The ARIES S1 Streaming Processor features their latest technological advancements, offering audiophiles unparalleled sound quality and versatility at a more affordable price, coinciding with the release of the 10.0 software which further improves the user experience with a range of new features designed to enhance sound quality. With these groundbreaking developments, AURALiC can deliver cutting-edge audio solutions for discerning enthusiasts at a great price.

The AURALiC S1 offers a seamless streaming experience through Ethernet, powered by its proprietary Lightning DS software. With support for Apple AirPlay 2, TIDAL Connect, Spotify Connect, and Internet Radio, along with various digital input channels like USB audio, Coaxial, and Toslink, the S1 ensures versatility and convenience in accessing your favorite music sources.

Moreover, AURALiC's Lightning DS software seamlessly integrates popular streaming services such as Amazon Music Unlimited, TIDAL, Qobuz, TuneIn, KKbox, and more, providing a wide range of options to cater to your musical preferences. Additionally, the S1 is capable of playing music stored on NAS drives, USB drives, and CD drives, offering flexibility in accessing your personal music library.

The S1 will soon be Roon Ready upon completion of Roon certification, further enhancing its compatibility and functionality for enthusiasts who utilize the Roon ecosystem. With its comprehensive feature set and commitment to seamless integration, the AURALiC S1 ensures a premium audio streaming experience tailored to your preferences.

The AURALiC S1 series, powered by the state-of-the-art Tesla G3 streaming platform, sets a new standard in audio excellence. Leveraging AURALiC's groundbreaking Direct Memory Access (DMA) and Direct Data Recording (DDR) technologies, the S1 series revolutionizes audio transmission by seamlessly recording incoming audio data into the Tesla G3's system memory and transmitting it directly to the low-level audio hardware. This innovative approach ensures optimal signal integrity and minimizes potential sources of distortion.

With the addition of Dual 60fs Femto Clocks and Galvanic Isolation, the S1 series achieves unparalleled noise reduction, resulting in pristine audio reproduction. Every detail has been meticulously crafted to minimize clock jitter and signal distortion, delivering a remarkably smooth and natural sound character that faithfully captures the nuances of the original audio recording. The result is an immersive listening experience that captivates the senses and brings music to life in a way that is truly extraordinary.

The role of the ARIES S1 has undergone a significant evolution, transitioning from a mere streaming transport or bridge to a robust streaming processor. With its advanced onboard processing capabilities, the ARIES S1 now offers a plethora of processing features aimed at optimising the audio signal: high-quality resampler, parametric equalizer, speaker placement compensation and loudness leveling. For the first time in the ARIES lineup, this product can process incoming signals from digital or USB inputs. Leveraging its onboard Tesla G3 platform, the ARIES S1 processes the signal, effectively removing jitter and artifacts before applying user- selected processing features to enhance the audio quality. The processed signal is then output via digital or USB connection, ensuring an enriched listening experience that remains faithful to the original source.

Optional Upgrade:  S1 External Purer-Power Supply Unit 

For those seeking an even higher level of audio quality, AURALiC offers an optional upgrade: the S1 External Purer-Power Supply Unit. This unit bypasses the internal power supply of the ARIES S1 and VEGA S1, doubling the power capacity for enhanced performance. Featuring two dedicated transformers and Purer-Power low noise power supply circuits, the upgraded unit ensures a total galvanic isolation between the Tesla G3 processing circuit and audio circuits. This separation eliminates interference and minimizes noise, resulting in superior sonic performance that elevates your listening experience to new heights.
