This month, Aurender will add the N100H high-resolutuon music server/player to its line of audiophile-oriented music systems. The N100H has an internal 2TB hard drive and supports the addition of a NAS/USB drive for more storage capacity; the player features SSD cached playback from the internal and external drives. Browse and control your music collection with the Aurender Conductor App, which also integrates the TIDAL music streaming service into your playback experience. The N100H will carry an MSRP of $2,699.
Aurender introduces the new N100H Music Server/Player, which makes managing, browsing, optimizing, collecting and enjoying your music easy and entertaining for everyone--without the typical "Audiophile Clutter" and setup hassles.
The N100H Server/Player accesses and plays music stored on an internal drive and also provides for storage capacity expansion via an external network-attached-storage (NAS) device or USB hard drive. The user can expand their music collection ad infinitum without worrying about the constraints of the internal drive's capacity.
Because the N100H features Solid-State-Drive (SSD) cached playback of the 2TB internal or NAS or USB attached drives (via its 120GB SSD), both internal and external drives simply store music. When music is selected, it's quickly loaded into the SSD cache drive for playback. This technique not only eliminates noise, jitter and vibration, but greatly reduces wear and tear on the main storage drives.
Like other Aurender models, the N100H features a machined aluminum chassis that includes 3-inch AMOLED display that displays information such as artist name and song title or Source Level Meters in the users choice of two color schemes.
The N100H is also designed as a companion to the elegant matching machined aluminum Aurender X725 DAC/Amplifier – simply add a pair of quality stereo speakers to bring high-performance, high-resolution sound to your home, office, RV or boat, and with fewer components and cables than the typical analog system requires.
Remote Internet Support
Like all of Aurender's Music Servers, the new N100H includes one of the industry's most convenient features: Remote Internet Technical Support, which makes troubleshooting simple. Users can simply send a Remote Support Request via the Aurender Conductor app, and engineers will quickly diagnose and fix problems over the Internet.
The Award-Winning Aurender Conductor App
Control the N100N Server/Player with the unparalleled Aurender Conductor App for iPad (or the new Android "Lite" App). The app was designed and engineered in-house by Aurender's software developers to perform optimally and swiftly with very large music collections in mind.
All settings and functions of the N100 can be easily accessed through the Settings menu. The playlist-based app then intuitively allows you to view your collection by Song, Artist, Album, Genre, Composer, Conductor, or Folder. You can also filter these results by Genre, Favorites, and even by file resolution (DSD, 16/24-bit, etc.). The Aurender Conductor App continuously receives praise among press and in the field as one of the best companion Music Management apps available, with lightning-fast browsing and searching.
Fully Integrated TIDAL Functionality
The app also provides integrated access to TIDAL, the high fidelity streaming music service that allows you to play more than 25 million full-resolution lossless music tracks directly on the N100H (TIDAL subscription required).
The N100H with 2TB internal storage and 120GB SSD for caching playback is available in May 2015 ($2,699).
NOTE: Also available is the N100 Music Player with the 120GB SSD for caching playback, but without the added 2TB internal HD ($2,499).
