Reference Music Server
The Aurender X100 digital music player supports DSD (DSF, DFF), WAV, FLAC, ALAC, APE, AIFF, M4A and other major formats at native bit and sampling rates. Equipped with a high performance USB digital audio output, Ethernet port, terabytes of internal storage, 120GB solid-state drive for cached playback, the X100 is the ideal solution for playing and storing high resolution digital music collections.
The X100 digital music player incorporates many innovations originally developed for the higher priced Aurender S10 and W20 models, including a solid-state drive cache for playback which completely eliminates jitter, latency and noise from spinning hard drives and compact disks. The high performance USB digital audio output was developed using the same engineering as the USB outputs on the flagship Aurender W20.
Gigabit Ethernet Port for Network Connectivity
For network connectivity, streaming, upgrades and file transfers, the X100 has a Gigabyte Ethernet port along with two USB 2.0 data ports for copying files from USB memories.
Aurender App with Convenient Features
The Aurender App turns the iPad into a versatile user interface for Aurender Music Players and makes managing, viewing and playing high resolution music collections a breeze.. All settings and functions of the Aurender Music Player can be easily accessed through the Settings menu of the Aurender App.
Hard Disk Drive for Storage with Solid-State Drive Cache for Playback An internal hard drive provides up to 6TB of storage on the X100L model and 1TB of storage on the X100S model. Both models have a 120G solid-state drive to cache music for high performance 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, jitter and noise resulting from spinning disks, moving heads and motors are also completely eliminated. Dedicated USB Audio Class 2.0 Output with Noise Free 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.
Fanless Switching Mode Power Supply (SMPS)
A fanless Switching Mode Power Supply delivers stable power to non-audio components and is enclosed in a separate compartment to prevent any interference to other components.
Damped Hard Disk Drives
The internal hard disk drives are damped to minimize vibrations and noise.
Supports Network-Attached Storage (NAS)
The Aurender X100 is able play music stored on NAS devices, should there be a need for more storage capacity.
Remote Internet Technical Support
Sending a Remote Support Request using the Aurender Conductor App allows engineers to quickly diagnose and fix problems over the Internet, should they occur.
"The Aurender is a joy to use. My attitude to computer audio is rather negative, because of its unpredictability and the need for continuous fixes and upgrades. If I were to play the audio files in my system, I would like to use a file player that is as stable as a CD player. The Aurender perfectly meets this requirement. It is small, perfectly designed and built and it offers the kind of sound that should appeal to a large group of music lovers, regardless of how much they want to spend on this type of component. I will go even further to say that the sonic structure it offers is close to my vision of the sound of high-end system components. It is soft, yet not softened; dynamic and palpable. On top of this, there is the outstanding user interface." - High Fidelity magazine. Read full review here.
