“The N100H is a great next step for those looking to move from a traditional computer based source to a more complete system approach that continues to improve without the need for user intervention….Superb sound quality”
– Computer Audiophile (read the review)
“That the N100H arrives with more than enough potential and flexibility to satisfy both newcomers and experienced ‘philes alike – not to mention the unmissable fact you have to spend a good deal more money to better it – means the only appropriate way to wrap this commentary is with a bow: DAR-KO award.”

The Aurender N100 Digital Music Player
The Aurender N100 Digital Music Player supports DSD (DSF, DFF), WAV, FLAC, ALAC, APE, AIFF, M4A and other major formats at native bit and sampling rates. Equipped with a high performance USB digital audio output, Ethernet port, 120GB solid-state drive for cached playback, the N100 is the ideal solution for playing high resolution digital music collections from NAS.
Innovative Technology The N100 digital music player incorporates many innovations originally developed for the higher priced Aurender S10 and W20 models, including a solid-state drive cache for playback which eliminates latency and drop-outs from NAS drives. The high performance USB digital audio output was developed using the same engineering as the USB outputs on the flagship Aurender W20.
Gigabit Ethernet LAN Port for Network Connectivity For network connectivity, streaming, upgrades and file transfers, the N100 has a Gigabyte Ethernet port along with two USB 2.0 data ports for copying files from USB memories.
Aurender App with Convenient Features The Aurender Condutor App turns the iPad into a versatile user interface for Aurender Music Players and makes managing, viewing and playing high resolution music collections a breeze. All settings and functions of the Aurender Music Server/Player can be easily accessed through the Settings menu of the Aurender App. Android App(Lite Version) is also available.
AMM(Aurender Media Manager) – cover art & other meta-tag support for contents on the NAS The Aurender Music Server/Player series could play contents on the NAS by file/folder browsing. With the help of AMM for PC/Mac, N100 and all other existing Aurender Music server series can display and use meta-tag information of the contents on the NAS the same as the content in the Aurender’s internal Storage. AMM(Aurender Media Manager) software is available for Mac(OS X 10.9 or later) now. Windows version will be available later.
Network streaming with Solid-State Drive Cache for Playback If a selected song or album is already cached to the solid-state drive, N100 will play from the internal SSD. This minimizes wear and tear on the NAS drive. Also, by caching songs to the solid-state drive for playback, it eliminates music quality degradation or even drop outs of music due to non-optimal network connection from the NAS to the streamer.
Dedicated USB Audio Class 2.0 Output with Noise Free Power Circuitry The dedicated USB Audio Class 2.0 output is designed to deliver an exceptionally transparent audio signal free of noise and is shielded from outside electronic interference.
Full Linear Power Supply A full linear power supply provides clean and stable power to the CPU circuit and audio output circuit. Remote Internet Technical Support Sending a Remote Support Request using the Aurender Conductor App allows engineers to quickly diagnose and fix problems over the Internet, should they occur.
