    Aurender N30

    The Aurender N30 looks like a nice component. Here’s a link to the owner’s manual, complete with pictures.

    I don’t recall where I saw them, but someone posted some ‘under the hood’ photos of the N30. It’s a real engineering masterpiece.

    These were posted here some time ago. There was a link to an Asian website featuring the new unit.

    I spoke with Aurender USA following that post. At that time they weren’t sure they would bring the N30 to the US market. Now, seeing the owner’s manual in English is encouraging. Aurender N30

    Based on the Owner’s Manual photos, it looks like the power supply, SSD or HDD storage and readout screen are in the top chassis and the clocking and digital output modules are in the bottom chassis. I would surmise that this combination results in maximum noise reduction.

    Ken, you’re on the right track here. Aurender confirmed the “computer stuff” is in one chassis, the “audio stuff” resides in the other.

    That build starts to make more sense creating separation, and IMO does not take all that much to create. With all respect, their chassis build is simple, no need for a screen on the second box, and the electronics are already a part of it, maybe $15,000 after seeing the N20 is $12,000.

    I think more but we’ll see in time. Thinking $18Kish. It’s anyone’s guess at this point

    Re: Aurender N30

    Mike, as an Aurender expert, which power cords are you using for the N20/N10?
    Also, I was wondering if the W20SE with it’s internal battery benefits from a high class power cord as it‘s smaller brothers do?!

    We are using the AQ Dragon Source because in that room, it’s all AQ (except for the Ethernet and USB). I haven’t really thought about the W20SE being any different, I would be using the right cable for my budget and system. Omega NR, Alpha v2 would be used or the new Venom Digital on a N100/N10 if it was in the Shunyata room.

    Re: Aurender N30

    Great, so I‘ll aim for the Alpha NR v2 (using an Everest) then for my N100... the Omega QR would be the upgrade Budget to N20 alone. Does the extra gauge of a Sigma improve anything vs Alpha for these low current devices?

    Waiting for the comparison (and price) of N20/N30 on which to pick. Although I find the N20 more elegant and the N30 a bit bulky.

    Regarding the latest firmware update: Is this something that benefits the N20 as well or did it move the W20SE more ahead?

    There should be zero benefit from an upgraded power cord on the W20 or W20SE as it runs entirely on battery power except when it’s charging. Use the stock cord that comes with the unit. The money saved on an upgraded power cord on a N20 or N30 could be put towards the upgrade to a W20SE.

    Me: “Is there a benefit to using any after market power cord on the W20SE?”

    Aurender: “there is still a benefit, but certainly less than other Aurender’s.”
