Flagship pedigree - make no compromise.
Ultra High-Performance Digital Output Network Transport with USB, AES/EBU, Coaxial, BNC, Optical Outputs and Word Clock Input, 2X User-Installable storage slots.
“The Aurender N20 hits the bullseye with simplicity, stability, speed, and sound quality. The product is as simple as possible, but no simpler”, said AudiophileStyle.com and we couldn’t agree more.
N20 sits in the enviable “sweet spot” of cost vs. performance in the middle of Aurender's range of digital source components. Equally at home in a cost-no-object system or as the cornerstone of a more modest system, N20 is designed to be connected to the world's best high-quality DACs. the N20 features ultra high-end SPDIF (Coaxial, BNC, Optical) and AES/EBU outputs in addition to an isolated USB Audio output. The SPDIF digital output suite is controlled by a precise OCXO clock for long-term jitter reduction, achieving the perfect marriage of low noise and low jitter. A word clock or master clock input is also provided for users who wish to sync with an external clock. High-resolution file support for all major codecs goes to extreme limits, and on-the-fly DSD-to-PCM conversion by FPGA is available for SPDIF outputs. N20 is equipped with two user-installable storage bays, allowing the user to select the drive type and capacity to meet their own needs. The handsome machined aluminum front panel features a large 8.8” full-color IPS LCD that reproduces the album art, artist name, and song title.
A true overachiever, the N20 fully embodies the virtues of high-end audio performance and user-friendliness expected from Aurender.
