I post a lot more information here so this is your best bet.

 

Keys things to know:

1. opticalRendu - optical cable input and USB-Audio output. coming soon.

2. opticalModule - optical Ethernet to cable Ethernet converter or cable Ethernet to optical Ethernet converter. coming shortly after #1 above. 

3. SFP - Small Form-Factor Pluggable transceiver. These SFPs plug into the network slot of the opticalRendu, opticalModule or your switch. We are providing these with our gear and the optical cable connects to it. 

4. Starter kit - Generic accessories bundled together to get you started with optical networking.

 

Jesus,

For your consideration:

How about offering a 2nd SFP as an option?  I have fiber today but with a different connector, so I'd need another SFP to plug into my router anyway.  Keeps it simple!

If you already have a fiber cable to your equipment comming from a switch with fiberoutput for example you can use that directly to an opticalrendu or a use a opticalmodule to get ordinary ethernet to a renderer.

or just a different cable?  Cable providers will terminate with different connectors to suit, as long as you have a Gigabit SFP.  Fantastic quality optical cable is cheaper than good quality CAT 6A...

We will have an option for this in the drop down menu when you order the unit.

Jesus,

Any chance of an aes/ebu output from the opticalRendu?

The opticalRendu has only USB output and it will pear up nicely with an ultraDigital which has SPDIF via BNC.

I connected an ultraRendu to a Chord Qutest. Will the OpticalRendu sound better when replacing the UltraRendu?

I don’t get into these types of comparisons. There will be plenty of feedback from users when we start shipping.

Updates:

 

Roon certification is nearly complete. The hardware has passed their certification process and we just owe them some artwork which we will submit right away. The next release of Roon should have the opticalRendu intigrated in.

 

As a reminder if you are interested in the opticalRendu please me at [email protected] with subject line opticalRendu.
