The ACS100 was developed to be a more cost-effective version of the ACS10 offering many of the same functions as the ACS10. The ACS100 quite simply delivers much more than other competitive brands in its price class.
As a music server / streamer, the ACS100 enjoys operational control via Aurender Conductor for both iPad tablets and Android devices. All the features you’d expect from Aurender like clutter-free direct access to your music as well as app-embedded Tidal and Qobuz subscription streaming services, Spotify Connect, internet radio, MQA Core decoding (optional), CD ripping and advanced metadata editing and library management.
ACS100 provides two sliding trays located on the rear panel that are designed to hold your choice of HDDs or SSDs for storage. You can install one drive to start and as your storage requirements change, add another or load both for maximum storage capacity.
Aurender’s CD ripping engine creates the best sounding files in your choice of FLAC, WAV or AIFF codecs. Metadata is automatically retrived and the album cover art and other metadata can be viewed on the front panel display. A TEAC CD-ROM drive extracts the CD data in bit-perfect fashion in a one-touch operation and places the file in a user determined folder for immediate playback.
