If you’ve ever owned a computer audio system, you know that time spent fussing is time lost enjoying music!

Consider the alternative – the Aurender N100H, N100C or N100SC. All models elegantly replace your aging computer audio system and elevate your audio system’s sound quality. Music can be stored on the internal hard drive – 2TB (N100H) or 4TB (N100C) with a 120GB solid state (SSD) caching drive performing all file playback for superior fidelity and reliability. For the streaming enthusiast not in need of of a hard drive, we offer the N100SC in which storage is optional. Management of your digital music library or Tidal and Qobuz lossless streaming services is simple and intuitive, thanks to our award-winning Aurender Conductor app. And all major digital file formats are supported at native bit depth and sampling rates. Housed in beautiful machined aluminum casework, any N100 version will compliment your existing system components and deliver a new level of musicality you have to hear to believe.

Innovative Technology
The N100H and N100C digital music players incorporate technology derived from our best-in-class models. For example, the solid-state (SSD) 120GB caching drive for playback eliminates latency and the potential of drop-outs often associated with using IT storage devices like NAS and USB drives for music playback. And our dedicated high-performance Audio 2.0 USB digital audio output or SPDIF Coax feature ultra low-noise power circuitry to deliver a pristine digital stream to the connected DAC. The N100H and N100C greatly benefit from “trickle down” technology from our far more expensive models making them both deliver audio performance that belies their cost. All this is true as well for the N100SC, except that the hard drive installation is elective. A rear panel tray can accommodate a 2.5″ HDD (up to 7mm in height) or a SATA SSD. Either drive is user installed at purchase, any time thereafter or never.

 

Gigabit Ethernet LAN Port for Network Connectivity
For WiFi network connectivity, streaming, upgrades and file transfers, N100H, N100C and N100SC have a Gigabit Ethernet Port along with two USB 2.0 data ports for copying files from a USB HDD or USB thumb drive.

 

Copying Content
Loading music into your Aurender is simple and easy. You can choose between two simple methods depending upon where you digital music library currently resides – direct from a USB storage device or over the network from a NAS.

 

The Aurender Conductor App Takes Control Of Your Music
The Aurender Conductor App turns your iPad, Android phone or tablet into a highly versatile user interface for Aurender Music Servers making managing, viewing, playing and streaming high-resolution music collections a breeze. All permissions, behaviors and functions of the Aurender Music Server / Streamer can be easily accessed through the Settings menu of the Aurender ConductorApp.

Embedded within the Aurender App are the lossless streaming services Tidal and Qobuz (subscription required). When using a streaming service, Aurender handles the streaming content the same way as files stored internally, so all functions and operations are the same with either library. In fact, it’s easy to combine streaming content into your library of files making all content appear to be one and the same.

 

MQA Core Decoder (optional in-app purchase)
Aurender’s optional MQA Core Decoder upgrade enables first unfold to play MQA files through a non-MQA certified DAC at up to 88.2kHz or 96kHz. The Core Decode upgrade can also deliver the first unfold to MQA certified DACs requiring it so the DAC can perform the final rendering.

 

USB HD and NAS (Network-Attached Storage) Support
Best performance occurs when music is stored on the Aurender’s internal storage. However, the Aurender platform is also capable of seamlessly integrating content stored on a NAS or external USB hard drive using AMM (Aurender Media Manager).

 

Network Streaming With Solid-State Drive (SSD) Caching Playback
After a song or album is selected from the Aurender Conductor App, that specific music is cached to the 120GB SSD from the internal HDD and the N100 will then playback directly from the SSD. This minimizes wear and tear on the HDD drive as after loading to the caching drive, the HDD goes idle. Additionally, by caching songs to the SDD for playback, it eliminates any sound quality degradation and even drop outs due to a non-optimal network connection from for example, a NAS drive. The N100SC includes a larger 240GB caching drive so this functionality is available if a HDD or SSD is installed.

 

Dedicated USB Audio Class 2.0 Output With Noise-Free Power Circuitry
Our dedicated USB Audio Class 2.0 output is designed to deliver an exceptionally transparent audio signal, free of noise and shielded from any outside electrical or RFI interference.

