Aurender

The Aurender A30 Caching Music Streamer | CD Ripper | HDD Storage | DAC | Headphone Amplifier is the flagship model from Aurender’s range of analog output digital music players. Like A10 and A100, A30 is, at its essence, a caching music server / streamer with internal storage and control via Aurender Conductor. The Aurender A30 also includes full MQA Decoder technology which enables you to play back full-resolution MQA audio files and streams, delivering the highest possible sound quality of the original master recording. What distinguishes A30 from the others is the pure audio performance and exhaustive feature set. Aurender have designed A30 to be the comprehensive digital focal point of your system providing useful aides not usually associated with a typical music server.

Main Features:

  • Integrated Dual-Mono Full Decoder MQA DAC with Fully Discrete Linear Power Supplies. Aurender engineered 768KHz/32bit dual-mono DAC designed around next generation flagship AKM AK4497 DAC Chipset with dual-mono linear power supplies delivers reference-class fidelity.
  • Flexible Volume Adjustment. When A30 is used as a preamplifier, volume can be adjusted from three locations; the front panel rotary control, iPad app and supplied IR remote control.
  • High-Performance Headphone Amplifier. Incorporated within the topology of the A30 is a high-quality headphone amplifier suitable for use with the finest headphones. Three different jacks can accommodate the popular balanced and unbalanced jacks found on the best headphones and upgraded aftermarket cables.
  • Balanced (XLR) / Unbalanced (RCA) Audio Outputs. Both balanced and unbalanced outputs are provided for interface to a preamplifier or power amplifier.
  • FPGA-Based Precision Clock with World-Class Jitter Reduction. Precision clock generation system incorporaties Field-Programmable Gate Arrays (FPGA) with sub 100fs jitter-reducing clock generator precisely times digital audio data transmissions and minimises jitter to below negligible levels.
  • Linear Power Supply for Ultra-Low Noise Floor. Full-linear power supply and extensive shielding prevent noise from being delivered to sensitive DACs for the best sound reproduction.
  • Linear Power Supply with Integrated UPS. Full-linear power supply with “super capacitor” uninterruptible power supply (UPS) for stabilising the A30 under an abrupt power outage condition.
  • Aurender Conductor App Packed with Convenient Features for Full-Function Control. The Aurender Conductor App turns the iPad into a versatile user interface for all Aurender Music Server/Players. All settings and functions of the Aurender can be easily accessed through the Settings menu, and Aurender Conductor comes with extensive features to make managing, viewing and playing high resolution music collections a breeze.
  • 10TB Hard Disk Drive Storage with Solid-State Drive Cache for Playback. A30’s internal 3.5″ hard drive provide 10TB of storage and a second 480GB solid-state drive is used to cache music for playback.
  • 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.
  • USB and NAS (Network-Attached Storage) Support. The best audio performance occurs when music is stored on Aurender’s internal storage. However, the Aurender platform is also capable of seamlessly integrating content stored on a NAS, external USB hard drive, or thumb drive.
Aurender A30 Caching Music Streamer 2
  • A30 Manager Companion App. The A30 Manager companion app is used to configure all system settings including CD ripping preferences and behaviors.
  • State-of-the-Art Automatic CD Ripping. Aurender’s CD ripping software, which was custom engineered, designed and optimised to work with the high-quality TEAC CD-ROM, yields shockingly good CD rips in WAV, FLAC or AIFF codecs.
  • Massive Storage for the Largest Music Libraries. A30 is fitted with a single 3.5″ 10TB hard drive with capacity to provide enough storage space for even the largest digital music libraries.
  • SSD Caching. Unique to Aurender is its caching system. While music files are stored on conventional spinning hard drives (HDD), playback always occurs from a solid state drive (SSD).
  • 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.
  • Upsampling. The A30 is capable of upsampling non-DSD files to 705.6/768kHz to the analog outputs.
  • User Adjustable Analog and Digital Filters. The parameters of the digital and analog filters are able to be adjusted by the user for precisely fine tuning the sound to best compliment the audio system the A30 is used in.
  • Critical Listening Mode. For best audio performance, circuitry related to panel illumination, cd ripping and other background function can be defeated.
  • 2X Isolated LAN Port. A30 features a 2X isolated LAN port in which to connect directly to your router.
  • Digital Connectivity. Four digital inputs are provided: one RCA Coax, one BNC Coax and two Optical. These inputs allow for the interface of additional digital sources such as a CD transport, DVD player, television etc.
  • USB Connectivity. A30 features two USB 3.0 ports either for super fast copying from a USB storage device, or allow for the interface of a Nimbie AutoLoader (not included) for automated ripping of up to 100 cds.
  • Remote Internet Technical Support. A Remote Support request can be sent through the Aurender App which allows engineers to quickly diagnose and correct issues over the internet.
