I've rated this 9/10 only because it's not new. The unit is in mint condition and has no scratches whatsoever. I'm only selling it because I want to upgrade to Aurender's top-of-the- line W20 server with a Chord DAVE DAC.
The Aurender A10 combines a 4TB HD Music Player with a very high performance D-to-A converter. The Aurender A10 is beautifully built, with an extremely high level of fit and finish. Aurender optimizes its servers for sound quality.
The A10 comes with a very nice remote, but it's meant to be used with an iPad. The Aurender Conductor app is a free download. The Aurender A10 connects to your Local Area Network via Ethernet — a wifi connection is not available for the unit.
Music files can be added easily via computer interface — either with Mac Finder or Windows Explorer — or by direct USB connection, facilitated through the Conductor app. The Aurender A10 can also scan the contents of your NAS (Network Attached Storage) and play files from your NAS (the NAS has to be on the same Network).
If you have your own DAC, the Aurender can connect to it through a USB output.
