We at Aune were the first to launch a mastering-level digital-audio player in China, along with its 32bit/192kHz advanced decoder. We also championed the development of personal computers integrated with traditional audio equipment, with a high-end USB decoder - along with a traditional CD turntable.
Our mindset of pursuing perfection in audio is endless, and we recognize that it is an ascent that has no finality to it. All facets of our company hold dear this ideology, from manufacturing, customer service and research and development.
We sprang up from the design-driven audio community in China, with our HIFIDIY.NET website having nearly 1,000,000 members registered since 2004. This was our foundation and it is what motivates us every day, so many years later.
Software ,hardware & specifications
Aune firmly believes that the best hardware, together with most dedicated software solution, are the most solid foundation for best sound. With our choice of premium parts, a unique software solution built from the ground up, over a decade of engineering experience in hi-fi design and a passion for music, Aune is striving to deliver the best listening experience for the world.
The M1s is the world’s first balanced portable DAP with pure native decoding. It comprises of an entirely in-house firmware that is dedicated to your enjoyment in the purest form, which has been perfected over the years with the success of M1, M2, M2 Pro and X5s. Unlike most common Linux-based digital-audio player solutions, Aune believes that a completely in-house developed firmware, written in C language, is the only way of ensuring the best sound quality from its very core. With their in-house ARM + CPLD architecture, and a rewritten DSP for the ESS 9012K2M chip, by bypassing the ASRC system - the M1s supports WAV, FLAC, APE, DSD and ISO up to 32bit/384k, along with DSD128 audio files with cue support in its purest form.
The S6 inherits the superior product design of X1s and S16 and supports 32bit/DSD playback with a revolutionary THD+n of 0.0006%, with ultra low distortion, and is fully feature-packed with USB/COAX/OPT/AES digital inputs and RCA/XLR balanced outputs. The S6 is a high-end all-in-one ultra user-friendly solution for both speakers and headphones at a very affordable price.
The S7 uses the Titans Artemis’ amp circuit, which is critically well-respected globally
Key word: excellent hardware specs
To achieve our vision for stellar sound reproduction, we employ both technology and artistic sense. Tuning is the key behind audio products, and our philosophy is that the sound must be balanced and natural.
Here are some of our musical references for tuning
Design & quality
All Aune Products are born of their own industrial design team with the simple belief that being original is the key behind success. As a company, they have decided on the minimalist black and white design aesthetic.
The M1s, S6 and S7 are the new products with this mindset.
