High Performance Digital Output Network Transport with Automatic CD Ripping / Library Management / Metadata Editing and Massive Dual-HDD Storage Central Server Hub for Large Libraries

“Aurender is trying to kill your computer.” – AudioStream

Designed and developed to eliminate the reliance upon computers and other IT products in your digital audio
system, the Aurender Content Server (ACS10) unifies the activities of CD ripping, Network Attached Storage (with RAID mirroring), and advanced library management/metadata editing with exceptional USB audio output.

Not only does ACS10 excel as a stand-alone Digital Transport with the same filtered & isolated USB
audio output found on the most high-end Aurender models, the included ACS Manager companion app incorporates advanced library management utilities right from your iPad or Android tablet.

A CD-ROM drive and ACS’s reference quality CD Ripping engine authors the best sounding files from your CDs in your choice of FLAC, WAV or AIFF codecs. Metadata is automatically retrieved and fully editable if desired.

Music collectors with massive libraries or more than one high-end system in the home will appreciate ACS10 as a Central Server Hub for other Aurender players. Connectivity is accomplished over the network, allowing the ACS10 to be conveniently located in your main audio system or in a separate location.

Key Features

Reference Quality Automatic CD Ripping

ACS is for the music lover looking to convert a collection of CDs to a file-based format in the highest quality available. Enjoy lossless, error-corrected CD rips using ACS’s optical drive and customized audiophile CD ripping engine.

Metadata Editing and Library Management

Like any precious collection, Music Libraries need curation. The dedicated ACS Manager app allows the user to manage, catalog, and groom a vast library for easy access. Browse your library with pride again.

Aurender’s Dedicated USB Audio Output

USB is historically prone to transferring noise between devices. That’s why Aurender’s dedicated USB Audio output is physically and electrically isolated from the noise-generating CPU board to minimize noise in the sensitive audio interconnect.

Audio Grade Linear Power Supply with UPS

Clean power is the single most important factor in enjoying your favorite music with the highest fidelity from a digital source component. ACS10features a fully linear power supply block for a low noise floor, allowing the nuances and detail of your music to sing out. Super Capacitor UPS system protects your Aurender in case of abrupt loss of power.

Central Server Hub

Do you have more than one system in your home? Think of ACS as your musical “mothership” where your music library lives. Other Aurender systems on your network can stream your library from ACS seamlessly. With ACS handling the content storage/server tasks, your other systems run nice and light for superior audio performance.

Massive Built-In Storage Capacity

ACS10 ships standard in a 2 x 8TB RAID1 configuration, where the 2 HDDs are set up as mirror images of one another in case of drive failure. However, if you require more capacity, ACS can be easily reconfigured to make use of the full capacity of both drives. Need even more storage? Special order ACS10 with up to 2 x 14 TB HDDs!

Nimbie Auto-Loader Compatibility

For large CD archival projects, connect an Acronova Nimbie Auto Loader (sold separately) for automated batch ripping.

Future-Proofed Processing Power

The ACS system incorporates significant processing power and system memory designed to maximize headroom for expanded functionality now and in the future.

Hallmarks of Aurender

Hardware <> Software Integration

A closed system. Aurender playback and control software is developed in the same building as its hardware. Superior integration means that Aurender’s software engineers are able to specifically optimize playback performance of the extremely robust hardware at their disposal.

Caching Playback Engine

Other systems buffer. Aurenders cache. Every Aurender model features a massive solid state memory from which all playback occurs. This important feature helps to minimize system resource requirements for enhanced audio performance and stability.

Dedicated USB Audio Output

USB is prone to transferring noise between devices. Aurender’s dedicated USB Audio output is physically and electrically isolated from the noise-generating CPU board to minimize noise in the sensitive audio interconnect.

Low-Power High-Efficiency CPU

A powerful CPU is essential to making any computer run smoothly and quickly. However, with more power comes more noise. Aurender’s low-power high-efficiency Intel CPUs have enough headroom to run the machine while minimizing the amount of current drawn in order to keep the noise floor as low as possible.

Elegant Front Panel Display

Easy to read high resolution LCD display. Dynamic, elegant, understated.

Double Isolated LAN Port

Two layers of transformer based isolation to filter noise out of Ethernet connection.

Local Library Storage Capacity

Every Aurender contains either massive built-in internal storage capacity, or at least one slot for super easy user-installable storage options. Enjoy localized media storage, and ditch the cumbersome NAS or HDD.

Integrated Streaming Services

The entire world of streaming music content is available to you within one great app. Enjoy integrated access to TIDAL, Qobuz, and Internet Radio. Plus Spotify Connect and AirPlay.

Critical Listening Mode

Enable Critical Listening Mode to defeat the front panel screen, buttons, and all background computing activity that is not essential for playing music. CLM offers an even quieter, more transparent audio presentation.

USB HDD and NAS Connectivity

The best user experience occurs when your music content is stored on Aurender’s internal storage. However, USB 3.0 data ports and NAS share connectivity are included in order to play or import content stored on a NAS, external USB hard drive, or thumb drive.

Support for All Major Audio Codecs & Formats
Remote Internet Technical Support

In case you should encounter any difficulty or problems, Aurender’s dedicated support team may log into your system remotely to diagnose and fix any issues. We take support extremely seriously, and we’re here to help!
