The integrated DAC wireless WIFI POLARIS amplifier defines the AURALiC brand: Innovative technology, high resolution and musical sound, an efficient user interface. The AuraliC Polaris is a wireless streamer, a music server, a DAC, a pre-amplifier and a stereo power amplifier.
This is the ultimate solution for music lovers looking for high quality streaming from a single compact audio component.
Foldable to all configurations, the Polaris has seven inputs including digital and analog audio Streaming sources.
A very high level digital design:
The AURALiC POLARIS benefits from all the Bit Perfect technologies of these elders and in particular the digital filter "Flexible Mode Filter" which, unlike conventional filters (SHARP, FAST and SLOW), benefits from a natural rhythmic capacity (little pre and post echo ) close to the NOS converters without their noise defects and loss of resolution in the acute medium. Furthermorethis integrated features Femto Master Clock with a very high resolution supporting Quad-Rate DSD and PCM up to 32Bit / 384K. These clocks are supplied by a 9V power supply separate from the rest of the electronic circuit.
A stable and high-power Pre-amp and amplifier section:
The powerful Class D internal stereo amplifier module can provide 120 watts per channel at 8 ohms, 180 watts per channel at 4 ohms continuous power with exceptionally low distortion for the most demanding speakers. The pre-amplifier part incorporates a new technology combining digital volume and analog pre-amplification for the best of both worlds. Thus the pre-amplifier section of the Polaris is dynamic, transparent, precise without dynamic settlement or sound scene, even at low volume.
Interface AURALiC Polaris Lightning DS compatible Roon:
POLARIS uses the award-winning Streaming interface AURALiC Lightning DS compatible Open Home, UPnP. The R & D team provides regular automatic updates with new features that further improve the user interface. Another novelty, this DAC amplifier integrates Roon Audio digital audio library management for an ever-changing musical experience.
