Auralic Altair G1
The Auralic Altair G1 is the latest incarnation of the Auralic Altair and features the new G1 style and casework. This all-in-one streamer/DAC/pre-amplifier represents a high-value entry-level audiophile introduction into the word of Auralic!
Auralic Altair G1 includes a chipset upgrade to ESS 9038Q2M and a processor platform change from Telsa G1 to G2 with 2GB of system memory. Internal storage can be optioned in to the unit, and connectivity remains strong with Tidal, Qobuz, Spotify Connect, Bluetooth, Airplay, SongCast and Roon endpoint capabilities.
As a premium digital hub for any high-performance system, the ALTAIR G1 software and hardware functions in much the same way as the original ALTAIR, able to act as a preamp, a DAC, a streamer, and an all-in-one digital source. ALTAIR G1 is now fitted with G1 chassis, providing a matching colour display and SMART IR feature. Also worth of note, the new ES9038Q2M conversion chip providing the user with more detail and perceived resolution than ever before.
