ARIES G2’s connectivity options and streaming performance are thanks to its native integration of AURALiC's custom-built Lightning Streaming technology. Lightning Streaming is a purpose-built software architecture designed to work hand-in-hand with the powerful Tesla G2 hardware platform found in the ARIES G2.
Created from the beginning as a framework for high-end audio, Lightning Streaming has always been a system focused on sound quality. It works by using existing Wi-Fi to create a dedicated music streaming network capable of wirelessly delivering the highest resolution musical formats available, up to DSD512 and PCM 32bit/384k.
Lightning Streaming is the foundation for reliable streaming performance, but it's also the technology that makes many AURALiC features possible: Gapless Playback, Memory Caching, Bit-Perfect Multi-Room, and upsampling are all Lightning Server integrations.
When using the Lightning DS control app to operate the ARIES G2, you're taking full advantage of everything it and Lightning Server can do, unlocking even more features like on-device playlists and real-time stream data.
