    MY TAKE: Another incredible product from Aurender! The full size N10 offers enhanced performance and flexibility beyond the N100 and X100 models. - Galen Carol
    REVIEWS:

    Inner Fidelity - Editor's Choice 2018 - "If you’re a dedicated digital-audio junkie, or just like having access to the the cloud for Tidal, Qobuz or Spotify as backup to your CD or LP collection, then getting your ones and zeros passed along to your DAC or headphone amplifier/DAC via your laptop or PC may not be the most sonically-outstanding experience that your setup could be capable of delivering. And honestly, is a bit dated in this modern, tech-savvy world of Siri and Alexa. I should know, I was truly happy with a dedicated MacBook Air to run my streaming apps to various DACs and then I tried the Aurender N10 and I was floored at how much better all my locally-stored high-res and streamed 16/44 or 24/96 files sounded. I don’t mean in a subtle way either, this was an order-of-magnitude difference in my personal setup. Not only did I instantly recognize a huge drop in the noise floor, better dynamics and an overall tightening-up of the presentation with more detail coming through, but instruments and vocals seemed to have a more natural flow: sonically, it was like wiping clean a dirty window. Throw in a great control app via iPad in Aurender’s proprietary ‘Conductor’ software, dedicated power supplies, an all-metal alloy chassis with built-in EMI and RF shielding, an internal 256-gig SSD for playback caching and a four-terabyte HDD for storage and you begin to see why using something like a PC which was never designed for audiophile playback suddenly sounds so 1996."- Rafe Arnott
     

    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 offers enough storage space for even very extensive music libraries. The N10 features a full spate of digital outputs allowing flexibility in selecting the output most appropriate for your DAC.

    Adding further value, the Aurender control app allows access to the TIDAL music streaming service! Unlike other services which are limited to mediocre MP3 resolution, TIDAL streams full resolution, CD quality files for exceptional sound quality.


    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 -

    Two internal hard drives provide 4TB of storage and a 240G solid-state drive is used to cache music for playback. If a selected song or album is already cached to the solid-state drive, the hard drive will remain asleep. This minimizes wear and tear on the hard drive. By caching songs to the solid-state drive for playback, electrical and acoustic noise resulting from spinning disks, moving heads and motors are also completely eliminated.


    On-the-fly precision DSD to PCM Conversion by FPGA -

    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.
     

    Designed to keep the noise system noise level as low as possible -

    Dual linear power supplies and special shielding prevent noise from interfering with sensitive circuitry, optimizing performance.


    Full Range of Digital Audio Outputs and Ports 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.


    Aurender App Packed with Convenient Features 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. Conveniently access the TIDAL CD-quality streaming service from within the control app.


    Dedicated USB Audio Class 2.0 Output with Ultra Low Noise Power Circuitry -

    The dedicated USB Audio Class 2.0 output is designed to deliver an exceptionally transparent audio signal free of noise, and is shielded from outside electronic interference. When not in use, the power to the USB Audio output can be shut off depending on the USB DAC’s requirement.


    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.


    Remote Internet Technical Support -

    Sending a Remote Support Request through the Aurender App allows engineers to quickly diagnose and fix problems over the Internet.
