A30

A30 is the flagship model from Aurender’s range of analog output network players. Like A200, A15, and A20, A30 is, at its essence, a caching music server/streamer with a built-in DAC and analog outputs.

A30 is built around Aurender’s best internal DAC architecture: a dual-mono pair of AKM4497 DACs for the ultimate performance in channel separation, resolution, and control.

The Aurender A30 also includes full MQA Decoder technology which enables you to play back full-resolution MQA audio files and streams, delivering the highest possible sound quality of the original master recording. Beyond delivering exceptional audio quality, A30 includes functions like CD ripping, 10TB of internal storage, ultra-wide color LCD display, a high-quality dedicated headphone section, and an integrated software suite of metadata editing and library management tools.

All this, and much more, makes the A30 the new performance standard in all-in-one digital source components.
