Let's hope they solved the cover art issues as that was always the biggest problem with Aurender and NAS !

Not sure if this would be a contender for auralic aries, maybe price will still be far away...but looks promising!

 

Pros:

- good and stable software

- aurender proven track record

- very polished design and good interface and display.

 

Cons:

- lacks outputs (only usb).

- not open to standards and other controllers.

The N100 should be at CES this coming week, along with other products shown on the Aurender website.

 

Our first shipment of N100s is due to arrive in about a week.

One of the reasons I haven't considered their servers is that they are relatively low powered and don't allow for uses like DRC and upsampling to hires at the server. Doesn't look like the new streamer allows for this from the server either, if you can only use it with their app.


Main listening (small home office):

Main setup: Surge protector +_iFi  AC iPurifiers >Isol-8 Mini sub Axis Power Conditioning+Isolation>QuietPC Low Noise Server>Roon (Audiolense DRC)>RPi4 (dietpi)>Kii Control>Kii Three >GIK Room Treatments.

All absolute statements about audio are false :)

Yes, these new streamers have full cover art and meta data compatibility from a NAS.

The N10/N100 will support streaming through WiMP / Tidal after CES (the software update is under development). This is great news for anyone interested in lossless streaming (who isn't :)

It would be good to get one that has less:

 

No graphics, no harddrive, etc.

I could be wrong but I don't think the N100 model has hard drives ?

They only have USB out (so no etc either)

 

by 'graphics' I guess you mean the OLED display ? the associated development is already done on earlier models so not sure that removing it would make the price much cheaper (and it's one of the nicer displays)

Both the N100 and N10 will have a 1TB internal SSD-harddrive as an additional option.

Are you refering to what music services the new Aurender streamers will support? As far as I know - so far - WiMP / Tidal.

It seems to me that being low on power is a necessity to keep electrical noise down. At least some reputed designers follow this principal.

the aurender problem is that they gather server, storage and player in the same machine. I can only speculate that this took them extra measures and costs, to create enought isolation and keep the noise down. On the other side, it's very practical for high end retailers to be able to quickly connect and demonstrate with minimal setup.

I hope this software update will be available for all Aurender devices and not just for N10/100 devices exclusively.

I learned about Aurender N100/N10 almost a month ago from friend in Burbank, CA. I sold my Lumin as my Devialet already has a (Magic Wire ha ha marketing techno babble) DAC and didn't want the redundancy. I emailed suggestion to Lumin months ago that a smaller Lumin w/ large caching drive, w/o on-board dac and outboard P/S would likely have market in fast changing server/streamer market. Prices of SSD drives will continue to drop and soon enough spinning platters will be as antiquated as the old floppy drive and NAS with large SSD's will be ubiquitous.

The software is being updated to provide this capability to other models such as the X100 and W20 as well.

Yes, absolutely. I have had the beta software on the X100L and W20 here for some time.

When will they permit cover art on that OLED display. As simple as this may appear, I love this aspect of Audirvana on my MBP.

A valid question, although trying to see that from across the room would be difficult at best. The text screen of the song name, etc. tends to be the most preferable, although the new firmware about to be released also enables the VU meter display (blue or amber) instead.

 

The iPad app displays the cover art quite nicely.

I would much rather have album cover art than a completely useless blue or yellow VU meter!

 

Although it will not be large in size, it likely would be very similar in size to Audirvana, Sony, PS3 Audio display.

 

Nothing would force one to keep album art displayed as one could change to the VP meter or text only display. That's the beauty of at least offering it.

The VU meter display was an easy transfer over from the S10 and W20. I rarely use it, but it's there. Displaying album covers could be provided if enough Aurender owners requested it.

 

One other option is to turn off the display during playback.

Likely early days but can you tell us the primary difference between the N10 and 100? Is it the of addition the 1Tb SSD? (Which is a very desirable option to me)

 

Thanks
