Aurender Users

Hi, I don't know if this has been answered before but I want to ask Aurender users a question.

I'm thinking of buying an Aurender N200 but I can't find a dealer to test it.

For me the most important thing is to be able to discover new music. In the Condutcor app, if you listen to Tidal, does the app give recommendations for similar songs or artists? does it have a "radio" function like Roon?


No conductor is not Roon. However, there are lots of ways to discover new music. A tab with all new albums, new by genre, there are thousands of internet radio stations. Conductor is well regarded and I I cannot say enough about its sound quality, the company, etc. I have no problem discoing new music. But it is not Roon.


I have used Roon. But I own two Aurrender because they are such great streamers. 

Let me clarify a bit since it's not as black and white.

If you like a track in your queue, you can click on the three dots to the right side of the track to load the contextual menu and play "Track Radio". That will queue up a number of relevane tracks based on the selected track.

As you browse artists in the Tidal or Qobuz views of Conductor, there is a menu in the artist page that allows you to see Similar Artists.

Last, there is an option in the settings menu under Streaming that allows you to auto-play at the end of a queue, and this will load similar tracks to the end of your queue so you can keep discovering music.

I am an Aurender dealer and will PM you with some additional details.

+1, @blisshifi 

I am a Roon subscriber and long time Conductor user. And I prefer Conductor app for its simplicity, robustness and sound quality. And N200 is amazing! 

I love my N200.   It is built like a tank , sounds awesome, and has a great interface.   They just launched the Beta of V Tuner or V Radio ... whatever they call it.  It has a lot of great stations across the country you can add as presets.  

You can leave it in a mode where it will play similar artists on Qobuz.   I also have Tidal on that machine but I tend to use Qobuz more.     I think Tidal does the same thing


+1 Well put. If you use to use the tool (Conductor), there are ample ways to discover new music.

@blisshifi Thank you very much for your detailed answer. It's just what I was looking for.


Another question: when you save a song in a playlist, do you store it directly in Tidal/Qobuz or in a Conductor playlist?

@opm you can choose to do either. If it includes local files on my drive as well as streaming, I use the Conductor playlist. But those are not portable, so in most cases I make playlists on my streaming platform of choice. 

It is possible to add tracks to a Qobuz playlist from within Conductor. 

Patience may be the way to go on this one. My local hifi dealer told me Aurender is going to add Roon ready to their line-up soon. Looks like I will be trading in my AuralicVega2 in the future. The N200 is a great unit. If you love your dac then I would highly recommend it. I have to admit I really like the Aurender sound and would buy something from the A series (dac included). Happy hunting. As far as finding a dealer, it would be worth a road trip.

“Someone asked about whether or not Roon will ever make it to Aurender? 

ANSWER: They said that with the new line that utilizes Intel instead of AMD, that they are working on a Roon Ready status for Aurender. It won’t be able to run as a Roon Core, but the current generation, will hopefully at some point, become Roon Ready in the same way that so many other devices are Roon Ready.  

They still feel that Conductor will sound better because it’s purpose built precisely for the Aurender hardware, but it does seem that Roon will become a viable option on the Aurender platform.  It won’t work on the older AMD centric Aurender lines, only on the latest releases”. 

For more info, please search on does Aurender support Roon   I hope this help   


I thank Juan from @blisshifi  for suggesting and supplying my Aurender N20.  I’m not fully aware of the differences between my streamer and the ones below and above, but short of hearing the various models back to back I’m pleased with what I  have.

Conductor does fall short of the Roon UI, but I have only found one issue with Conductor and this might just be due to my lack of understanding.  The search within Conductor is simple and you can search within certain categories such as artist, album, or song.  This works great for music that isn’t recorded by tens, or hundreds of different groups, people..etc.  So, a short time ago there was a thread asking what recording had the best soundstage.  Unfortunately, especially with popular classical pieces, searching for the “song name” can result in many performances.  How can I search for a particular performance/recording/orchestra/conductor using the app Conductor?

@vonhelmholtz I realize I never replied to your direct inquiry to me on this in the past, my apologies. Yes, sometimes the categorization makes it seem hard to find complex pieces like that. That said, you can do song names that include the orchestra or conductor name as well, and it typically still brings up results. You are not limited to only using song names in the search under Songs. I do this all the time with non-classical music as well.

@vonhelmholtz, If your "Conductor App does not provide searching capabilities for a particular performance/recording/orchestra/conductor using the App Conductor, please send Aurender an email requesting this capability. You should include some reasons why this search capability is important to you.

please send your email to

It is very important for Aurender have your request for Conductor App capabilities so they can consider adding it to future release upgrades.

BTW, Aurender Customer Support might have an answer to your search request with the existing version. I do not know.
