Once I have a few hundred hours on the N100H I will move it to the studio to compare it against the N10, both connected to the K-01X. Should be interesting. Right now I am still transferring music files to the N100H with some listening sessions in between. The N100H sounds excellent in the living room system. I suspect it will only get better with some break-in hours logged on it. This is a sweet music server.
    Congratulations Dan! Looking forward to the shootout between the N10 and the N100H.
    I also just received the N100H and enjoying it very much.

    Re: New Aurender N100H arrived today

    I completed my music file transfers this afternoon. The Aurender N100H now holds 1368 CD's and 72 hi-res downloads for a total of 1440 albums. The music files are stored in bit-perfect FLAC format which has consumed 487 GB of the 4 TB hard drive. I used the drag and drop method to move files from my backup hard drive to the N100H rather than a straight copy of all the backup hard drive content because there are some music files I no longer listen to and don't want on the N10 or the N100H hard drives. There were some music files on the Aurender N10 that were not on my backup hard drive. Opening both the N10 and N100H hard drives on my desktop computer made simple work of dragging and dropping files between the two hard drives. It took about 28 hours total to complete the file transfer task doing the drag and drop by hand. Now it's all about listening to the Aurender N100H. It is a beautiful music server.

    Re: New Aurender N100H arrived today

    I just finished a three hour listening session with my new Aurender N100H in the living room system. The sound was crystal clear, robust bass, excellent separation of instruments and voices, with quick dynamics and complete silence when there is no audio signal. The N100H is impressive, and its price point makes it extremely attractive. I am very pleased with my purchase. Many thanks to Suncoast Audio. Mike knows how to make it happen for us.
