    The pic makes it look bigger than it actually is. And stunning the G line really is.
    I'm happy for your decision to get yourself one Joey and I do know the feeling.
    I don't use the coax out, just toss and RCA for tv and streaming tv. Both of those sound very nice too.
    Congrats again..

    And, I'm happy to score Joe's hand me downs! :smile:

    So unfortunately my unit has to go back. There is an issue with the screen, probably the least expensive item on the unit. There are scan lines showing on the screen. Tried all ways to reset to no avail. Couldn’t find ANYTHING online where someone had the same issue. Posted the issue on Auralic’s support site.
    Got this response from the president of Auralic:

    The display module is not installed properly and mostly the FPC cable on the back or was damaged during transportation. What we usually do is to replace the entire display module in case there is any potential problem. Please contact your local distributor and have this problem fixed.

    So it’s gonna go back to Auralic. Fortunately Walter is such a stand up guy, not only did he send me a prepaid UPS label (which as I understand it in these situations, are the buyers responsibility) but he also going to assume liability for the faulty unit and send me a new one ASAP.
    Underwood hifi folks. Nice knowing that the dealer is customer centric.

    So I’ll be packing it up tomorrow and be very sad because other than the screen, the unit has been absolutely stunning. The sound has been transformative in my rig.

    I’ll look forward to getting a new one back up and running.

    I can't believe I'm the only one intelligent enough to figure this out. There's nothing wrong with that display. That's a music player and those lines are the "staff". The horizontal lines and spaces that each represent a different musical pitch or in the case of a percussion staff, different percussion instruments. You probably paid extra for it to display that option.

    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😂😂
