Sonore ultraRendu

Recommended Posts

Does anybody know if Ultrarendu have (or will have) auto standby mode complied with Roon latest update 1.7 (536)?

Unfortunately, I can’t find it in Device Setup Menu as it mentioned by Roon...

After trying several one box solutions, I am considering returning back to a UltraRendu especially with the 2.8 software upgrade lending more stability.

 

I have couple hurdles to get past to take me back towards the Sonore. 
 

I do half of my listening to Radio Paradise, an Internet based radio site that I am addicted to, it's my go to spot for new music. I’m not sure if this is accessible via the UltraRendu. You can stream Radio Paradise from some devices at full FLAC Quality and other devices it’s its as low as 320. It’s a pretty popular site so I was wondering if any one has been able to access this with some application on the UR?

 

I plan to power it with an Uptone audio Ultracap ps. I’ve heard the DC cable can really improve the sound quality. Could someone please recommend a DC cable to connect them.

any help would be appreciated.

I used here ultraRendu + LPS-1.2 + Ghent DC with Gotham cable as short as possible 0.3m. Now I use the LPS-1.2 with the ISO Regen downstream, and power the ultraRendu with Sonore's own LPS.

+1 on that cable, though in my case it's between LPS-1 and microRendu. I have several DC cables, a few I made myself with Canare wire and Oyaide plugs, and the others I bought from Ghent.

 

I think in my system there is no mistaking the Ghent version with Gotham GAC-4/1, JSSG360, and the Oyaide DC plugs is best sounding, and shorter is better though maybe not quite as ultra critical as some would make it out to be, but a long run is ill-advised. My 2-cents.

I don't know about Radio Paradise, but maybe LMS supports it. If not, then Shairport would be another option via iOS devices. We sell a nice DC cable on our website made in the US.

Radio Paradise is on Roon Live Radio.  Main, Mellow, and Rock mixes.  They were a little hard to locate but they are there.

The Radio Paradise .flac stream is available with Volumio, just a quick install of that plugin is necessary, then it can be streamed to any of the available renderer types including UPnP, which is the way I do it.

 

It is also available on JRiver Media Center, version 24 and up, however I can't seem to start/control it from anything but the server itself.

Volume is a paid subscription? JRiver would work then on the Rendu with Radio Paradise .flac stream.

The Radio Paradise FLAC streaming plug-in for LMS is excellent. The latest version adds the ability to login to your RP account to rate tracks and access favorites.

RP is now a plug-in on LMS...or you can enter the URL address that was posted on the forum...maybe in Software?  I can post pics tomorrow.

 

Note:  QLMS is LMS ported to x86 CPU QNAP NAS systems.  It automatically downloads the latest nightly build and is brilliant.  Much more stable than LMS on a pc.  I stream to my Touch.

I do not have the paid version of Volumio, but I was perfectly able to install the RP plugin and listen to the .flac stream. Perhaps they changed something recently and now only include that on their paid tier?

 

I do however need to amend my statement on JRiver, the stream to a UPnP renderer is being transcoded to AAC320. I have no idea why as this was originally not the case, however I just checked and though I can start the stream from the server and direct it to a renderer, it is AAC320.

Looking at how your currently configured, the ISO Regen must have benefitted more from the LPS-1.2 than the UltraRendu.  Did you upgrade the DC cable on the SGC power supply? It looks like the SGC power supply has a different ID (2.5mm) barrel connection than the UltraRendu’s more standard 2.1mm. Why would SGC incorporate a different less standard size barrel connectors on their ps when it would apparently require a different barrel connectors at each end of their DC cable to power a Rendu?

Guess I can’t hide ignorance of several concepts here apparently available via Sonicorbiter. What is LMS?  How do I install the Radio Paradise FLAC streaming plug-in on the UltraRendu? really like the idea of have control of my Radio Paradise account.

It has been common in the past for the PS output to be 5.5x2.5 and device input to be 5.5x2.1.

LMS is Logitech Media Server. The current version is 7.9 last time I checked. It is on Sonic Orbiter and is available for other platforms.

I don't have a SGC power supply, mine is Sonore's, made by barrows here from AS.

It has more current and better regulation than the LPS-1.2 and is opticalRendu ready whenever I can upgrade.

Okay. Then it’s just LMS which is very good with all kinds of internet radio streams.

It is also available on a range of Synology NAS units.  Indeed, I can have my 718+ up for months on end without need for updates or rebooting.  Housed centrally allows me to drive multiple players around the house. 

 

Michael Berger has now released 8.0 which is great for those who use Tidal or Qobuz.  It can optionally place "favorites" in your regular album or new music lists.

Exactly. It's just that simple once you have LMS ("Squeezebox Server") and Squeezelite running on your ultraRendu.To install them go to the management page, and in the Apps tab open Software Manager. (I have LMS on a separate Sonicorbiter server.)

 

If you want use your RP account to rate tracks and access favorites, go to the Advanced tab, select Radio Paradise from the menu, and enter your username and password. This is not required.

 

LMS and all plugins are free. I highly recommend the Material Design plugin, and for Windows the Squeezelite-X player:
