Description

Auralic Vega

Auralic Vega supports all high resolution music formats including DXD(352.8KS/s, 384KS/s in 32bit) as well as DSD stream at 2.8224MHz and 5.6448MHz. Five digital inputs include AES/EBU, coaxial(set of two), toslink and USB. The balanced and single-ended analogue outputs can connect to power amplifier directly, adjusting volume in digital precision without dynamic loss.

The Flexible Filter Mode embedded inside VEGA has six modes, each contains several digital filters optimised for corresponding sampling rate. These filters are solely developed by AURALiC to optimise the listening experience for different music and format. VEGA allows its user to customize according to different music formats, tuning sound best to personal preference.

AURALiC Sanctuary Audio Processor

Sanctuary audio processor, the heart of VEGA, is based on multi-core ARM9 architecture with calculating capability at 1000MIPS which is ideal for handling multi-channel high resolution music. AURALiC also introduces the second generation ActiveUSB ™ to VEGA that separates the USB PHY into a discrete chip to future reduce EMI  from computer. Resorting to these technologies, VEGA not only support DXD format(352.8KS/s and 384KS/s PCM signal in 32bit) but also able to decode DSD stream at 2.8224MHz and 5.6448MHz in native though ‘DoP V1.1’ transmission standard.

Flexible Filter Mode

The Flexible Filter Mode technology inside VEGA has six built-in modes each contains several digital filters optimized for corresponding sampling rate. These filters are developed under AURALiC’s subjective auditory sense and objective testing data relationship models which is to optimise the listening experience for different music and format. The linear phase filter exhibits perfect in-band ripple and out-band attenuation performance while the minimum phase filter is better for enjoyment as it has no ‘pre-ringing’ effect. There are also slow roll-off filter and several noise filters for native DSD conversion. To maximum usage of these filters, VEGA allows its user to customize according to different formats, tuning sound best to personal preference. Please download the technical white paper of Flexible Filter Mode for detailed information.

Femto Master Clock

The objective of Femto Master Clock  technology is to give DAC and upsampling circuit an ultimate clock with extremely low jitter and low phase noise. It utilizes aerospace grade crystal oscillator, ultra low noise linear power supply and temperature compensation technology to generate master clock with extremely low jitter at 82 femtoseconds. What’s more important, the phase noise which affect sound quality a lot has been dramatically reduced to –168dBc/Hz. VEGA has three level of clock precision for customer to choose, with the highest grade ‘EXACT’ mode, it will give the purest reference clock. Driving by such amazing clock, VEGA can easily reproduce the music details in the ‘last bit’, represent a rock solid stereo image you may never experience before.
