Aurender ACS10 Network Transport/CD Ripper/Music Server

The Aurender ACS10 is a device designed to completely remove the computer from “computer audio.” This has always been Aurender’s mission, but, until now, a computer was still required for CD ripping, file management, and metadata editing. No longer! With ACS10, computers and other IT products are not needed in your digital music life. Its core functions encompass everything an audiophile needs and expects from a file-based playback system. All functionality is consolidated within the ACS10 with attention given to the simplification of the tasks at hand.

High-Performance Digital Output Network Transport with Automatic CD Ripping / Library Management / Metadata Editing and Massive Dual-HDD Storage Central Server Hub for Large Libraries

Designed and developed to eliminate the reliance upon computers and other IT products in your digital audio
system, the Aurender Content Server (ACS10) unifies the activities of CD ripping, Network Attached Storage (with RAID mirroring), and advanced library management/metadata editing with exceptional USB audio output.

Not only does ACS10 excel as a stand-alone Digital Transport with the same filtered & isolated USB
audio output found on the most high-end Aurender models, the included ACS Manager companion app incorporates advanced library management utilities right from your iPad or Android tablet.

A CD-ROM drive and ACS's reference quality CD Ripping engine authors the best-sounding files from your CDs in your choice of FLAC, WAV, or AIFF codecs. Metadata is automatically retrieved and fully editable if desired.

Music collectors with massive libraries or more than one high-end system in the home will appreciate ACS10 as a Central Server Hub for other Aurender players. Connectivity is accomplished over the network, allowing the ACS10 to be conveniently located in your main audio system or a separate location.

Reference Quality Automatic CD Ripping
ACS is for the music lover looking to convert a collection of CDs to a file-based format in the highest quality available. Enjoy lossless, error-corrected CD rips using ACS's optical drive and customized audiophile CD ripping engine.
Metadata Editing and Library Management
Like any precious collection, Music Libraries need curation. The dedicated ACS Manager app allows the user to manage, catalog, and groom a vast library for easy access. Browse your library with pride again.
Aurender's Dedicated USB Audio Output
USB is historically prone to transferring noise between devices. That's why Aurender's dedicated USB Audio output is physically and electrically isolated from the noise-generating CPU board to minimize noise in the sensitive audio interconnect.
Audio Grade Linear Power Supply with UPS
Clean power is the single most important factor in enjoying your favorite music with the highest fidelity from a digital source component. ACS10 features a fully linear power supply block for a low-noise floor, allowing the nuances and details of your music to sing out. Super Capacitor UPS system protects your Aurender in case of abrupt loss of power.
Central Server Hub
Do you have more than one system in your home? Think of ACS as your musical "mothership" where your music library lives. Other Aurender systems on your network can stream your library from ACS seamlessly. With ACS handling the content storage/server tasks, your other systems run nice and light for superior audio performance.
Massive Built-In Storage Capacity
ACS10 ships standard in a 2 x 8TB RAID1 configuration, where the 2 HDDs are set up as mirror images of one another in case of drive failure. However, if you require more capacity, ACS can be easily reconfigured to make use of the full capacity of both drives. Need even more storage? Special order ACS10 with up to 2 x 14 TB HDDs!
Nimble Auto-Loader Compatibility
For large CD archival projects, connect an Acronova Nimbie Auto Loader (sold separately) for automated batch ripping.
Future-Proofed Processing Power
The ACS system incorporates significant processing power and system memory designed to maximize headroom for expanded functionality now and in the future.
