AURALiC Altair G1 from The Gramaphone Magazine

’This is a player of superb focus and resolution, and to say it was bettered by my Naim ND555 player when I flicked between the two ( using the grouping facility in Roon) is no criticism: the Naim with its two off board power supplies, runs to about £28,000. The Auralic – at a fraction of that price – delivers a hugely enjoyable presentation unlikely to leave any listener disappointed. The Altair G1 definitely joins the elite group of superior network music devices and is a solid recommendation for anyone wanting to explore this aspect of music playback. It may be the ‘beginner’s model’ in the Auralic range but its performance shows no signs of corners being cut”
