Aurender A30 Music Server / Streamer / MQA DAC

This flagship streaming DAC offers MQA, CD ripping, a headphone amp, 10 TB of internal storage, and a large color display

Aurender's top of the line dual mono streaming DAC has fully discrete linear power supplies for each channel, and is built around a 768 kHz, 32 bit design using the AKM AK4497 chipset. This all-out attack is designed for the most demanding audiophile with just one shelf of audio rack space, who wants the very best one-box digital source.

The A30 is so packed with features that it comes with its own manager app (separate from the Conductor app used for music library control). Using the A30 Manager, you can configure CD ripping settings, set library management tools, and other behaviors. Digital filter settings are also available.
