Aurender music servers are a unique, appliance-like approach to computer audio which integrate custom designed and engineered hardware with an easy to use, resourceful software App for the iPad, Aurender Conductor. This ecosystem of hardware and software provides no-compromise playback of digital audio files from virtually any file source, including a large internal hard disk drive (HDD) to which music files from an existing digital music library may be copied, along with native integration of lossless streaming "cloud" services such as Tidal and Qobuz. For end users with large music libraries exceeding the available internal hard disk storage space, USB external media may be connected to the rear panel USB data ports provided on each music server, or a shared music folder available on the local area network (e.g., network attached storage) may also be easily mounted to the server and accessed via a network connection. An auxiliary program, AMM, is used with external media sources to scan content metadata and provide that information to the Aurender Conductor App in the same way internal media is presented - otherwise, the user can simply browse by the root folder structure and play back files instantaneously and with ease.
Aurender hardware is differentiated by the following features:
The type and amount of available outputs
The size of the internal storage disk (HDD) and caching disk (SSD)
The width and size of the chassis
The size of the AMOLED display
The power supply used
