The AssetNAS V5  is a product of RipNAS family. Its dimensions are very compact (only 3 cm high and 24 cm wide) and can be configured up to 4TB SSD. The AssetNAS V5 is designed for error-free storage of high-resolution material on SSD. As a player, AssetNAS supports both gapless play and DSD files.

High-end audio server (Asset + Roon): The currently best audio server, the asset UPNP server, is used. This supports all high-resolution formats, as well as the DSD format. DSD files are converted to PCM format on the fly for playback on any player. Native DSD playback is supported by the optional JRiver Media Center. In addition, the asset UPNP is the only one who shares all the information in classical music, such as conductor, composer, soloist and many more (full support of the Sonata database). ROON server is also preinstalled.

Error-free storage (SSD): Especially with high-resolution music, error-free storage is important. The AssetNAS D5 is therefore equipped with fast and error-free SSD. In addition, the AssetNAS can also access the music from external USB disks or network drives (for example, a NAS in the basement).

Automatic backup: as soon as an external hard drive is connected via USB, a backup is automatically made daily. A backup can also be made to a network drive. The backed up data is unencrypted on the hard disk.

High end player (KODI, JRiver, Roon):  KODI is already preinstalled. It is operated with an app on an iOS or Android tablet or smartphone. Optionally, JRiver can also be installed for native DSD playback. The output can be made via an analogue output or USB. More and more DACs support the control via USB, in which the digital data can be received unchanged from the DAC. An analog output is also preset via the front headphone output. If a DSD-compatible DAC is connected to USB, the optional JRiver can play native DSD files. Supported audio formats: FLAC, Apple Lossless, MP3, AIFF, WAV, DSF, AAC, WMA and more.

DSD support: The AssetNAS D5 optimally supports the streaming and playback of DSD files. The Asset UPNP server converts the DSD files to PCM un-fly, enabling all UPNP players to play them. In addition, the AssetNAS also supports editing the metadata of DSF files. If a DSD-enabled USB DAC is connected, even native DSD playback (without conversion to PCM) can be performed. The offered JRiver player support native DSD.

One server for all: AssetNAS is a server for all UPnP / DLNA streaming clients, Sonos, Logitech Squeezebox and many more. Every known file format is supported by the server, on-the-fly transcoding is possible.

The AssetNAS and RIPNAS models support  ROON. ROON  brings together music collections from various sources such as iTunes, Tidal, and the RipNAS collection, and supports a variety of network players. Try 60 days of free pre-installation on our RipNAS and AssetNAS.

Modular design: the AssetNAS D5 can be extended by several rip units (AssetNAS RIP) and several  storage units (HFX Tank SMALL). With the rip unit, the AssetNAS becomes a full ripper with Secure Ripping, Accurate Rip and 5 Metadatabases. With the storage unit, the AssetNAS D5 can be extended by currently 8TB SSD. The extension units have the same optical design and can be stacked to a small tower.
