ACS10 sounds cool but I like ripping CDs to a computer. The computer is a hub from which I transfer music files to my Aurender N100, external HD, another HD I keep offsite, mp3 player, and phone. I don't have a NAS. I'm not sure the ACS10 will be as versatile in that sense.

 

Agree with Mazza, it would be nice to be able to edit metadata in the Conductor. Am I the only one who transfers albums from computer to Aurender, then sees the metadata's wrong, deletes the album from Aurender, corrects the metadata on the computer, then copies the album to the Aurender again? Seems crazy and I must be missing something.

Heh Jef_N, have same workflow as you ..... music files get copied all over the place, so good point, the ACS10 not so useful in such situations. 

 

I have same issue as you, many albums meta-data files need to be altered to suit the Aurender and the alterations seem to be specific to the Aurender vs much more 'tolerant' other devices. Also, if the meta-data doesn't suit it sometimes won't show a track at all and with no warning either ...... HDtacks downloads seem to be one of the worse offenders.

I welcome the ASC 10.  I find the process of ripping CDs to a computer frustrating, time consuming, and the results hit-and-miss.  This largely has to do with my comparative incompetence with all things computer.  So maybe the ASC 10 is targeted to folks like me.  I appreciate that $5,500 is a lot to spend to avoid compute hassles, but I am sorely tempted anyway.  Will the ASC 10 also make digital downloads easier?

I'm having trouble understanding whether the ASC-10 will make changing Metadata easier or harder.  I have probably changed 20-25% of my Classical album covers to reflect the original LP cover art.

Well they have in the UK, not sure about the US.

 

Checked this morning and Qobuz is back up on the App.

 

Strange.

Thanks for the link. Looks even better in the video.

I have a N10 connecting to a devialet 220 pro via AES cable. I want to further improve SQ. I just come across a master clock called Grimm audio cc1, which provides reclocking for AES signal. Does anybody have experience on using AES signal reclocker with aurender N10 and does  it makes sense to improve SQ? Thank.

@panda123456 I honestly don’t think the effort will be rewarding with two already “top end” devices and a 2ft inter-connect, but I’m interested in you findings...

Visit the DevialetChat forum there are a good number of posts concerning reclockers there.

All the music I have downloaded is in FLAC and then converted to AIFF, so yes.

Can I ask what program you used to convert FLAC to AIFF?

@rwwjr44 I did try to find useful information from DevialetChat. Unfortunately, the option to use relocker or reclocker is limited to roon compatible device, usually a combination of a NAS, SOtM, mutec then AES to Devialet but it involves too many connections and Roon is not a must for me. TotalDAC may be simpler but it seems Aurender is still the best of the market.

The best tweaks seem to be a great platform, and great footers, then the best cables and equipment that you can afford. Always, always listen before you buy.

 

+1. Well said, rwwjr44.

Hi all, not sure anyone has noticed.  For a small purchase via the Conductor app via Apple App Store, the MQA Core Decoder are now available on the Aurender (except S10).  It can now perform the first unfold of Tidal Master and send out to DAC at the maximum of 24/96.  (For those of you who do not own any MQA DAC, the upgrade is worthwhile.)

Can anyone tell me how to rearrange album art on the home page of the Aurneder N10?  When down loaded, the albums are all in the library, but I would like to rearrange them.  Thank you.
