    Hearing what I do and after using the Vega G2 for a while now, it could be easily priced at twice it's list and be worth every penny and nothing out there in even at that US dollar amount would get me to switch. The Vega G2 is one bad whama jamma.

    The tariffs won't stop people from owning what it is they really want.

    "Sounds of Elegance" is all I hear when playing back files that take up more room on on drives ! (An often heard statement from those with lower quality players that really don't bennefit with much higher ripped files @ 44.1-48k in 16Bit. For those with avg players you probably are good right there! The G2 is loving being fed upconcerted information Hence: "Sounds of Elegance". The A B testing was fun and so revealing coming off the Auralic and as each day goes by another batch of my favorite albums is converted to the "snob family" and as building daily playlists happen, putting those lists into play has me hearing the music like it was the first time ever and sure keeps a grin right above my chin!! 😂

    Happy Listening to all and thank you all who steered me to the Auralic G2. It is a daily treat with zero regrets.

    I know I don't post a whole lot and I'm blaming a good part of that on this dang Vega G2. Nothing short of amazing and still thrilled I made the move. I do look back at the other players I've owned and if not for those players I probably would have never made this move. There was always something in the sound quality department missing with my past players but when my ears heard the G2 it was all over. I would with no hesitation steer anyone that is after ear candy goodness to owning one of these and tasting just that. The thing is one amazing beast!! Other than that, hope all are well and enjoying the music. the beat goes one!!

    My Lumin X1 is fantastic. Of course since you can get multiple Auralic players for what it cost then it better be. I have the first gen Auralic Vega in my HT system, and it is fine.

    Great. It's nice to hear about other units that deliver fantastic sound..even if they cost twice as much. It's only money😂😂

    Ahh the Dark Mode! I'm still there. Can't get past how nice the G2 sounds. The app is great too. The 🐝'wax set the thing on fire!! Still floored over that. Wow!

    Been a year since this amazing player landed in my home and can't imagine life without it. Not a day or night passes without the G2 putting a smile on my face. Was it worth the coin??? Seeing how I auditioned another player (actually 6 of them) but one in particular that retailed out for twice the amount as the G2 goes for and the Auralic out performed em all, I say worth every penny. Wasn't even about the money as I was prepared to roll out as much as I needed to in order to lite my ears up with that quality sound and I found it in the G2. I doubt if I didn't find this forum would I have the gear I do now so to all here that have helped me along the way I extend a huge Thank You and I have appreciated the suggestions. You all rock to me and even though some see things differently here I still hang around every week as what a cool bunch. God bless all you cats and hope for everyone to get to a spot in their journey of being set! I say I am set but if and when some bad as s towers come along that would kill either of the 2 sets I have now and are priced right I just might make a change in that area. As for network players / streamers go...the Vega G2 is home to stay.
    Peace my Polkiez🎩
