N100H: Caching Music Server / Streamer / 2TB Storage / USB Output
N100C: Caching Music Server / Streamer / 4TB Storage / USB and Coaxial Outputs
Less is More
If you’ve ever own a computer audio system, you know that time spent fussing is time lost listening. Consider the alternative – the Aurender N100H or N100C seamlessly replaces your aging computer. Your music will now be stored on the units internal hard drive, available in either 2TB or 4TB capacity with a 120GB solid state (SSD) caching drive performing all file playback for superior fidelity and reliability. Management of your digital music library or Tidal and Qobuz lossless streaming services is simple and intuitive, thanks to our award-winning Aurender Conductor app. And all major digital file formats are supported at native bit and sampling rates. Housed in beautiful machined aluminum casework, either N100 version will compliment your existing system components and deliver a new level of musicality you have to hear to believe.
TYPICAL SYSTEM CONFIGURATION
The N100H and N100C digital music players incorporate technology derived from our best-in-class models. For example, the solid-state (SSD) 120GB caching drive for playback eliminates latency and the potential of drop-outs often associated with using IT storage devices like NAS and USB drives for music playback. And our dedicated high-performance Audio 2.0 USB digital audio output or SPDIF Coax feature ultra low-noise power circuitry to deliver a pristine digital stream to the connected DAC. The N100H and N100C greatly benefit from “trickle down” technology from our far more expensive models making them both deliver audio performance that belies their cost.
Gigabit Ethernet LAN Port for Network Connectivity
For WiFi network connectivity, streaming, upgrades and file transfers, both N100H and N100C have a Gigabit Ethernet Port along with two USB 2.0 data ports for copying files from a USB HDD or USB thumbdrive.
Loading music into your Aurender is simple and easy. You can choose between two simple methods depending upon where you digital music library currently resides.
The Aurender Conductor App Takes Control Of Your Music
The Aurender Conductor App turns the iPad into a highly versatile user interface for Aurender Music Servers and makes managing, viewing, playing and streaming high-resolution music collections a breeze. All permissions, behaviors and functions of the Aurender Music Server / Streamer can be easily accessed through the Settings menu of the Aurender App.
Embedded within the Aurender App are the lossless streaming services Tidal and Qobuz (subscription required). When using a streaming service, Aurender handles the streaming content the same way as files stored internally, so all functions and operations are the same with either library. In fact, it’s easy to combine streaming content into your library of files making all content appear to be one and the same.
MQA Core Decoder (optional in-app purchase)
Aurender’s optional MQA Core Decoder upgrade enables “first-level” MQA unfolding to play MQA files at up to 48 or 96 kHz.
USB HD and NAS (Network-Attached Storage) Support
Best performance occurs when music is stored on the Aurender’s internal storage. However, the Aurender platform is also capable of seamlessly integrating content stored on a NAS or external USB hard drive.
Network Streaming With Solid-State Drive (SSD) Caching Playback
After a song or album is selected from the Aurender Conductor App, that specific music is cached to the 120GB SSD from the internal HDD and the N100 will then playback directly from the SSD. This minimizes wear and tear on the HDD drive as after loading to the caching drive, the HDD goes idle. Additionally, by caching songs to the SDD for playback, it eliminates any sound quality degradation and even drop outs due to a non-optimal network connection from for example, a NAS drive.
Dedicated USB Audio Class 2.0 Output With Noise-Free Power Circuitry
Our dedicated USB Audio Class 2.0 output is designed to deliver an exceptionally transparent audio signal, free of noise and shielded from any outside electrical or RFI interference.
Linear Power Supply
A full linear power supply provides clean and stable power to the CPU and audio output circuitry. Linear supplies are renowned for their ability to deliver a wide dynamic range capability, deep and powerful low frequency response and a wide and deep soundstage.
Remote Internet Technical Support
In the unlikely event you may need technical support, you can do so right from the Aurender Conductor App. Sending a Remote Support Request from our app allows engineers to quickly diagnose and correct problems over the Internet, should they occur.
