The Aurender ACS10 is a device designed to eliminate the reliance upon computers and other IT products for the management of digital media files. Its primary functions are what any audiophile needs when using a file-based playback system and are consolidated within the ACS10 with attention given to the simplification of the tasks at hand. It can be used as a companion to an existing Aurender Music Server and it will greatly expand its functions and flexibility. That said, the ACS10 could also be used as a fully-functional server and streamer controlled by Aurender Conductor and delivering a digital output via an Audio 2.0 USB port designed to be connected to an external dac. However, the highest audio performance is realized when using the ACS10 mated with models A10, N10 or W20. For Aurender users seeking to add the functions of cd ripping, expanded storage and backup and meta-tag editing the ACS10 is the ideal companion. Customers seeking that same functionality in a stand alone one box server / streamer solution can use ACS10 in that way as well.
Integrated Flagship Dual-Mono DACs with full Discrete Linear Power block • Balanced (XLR) / Unbalanced (RCA) Audio Outputs • Dual 768KHz/32bit Next Generation Flagship AK4490 DAC Chip • Volume adjustment from app, IR remote or front panel rotary control
FPGA-based Precision clock generation system with world-class jitter-reducing clock generator. Precision clock generation system incorporating Field-Programmable Gate Arrays (FPGA) with sub 100fs world-class jitter-reducing clock generator precisely times digital audio data transmissions and minimizes jitter to below negligible levels
Designed to keep the noise system noise level as low as possible Full linear power and special shielding prevent noise from being delivered to sensitive DACs for the best sound reproduction. Four Individual Toroidal Power Transformers for Server / Digital / Dual DACs Fully Isolated Asyncronous USB audio block to protect noise
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.
4TB Hard Disk Drive Storage with Solid-State Drive Cache for Playback Internal hard drive provide 4TB of storage and a 120G 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.
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) /Windows7 or 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.
