    Announcing the NEW Aurender N20




    We’ve been busy working on new models that fill in the gap in both performance and price between the current model N10 and flagship W20SE. The new model N20 is an upgraded-in-every-way N10, much like how the W20SE evolved from the original W20. All new circuit topologies inside and a fresh new cosmetic exterior make this a product sure to be a big success.
    N20 Highlights and Features:
    The brand new linear power supply for N20 utilizes 2 transformers, 4 cores, large audio-grade capacitors, and isolated grounding! It is extremely sophisticated and dead quiet! A power supply this good contributes immediately audible improvements to any audio component.
    Grounding for the SPDIF outputs is now isolated by a separate transformer for an even lower noise floor on AES/EBU, Coax RCA & BNC, and Toslink outputs compared to N10.
    All new circuit boards populated with higher precision OCXO clock and oscillator exhibiting 4 to 10 times more stability (frequency stability vs. load) than the N10. Musicality, timing, pace and rhythm are greatly enhanced.
    Like A30, ACS10 and ACS100, the N20 features a built-in super capacitor-based uninterruptible power supply. This prevents disc and operating system corruption in the event of an abrupt power outage by safely shutting down the system.
    A word clock input facilitates syncing N20 with an external word clock.
    N20 features a full color 8.8” 1980 x 480 wide screen as found on A30. The chassis size is just slightly taller than the N10 giving it a more substantial appearance.
    The N20 is supplied without hard drives installed. As with N100SC and ACS100, hard drives are the customer’s choice. Each of the two rear panel mounting sleds accommodates a 1, 2,4 or 8TB 2.5 inch SSD or up to 5TB 15mm height 2.5inch HDDs. Since users have different storage requirements, we feel this is the best way to satisfy everyone.
    Next-generation USB Audio Class 2.0 Module designed with an emphasis on lowering jitter and lowest possible latency.
    Like the W20SE and ACS10, the N20 uses a double isolated LAN port for filter out router induced noise.
    Double the DRAM (8GB) of the N10 providing ample system resource for support of native DSD 512 playback.
    Improved and higher capacity SSD for caching. Upgraded to 500GB M2 NVME. N10 uses a 2.5” 240GB SATA.
    Available in silver or black finish.
    Suggested Retail Price: $12,000.

    Very nice indeed! Would be great if they would publish what audio formats and which streaming providers are supported.

    Glad to see another great product (at least on paper) in this music server/streamer space.

    Does the N20 connected to a network find network DAC's (like your MSB) and access those DAC's via the network? Isn't the MSRP of the N20 close to the W20SE or was that the older W20.

    Interesting unit.

    The N20 connects to your DAC via any of its digital outputs.

    W20 was $18k I believe when it first came out and the W20SE is $22k with 4TB of SSD or $23,500 with 8TB SSD.

    Aurender also offers the incredible Aurender Content Server and Ripper for those needing central storage and ripping.

    Re: Announcing the NEW Aurender N20

    I’m not a techie, so please bear with me. Does “each of the two ... sleds accommodates a[n] ... 8TB SSD” mean that the N20 can accommodate up to 16 TB of internal storage? But the customer has to install the drives herself?

    Excellent point. That's how things used to be. Companies like Lumin, Aurender, Linn and a others have the engineering capacity to deliver digital products that are fairly easy to install and use. Even as a former tech executive, I avoid small outfits and/or doing my own servers; don't want to deal with the hassle.

    Those Aurenders sure look mighty good! I really like the new display with cover art. Beautiful design!

    I didn't know 8 TB SSD was already a thing... Must cost an arm and a leg!

    About $800 per drive. Totally worth it.

    Expensive but not too crazy... So for 1600$ more you could have a scary 16TB and eschew the whole NAS thing... Sweet! Are SSDs much more reliable that spinning drives or just faster?

    Is the Conductor a good app? Does it work well?

    An SSD that is mostly just written to and read (as opposed to frequent erasing and re-writing) should last even longer! Although the best price I can find for a Samsung 8TB SSD is about $900

    Many downloads do include one or both of those file types...

    In a SSD, even though a user might delete a file, it may not actually get deleted in the background until the space is needed. Controller FW algorithm will manage that.

    The N20 is an appealing component with the numerous upgrades from the N10 and the ability to add 16 TB of SSD storage.

    Announcing the NEW Aurender N20

    I always wondered what happens if a person were to rip his/her entire CD collection using the Aurender ripper and storage and then decides to change to another brand. Can the entire library with all metadata be transferred to a non-Aurender device and used by that device? I would assume it can but just curious.

    PS. Just watched the video and it looks as if the storage is not included with the unit. In that case, I guess that one can just sell the unit and keep the drives.
