A30 combines many of the features of the ACS10 with Aurender's highest performance server and D/A converter design yet. It’s also the first Aurender to incorporate a headphone amplifier, making the A30 the best solution for those seeking the ultimate in performance and convenience.
A30 is the flagship model from Aurender’s range of analog output digital music players. Like A10 and A100, A30 is, at its essence, a caching music server / streamer with internal storage with control via Aurender Conductor.
The Aurender A30 also includes full MQA Decoder technology which enables you to play back MQA audio files and streams, delivering the highest possible sound quality of the original master recording. What distinguishes A30 from the others is the pure audio performance and exhaustive feature set.
Aurender has designed A30 to be the comprehensive digital focal point of your system providing useful aides not usually associated with a typical music server.
Functions like CD ripping, a high-quality headphone amplifier, 10TB of internal storage, ultra-wide color LCD display and an integrated software suite of metadata editing and library management tools. All this, and much more, makes the A30 the new performance standard in all-in-one digital source components.
The Aurender approach has always emphasized custom integration of software and hardware. When these elements are indivisibly engineered in-house, we achieve increased stability, reliability and overall performance of operation. This approach is key to Aurender and sets Aurender products apart from the old-fashioned way of running music software on a computer or powerful processor and using IT peripherals for storage and other purposes.
Control and music management of all Aurender models is via the Conductor App, hailed by users and reviewers alike for its performance and intuitive operation. The iPad-based App was developed in-house with managing large music databases in mind, providing exceptionally fast browsing and searching of your favorite music. In-app TIDAL and Qobuz integration provides access to these subscription-based services and to the millions of tracks available in CD quality or better. Internet radio support via SHOUTcast.
A separate app, A30 Manager, equips A30 with software programs for metadata editing and digital file management allowing the user to combine, organize and correct metadata in the way you desire.
