AC Power Socket - Connects the AC power cord to a power source/outlet.
AES/EBU Output - Connects to the XLR digital input of the digital-to-analog converter.
Optical (SPDIF) Output - Connects to the optical input of the the digital-to-analog
converter.
Coaxial (SPDIF) Output - Connect to the coaxial input of the the digital-to-analog
converter.
USB Output - Use any of the two USB ports for USB output. The USB output and SPDIF
outputs will both output signals at the same time.
USB Port - Use any of the two USB ports to copying files from USB memory devices or to
connect an external CD-ROM drive.
Gigabit ethernet port - To connect to networks and Network Attached Storage (NAS)
devices.
Warning - Before connecting audio cables, first check to see that all devices are
grounded using grounded plugs and grounded sockets. All devices should be turned
off, before connecting any audio or digital cables. If the devices are not grounded, a
voltage potential difference between devices can cause a voltage surge through the
audio cable that can weaken and eventually damage sensitive circuits in D/A
converters and other devices.

Quick Start
1. Connections
Connect the AC power cord to the AC socket on the rear panel (2) and power main using
grounded sockets and plugs. Do not turn on the power.
Use an Ethernet cable to connect the Ethernet port on the rear panel (7) to the router. The
router should be connected to the Internet and computer, in order to receive updates and
conveniently transfer files.
Select one of the three digital outputs (AES/EBU, optical, coaxial) on the rear panel (3, 4, 5)
and connect it to a DA converter or an amplifier with a digital input.
Always make sure that all devices are grounded before making any connections. This
should be done by connecting the power cords using grounded plugs and grounded sockets.
In addition, all devices should be turned off. If the devices are not grounded, a voltage
potential difference between devices can cause a voltage surge through the digital cable that
can weaken and eventually damage sensitive circuits in D/A converters and other devices.
2. iPad Application Installation and Set Up
Using the iPad, go to the App Store and type Aurender in the search window. Install the
Aurender Conductor application. The Aurender supports WAV, FLAC, Apple Lossless, AIFF,
and APE formats.
3. Selecting the Aurender Music Server
Open the Aurender application and the Aurender Music Server will be shown on
the Server menu. The Aurender must be connected to the Internet and iPad.
Select the Aurender Music Server by tapping its name.
If no server is listed, tap Add Server at the bottom of the window and a window will appear
asking for the IP address. The IP address can be found by pressing the Display Mode button
on the front panel (top left) and keeping it depressed until the front display changes. Release
the button. Find the IP address and enter. To return the display to the normal mode, press
the Display Mode button again.
4. Enter Passcode
Please enter the Passcode shown on the front display of the Aurender.

5. Manually Checking for Upgrades
Check for the newest version of the firmware and Upgrade to the new version, if needed.
After upgrading, the Aurender will reboot automatically. At this time, the iPad application
needs to be closed and restarted in order to be upgraded also.
6. Setting Time and Language to iPad settings
Time and Language can be set by using the menu at the bottom of the Server tab.
Aurender‟s time and language will be set to the iPad time and language settings.
7. Scan all files using the Scanner menu.
Scanning will continue in the background, even when songs are selected and played. Please
note that it can take hours to scan large libraries.
After scanning is done, a pop up window will appear stating that the database is being
downloaded. If the download fails to finish or gets stuck, please move closer to the wireless
router and press Update song database. The time to download the database varies according
to song database size and wireless connection speed between the wireless router and the
iPad. It can be a few seconds or a few minutes.
6
Note : When new files are added, the Aurender needs to scan the HDD and make a new
database. When the song database is updated after scanning, the iPad needs to download it.
So, even though one song is added to the 50,000 songs database, the iPad needs to
download whole database, but it should take less than a minute.
8. Copying Files to the Aurender
There are three ways to copy files to the Aurender‟s HDD.
1. Use the Ethernet connection to copy files to the Aurender using a PC or Mac.
2. Connect a USB memory to the USB port on the rear panel.
3. Connect a USB CD-ROM drive to the USB port on the rear panel.
PLEASE NOTE: After song files are copied to Aurender, new songs will appear, only after the
files are scanned and the song database transferred to the iPad application. Files will be
scanned automatically one minute after additions or changes to the files.
PC Users
1. Press the Windows + R on your keyboard (START -> RUN).
2. Type in two back slashes (\\) and the IP address of the Aurender. (For example:
\\192.168.1.171). The Aurender IP address can be found in NAS under SETTINGS on the iPad
application.
3. Click OK and a window will appear with a folder labeled „hdd1‟. Open the folder.
4. A popup window will ask for a Username and Password. They can be found in NAS under
SETTINGS in the iPad application.
5. Drag and drop files in to hdd1 or in its sub-folders.
6. Sub-folders may be created, renamed, or deleted. To add a sub-folder, right click on the
white space and go to New -> Folder.
Note: Importing large libraries can take a very long time Importing files in batches is advised.
7
Mac Users
1. Locate the Finder menu bar at the top of your desktop.
2. Click GO -> CONNECT TO SERVER from the navigation bar.
3. Type in „smb://‟ followed by your Aurender‟s IP address. (For example: smb://192.168.1.171)
The IP address can be found under Conductor SETTINGS -> NAS.
4. Click Connect and a window will appear with a folder labeled „hdd1‟. Open the folder.
5. A popup window will ask for a Username and Password. They can be found in the iPad
application under SETTINGS -> NAS.
Note: If the Aurender is connected through a Gigabit network, the transfer speed will be roughly
50MB/sec. It could take 5-6 hours to copy 1TB of files. We recommend copying files in batches.
The Aurender is able to play back music and copy files simultaneously
Copying from USB Memory Devices
Insert a USB memory device already loaded with songs into USB port on the rear panel. In a
moment, the front display will show „USB Copying‟. When all files have been copied, the display
will blink „USB Copying Done‟. If the folder names are the same as the categories in the
Aurender second row (All, Classic, Jazz, Pop, Local), then the files will go into the respective
folders. If the folder names are not the same, then the files will go into Etc.
Copying from USB CD-ROM Drives
Connect a USB CD-ROM Drive to the USB ports and the Aurender will automatically rip the CD
to the HDD and tag songs with information from an internet database. The quality if conversion is
as good as EAC and other leading conversion software. However, please be advised that the
song metadata on Internet databases are often incorrect and need to be checked and edited.
It is much easier to edit song metadata using a PC or Mac. When using a leading converting
software such as dbPoweramp or Exact Audio Copy, there is no loss of data when files are
converted from CDs to uncompressed or lossless format. This is because the original data and
the recorded data are compared until they are exactly the same. If it isn‟t, an error message will
usually appear.
