The Aurender ACS100 was developed to be a more cost-effective version of the ACS10 offering many of the same functions as the ACS10. The ACS100 quite simply delivers much more than other competitive brands in its price class.
As a music server / streamer, the Aurender ACS100 enjoys operational control via Aurender Conductor for both iPad tablets and Android devices. All the features you’d expect from Aurender like clutter-free direct access to your music as well as app-embedded Tidal and Qobuz subscription streaming services, Spotify Connect, internet radio, MQA Core decoding (optional), CD ripping and advanced metadata editing and library management.
The Aurender ACS100 provides two sliding trays located on the rear panel that are designed to hold your choice of HDDs or SSDs for storage. You can install one drive to start and as your storage requirements change, add another or load both for maximum storage capacity.
Aurender’s CD ripping engine creates the best sounding files in your choice of FLAC, WAV or AIFF codecs. Metadata is automatically retrived and the album cover art and other metadata can be viewed on the front panel display. A TEAC CD-ROM drive extracts the CD data in bit-perfect fashion in a one-touch operation and places the file in a user determined folder for immediate playback.
Tag Editing and Library Management
Smart Tag Editor is an application for the modification of various metadata fields allowing user to correct the files tags to suit their music sorting requirements. A Copy / Move / Delete feature allows for easy transfer of music libraries from various other network attached devices and can also perform a scan for duplicate file removal.
One can use Aurender ACS100 as a central server for other Aurender players. Connectivity is accomplished over the network allowing the ACS100 to be placed anywhere convenient. Although the ACS100 can operate as a stand-alone music server / streamer, best sound quality is achieved when using an N100H, N100C, N100SC, N10, A100, A10, A30 or W20SE Aurender music server / streamer as the main player.
