For sale is a mint condition and one-owner Aurender W20 MQA Reference Music Player. Designed and build like a tank, using only the highest quality parts and the latest reference music player technologies. Taken in on trade from a dedicated and meticulous Audiophile, this particular unit is pristine, filled with over a TB of HiRes music and has one year remaining on the warranty.
Please Note, trades are welcomed.
The W20 is the music server of choice for the very finest stereo systems in the world. Designed to be used with high performance digital-to-analog converters, the Aurender W20 is one of the few music servers to support external word clocks used in recording studios, and dual-wire mode AES/EBU used by many reference digital-to-analog converters to separate transmission of left and right channels for better fidelity. However, even without using the word clock input or dual AES/EBU outputs, W20’s battery power supply provides a dramatically lower noise floor for a completely silent background. With 12TB (6TBx2) internal HDDs and one 240GB solid-state drive cache for playback, the W20 is the perfect solution for even the most extensive high-resolution music collections.
