There are a few reasons.
1. We’d like to be very picky with the software function that Aurender’s main unit. Aurender’s most important duty is playing music files at it’s best sound quality. The more program runs on the Aurender, you have more chances of deteriorating the sound quality.
Scanning process requires active CPU cycle and network traffic, which can easily affect the sound quality if you listen to the music while Aurender scans NAS contents. Scanning time can be days rather than hours if your network connection is slow you access NAS from other computers while scanning the NAS you have lot’s of files.
2. Aurender’s CPU is not the fastest CPU available. It’s fast enough for music playback. Unlike general computer, higher clock and faster CPU do not always give best results in terms of sound quality.
AMM is available for Mac/PC. So, if your PC/Mac has a faster CPU more memory, faster network speed, it will run faster.
Please remember that you can always revise your answers - no need to answer the same question twice.
