ACS10

Library management powerhouse, Audiophile USB output.

High Performance Digital Output Network Transport with Automatic CD Ripping / Library Management / Metadata Editing and Massive Dual-HDD Storage Central Server Hub for Large Libraries.

Introducing the ACS10

The Aurender ACS10 can be used as a fully-functional server and streamer controlled by Aurender Conductor, delivering a digital output via an Audio 2.0 USB port designed to be connected to an external DAC. However, the highest audio performance is achieved by connecting the ACS10 with an Aurender A10, N10, or W20 server.

The Aurender ACS10 is a device designed to completely remove the computer from “computer audio.” This has always been Aurender’s mission, but, until now, a computer was still required for CD ripping, file management, and metadata editing. No longer! With ACS10, computers and other IT products are not needed in your digital music life.

Its core functions encompass everything an audiophile needs and expects from a file-based playback system. All functionality is consolidated within the ACS10 with attention given to the simplification of the tasks at hand.

ACS10 can be used as a fully-functional server and streamer delivering pristine digital output via an Aurender’s filtered and isolated USB 2.0 audio port. However, the highest audio performance is realized when using the ACS10 mated with models A10, N10 or W20, where its CD ripping, library management, 2X isolated LAN port, and powerful processor will greatly enhance the Aurender experience.

For Aurender users seeking to add the functions of CD ripping, expanded storage and backup and metadata editing the ACS10 is the ideal companion. Customers seeking that same functionality in a stand-alone one box server/streamer solution can use ACS10 in that way as well.

Importing Media

The ACS10 offers one-touch CD Ripping with meta-data and cover art retrieval and a unique user-determined target folder depository feature. The CD-ROM drive (TIAC DVD-ROM) and tray loader feature an industrial-grade design for long-term durability.

The system supports FLAC, WAV, and AIFF codecs as well as support for Nimbie Autoloader for unattended ripping.

SmartMerge

The Aurender ACS10 features SmartMerge, allowing you to expand your library beyond the device. This program will identify a network-attached Aurender Server (W20, N10, A10, N100H, N100C, or X100L) and allow you to see content from both libraries in one place. Only one additional server may be viewed with this feature.

Ports

The ACS10 features three USB Hub Ports, one of which is doubly isolated. Additionally, there is one USB 2.0 port on the front panel and one USB 3.0 port on the rear panel.

Aurender Conductor App Packed with Convenient Features for Full-Function Control

The Aurender Conductor App turns the iPad into a versatile user interface for Aurender music servers. All settings and functions of the Aurender server can be easily accessed through the Settings menu, and the app comes with extensive features to make browsing and playing high-resolution music collections a breeze.

ACS Manager Companion App

ACS10 is so packed with features, we had to give it its very own app! The ACS Manager companion app is used to configure all system settings including CD ripping preferences, Smart Copy, Move, Delete, Duplicate Checker, Smart Tag Editor, and more.

State-of-the-Art Automatic CD Ripping

Aurender’s CD ripping software, which is custom engineered to work with the high-quality TEAC CD-ROM drive, yields shockingly good CD rips! Sophisticated error detection and correction ensures accurate rips for great sounding results.

Dedicated USB Audio Output Port

High-performance USB Audio Class 2.0 output allows ACS10 to function as a music server/streamer when connected to an external DAC. ACS10’s USB audio output quality is equivalent to N10’s USB audio output.

Massive HDD Storage Capacity for the Largest Music Libraries

ACS10 is available in two different dual hard drive configurations to provide enough storage for even the largest digital music libraries. 16TB or 24TB versions are factory-configured in RAID 1 mirroring meaning your actual music library storage capacity is half that, with the other half a mirrored image on a second drive. ACS10 can be user reconfigured to disregard mirroring and provide 16TB or 24TB total storage respective of model.

Linear Power Supply with Integrated UPS

Full-linear power supply plus “supercapacitor” based uninterruptible power supply (UPS) for stabilizing the ACS10 under an abrupt power outage condition.

Support for High-Resolution Formats

All major codecs supported. PCM up to 786kHz/32-bit. DSD up to 256 DoP. Native DSD up to 512.

MQA Core Decoder (optional in-app purchase)

Aurender’s optional MQA Core Decoder upgrade enables “first-level” MQA unfolding to play MQA files at up to 48 or 96 kHz.

2X Isolated LAN Port

ACS10 features 3 LAN ports, so it can be used as an Ethernet switch. One of three LAN Ports is 2X isolated – use this 2X isolated LAN port to connect to another Aurender server/player to isolate the server/player from any noise introduced by the LAN connection. If using ACS10 as a stand-alone server, use the 2X isolated LAN to connect directly to the router.

USB Connectivity

ACS10 features a USB 3.0 port for super fast copying from a USB hard drive. It also features a front-mounted USB 2.0 port (for connecting an Acronova Nimbie AutoLoader) and a filtered and isolated USB Audio 2.0 port dedicated for pristine audio.
