TAS Editors' Choice Awards 2016

Auredner N100H

Aurender's N100H brings you a surprising amount of the technology, sound quality, and outstanding user experience of the flagship W20 for a fraction of the price. You don't get features such as dual-wire AES and clock input, but most users don't need those capabilities anyway. The internal storages is 2TB rather than 12TB, but you can always add a NAS drive for more capacity. What you do get is the same outstanding Conductor app, Tidal integration, and Remote Support. Aurender's Conductor app for iPad is by far the best RH has used - fast, visually appealing, stable, intuitive, capable, and uncluttered, with features that have been clearly refined through actual use. Sonically, the N100H comes pretty close to the W20's state-of-the-art performance, particularly considering the cost differential.
