Aurender A200 MUSIC SERVER / STREAMER / DAC
An ultra-low-noise USB or coax streaming DAC with 240 GB solid-state cache with dual 2.5" HDD/SSD bays. With RCA analog outputs.
The N200 offers yet another leap in audio performance that one would expect from a new Aurender model. The updates include an all-new low-power Intel quad-core processor, low-noise linear power supply, and increased system memory. A beautiful machined aluminum chassis sporting a 6.9” color LCD display lends the N200 the look of a mini N20.
Also included are all the Aurender innovations you’ve come to expect including the latest-generation Audio Class 2.0 USB and coaxial digital outputs, 2X isolated gigabit Ethernet port, and super-capacitor-based uninterrupted power supply. Aurender has also expanded the options for internal music library storage capacity by providing two user-accessible HDD/SSD trays. And, if you’re streaming 100%, no drives would need to be installed.
All Aurender music servers are controlled by the exclusive app, Aurender Conductor which is supported on iOS and Android.
The N200 digital music server/streamer incorporates technology derived from Aurender's best-in-class models. For example, the solid-state 240GB NVMe caching drive for playback eliminates latency and the potential of drop-outs often associated with using IT storage devices such as NAS and USB drives for music playback. And the dedicated high-performance Audio 2.0 USB digital audio output or SPDIF coax features ultra-low-noise power circuitry to deliver a pristine digital stream to the connected DAC. The N200 greatly benefits from “trickle down” technology from thefar more expensive models making them both deliver audio performance that belies their cost.
Storage, Your Way
If you're an Internet-streaming-only user, why pay for a hard drive you won't use? The N200 has a rear panel tray that can accommodate dual 2.5″ HDDs or SSDs. Either drive is user-installed at purchase, any time thereafter or never.
Similarly, MQA functionality is an in-app purchase allowing for a licensed MQA unfold with a compatible DAC. Not on Tidal? Don't pay for MQA!
If you do use the drives, wear and tear is minimized and the noise floor is dropped by using solid-state drive caching playback using a 240GB NVMe SSD.
Linear Power Supply
A full-linear power supply provides clean and stable power to the CPU and audio output circuitry. Linear supplies are renowned for their ability to deliver a wide dynamic range capability, deep and powerful low-frequency response, and a wide and deep soundstage.
