The Multi-Talented Utility Player

ACS100 provides a practical solution for incorporating CD Ripping, Library Management, and Central Server capabilities into any Aurender system. Positioned as an accessory upgrade or add-on, ACS100 encompasses all the functionality of ACS10 in a simplified package.

Featuring a more economical external switch-mode power supply instead of a linear power supply, ACS100 excludes the dedicated filtered & isolated USB audio output, making it an optimal stand-alone Central Server.

Tailored as an ideal add-on companion for A200, A15, A20, N20, W20SE, and N30SA, ACS100 augments functionality seamlessly. Additionally, while enhancing another Aurender system, ACS100 can serve as a source component for a second system concurrently.

Key Features

Reference Quality Automatic CD Ripping

ACS is for the music lover looking to convert a collection of CDs to a file-based format in the highest quality available. Enjoy lossless, error-corrected CD rips using ACS’s TEAC optical drive and customized audiophile CD ripping engine.

User-Installable Storage Options

ACS100 is built with two trays for user-installable storage. Install up to two 8TB SSDs for 16TB of internal storage capacity! This is enough to accommodate even the largest music libraries.

Metadata Editing and Library Management

Like any precious collection, Music Libraries need curation. The dedicated ACS Manager app allows the user to manage, catalog, and groom a vast library for easy access. Browse your library with pride again.

Nimbie Auto-Loader Compatibility

For large CD archival projects, connect an Acronova Nimbie Auto Loader (sold separately) for automated batch ripping.

Central Server Hub

Do you have more than one system in your home? Think of ACS as your musical “mothership” where your music library lives. Other Aurender systems on your network can stream your library from ACS seamlessly. With ACS handling the content storage/server tasks, your other systems run nice and light for superior audio performance.

Future-Proofed Processing Power

The ACS system incorporates significant processing power and system memory designed to maximize headroom for expanded functionality now and in the future.
