Very high on my "Can't wait to hear this in my system" list was the new Aurender
caching N100 network streamer ($2499). Capable of handling up to 32/384 PCM and DSD128, the N100 offers Ethernet and USB inputs and a USB output as well as 120GB of SSD storage for caching. I've been very favorably impressed with Aurender's S10 music server (see review
) and their less expensive X100L server (see review
) in terms of both their build quality and more importantly their sound quality. In addition, the Aurender app is one of the user-friendliest around. Another cool feature of the N100 is the ability to stream from Tidal's lossless streaming service which is also controlled from within the Aurender app. You can even mix music from Tidal and your NAS on the same playlist! You can also opt for an optional 1TB SSD internal storage ($TBD).
