Thanks for your information. I ordered one 18awg UPOCC silver DC cable to connect LPS1/mR.

microRendu+( not shown Teddy Pardo LPS)>Schiit Yggdrasil DAC>Hegel H360 integrated amp>(not shown KEF Reference 1 speakers+REL T7i subs). I've been iterating on my living room system for several years since I started getting into lossless digital, and it's now as good as anything I could imagine placing in my relatively small living room. The H360 has its own good built-in DAC and Ethernet streamer, but the uRendu>Yggy combo takes the whole to a different plane in clarity, depth, and sound stage.

I had previously posted a photo when the microRendu was driving a Chord Mojo. A Hugo TT replaced the Mojo and an LPS-1 now powers both the microRendu and FMC with a Y-cable.

 

The red Wireworld Ethernet cable is a demo. I usually use a custom Audioquest Carbon CAT700 cable.

That's long since been corrected.  I was just demoing the cable when I took the photo, so it was getting swapped in and out.  I purchased it and it's now pointing in the right direction.

Congratulations! Very nice system and room.

I own the same LPS as yours, Sonore and Uptone.

I understood you are feeding uptone's with sonore's?

Did you try the other way and prefered that?

thanks

Uptone JS-2 powers the mini (via an Uptone MMK power board) and its music hard drive (connected to mini via FW800). Uptone LPS-1 is powered by the included Meanwell SMPS and powers microRendu exclusively. All power cables are Uptone as well.

 

Before I got the LPS-1 I powered the microRendu via the secondary power output in the JS-2. I think the mR on the LPS-1 sounds cleaner and more relaxed compared to the JS-2. I never powered the mR with an SMPS so I don't know what that's like. Once I got the LPS-1 I decided to power all components of the server (mini+HD) off of the JS-2 and the mR off of the LPS-1.

The latest configuration of my home office system. microRendu+Sonore LPS-1>Schiit Bifrost Multibit>Schiit Jotunheim>MrSpeakers Ether C Flow (not shown). I'm waiting for a Holo Spring DAC that might sit in place of the Bimby at some point.

Clean and uncluttered -- very nice!  

 

What USB cables are you using here and in your office?  And what are you using to cradle the microRendu in each system?

 

Thanks.

The cables are the only very short shielded ones I could find: Moon Audio's Blue Dragon USB Cable, 0.5 ft, USB A to USB B. Not cheap, $75 each. The cradles are https://www.amazon.com/Rolodex-Collection-Business-Holder-22251ELD/dp/B00006IAKZ?th=1, which were suggested here by someone else before. The Yggy's USB port is pretty high up on the back, so I stacked the holder+microRendu on top of two of these: http://www.questforsound.com/accessories/acc_sqIsolPads.htm.

Yeah, those cables aren't cheap, but you could spend more -- I've seen 7 inch USB cables going for twice what yours cost.

 

Maybe it's a trick of the photography, but the cradle for your speaker system looks different from the one for your office system.  It looks like it holds the mR on its side rather than on an angle.  

 

Thanks again.
