Vega is a next generation digital audio processor and pre-amplifier offering DXD & DSD decoding plus remote control . Developed with the goal of seeking non-compromised sound, with plenty of I/O ports and powerful functions, it will become the heart of your high-end stereo system.

Featuring the Sanctuary Audio Processor as its heart, AURALiC introduces several cutting-edge technologies for Vega: Megahertz upsampling algorithm up-samples all PCM music to 1.5MHz in 32bit; Femto Master Clock provides ultimate clock precision with jitter only 82 femtoseconds (0.082 picosecond). Binding with other AURALiC's patented technologies such as 'ORFEO Class-A module' and discrete 'Purer-Power™ solution', Vega will bring you the ultimate in high resolution music playback.

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 analogue outputs can connect to a power amplifier directly, adjusting volume in digital precision without dynamic loss.

The six built-in filter modes each contain several digital filters optimized for corresponding sampling rate. These filters are solely developed by AURALiC to optimize the listening experience for different music and formats. Vega allows its user to customizetheir listening experience according to different music formats, tuning sound to personal preference.
