Does Aurender A10 buffer streaming content to SSD before playing?

Does anyone know if Aurender A10 buffers streaming content (like Tidal MQA) to its SSD before playing, like it does with content sourced from its own internal HDD?

Why would you ask this question?  All "streamers", that is any component which acts as an Ethernet endpoint for music playback, will buffer the incoming data in some kind of memory (but usually in RAM not to a disk drive).  Disk drives (including SSD) are in general noisier than RAM, so for best playback quality one would rather have no drive access going on during playback.  

It is best, for sonic performance, to not have any HDD (again, including SSDs) in one's endpoint-for best sonic performance the endpoint should be as simple as possible (but no simpler), without music storage, and added "features" which can only add to performance reducing noise.
