The RIPNAS is now available in version 7, now with Windows 11 Pro 64 and PerfectTunes!

The RipNAS V7 is a high-end audio server for up to 2*4TB SSD, up to Intel i9, Windows 11 Pro and HFX support via Teamviewer.

Compared to its predecessor, the V7 has a faster CPU (up to Intel i9), is easy to expand with tanks up to 120TB and can be easily cascaded with up to 5 drives simultaneously. The V7 is also easy to operate and connect with Windows 11.

Why more power?

Players such as Roon run at 1080p and 50 frames per second, including audio analysis in the background. The HFX AUDIO and Cinema models support ROON as standard. ROON combines music collections from various sources such as iTunes, Tidal and your own collection and supports a wide range of network players. Try it free of charge for 60 days pre-installed on our HFX Audio models.

The better ROON server

The RIPNAS V7 can do the same as the Nucleus plus:
✔ Unencrypted backup to USB to go
✔ is also a standalone high-end ROON player via ROON Brigde
✔ is a high-end ROON SACD/DSD player via HQ Player
✔ supports all Windows 10 DACs
✔ supports all Windows 10 DACs
✔ can rip up to 4 CDs simultaneously with 4 USB drives.
✔ German Teamviewer support

High-end audio server (Asset+Roon): The best audio server currently available, the Asset UPNP server, is used. This supports all high-resolution formats, including the DSD format. DSD files are converted to PCM format on the fly so that they can be played back with any player. Native DSD playback is supported by the optionally available JRiver Media Centre. In addition, the Asset UPNP is the only one to pass on all information for classical music, such as conductor, composer, soloist and much more (full support of the Sonata database). ROON server is also pre-installed.

...

Error-free storage (SSD): Error-free storage is particularly important for high-resolution music. The AssetNAS D5 is therefore equipped with fast and error-free SSDs. The AssetNAS can also access music from external USB discs or network drives (e.g. a NAS in the basement).

...

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

...

High-end player (KODI, JRiver, Roon): KODI is already pre-installed. It is operated using an app on an iOS or Android tablet or smartphone. JRiver for native DSD playback can also be installed as an option. Output can be via an analogue output or USB. More and more DACs support control via USB, where the digital data can be received unchanged by the DAC. Analogue output is also preset via the front headphone output. If a DSD-compatible DAC is connected to USB, the optionally available JRiver can play back DSD files natively. Supported audio formats: FLAC, Apple Lossless, MP3, AIFF, WAV, DSF, AAC, WMA and more.

...

DSD support: The AssetNAS optimally supports the streaming and playback of DSD files. The Asset UPNP server converts the DSD files to PCM on-the-fly, allowing all UPNP players to play them. The AssetNAS also supports editing the metadata of DSF files. If a DSD-capable USB DAC is connected, native DSD playback (without conversion to PCM) is even possible. The JRiver player on offer supports 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.

...

Why more power?
Players such as Roon run at 1080p and 50 frames per second, including audio analysis in the background. The JRIVER also analyses the audio and pre-calculates the data for perfect playback. A lack of computing capacity during playback results in missing data and therefore a lower sound depth.

Performance is important for large collections, ROON, high-resolution music and DSD. Especially when on-the-fly conversion is required.

If the RIPNAS is only used for RIPPING and as a UPNP server, the Celeron with 8GB RAM is completely sufficient. If the RIPNAS is also used as a player and a DAC is connected via USB, then at least an i5 is recommended. For comparison, we list the benchmark values from Passmark for each configuration.
