AURENDER S10 PDF

The N10 is a good-looking, solidly finished piece of kit. Looking first at the hardware, three 2x9V, 25VA toroidal transformers behind the front panel form the basis of a hefty power supply. These drives, too, are mounted behind the front panel, in a small card frame. Playing cached files from the SSD also eliminates electrical and acoustic noise from spinning disks and moving heads. The circuitry is carried on a large, multilayer printed-circuit board, with a hefty heatsink over the microprocessor and the digital-audio-handling section shielded within a machined-aluminum subenclosure.

But the latest component to take its place on my Townshend Seismic Stand has shaken the order of things to no small degree. Most of the alternatives in this field from Linn, Naim, Olive et al are multifunctional in that they are streaming clients that access music files from a remote drive or have built in ripping capability such as the Naim HDX, they also usually have access to net radio and music services. What makes the S10 interesting is both this dedication of purpose and the shear seriousness with which the company has approached the issue of clock induced jitter.

The Aurender does not work entirely alone, it needs a wired network connection so that it can be controlled with an iPad and so that you can load music onto it from a computer. It can also, it turns out be used, as a streamer for material on attached NAS drives. The user interface is courtesy of the proprietary Aurender app, this shows a list of the albums, artists or tracks that you have loaded.

From there you search for the desired tune and add it to a playlist where the track is lined up for playback. If you are organised of course you can make up multiple playlists to suit your listening requirements in given circumstances, or you could have playlists for each of your current favourite albums.

The playlist software is not as straightforward as iTunes for instance but few things are and I suspect that with practice using it would become second nature.

One concern that was voiced is that you might get stuck with a piece of hardware that ages quickly and therefore loses value. While this is a possibility the fact that the Aurender regularly updates itself means that it will keep pace with technological change for as long as the architecture is capable of supporting that change. I used the S10 primarily with my Resolution Audio Cantata DAC but also gave it a spin with the remarkable Metrum Octave and with both converters it delivered an outstanding result.

A natural, clean, warm and transparent sound that combines the tonal neutrality of digital with the solidity and presence of analogue. Next to the iMac running Decibel via Vertere D-Fi USB cable, and with no other applications running, which is essentially as good as I can get this computer to sound, the Aurender is considerably more solid and realistic as well as being dramatically more engaging. Having watched a documentary about Rush recently Beyond the Lighted Stage, top stuff if you like the band I was inspired to rip my CD of Moving Pictures and see whether it came up to the standard of vinyl.

It achieves this result by delivering strong dynamics and excellent timing alongside the masses of detail that one expects from digital files. Real transparency However even using the hardly shabby Cantata the Aurender kept digging up new stuff.

The difference in detail density was enormous and most of this was low level information, it is more dynamic, has more precise imaging and better timing largely as a result of the lack of noise in the system.

It was at this point in the proceedings that I fount out that Widealab has a blog detailing the full operational potential of its hard and software. There may be better digital transports in the world but I have not encountered one.

“Unquestionably recommend”

A standalone music server is a device capable of storing and playing computer audio files and sending a bitstream to your DAC. The S10 looks right at home in a half-million-dollar system. Two active-matrix organic light-emitting diode AMOLED screens on its front panel normally display two blue or white meters; in its black case my review sample was silver , the S10 looks a bit like a McIntosh component. The S10 measures The S10 is basically a Linux computer with a 64GB solid-state drive, from which music files are read before being played, to minimize jitter. Oven Controlled Crystal Oscillators are used for their extreme precision, to further minimize jitter. All of these functions are also available on the remote iPad app.
