The Aurender X100 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, terabytes of internal storage, 120GB solid-state drive for cached playback, the X100 is the ideal solution for playing and storing high resolution digital music collections.
The X100 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 completely eliminates jitter, latency and noise from spinning hard drives and compact disks. The high performance USB digital audio output was developed using the same engineering as the USB outputs on the flagship Aurender W20.
Gigabit Ethernet Port for Network Connectivity
For network connectivity, streaming, upgrades and file transfers, the X100 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 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 Player can be easily accessed through the Settings menu of the Aurender App.
Hard Disk Drive for Storage with Solid-State Drive Cache for Playback
An internal hard drive provides up to 12TB of storage on the X100L model and 1TB of storage on the X100S model. Both models have a 120G solid-state drive to cache music for high performance playback. If a selected song or album is already cached to the solid-state drive, the hard drive will remain asleep. This minimizes wear and tear on the hard drive. By caching songs to the solid-state drive for playback, electrical/acoustic noise resulting from spinning disks, moving heads and motors are also completely eliminated.
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.
Fanless Switching Mode Power Supply (SMPS)
A fanless quality Switching Mode Power Supply delivers stable power to the system.
Damped Hard Disk Drives
The internal hard disk drives are damped to minimize vibrations and noise.
AMM and NAS(Network-Attached Storage) Support
If you already have NAS set-up, the Aurender X100 is able to play music stored on NAS devices,
AMM(Aurender Media Manager) software is available for Mac(OS X 10.9 or later) now. Windows version will be available later.

“The Aurender X-100 represents a fine solution to the problems of a digital music player. It has been thoughtfully planned and brilliantly executed. It is up there with the best music players that I have auditioned. For hi-res material, it excels, and feels to be in its element. The quality of a CD ripped to its internal drive does not quite match the quality of the same disc played directly from the Esoteric K05. It is close, around 90% of the quality, which for most people will be a small price to pay for the massive increase in convenience created. ” — X100 Review Feb, 2015
