2015CES - AURALiC Adds DSD256 Streaming Capability to ARIES Wireless Bridge

The ARIES High-Resolution Wireless Bridge now offers streaming DSD256 [Quad-Rate DSD], putting the streamer on the bleeding edge of technology.

CES 2015 January 6, 2015 - AURALIC North America Inc. and its parent company, AURALIC LIMITED, are pleased to be the first to offer DSD256 [Quad-Rate DSD] music streaming over Wi-Fi. This technology, though not available yet commercially, is four times the rate of DSD and doubles the resolution of DSD128 (Double-Rate DSD). It's also the most cutting-edge high-resolution recording format.

The upgrade, available via firmware, is the latest in a series of ongoing improvements to AURALiC's Lightning DS Control Software, introduced at last year's CES, and its ARIES Hi-Res Steaming Bridge, which connects to a consumer's DAC via USB and continues to be the industry's only system able to stream DSD, Double-Rate DSD and DXD wirelessly.

\"More and more DACs will be supporting DSD256 in the future, and we are excited to be able to accommodate the format now,\" says Xuanqian Wang, CEO of AURALiC. \"By adding DSD256, we hope to illustrate our continuous support of the Lightning DS streaming platform and the most current technologies available.\"

The addition of DSD256 capability follows AURALiC's recent integration of TIDAL full-resolution music streaming to ARIES, thereby eliminating the need for a computer connection to access the service. USB playback is another function recently added to AURALiC's streaming platform.

AURALiC will continue to support its customers by adding more functionality to the ARIES Wireless Bridge in the future.

Based in Vancouver, Washington and Beijing, China, the U.S subsidiary AURALIC North America Inc. and its parent company, AURALIC LIMITED, are passionately committed to designing, engineering and manufacturing user-friendly audio components that combine modern audio technologies with superior design and functionality, providing music lovers with a new way of enjoying music.

Yale Real Living™ Assure Lock™ with Bluetooth

The new Yale Real Living™ Assure Lock™ with Bluetooth replaces conventional keys with digital keys accessed through the Yale Digital Keys app for Android and iOS mobile devices, and through an app for the new Samsung Gear S2 smartwatch. The Yale app allows homeowners to unlock doors, send keys to others, control when others have access, get a message when someone enters, and revoke a digital key at any time. Unlocking the deadbolt couldn't be simpler, whether using the Samsung Gear S2 or a smartphone. With the new Samsung Gear S2, touch the watch app to activate the digital key, then touch the lock screen to unlock the deadbolt. With a smartphone, Yale's "Twist and Go" technology allows the user to hold the phone vertically when approaching the door, then twist it 90 degrees to unlock the deadbolt. Homeowners can also unlock the deadbolt using its capacitive touchscreen and a four- to eight-digit code.
