Aurender A15: Elegant Simplicity in High-Performance Audio

Aurender A15: Music Server Excellence

Experience the paradigm shift introduced by the revolutionary A10, now surpassed by the upgraded A15. As Aurender's first music server/streamer with a built-in DAC, the A15 features numerous enhancements and audible improvements, setting a new standard in audio excellence.

The A15 stands as a true high-performance all-in-one Digital Source Component, delivering exceptional value with balanced analog outputs and a dual-mono AKM4490 digital-to-analog converter equipped with MQA full-decoder technology. Despite its advanced features, the A15 is priced competitively, making it an attractive choice compared to separate DAC & Transport setups.

Designed with simplicity in mind, the A15 is an elegant solution for audiophiles seeking a one-box source component. Its front panel display showcases album cover art, artist names, and song titles in vibrant color. The A15 also provides user-installable storage options with two rear panel bays capable of accommodating 2.5" HDDs or SSDs up to 8TB each, ensuring ample space for even the largest music libraries.

Whether replacing an aging CD player, upgrading from a laptop, or simply desiring the inherent simplicity of a great-sounding source component, the A15 is a compelling choice for the devoted audiophile. Elevate your audio experience with the elegance and performance of the Aurender A15.

Aurender A15 Key Features: Part 1

Dual Mono MQA Full-Decoder DAC

At the heart of A15 lies a dual-mono configuration of the exquisite AKM4490 DAC chipset. Delivering a resolved, smooth sonic signature free of etched "digital" harshness, A15 stands as a source of musical purity in any system. The built-in DAC not only provides the highest audio performance through the MQA process but also decodes PCM up to 32-bit/768kHz and DSD up to DSD512.

Linear Power Supply with Integrated UPS

In sensitive digital source components, the power supply plays a critical role in the overall sonic presentation. A15's fully-linear power supply structure incorporates four audiophile-grade toroidal transformers, advanced shielding, and isolation to prevent noise from being introduced to the signal path at this crucial stage.

User-Installable Storage Options

A15 is designed with user flexibility in mind, featuring two trays for user-installable storage. Whether you need substantial capacity by loading up to 2 8TB SSDs or prefer streaming without extra storage, A15 allows you to customize based on your needs, ensuring you only pay for the storage capacity you use.

Aurender A15 Key Features: Part 2

FPGA-Based Precision Clock

A15's high-precision clock generation system incorporates Field Programmable Gate Arrays (FPGA) for the DAC section. An extremely accurate sub 100fs clock generator precisely times the digital audio data transmission, reducing jitter well below negligible levels and ensuring optimal audio quality.

Variable Output XLR & RCA Outputs

Experience versatility with A15's high-quality Balanced (XLR) and Unbalanced (RCA) outputs, ensuring compatibility with any preamp, integrated amp, or power amps. The DAC-level lossless volume control enables A15 to function as a preamp when connected directly to a power amplifier, adding flexibility to your audio setup.

Digital Connectivity

A15 provides Coaxial and Optical digital inputs for the connection of additional digital sources such as a CD transport or TV. Any device connected this way will fully leverage the superior sound quality of the DAC within the A15, enhancing your overall audio experience.