 

Ultra High-Quality SPDIF Digital Audio Output (N100C & N100SC only)
SPDIF audio outputs differ from asynchronous (USB) outputs in that the clocking is done from within the server as opposed to the DAC. Which is best? One must try that in the context of your system to know. However, there many very good performing legacy DACs manufactured before USB existed and here the SPDIF RCA Coax may be you’re only connectivity option.

 

Linear Power Supply
A full-linear power supply provides clean and stable power to the CPU and audio output circuitry. Linear supplies are renowned for their ability to deliver a wide dynamic range capability, deep and powerful low frequency response and a wide and deep soundstage.

 

Remote Internet Technical Support
In the unlikely event you may need technical support, you can do so right from the Aurender Conductor App. Sending a Remote Support Request from our app allows engineers to quickly diagnose and correct problems over the Internet, should they occur.

Why buy from us?

Rapallo is an independently owned New Zealand company and with more than 15 years experience, we offer you both technical expertise and superior service.

Rapallo is fully authorized to sell products by all of the manufacturers listed on our website and in our store. In most cases we are more than a reseller, we are a direct dealer who also receives training and where possible we personally test products we sell.

 

Authorized dealers like us offer peace of mind. Rapallo

  • meets manufacturer’s standards, from sales to service, in order to receive authorized status.
  • often receives training directly from manufacturer representatives and shares that expertise with you.
  • provides  support for all the products they sell.
  • ensures that manufacturer warranties will be honoured.
  • buys directly from big brand manufacturers and guarantee you buy NZ new, (no grey imports or parallel imports).

The Internet is an incredibly convenient information source and a wonderful way to find savings on the products you want. Protect yourself online by buying from authorized dealers, with genuine feedback and reputations.

 

A price too good to be true, usually is.
If you’ve ever searched for a product on a shopping engine (such as Priceme/Pricespy) you may have asked yourself, “Why are some stores charging so much less than other stores?”

Our customers often share these stories with us, so we thought we would share a few with you, in hopes that you don’t fall prey to any of these unscrupulous sales tactics.

  • Goods may be grey market/parallel imported. They may state that the product includes the manufacturer warranty, but not tell you that the warranty is valid only in Europe, Japan, or South America, and NOT in NZ.
  • You may be asked to buy an expensive extended warranty. In many cases if you do not purchase the warranty, your purchase will be denied. (The product is now out of stock, your card does not go through, etc.)
  • Included parts may be sold to you separately. Some resellers will open boxes and charge extra for parts that are normally included by the manufacturer.
  • Hidden charges which don’t show up until your credit card statement arrives, these charges only show up when your credit card statement is sent to you.
  • When something goes wrong, faulty, late delivery, doesn’t matter how many times you try to email, they don’t get back.
  • There are so many scamming online sellers today, “buyer beware” protect yourself!

 

Think you have a better price from someone in NZ (authorised dealer)? Call us, we’ll see what we can do.

 

Concerned About Fraud?
The internet has become a more popular source for online shopping, regrettably we have seen more and more instances of fraud affecting online shoppers. Companies trading under many  different names, loading warranties and charging for them as extras when often they are included from the manufacturer. Parallel imports or personal imports where the NZ supplier refuses to repair when things go wrong is often alarming to the unsuspecting purchaser. Inflated freight charges, customs and GST at the border are often forgotten as a buyer is tempted by a lower price. Constantly we hear all these stories, once bitten it’s all to late looking for that refund or replacement. The stories are outrageous at times, customers from Trademe and ebay with no place to turn, time consuming and very frustrating…

 

So how do you protect yourself from online fraud?

  • Buy from an authorized reseller. If you are at all suspicious, contact the manufacturer directly and ask if a company is authorized to sell their products.
  • Make sure you get a company invoice with GST clearly marked.
  • Make sure you buy from someone who has a phone number and an address on their website, not a P.O.Box number
  • Read customer feedback, you can usually tell if it’s genuine or not.

We hope that you will become our next happy customer. And we promise to offer you superior service before, during and after your purchase.
