Very Good Sound Quality

W20 Review - HIFICRITIC

Aurender W20 Review

There are some network access limitations, and a customer will need to plan for some housekeeping to make safety backup files of audio ripped to the Aurender W20, but I found the sound quality very good when fully connected to the dCS Scarlatti digital replay system, confirming the value of the separated data channels and this fully synchronised clocking ‘transport’. Build and finish is very 

good and the included iPad App is attractive and essentially easy to use. Also as connected to the internet via the network, software upgrades are regular and automatic, not requiring any user attention. Incidentally a free DSD replay upgrade will arrive very soon, perhaps by the time this review is published, for which the dCS combination is also compatible, further increasing its audiophile appeal.
