Aurender N10 Caching Music Server
The Aurender N10 is designed to be used with high performance digital-to-analog converters. The Aurender N10 is the only Music Player to support on-the-fly precision DSD to PCM conversion by FPGA.
With 4TB of (2TBx2) internal hard disk drives and one 240GB solid-state drive cache for playback, the N10 is the perfect solution for even the most extensive high resolution music collections.
Extremely low noise level
Dual linear power and special shielding prevent noise from being delivered to sensitive DACs for the best sound reproduction.
Multiple digital outputs for network connectivity
Designed to be matched with high performance digital-to-analog converters, the Aurender N10 is equipped with various SPDIF outputs (BNC, AES/EBU, coaxial, optical) and one dedicated USB Audio Class 2.0 output. For network connectivity and file transfers, the N10 comes with one a Gigabyte Ethernet port and two USB 2.0 data ports.
Convenient App for full-function control
The Aurender Conductor App turns the iPad into a versatile user interface for Aurender Music Server/Players. All settings and functions of the Aurender Server/Music Player can be easily accessed through the Settings menu, and the Aurender App comes with extensive features to make managing, viewing and playing high resolution music collections a breeze.
Oven-Controlled Crystal Oscillator (OCXO) for long-term jitter reduction
OCXOs are among the most accurate and stable clocks in use today, and are orders of magnitude more accurate and stable than commonly used ordinary crystal oscillators usually found in computers. Temperature changes cause crystal oscillations to fluctuate, which can lead to jitter in the digital audio signal. Moreover, ordinary crystals are much less stable and lose accuracy over time. In OCXO clocks, a very stable, high-grade crystal oscillator is enclosed in a compartment and kept at a constant temperature to prevent jitter from temperature fluctuations.
FPGA-based All Digital Phase-Locked Loop System
An All Digital Phase-Locked Loop system (ADPLL) incorporating Field-Programmable Gate Arrays (FPGA) with OCXO clocks precisely times digital audio data transmissions and minimizes jitter to below negligible levels.
4TB Hard Disk Drive Storage with Solid-State Drive Cache for Playback
Dedicated USB Audio Class 2.0 Output with Ultra Low Noise Power Circuitry
AMM and NAS(Network-Attached Storage) Support
If you already have NAS set-up, the Aurender N10 is able to play music stored on NAS devices,
AMM(Aurender Media Manager) software is available for Mac(OS X 10.9 or later) now. Windows version will be available later.
You can run AMM software on your platform of choice, please specify the location of your content on NAS then it will automatically find the Aurender in you local network and make a combining music database. It's transparent to the user, so once you run AMM , you can select the music with all the meta-data using the Aurender Conductor App without the knowledge of the location of your music files.
