Procesorius SIRIUS G2.1
As a specialized enhancement product, SIRIUS G2.1 stands as the fourth addition to the award-winning G2.1 Series of AURALiC products. As a system, the G2.1 stack, comprised of ARIES G2.1, VEGA G2.1, LEO GX.1 and SIRIUS G2.1 now represent one of the most advanced digital sources available for your high-performance system today. SIRIUS G2.1 improves and optimizes signals from all sources, whether they are high-resolution files or streams from an inferior source or format. With SIRIUS G2.1, compressed, lossy, and poor recordings all have the potential to be improved, thereby upgrading your overall experience. Because SIRIUS G2.1 utilizes an open standard protocol, it can also be connected to any brand of DAC, delivering a global variety of sample rates and formats among other functions and features. SIRIUS G2.1 will provide universal balance to a world of varied formats, resolutions, DAC chip topologies, and algorithm types.
A World First
SIRIUS G2.1 provides multiple inputs and outputs, allowing you to connect to a variety of digital sources and DACs. AURALiC’s spirit of innovation continues to put forth market-first features, as exemplified by SIRIUS G2.1’s unique ability to deliver an upsampled DSD signal to any compatible USB DAC, the first product in the world to do so.
The Power of Digital Processing
SIRIUS G2.1 is powered by the AURALiC Proteus G2 Co-Processing Platform; which harnesses a Xilinx XC7A200T FPGA chip at its heart, bolstered by 512 MB of DDR3 memory. This FPGA chip contains more than 200,000 logic cells and 740 DSP slices, all combining to provide unparalleled levels of data processing capability. SIRIUS G2.1’s computational power and efficiency are achieved in part because of the design decision to employ a dual-processing platform structure, which doubles capacity. While an AURALiC Tesla G1 handles hardware control, the Proteus G2 focuses its efforts on music data processing.
More to Control
Smart-IR is just that – a smarter solution for controlling your SIRIUS G2.1. As with all AURALiC products, Smart-IR allows you to control certain functions of the SIRIUS G2.1 from any number of different remotes you already own. For example, you may program a remote to quickly switch between the four different digital filters by assigning a filter to individual buttons on that remote. This function is easily accessible in the SIRIUS G2.1 menu structure and provides you with yet another way to control not just SIRIUS G2.1, but your entire G2/2.1 stack.
