The AURALiC VEGA S1 represents a sophisticated blend of cutting-edge digital audio technology and high-fidelity sound reproduction, positioning itself as a leader within its price range and drawing heavily from the technological breakthroughs of AURALiC's G2.2 reference line. Here’s a deeper look at the features that make the VEGA S1 a standout choice for audiophiles:

Core Features of the VEGA S1

  • Fusion DAC Technology: At the heart of the VEGA S1 is the proprietary Fusion DAC. This innovative design merges the best attributes of discrete ladder and Delta-Sigma DAC architectures, aiming to deliver the accuracy and musicality of a ladder DAC with the dynamic range and efficiency of Delta-Sigma technology. The result is exceptionally clear and nuanced audio reproduction that remains faithful to the original recording.

  • Direct Memory Access (DMA) and Direct Data Recording (DDR): These features enhance the efficiency and responsiveness of the device by allowing it to store and process audio data directly within the system memory, bypassing slower processing routes. This reduces latency and enhances playback fidelity.

  • Dual 60fs Femto Clocks and Galvanic Isolation: These technologies contribute significantly to noise reduction. The ultra-precise clocks reduce timing errors (jitter), while galvanic isolation prevents noise from electrical interference by ensuring that no electrical current flows between separate sections of the device.

Innovative Technologies

  • PureDAC Mode: This mode allows the VEGA S1 to focus entirely on its DAC functions by disabling all streaming and network-related activities. It ensures that all the device's processing power is dedicated to delivering the highest quality audio playback, enhancing the clarity and detail of the music.

  • Tone Mode Adjustment: Rooted in auditory psychology, this feature lets users customize the harmonic elements of the output, tailoring the sound to personal preferences or specific characteristics of the listening environment. This adjustment can alter the perceived warmth, clarity, and spatial characteristics of the audio.

Connectivity and Streaming

  • Versatile Inputs and Streaming: The VEGA S1 supports a wide array of inputs including USB audio, coaxial, and Toslink, along with Ethernet connectivity for streaming. It is compatible with a variety of online music services like TIDAL, Spotify, and Qobuz through AURALiC's Lightning DS software and supports popular protocols like AirPlay 2.

  • Roon Ready: Pending certification, this feature will integrate the VEGA S1 into Roon’s ecosystem, allowing for enhanced metadata and rich user interface experiences, further enriching its user-friendliness and accessibility.

Optional Power Supply Upgrade

  • S1 External Purer-Power Supply Unit: For audiophiles looking to maximize their system’s audio quality, this optional upgrade replaces the internal power supply with a more robust solution featuring dual transformers and low-noise circuits. This setup ensures complete isolation between the processing and audio sections, reducing noise and enhancing overall sound clarity.

The AURALiC VEGA S1 is more than just a DAC; it’s a comprehensive audio solution that promises to elevate any audio system to the highest standards of sound quality, making it an ideal choice for those who refuse to compromise on their listening experience.

Chord Company dealer feedback

“Absolutely love the speakers. The speakers do show of the recording. If however the recording is not well mixed it will show the listener as well that it was a bad recording. When they did a bond song together. However if you have a well recorded album like London Grammar or Faithless etc the music is not just fun but dynamic and entertaining. Totally recommend these speakers. ”
