning OS, now in its seventh iteration. As requested by our customers, Lighting OS 7.0 will provide CD playback with optional ripping capabilities. Customers can use a CD drive connected via USB to the AURALiC product. Lightning’s CD function will read each disk sector several times to ensure ultimate data accuracy, then save to memory cache prior to playback. This makes for a completely jitter-free CD playback experience, besting other standalone CD players at far higher prices.

Lightning Link Continuity 

One aspect of the overall G2.1/X.1 design that remains unchanged, and for good reason, is AURALiC’s Lightning Link protocol, making connectivity between G2/GX devices and G2.1/GX.1 an uninterrupted feature, so that owners of both G2 products and the newer generation of G2.1 products can be connected together for seamless functionality in one system.
