    MY TAKE: Incorporating a nearly identical feature set and much of the same software abilities as the ACS10, the ACS100 brings an unprecedented level of digital file creation, curation, and management. There are two trays for drives which, like the N100SC, are elective and user-installed. The user can decide to install single or dual drives, determined by the storage capacity desired. - Galen Carol

     

    The ACS100 was developed to be a more cost-effective version of the ACS10 offering many of the same functions as the ACS10.
     

    As a music server/streamer, the ACS100 enjoys operational control via Aurender Conductor for both iPad tablets and Android devices. All the features you’d expect from Aurender like clutter-free direct access to your music as well as app-embedded Tidal and Qobuz subscription streaming services, Spotify Connect, internet radio, MQA Core decoding (optional), CD ripping and advanced metadata editing and library management.


    Storage -

    ACS100 provides two sliding trays located on the rear panel that is designed to hold your choice of HDDs or SSDs for storage. You can install one drive to start and as your storage requirements change, add another or load both for maximum storage capacity.


    CD Ripping -

    Aurender’s CD ripping engine creates the best sounding files in your choice of FLAC, WAV or AIFF codecs. Metadata is automatically retrieved and the album cover art and other metadata can be viewed on the front panel display. A TEAC CD-ROM drive extracts the CD data in bit-perfect fashion in a one-touch operation and places the file in a user-determined folder for immediate playback.


    Tag Editing and Library Management -

    Smart Tag Editor is an application for the modification of various metadata fields allowing the user to correct the files tags to suit their music sorting requirements. A Copy / Move / Delete feature allows for easy transfer of music libraries from various other network-attached devices and can also perform a scan for duplicate file removal.


    Aurender Ecosystem -

    One can use ACS100 as a central server for other Aurender players. Connectivity is accomplished over the network allowing the ACS100 to be placed anywhere convenient. Although the ACS100 can operate as a stand-alone music server/streamer, the best sound quality is achieved when using an N100H, N100C, N100SC, N10, A100, A10, A30 or W20SE Aurender music server/streamer as the main player.

     

    FEATURES -

    • Caching Playback - The ACS100 employs an innovative method of digital audio file playback. Every Aurender uses at least two drives, one or more to store the library, the other for playback. When the user gives the command to play an album, the music moves from the library drive to the SSD caching drive where playback begins. The library drive goes idle reducing both mechanical and electrical noise and lessening wear and tear. With the ACS100 the user has the ability to install SSDs as library drives, allowing both storage and playback of file-based media to be handled entirely by SSDs.
    • Aurender Conductor App Packed with Convenient Features for Full-Function Control - The Aurender Conductor App turns the iPad, Android phone or tablet into a versatile user interface for each Aurender music server. All settings and functions of the Aurender scan be easily accessed through the Settings menu, and the app comes with extensive features to make browsing and playing high-resolution music collections a breeze.
    • ACS Manager Companion App - ACS100 has many features allowing the user to correct mistagged files. A specialized app, ACS Manager is a companion app to Conductor and is used to configure all system settings including CD ripping preferences, Smart Copy, Move, Delete, Duplicate Checker, Smart Tag Editor, and much more.
    • State-of-the-Art Automatic CD Ripping - Aurender’s CD ripping software, which is custom engineered to work with the high-quality TEAC CD-ROM drive, yields shockingly good sounding CD rips! Sophisticated error detection and correction ensures accurate rips technically superior to rips made on a computer.
    • I/O Ports - A USB Digital Audio Class 2.0 output allows ACS100 to function as a music server/streamer when connected to an external DAC. Two USB 3.0 data ports (one on the front panel, one on the rear) allow for fast data transfer to the ACS100’s internal drives. Another USB 2.0 located on the rear panel can be used for thumb or USB storage devices or for connecting to an Acronova Nimbie AutoLoader (optional – third party supplied). An isolated LAN port is provided for direct connection to your router.
    • HDD Storage Capacity for the Large Music Libraries - ACS100 is designed to be customized by the user in terms of storage capacity. The unit is delivered without any drives installed in the dual drive trays so the user must determine the type and capacity of the drives they install. For example, if using two 4TB SSD drives (currently the largest SATA type available), the ACS100 would then have a total music library capacity of 8TB.
    • Power Supply with Integrated UPS - A 19V power supply adapter plus a “supercapacitor” based uninterruptible power supply (UPS) for stabilizing the ACS100 under an abrupt power outage condition.
    • Support for High-Resolution Formats - All major codecs supported. PCM up to 786kHz/32-bit. DSD up to 256 DoP. Native DSD up to 512.
    • 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 88.2 or 96 kHz into DACs that are not MQA certified.
