An item marked as Showroom Demo was used by AV Luxury Group for customers auditioning equipment in our retail store. We rarely sell our demo units unless the model or finish is no longer available. We go to great lengths to ensure our demo gear stays in mint condition. If anything isn't perfect, we make a note of that and post photos. Demo items carry a full manufacturer's warranty unless otherwise noted.
Aurender A10 Audiophile Music Streamer
A10 is an exceptionally high value music player with a superior built-in digital-to-analog converter. The full-decoder MQA DAC has a rich, organic sound that is extremely competitive sonically against stand-alone DACs costing as much or even far more than the A10 itself! With a 4 TB internal hard disk drive and 120GB solid-state drive cache for playback and control by Aurender Conductor, the A10 is the perfect one-box solution for those replacing high-end CD players or just seeking performance and simplicity.
MQA ( Master Quality Authenticated )
MQA is an award-winning British technology that delivers the sound of the studio. The master MQA file is fully authenticated and is small enough to stream, while also being backward compatible, so you can play MQA music on any device. MQA technology is licensed by labels, music services, & hardware manufacturers worldwide. The Aurender A10 includes full MQA Decoder technology, which enables you to play back MQA audio files and streams, delivering the highest possible sound quality of the original master recording.
The Aurender Conductor App will indicate that ‘MQA‘ or ‘MQA Studio‘ content is being played back. A green or blue dot next to the MQA logo indicate that the unit is decoding and playing an MQA stream or file, and denotes provenance to ensure that the sound is identical to that of the source material. The blue dot indicates it is playing an MQA Studio file, which has either been approved in the studio by the artist/producer or has been verified by the copyright owner.
The A10’s front panel also uses text indicators to display MQA playback and the respective sampling rate of the file or stream being played. ‘MQA’ or ‘MQA Studio’ indicates that the unit is decoding and playing an MQA stream or file, and denotes provenance to ensure that the sound is identical to that of the source material. ‘MQA Studio’ indicates it is playing an MQA Studio file, which has either been approved in the studio by the artist/producer or has been verified by the copyright owner.
