Chinese manufacturer AURALiC launches VEGA, which they are calling “the next generation digital audio processor developed with the goal of seeking non-compromised sound”
With a Sanctuary Audio Processor at its heart, AURALiC introduces several “new and cutting edge technologies” with VEGA: ‘Megahertz upsampling’ algorithm processes all PCM music to 1.5MHz in 32bit; ‘Femto Master Clock’ provides “ultimate clock precision” with jitter of only 82 femtoseconds(0.082 picoseconds).
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 analog outputs can connect to a power amplifier directly, adjusting volume digitally and without dynamic loss. VEGA has six built-in filter modes allows users to customize according to different music formats and personal preference.
