no longer for sale

EXQUISITE, STATE-OF-THE-ART, CLASSIC BLACK, FLAGSHIP MUSIC SERVER

The Aurender W20 is flat-out the most advanced, best performing, cost-no-object, audiophile server available on the market. At a whooping 42 pounds, this work of art is an astonishing engineering marvel and is built like a tank, with gorgeous aesthetics, and musicality to die for.

The photographs are of the actual listed product offered for sale.

The unit is in exceptionally perfect, new-like condition – indistinguishable from a new unit just taken out the factory sealed box. I am the original owner. The unit was purchased in 2015.

The 12T Byte W20 server supports a myriad of outputs, inclusive of AES/EBU x 2 (Dual-Wire), an ultra clean Audio Class USB, conventional RCA and BNC S/PDIF, and an Optical interface. It includes highly accurate OCXO oscillators and a FPGA based Phase-Locked-Loop, and supports provisions for an external WORD clock for the ultimate in jitter-free performance.

The W20 completely eliminates AC power related jitter by automatically switching to its internal LiFePO4 batteries to supply the power to the audio components during playback, recharging them during when in non-playback mode. Not only can you access your external NAS based music storage devices, and stream high resolution TIDAL and MQA files, but the ultra quiet, massive 12T Byte hard drives cache your playlist to a Solid State Drive and shut down before playback, for a dead quiet playback experience – no hard drive spin noise whatsoever. And the fan-less design insures that the playback is absolutely pitch-black quiet.

The W20 supports all sorts of formats, inclusive of your high resolution and native 2x DSD files. Use the native Conductor App with your iPAD, or run the optional ROON app as you wish. See the links below for more information about this audiophile marvel – it’s hard to find anything that comes close to the Aurender W20’s design and performance.

Cashier’s check or Wire only. Unit ships upon bank fund clearance. Shipping and insurance is the responsibility of the buyer.
