The Statement Source for the finest HiFi systems.

State-of-the-art dual-chassis Digital Output Network Transport with USB, AES/EBU, Coaxial, BNC, Optical Outputs, and Word/Master Clock Input. 1 x 8TB SSD + User-Installable Expansion Port. 

The culmination of more than 10 years of research and product development has led Aurender to N30SA: the ultimate Digital Output Network Transport with the utmost transparency, resolution, pace, rhythm, dynamics, and revealing musical expression.

In digital audio rendering, two predominant forces must be mitigated to provide a pristine musical presentation: Noise and Jitter. N30SA's dual-chassis design physically and electrically isolates the sensitive audio outputs from the noise-generating components of the machine to deliver an uncanny kind of coherence and quiet. The kind of quiet that results in the listener's ability to hear deep into the music and identify each instrument with unbridled dynamics, true-to-life timbre, deep bass extension, and slam – even from the most complex musical passages.

As with N20 and W20SE, N30SA's SPDIF and AES/EBU outputs are controlled by an ultra-precise OCXO clock to minimize jitter and its harmful artifacts, therefore alleviating the harshness and incoherence that plagues some digital audio presentations. Add an external Master Clock connection like Aurender's MC20 for the ultimate in atomic clock timing accuracy.


Two-Chassis Design
N30SA takes physical and electrical noise isolation to unprecedented extremes. By isolating the sensitive audio outputs from the noise-generating pieces of the component, N30SA achieves a noise floor so low that nothing competes with the music.
Linear Power Supply with Integrated UPS
N30SA’s unique hybrid power supply delivers a pure DC to flawlessly power the digital audio output board, while a separate linear power supply chain feeds clean power to the non-audio adjacent components of the machine. N30SA redefines what’s possible in terms of the profound musical engagement extracted from files and streams.
Clock Input
N20, N30SA, W20, and W20SE all feature a unique Clock Input for connectivity with an external Master Clock such as MC20. A superior Master Clock can make a good system sound uncannily realistic, giving a new literal meaning to "High Fidelity."
PCM Upsampling
N30SA is capable of upsampling any lower-resolution content up to 176.4/192kHz for better performance with some DACs. Upsampling affects only the system’s SPDIF digital outputs. USB is always a bit perfect with no digital signal processing.
Discrete Power and Data Umbilical Connections
A pair of bespoke cables for connecting the two chassis are included in 0.5m and 1.5m lengths. One cable supplies power to the audio box, and a separate cable carries audio data. This connectivity scheme allows for further physical separation and noise suppression between the audio outputs and the rest of the components.
OCXO Clock Controlled Outputs
Aurender's Oven Controlled Crystal Oscillator (OCXO) clocks are unique in a category that has historically treated superior SPDIF and AES/EBU audio outputs as an afterthought. Unlike USB, where the DAC's clock matters most, SPDIF and AES/EBU data streams are only as good as the transport clocks that govern them. N30SA, N20, and W20SE all employ exceptionally accurate and stable OCXO clocks for a smooth, saturated, and laser-focused audio presentation.
8.8" Front Panel Display
An impressive 8.8” full-color IPS LCD reproduces the album art, artist name, and song title in utter elegance.
8TB SSD Storage + Expansion Port
An 8TB SSD is internally fitted, with a second disk tray for storage expansion, if needed.
