Dollar Store, Dollar General, Dollar Tree, it might as well be free. I could go on with an endless list of stores carrying disposable plastic junk, but that would be way too depressing. All of us are bombarded daily by inexpensive, expendable, items that were designed to be, as Chris Rock said, "Here today, gone today." To paraphrase almost everyone I know, they just don't make them like they used to. Or do they?
Aurender music servers are the robust aluminum antithesis of Thom Yorke's fake plastic trees, and are truly built like they used build them. That is, if music servers were built back in the day. Aurender started building its servers back in 2010. Over the years, the company has built one rock solid product after another. Products that discerning consumers enjoy using and displaying in their homes. In fact, the Aurender S10 music server was the Computer Audiophile product of the year back in 2011.
The newest audiophile heirloom from Aurender is the A10. OK, no music server should be considered an heirloom, but the A10 is fairly future resistant rather than future proof. The world's first component to support full MQA hardware decoding and include onboard storage and streaming, the all-in-one A10 is the right product at the right time. I've spent nearly one month with the Aurender A10 and have really enjoyed the splendor, simplicity, and excellent sound quality.
