Smart Decision for the Sound Obsessed

N150 is the most accessible and economical entry point to the "Aurender Way" of enjoying music with a stable, reliable, great sounding digital source component. Although it was designed with affordability in mind, in true Aurender fashion, its audio performance decidedly belies its cost. The N150 is the source to choose when upgrading from a cd player, computer, or budget brand streamer to discover the world of true high end, high resolution playback.

Designed to be used exclusively with a USB DAC, the N150 incorporates our latest dedicated USB Audio Class 2.0 output and double isolated gigabit LAN port to lower both noise and jitter for the pristine reproduction of high-resolution files and streams. A high contrast 3" AMOLED screen mounted on a compact and handsome machined aluminum chassis indicates "Now Playing" track info.

Performance and usability enhancing features include a linear power supply, low power/high-efficiency Intel CPU board, super capacitor-based UPS, and a user-installable storage tray for the SSD or HDD that suits your library storage needs.

N150 is the perfect choice for music lovers who care not for the large, full-color screen and SPDIF or AES/EBU outputs of models higher up in Aurender's range. There is nothing "entry level" about N150, except for the price.

A Minimalist Approach

USB Audio connectivity has come a long way since the bad old days. At this point, most DAC manufacturers have engineered their USB Audio inputs for extremely high-performance playback. If all you need is USB, N150 delivers very nearly the best USB audio output that Aurender has to offer, in a tidy, affordable package.


Linear Power Supply with Integrated UPS

Clean power is the single most important factor in enjoying your favorite music with the highest fidelity from a digital source component. N150 features a fully linear power supply block for a low noise floor.


Elegant AMOLED Front Panel Display

An easy-to-read AMOLED display reproduces the "Now Playing" track information in understated elegance.


User-Installable Storage Options

N150 is built with a user-installable storage solution. You may easily install an SSD or HDD for music library storage. Or, not into storing files and prefer to stream? Leave the drive bay empty, and don't pay for storage capacity you won't use.


Aurender's Dedicated USB Audio Output

USB is historically prone to transferring noise between devices. That's why Aurender's dedicated USB Audio output is physically and electrically isolated from the noise-generating CPU board to minimize noise in the sensitive audio interconnect.

The Aurender Way

Listen to music the "Aurender Way" with the award winning Aurender Conductor App. Enjoy the simplicity, stability, and elegance of a closed system, and ditch the computer!
