Caching Music Server / Streamer with USB Output / CD Ripper / Metadata Editor / Dual-HDD Storage / Library Manager
We say: converting your CD collection into digital couldn't be easier. Insert the CD's one-by-one into the Aurender ACS100 and it does the rest - next moment you will see the CD on the Aurender Conductor app on your iPad or Android Device and you can just press play - that easy. The ACS100 stores the disc on its internal hard drive, which sounds better than a separate hard drive anyway.
You'll get 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 hook-up is easy. The Aurender connects to your network - we will show you how - and it connects to your amplifier via USB cable. If your amplifier doesn't have a built-in USB DAC we will suggest a suitable external DAC for you.
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 retrieved 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 users 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.
