Aurender

The Aurender N30SA High-Definition Caching Music Streamer is visually distinguished by both its dual-chassis form factor and wide-screen full-colour LCD display first seen on the A30 and N20. At first glance, you immediately notice its substantial presence, elegance and grace. A visual metaphor of what to expect sonically. However, N30SA’s audiophile essence also lies within its inner beauty. N30SA takes its hardware and circuit topology innovations first explored on the N20 to its empirical conclusion. N30SA goes above and beyond the N20 in terms of noise and jitter reduction, increased dynamics and uncompromised purity of the audio signal.

Main Features:

  • Full-Colour 8.8” 1920 x 480 wide IPS LCD
  • CPU updated to Intel low power Quad-Core with 8GB system memory
  • 8TB Storage SSD and 480GB Caching SSD with rear panel slot for additional drive
  • Audio Class USB 2.0 x 1
  • Double-Isolated LAN port
  • Robust machined aluminium chassis structure x 2
  • Super-Capacitor based UPS
  • Word Clock Input
  • 2 sets of linking cables. 1 x 0.5m and 1 x 1.5m for placement flexibility
  • Physical Separation of Audio Circuitry and Power Supplies. The audio box contains the filtered and isolated USB audio output, plus the SPDIF audio board with all digital output protocols and OCXO clock.
  • Additional Noise Suppression Methods Employed. In addition to removing AC power noise from the outside by converting it into a clean DC power, another major source of outside noise is from the ethernet cable. Like the AC/DC conversion, the N30SA’s LAN ports have similar behavior.
  • OCXO Main Clock. A high-quality Oven Controlled Crystal Oscillator (same as the one in W20SE) is used for the SPDIF outputs in the Aurender N30SA.
  • Word Clock/Master Clock Input. This input allows interface with an external word or master clock which are offered by several high-performance DAC manufacturers. Simply put, a word clock is a device that is given the job of keeping perfect time and preventing digital audio data errors when multiple components are used together.
  • Ultra-High-Quality SPDIF and AES/EBU Digital Audio Outputs. The N30SA’s AES/EBU, Coaxial BNC & RCA, and Optical outputs provide a superior musical presentation due to the superior clock and oscillator.
  • Precision DSD-to-PCM Conversion by FPGA. Many DACs support DSD decoding only on their USB inputs, but not on SPDIF. Additionally, many excellent DACs still in use are non-DSD compliant. That’s why the Aurender N30SA (and W20SE, N20 and N10) all feature this extremely high-quality method of DSD-to-PCM conversion on-the-fly by FPGA.

  • Uninterrupted Power Supply (UPS). At the heart of any music server is essentially a computer, and like a computer, it doesn’t like when its electrical connection is abruptly terminated. In the case of an AC power outage or momentary “brownout”, the N30SA is protected by a clever supercapacitor-based power supply which allows the unit to stay powered on long enough to automatically power down. This prevents the system and hard drives from being corrupted by the loss of AC power.
  • User-Installable Hard Drive Storage with Solid-State Caching Drive for Playback. The N30SA provides unparalleled flexibility in terms of the type and capacity of drive that can be fitted.
  • USB HDD and NAS (Network-Attached Storage) Support. The most streamlined user experience occurs when music is stored using internal storage. However, the Aurender platform is also capable of seamlessly integrating content stored on a NAS, external USB HDD or thumb drive.
  • Upsampling and Critical Listening Mode. N30SA offers the user the ability to upsample any lower resolution content to a user determined sampling rate. Three selections are available to choose from: 44.1/48kHz, 88.2/96kHz and 176.4/192kHz. Since results vary from server-to-DAC combinations, experimentation is in order to determine the best sonic results.
  • Aurender Conductor App Packed with Convenient Features for Full-Function Control. The Aurender Conductor App turns the iPad, iPhone, Android phones and tablets into a versatile user interface for all Aurender music servers. All settings and functions of the Aurender server can be easily accessed through the Settings menu, and Conductor comes with extensive features to make browsing and playing high resolution music collections a breeze.
  • MQA Core Decoder (optional in-app purchase). Aurender’s MQA Core Decoder upgrade enables MQA Core or first unfold allowing playback of MQA files at up to 88.2kHz or 96kHz. This is beneficial if using a non-MQA DAC, as Core Decoding will deliver some of the benefit from MQA encoded content.
  • Remote Internet Technical Support. Sending a Remote Support Request through the Aurender App allows engineers to quickly diagnose and correct problems over the Internet. This service can correct for file, software or firmware issues and is a service provided free of charge.
  • 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 minimises jitter to below negligible levels. The results are sonically audible with better image focus, a wider, deeper, taller soundstage presentation and an uncanny analog-like organic quality.
  • Dedicated USB Audio Class 2.0 Output with Ultra-Low Noise Power Circuitry. The N30SA’s dedicated USB Audio Class 2.0 output is designed to deliver an exceptionally transparent audio signal free of noise and jitter, and it is shielded from outside electronic interference.
