Auralic Altair G1 Streaming DAC

£2,299

As a premium digital hub for any high-performance system, the Auralic Altair G1 software and hardware functions in much the same way as the original Altair, able to act as a preamp, DAC, a streamer and a all-in-one digital source, but is also now fitted with the G1 chassis, providing a matching 4-inch colour display and Smart IR feature. As a digital audio streamer the Altair G1 has received several updates from both the G1 and G2 series of products. It now uses the ESS9038Q2M conversation chip, providing the user with more detail and perceived resolution than ever before.

To match the higher levels of performance available from this new DAC chip, the analog circuitry received necassary parts upgrades and an improved layout for a balanced presentation. Finally, the processor platform has been upgraded to Tesla G2 from Tesla G1, featuring 2Gb of system memory, providing the user with a seamless, powerful experience. An internal option remains, and for a fee  an upgrade kit can be provided, allowing for robust local storage of large music collections in and number of format and resolutions. As a digital hub, the Altair G1 still functions as a Roon end point, and can stream subscription music services such as Tidal, Qubuz and Spotify Connect, and it offers Bluetooth, Airplay, and Song Cast for a multifaceted and varied set of feature needs.
