What sample rate, bit rate, and format are the files? Playlist or one album at a time? Which output mode? 

 

I player AIFF and FLAC files through HQPlayer NAA. The sample rate is either 352k of 128DSD, 24 bit.  One album at a time.

My mR 1.4 has worked great for a year or two.  It has the 2.7 Sonicorbiter SD card.

 

But recently my mR has been reluctant to reboot.

 

I often need to reboot as I'm still switching between Roon and Audirvana - can't decide which I prefer.  I'm finding that rebooting when I switch has become extremely difficult, requiring lots of repeated efforts.

 

Any suggestions?

A new micro SD card might improve things. Instead of rebooting during switching just go to Settings and press Save for the output mode you want to use.

Hi, long time user of the Rendu. from micro to ultra now. Love it. 

 

First post cause I never had any issue until today. No idea what I did but the Ultrarendu is not working anymore. Power up ok, red light turned to amber. But never to green (honestly never know what color is the final one). The problem is the ethernet RJ45 light not flashing anymore. Nothing. Obviously can't see anything in the network and not able to connect. 

 

I read several pages looks like the next step is to order a new SD card to try? I'm on 2.7.  I'm gonna order the card tmr unless there's something obvious. I'm using the 7V SGC linear supply.

 

Thanks, Tom.

Another ominous misbehavior tonight.  My mR 1.4 just cut out for about 30 secs.  Lost it connection.  Then found it again by itself. This is new and frankly it’s disheartening.  Once upon a time we bought equipment fully expecting it to last (many) years.  Hopefully we haven’t yet reached the point where 2 years is all that’s expected.

This sounds like a power blip. Check your power supply and if you have an alternate, power it with that and see if the problem persists. I had the same issue on my mR and it turned out my LPS-1was failing so Alex at Uptone replaced it as mine was still under warranty at the time.

I'm using a PS Audio Directstream DSD like many on here it seems.  Also like many others, I can't figure out the pattern to connect the OpticalRendu to the DS to save my life.  I think I've finally figured out (from reading much of this thread) how to connect the OR to the network regularly (boot it without the optical connection, let it run for a few minutes, then plug in the optical cable), but I can't figure out how to make it connect via the USB to DAC with any sort of predictability or guaranty.  I've tried it with two different USB DACs and 3 USB cables...nothing works off the bat.  I left the house for 6 hours and when I came back this evening it was magically connected to the Music Hall DAC I was using to test (and it played songs fine it seemed), but unfortunately that's the not the DAC for my main listening (the DirectStream is).  I thought I had it connected to the DirectStream this morning (DS USB light showed green, OpticalRendu showed up in Roon), but just got the "Roon spin through song after song in the playlist without playing" behavior that others seem to get sometimes too.  I tried HQPlayer and that exhibited the same behavior.  So I started an hour long reboot session which never got me "connected" again.

 

I bought the Roon-only version of the OR a few weeks back, and then got it working after about an hour, and the thing sounded amazing, so I ironically ordered another one for my other system (the full version).  But I haven't yet gotten the second one to boot up and connect.  BTW, I can connect to it via the Spotify and Airplay connections but it won't play and connect to the DAC with any of those connections either, so I do NOT think Roon is part of the problem.

 

Unless there's a guaranteed pattern to connect to the DACs that I'm missing, I'm afraid this product doesn't seem ready for primetime which is really, really unfortunate because it sounds so good when it works.

 

What am I missing?

OK, I changed the order of firing up things.  I booted up the PS DirectStream DAC first, with the USB cable connected to the OR, but with the OR unplugged (powered down).  Once the DS was fully booted, with the optical network cable unplugged on the OR, I booted the OR up until it's light turns yellow from red.  Then I plugged in the optical cable, and it all seems to be working now.  If this was clearly spelled out before in the thread or in instructions somewhere, I missed it.  Let's see if it maintains it's connection.

Hello,

Apologies upfront as I can imagine my issue has surfaced many times.

Can't get audio when using ROON or iTunes. Shairport for iTunes, right? Any help greatly appreciated!
