Auralic ALTAIR is an outstanding DAC with the ability to stream ultra-high-resolution digital music. The ALTAIR Wireless Streaming DAC connects to just about everything, all on its own. It’s a lot of technology in a single box that opens your system to the world.

The ALTAIR is a High-End digital-to-analog converter that takes its cues from the celebrated Auralic VEGA flagship DAC, providing the sonic depth your high-resolution music deserves. With fifteen digital inputs, the ability to stream DSD256 and PCM 32bit/384k over Wi-Fi, the ALTAIR can easily become the central hub of your home audio system.

15 Input Channels. Limitless Possibilities

A multitude of physical connections is just the start for the ALTAIR. It features ports for just about every hardware connection type, but native integration of Lightning OS means the possibilities don’t stop there. Streaming from local network locations is a straigh forward, and online streaming like TIDAL, Qobuz and Internet Radio are all at your fingertips. The ALTAIR is a RoonReady endpoint too, or use Bluetooth, AirPlay, and SongCast for access to all your mobile device and computer services.

Scalable Power, Custom-Built for Streaming Audio

The Auralic Tesla G1 hardware platform is the processing engine that gives the ALTAIR the power and flexibility it needs to meet the demands of modern high-resolution streaming. Designed around a high-performance Quad-Core Cortex-A9 processor running at 1GHz, Tesla G1 sports 1GB DDR3 RAM and 4GB of storage. Automatic updates keep the Tesla G1 platform outfitted with the latest features and support, so your device is always ready for peak performance and up-to-the-minute functionality.

Femto Clock

Based on 120 femtosecond cycles, this extremely precise clock keeps a tight reign on timing for less jitter, and better sound. It’s capable of adjusting frequencies for varying sampling rates too, and with a dedicated low-noise 9uV power supply it’s just as quiet as it is accurate. A specially adapted aerospace-grade crystal is the beating heart that gives our 120 Femto Master Clock its impeccable rhythm.

Flexible Filter

Fexible Filter Mode gives you a nuanced level of control over your audio output. Its four filter modes were developed using a combination of objective data models and subjective testing, with each mode offering a unique array of filters to match the sonic quality of the source. Whether it’s modes to tweak in-band ripple, out-band attenuation, ultrasonic filtering and more, you’ve always got the power to dial in the performance you want.

Purer-Power

The Purer-Power linear power supply reduces DC current noise by as much as 90dB with its power purification module. Using a specially designed transformer and unique wiring that minimizes vibration, noise from Purer-Power is kept below 1uV across the audible spectrum, leaving you to discover the details in your music, down to the last bit.
