The Aurender ACS10 is designed to be your one-stop solution for digital music management.
A caching music server with a CD ripper, content storage, library management, and meta-tag editor, it has everything an audiophile needs when using a file-based playback system, designed to simplify the tasks at hand. It can be used as a companion to your existing Aurender Music Server to expand its function and flexibility or as a fully-functional server and streamer on its own.
One-touch CD Ripping with metadata and cover art retrieval with a unique user determined target folder depository feature. Tray-loader, industrial-grade CD-ROM drive for ripping only with choice of FLAC, WAV, MP4 and AIFF codecs.
User configurable HDD backup options. Choose from between RAID 1 mirroring or the total storage capacity of both HDDs (factory set to RAID 1).
Library syncing and duplicate file removal can be done when an existing Aurender server library is copied into the ACS10 while running the SmartCollect program. If new content is added to the Aurender, SmartCollect needs to be initiated to sync to the ACS10 (this is a manually initiated action, not automatic).
Support for using ACS10 as central library storage or to expand storage beyond the capacity of an existing Aurender music server. ACS10’s SmartMerge feature will identify a network attached
W20/N10/A10/N100H/N100C or X100L allow user to see content from both libraries combined into one. (SmartMerge can only be used 1+1, one ACS10 and one Aurender music server). The duplicate file removal function is useful when merging libraries.
Metadata editing application for metadata modification to suit your sorting requirements.
Media files and streaming content managed using the integrated Aurender Conductor App. Integrated app support for Tidal, Qobuz, Bugs and Melon (determined by country offering service) and Spotify Connect.
