Designed to be used with THE HIGHEST performance digital-to-analog converters, the Aurender W20 is one of the few Music Players to support external word clocks used in recording studios, and dual-wire mode used by many reference digital-to-analog converters to separate transmission of left and right channels for better fidelity.
With 12TB of (6TBx2) internal hard disk drives and one 240GB solid-state drive cache for playback, the W20 is the perfect solution for even the most extensive high resolution music collections.
Innovative Technology with battery power/dual wire/master clock input
In digital audio, jitter and noise in the audio signal can seriously affect the performance of digital-to-analog converters. The Aurender W20 is the world's first music player to completely eliminate noise from AC power supplies and AC mains through the use of LiFePO4 (LFP) batteries to power audio components. An FPGA-based All Digital Phase Locked Loop system with an Oven-Controlled Crystal Oscillator (OCXO) clock is used to maintain long term jitter to below negligible levels, and specially designed circuitry provides clean, noise-free power to the dedicated USB digital audio output. A solid-state drive cache for playback and extensive shielding using thick aluminum partitions also minimize and eliminate the many types of jitter and noise associated with the use of disk drives for playback.
A Full Range of Digital Audio Outputs and Ports for Network Connectivity,
A SEPARATE LiFePO4 (LFP) Battery Power Supply for Audio Components
AN Internal UPS to protect the storage from the unexpected power outage
AN Oven-Controlled Crystal Oscillator (OCXO) for long term jitter reduction
An FPGA-based All Digital Phase-Locked Loop System
Dedicated USB Audio Class 2.0 Output with Ultra Low Noise Power Circuitry
Isolated and Damped Hard Disk Drives with its own Aluminum casing . These are only some of the amazing features which make the W20 the finest music server in the world!
Brand New and incredibly exciting ,
the Aurender N10 will arrive in Late June 2015.
Incorporating many of the features of the w 20 ,The N10 uses ultra quiet drives to provide its 4 TB of storage . Providing instant connection to outside NAS Drives as well as its own internal memory storage the N10 is the perfect complement to Dacs in the $5000.00 to $ 15000.00 price range.With 85 % of the performance of the W 20 at 1/2the price the N10 is the second best streaming platform we have heard.
For High end streaming afficianados who use a usb Dac the Aurender N100 offers extraordinary performance at an extremely moderate price. Employing most of the technology available in the N 10, the N 100 provides an exceptional interface to even my best DACS .Available with ( N 100H)or without a 2TB drive the Aurender N10 is perfect for those of you who already have a large collection of music stored on Varios NAS drives .
