The OCXO oscillators used in Aurender S10 Music Systems are vastly more accurate than ordinary crystal oscillators used in most music servers and players. Clocks are important in guaranteeing jitter-free performance. Incorporating next generation technology with playback from Solid State Drives, easy-to-use iPad* remote control application, up to 2 terabytes of memory, and other unique features, Aurender S10 Music Systems are the ideal music storage and playback solution for modern audiophiles.

All details of song, album, playlist and queue easily viewed on large iPad display
Automatic or custom categorization of songs
CD album front and back covers can be stored and displayed along with music selection
Web search function to search for information on selected artist or song
Zoom in function
The Aurender uses a customized Linux operating system tuned for high performance digital processing. In addition, sampling rates from 44.1~192KHz with 16-bit and 24-bit widths match or vastly exceed the audio quality that can be obtained from compact disks.
With today's technology, clock and signal jitter can be lowered to a point where their effects are negligible. Aurender S10 clocks are based on ultra-stable Oven-Controlled Crystal Oscillators (OCXO) and uses Field Programmable Gate Arrays (FPGA) with PLL based re-clocking to ensure that the signal to the Digital Analog Converter is as accurate as possible.
The Aurender Music System is fanless to eliminate vibrations, unwanted electromagnetic fields and noise emanating from the fan. Solid State Drives, which have no moving parts, are used to avoid vibrations, electromagnetic interference, and latency found in hard disk drives. The use of solid-state drives vastly lowers processor access times. During playback, selections are automatically cached using proprietary technology from the hard disk to the Solid State Drive. The hard disk then falls asleep and the music is played back using only the solid state drive. This design eliminates problems with sonic and electromagnetic noise from spinning hard disk drives.
Care must also be taken when using switched-mode power supplies which generate undesirable electromagnetic noise. In the Aurender Music System, power is provided by both switching mode and linear power supplies. The switching mode power supply is isolated from critical components using thick aluminum walls and the linear power supply is used for sensitive critical components. Thick aluminum is also used to isolate physical and electromagnetic noise from CPUs and hard disk drives.
The Aurender S10 Music System delivers the best audio performance possible. The superior audio quality is definitely distiguishable even when compared to much more expensive high end systems.
The Aurender S10 Music System has digital outputs (Coaxial, AES/EBU, Optical, USB) which are designed to be connected to a Digital-to-Analog Converter (DAC), or an amplifier with digital inputs. The Aurender must be connected to a wireless router in order for the iPad to function as a wireless master control.
