Aurender W20SE Music Server / Streamer

The flagship music server for the finest audio systems in the world. Features include support for external word clocks, dual wire AES/EBU, a battery power supply, and 4 TB of internal storage

At the highest levels of digital audio, it's all about reducing noise and jitter. For the former, the W20SE uses LHP batteries for power, and for the latter, an FPGA-based all-digital phase locked loops system with an OCXO clock. The oven-controlled crystal oscillator ensures jitter stays negligible. Extensive shielding inside and outside lowers the noise floor even further.

Features

  • Support for both word clock and world clock inputs
  • Dual-wire AES/EBU for the highest resolution possible
  • Two banks of LiFePO4 batteries for power and UPS function
  • Oven-controlled crystal oscillator (OCXO) for long-term jitter reduction
  • Precision DSD-to-PCM conversion by FPGA
  • 4 TB 2.5" HDD storage with 1 TB SSD cache
  • Drives housed in a vault of machined aluminum
  • Dedicated ultra-low-noise USB Audio Class 2.0 output
  • MQA core decoder installed
  • Remote tech support via the Aurender app
