A100 is a budget-friendly follow up to the popular Aurender A10. A music player with a high performance MQA enabled digital-to-analog converter, 2TB of internal hard disk drive and one 120GB solid-state drive cache for playback, the A100 is the perfect solution for those replacing CD players or seeking one-box simplicity.Designed and conceived as a comprehensive and cost-effective source component for the digital music streaming enthusiast, the A100 offers much of the same performance and features of the more costly A10 from which it is was modeled.
A100 is, at its foundation, a streamer with support for both TIDAL and Qobuz subscription-based high-resolution streaming services and internet radio. The A100's MQA Full-Encoder DAC provides optimal perofmrnace for streaming 10,000+ MQA albums on TIDAL.
A100 can also function as a music server with 2TB of storage with 120 GB of SSD caching playback. Both streaming and file playback functions are exclusively controlled by our critically acclaimed app, Aurender Conductor. Hailed by reviewers worldwide for its speed and intuitive operation, Conductor was designed with managing large music databases in mind and provides exceptional browsing and searching of your music collection.
A100 can perform streaming, cached file serving, file storage, and preamp functionality using the A100's DAV-level volume control. Connect directly to a power amp and control volume from the Conductor app, supplied IR remote or the front panel rotary control. The Aurender A100 is the ideal digital hub to replace an aging CD player or old-fashioned computer audio system.
Integrated Single Stereo Design DAC with Fully Discrete Linear Power Supply
• Single-ended/ Unbalanced (RCA) Audio Outputs
• 768KHz/32bit Next Generation Flagship AK4490 DAC Chip
• Volume adjustment from app, IR remote or front panel rotary control
FPGA-Based Precision Clock with World-Class Jitter-Reducing Generator
Precision clock generation system incorporating Field-Programmable Gate Arrays (FPGA) with sub 100fs world-class jitter-reducing clock generator precisely times digital audio data transmissions and minimizes jitter to below negligible levels
Designed to Keep the System Noise Level as Low as Possible
A full linear power supply along with special shielding prevents noise from being delivered to sensitive DACs for the best sound reproduction. Three individual toroidal power transformers are used for the music server, digital circuitry and DAC. Fully isolated asynchronous USB audio output is also designed to block spurious noise
