We have here
the Aurender N10. One of the very best playback components for music stored on
a hard drive as well as streaming from Tidal or Qobuz. This piece was gently
used by one owner in a smoke free and pet free home. The N10 works flawlessly
after testing in house. It has an 8TB hard drive and sounds excellent. It has
also been upgraded with MQA core decoder.
audio first started to gain popularity, USB was the de facto standard for the
digital audio signal transport. This was simply because computers have USB
ports, not AES/EBU or other SPDIF ports. Unfortunately, USB can be a flawed
protocol for digital audio transmission as it is prone to noise, jitter, and
compatibility issues. Done properly, AES/EBU and SPDIF audio outputs represent
a superior method of audio transmission with nearly universal compatibility,
less jitter, and greater ease and flow to the overall musical
presentation. N10 represents the state-of-the art of these protocols with
its OCXO controlled SPDIF outputs – use them and discover a higher standard
SPDIF and AES/EBU Digital Audio Outputs
BNC, Coaxial, and Optical outputs provide a superior musical presentation. As
opposed to an asynchronous USB connection, where the
DAC pulls packets of information from the player, N10’s SPDIF and
AES/EBU audio outputs push signal out to the DAC at intervals defined
by the on-board OCXO clock. With a clock this precise, trust us, you want to
Crystal Oscillator (OCXO) for Long-Term 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
DSD-to-PCM Conversion by FPGA
support DSD decoding only on their USB inputs and not on SPDIF or AES/EBU.
That’s why the Aurender N10 (and W20) feature an extremely high-quality
DSD-to-PCM conversion by FPGA.
Disk Drive Storage with Solid-State Drive Cache for Playback
drives provide 8TB of storage and a 240G 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 completely eliminated
