Aurender Introduces N10 Caching Music Server/ Player, Offering On-the-Fly Precision DSD to PCM Conversion by FPGA

Designed to be used with high performance digital-to-analog converters.

Burbank, CA & RMAF, October 2, 2015 - Aurender, a leader in award-winning, high-resolution audio products, introduces the N10 Caching Music Server/Player. Designed to be used with high performance digital-to-analog converters, the Aurender N10 is the only Music Player to support on-the-fly precision DSD to PCM on SPDIF and AES/EBU outputs with user-selectable choice of 88.2 or 176.4 output sampling rate. Enjoy DSD files even if your DAC isn't capable of native DSD playback.


With 4TB of (2TB x 2) internal hard disk drives and one 240GB solid-state drive cache for playback, the N10 is the perfect solution for even the most extensive high-resolution music collections.

The Aurender N10 is equipped with various SPDIF outputs (BNC, AES/EBU, coaxial, optical) and one dedicated USB Audio Class 2.0 output. 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. For network connectivity and file transfers, the N10 comes with one a Gigabit Ethernet port and two USB 2.0 data ports.

Oven-Controlled Crystal Oscillator (OCXO) for long-term jitter reduction

More advanced Oven-Controlled Crystal Oscillator (OCXO) for the greatest jitter reduction. OCXOs are among the most accurate and stable clocks in use today, and are orders of magnitude more accurate and stable than commonly used ordinary crystal oscillators usually found in computers. Temperature changes cause crystal oscillations to fluctuate, which can lead to jitter in the digital audio signal. Moreover, ordinary crystals are much less stable and lose accuracy over time. In OCXO clocks, a very stable, high-grade crystal oscillator is enclosed in a compartment and kept at a constant temperature to prevent jitter from temperature fluctuations. In conjunction with the OCXO is a Field Programmable Gate Array (FPGA) based All-Digital Phase-Locked Loop system precisely times the digital data transmission reducing jitter to near immeasurable levels.

An All Digital Phase-Locked Loop system (ADPLL) incorporating Field-Programmable Gate Arrays (FPGA) with OCXO clocks precisely times digital audio data transmissions and minimizes jitter to below negligible levels.

The N10 also has a powerful proprietary CPU board for precise and effortless data processing. Its full-sized chassis provides enough space to layout circuitry with great attention to detail regarding RFI isolation, shielding and audio grounding resulting in improved resolution and soundstage.

4TB HDD Storage with Solid-State Drive Cache for Playback

Two internal hard drives provide 4TB of storage and a 240GB 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.

Aurender App Packed with Convenient Features for Full-Function Control

Aurender's award-winning Conductor App turns an iPad or Android (Lite Version) into an extraordinary 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 — including TIDAL — a breeze.

Remote Internet Technical Support

Sending a Remote Support Request through the Aurender App allows our engineers to quickly diagnose and fix problems over the Internet.

Available in silver or black finishes, the N10 measures 16.93" W x 3.27" H x 13.9" D. Available now, the N10's Suggest Retail Price is $7,999.
