Aurender W20 Music Server
Australian distributor of TVLogic, Reference Audio Visual has announced the availability of the Aurender W20 Music Server. According to TVLogic, the W20 delivers a bit-perfect output with absolutely zero ground noise and virtually no jitter.
With 6TB of internal storage capacity and a 240GB solid state drive for cached playback (upgradable to twin 240GB SSD's), Ethernet port for network connectivity and a full range of digital outputs (BNC, coaxial, AES/EBU, optical, USB Audio Class 2.0), the W20 is a versatile product for the most discerning audiophile.
“The W20 is designed to be used with a wide variety of digital-to-analog converters and is one of the very few music servers able to support external word clocks and dual-wire mode”, Michael Marchant, of Reference Audio Visual told StereoNET.
Impressive is TVLogic's claim that “the W20 is the first music server to completely eliminate ground noise through the use of LiFePO4 batteries to power the audio circuits. This also eliminates jitter resulting from use of AC power supplies. In addition, the W20 incorporates a FPGA-based digital Phase Locked Loop system with OCXO clocks, fan-less design, extensive shielding, along with in-house developed CPU and audio boards to ensure that jitter is minimized to below negligible levels.”
The Aurender iPad ® App is the user interface for all Aurender music servers and is optimized for speed and convenience. In addition to the standard features found on other music players, the Aurender iPad ® App also has bit and sample rate filters, a 5-star rating system, automatic recently played playlist, user nameable browser buttons, changeable album cover sizes, and many other features that make viewing, searching and playing music collections easy and enjoyable.
At a time where digital storage and streaming is growing rapidly, the Aurender W20 is an ideal solution for storing and playing large digital music collections. The suggested retail price of the Aurender W20 is $18,500 AUD.
