Designed for Listeners With Large Music Collections: Transparent-Sounding Aurender X100L High-Resolution Server Features Enormous Storage, Cache Playback, TIDAL Lossless, 2x DSD Ability
A phenomenal high-resolution music server for listeners with large music collections, the Aurender X100L touts 6TB or 12TB of damped internal storage (select from the drop-down menu) and a fan-less switching-mode power supply for aurally superb, noise-free operation. From there, the incredible-sounding X100L heaps on the spoils. Designed for use with USB DACs and NAS drivers, X100L supports 2x DSD (DSF, DFF), WAV, FLAC, ALAC, APE, AIFF, M4A and other major formats at native bit and sampling rates. It streams TIDAL lossless and features an award-winning Conductor app that will have you finding, selecting, and playing whatever you want in mere seconds. A reference-caliber USB 2.0 digital audio output, Ethernet port, and a 120GB solid-state drive for cache playback are all onboard to further exceed audiophile standards. Finally, you'll love the looks of X100L, wrapped in machined aluminum casing and sporting a 3.3-inch AMOLED display that shows song titles, artist names, bit width, and sample rates. And, should any issues ever arise, you can simply send a remote support request via Conductor and an Aurender engineer will quickly solve your problems. This is high-res as it should be. 100% Music Direct Guaranteed.
"The first thing that struck me was the noise floor which sounded lower than I'm used to. There was a notable clarity to the music being played through the X100L that suggested an absence of self-noise."
Reference-Grade Technology Includes Solid-State Drive for Cache Playback
X100L incorporates many innovations originally developed for the higher-priced Aurender S10 and W20 models, including a solid-state drive cache for playback that eliminates latency and drop-outs from NAS drives. If a selected song or album is already cached to the solid-state drive, X100L will play from the internal SSD. This minimizes wear and tear on the NAS drive. Also, by caching songs to the solid-state drive for playback, X100L eliminates music-quality degradation and drop outs caused by non-optimal network connection between the NAS and the streamer. X100L's high-performance USB digital audio output was developed using the same engineering as the USB outputs on the flagship W20.
Conductor App Turns Your iPad into a Colorful Management Interface
Aurender's award-winning Conductor App turns your iPad into a versatile user interface for Aurender Music Players and makes managing, viewing, and playing high-resolution music collections a breeze. All settings and functions of X100L can be easily accessed through the Settings menu of the Aurender App. With the help of Aurender Media Manager (AMM) for PC/Mac, X100L and all other existing Aurender Music server series can display and use meta-tag information of the contents on the NAS the same as the content in the Aurender's internal Storage. Offering unparalleled support, sending a Remote Support Request using the Aurender Conductor App allows Aurender engineers to quickly diagnose and fix problems over the Internet.
Stellar Connectivity Stems to Dedicated USB Audio Class 2.0 Output
Developed using the same engineering as the USB outputs on the flagship W20, a dedicated USB Audio Class 2.0 output delivers an exceptionally transparent, noise-free audio signal. It's also shielded from outside electronic interference. For network connectivity, streaming, upgrades, and file transfers, X100L has a Gigabyte Ethernet port and pair of USB 2.0 data ports for copying files from USB memory sticks. A full linear power supply provides clean and stable power to the CPU circuit and audio output circuit.
