AVM Tec/Aurender

The mysterious AVM Tec (check out their website for an explanation) coupled their Alluxity Pre ONE preamplifier and Power ONE amplifier with the Aurender W20 music server (pictured at the bottom of the rack), and the Estelon Model XB speakers ($32,900/pair). AVM Tec is the brainchild of Alexander Vitus Mogensen, son of Vitus Audio founder Hans-Ole Vitus, and the company specializes in OEM and DIY markets.

The Aurender W-20 music server features 4GB of memory, a 240GB SSD, 3TB x2 for music storage, gigabit Ethernet and USB 2.0 inputs, Coaxial, Optical, 2x AES/EBU, BNC, and USB Audio Class 2.0 outputs. There's also a BNC word clock input and the W20 can handle up to 24/192 playback of AIFF, ALAC, FLAC, WAV, M4A, and APE file formats.
