Thanks, Barrows. I will email Jesus for upgrade information. In my experience with automotive applications, carbon fiber can be crazy expensive even for small pieces, but the top of a Sig SE cabinet isn't huge. 

I think Jesus was just looking for some feedback on the idea, we are certainly not prepared to offer the carbon fiber top panel yet.

Thanks for the clarification. My input: depends entirely on the cost. :)

Hi, are there plans to include I2S out on future design revisions?

Personally, I2S is a rather weak format, and well implemented USB is superior, especially with the quality of the USB output from the Signature.  We do offer the ultraDigital as a solution for those who must have I2S or SPDIF capability, and it works very, very well in concert with the Signature Rendu SEoptical.  See here:

Thank you for replying, I do own the OpR and the UltraDigital, and so far found no difference between using I2S and USB with my Holo Spring but my system is still new and burning in and havent had the chance for more in depht testing.

Still, when considering the possibility of upgrading in the future, droping the use of an extra box (and PSU since I have the old design of the Ultra) would be nice. But I do hear you, and see the potential drawbacks to have an extra, not used output, that also adds to final cost

What output protocol are you using on your Rendu?

Sorry if I dont get your question straight, but I send USB to the Spring 3 KTE. Last week my UDigital arrived (got it used) and I installed it for a week but as mentioned found it non superior to the USB. I mostly use use qobuz with hqplayer via roon. So, 768 with USB and used 384 with i2S. Again, I didnt do any real testing with matched rates etc, but may do later. In general my ears can't really detect any change of sampling rates but so far I seen to prefer using HQplayer than straight qobuz or roon.

I am not surprised: given the quality of the USB output of the Signature, and the USB input on the Spring 3 KTE, I would expect USB to provide the best performance possible (given a quality USB cable as well, it matters at this level) and there would be no reason to mess with the added complexity and jitter of I2S connections.
