Can anyone confirm the current demands for the opticalModule at 5v?  

This is going to be somewhat dependent on the sample rate one is streaming.  And boot up is going to require more current than running it.  We recommend a power supply capable of 1A output at 5VDC.  In use while streaming DSD 256 (4x) I have about 500 mA current use.

Just received an Allo Shanti with both 5v/1A and 5v/3A so will give both a try in time.  I'm running DSD 512 so likely on the higher side I guess (50mbit/s).

The 1A supply will be entirely adequate.

Call for testers


Is anyone interested in testing the following connection scheme and providing feedback here on CA?

Router - cable Ethernet - microRendu or ultraRendu   

versus

Router - cable Ethernet - opticalModule with linear supply - cable Ethernet - microRendu or ultraRendu

 

You will need a gigabit only RJ-45 SFP transceiver

I tried the RJ-45 SFP  transceiver on the link without any luck.

Thanks however Im using the RJ45 adapter not fiber. I used the amazon link provided on the post. 
 

Ethernet to OpticalModual to RJ45 adapter Ethernet out to UltraRendu to DAC.

The RJ45 transceiver is 1000 speed only. I just tested connecting the RJ45 transceiver to the router and the regular RJ45 to a ultraRendu. This is working fine for me.

Just a quick update. The TPLink upgrade worked. Sounds immediately great! 
 

thanks for walking me through.

When do the “preorder for Feb 20th” units actually ship?  I’m eager to get mine.

I've noticed that when using Roon the orange light on my two opticalModules stays on continuously, even when playing 16/44 files. I have two other renderers here and when streaming to each, the orange light flashes. Any idea why I'm seeing this and does it mean anything as far as RAAT goes? I ask because I am still trying to determine why Roon sounds so bad in my set up, wondering if RAAT is overloading something in my network.

Sounds like something is wrong, you should have a solid green light on the oMs.  I am no Networking expert though...  What is the Network path?  Note the oM needs to be using Gigabit devices.

 

Nice system BTW!

The Green light needs to be on as well. I’m currently showing my father-in-law how to use a system I set up for him streaming via Shairport and the orange light stays on as well. 

Yes, one light is always on, looks more yellow than green to me. The orange light is the one that usually flashes on & off. I don’t think anything is wrong with oM units, just different behavior with Roon. I guess there is nothing sinister going on with RAAT. Thanks for responses.
