Overview

The Aurora is a wireless music system from iFi Audio. It brings together a unique collection of proprietary technologies to deliver a sonic experience unlike any other table-top, all-in-one system.

Clad in bamboo and elevated by a distinctive aluminum frame, the Aurora’s design is striking. The aesthetic was created by French product designer Julian Haziza, who was inspired by the architecture in Tokyo’s Omotesandō and Harajuku districts. Six drive units nestle behind the bamboo fins that curve around the Aurora’s sides, with two bass radiators underneath. The system’s control panel sits front and center, with touch-sensitive controls and an OLED display inlaid with bamboo.

The Aurora’s name is inspired by its sound. It delivers a remarkably expansive soundstage, tailored to the space in which it sits. It fills the room with sound as the Aurora Borealis fills the sky with light, electrifying your music and immersing you in the performance of your favorite artists.

Breathtaking Bluetooth
The Aurora uses Bluetooth 5.0 – the very latest version with the newest Qualcomm 5100 series chipset. It also incorporates the super smooth ESS sabre DAC chip.

All the latest 24-bit-capable Bluetooth audio formats are supported, including Qualcomm’s aptX Adaptive and aptX HD, Sony’s LDAC and Huawei’s HWA. Other codecs covered include regular aptX and aptX Low Latency, AAC (the favored format of Apple iOS devices) and SBC (the ‘plain vanilla’ Bluetooth codec).

This means that every possible source device is covered, at the highest resolution its Bluetooth audio specification will allow.

Wireless Signal Processing
iFi pushed the wireless signal processing inside the Aurora to be the best it can be. It combines quality components and state of the art engineering to ensure Aurora performs to the best of its abilities at all times.

PureEmotion
At the Aurora’s heart lies iFi’s proprietary amp technology called PureEmotion. It’s a hybrid circuit design comprising several key stages.

It incorporates classic valve-based pre-amplification and advanced solid-state power amplification with ultra-fast switching. This fusion of amp technologies enables a sound with pure tone and a high level of engagement, speed and dynamic gusto. It captures the full emotive quality of music. 

Automatic Room Tailoring
The Aurora incorporates a ‘room correction’ system called ART (Automatic Room Tailoring). At the press of a button, six ultrasonic sensors measure the distance to the surrounding walls using ultrasound. Then, a 32-bit ARM Cortex microprocessor adjusts the output from the driver array to tailor Aurora’s performance. Whether the Aurora is in a large room or a smaller one, in a corner, or against a wall, it always performs at its best.

SoundSpace
The Aurora’s custom-made driver array combines with iFi’s SoundSpace matrix, which adjusts the output from specific drivers at certain frequencies. SoundSpace is fundamental to the Aurora’s immersive, room-filling performance. It enables the soundstage to extend beyond the confines of the cabinet with expansive width, height and depth. This gives music a sense of scale and space.

TrueBass
The TrueBass system incorporates two downward-firing bass radiators. This ensures the Aurora delivers genuine bass with realistic depth and definition. Dual-level depth control means you can adjust the bass response according to taste – down to a deeply impressive 27Hz – so that everything from timpani, to a bass guitar, to an electronic bass line is conveyed with power and poise.

All of the above technologies operate entirely in the analogue domain to ensure maximum fidelity, without resorting to DSP (Digital Signal Processing) which can have an adverse effect on the purity and resolution of sound.
