Digital File Player: SPDIF out

Recommended Posts

Hi folks,

Casually looking around, and curious.


I am about $3000 all-in to a Sonore UltraRendu and Gustard U16 with cables and such....


Want to get rid of the 4 boxes going into my APL and also improve things. 


Less than zero interest in getting anything that has either a built in DAC or HD.


I do not like Auralic products and would never entertain buying anything from them...


So far, - what i see out there is...


Lumin U1, - at $6K retail... pretty pricey.....

DCS Network Bridge, - pretty pricey also, - but definitely in-line with my budget.

Bricasti streamer, - (don’t know model).


I hear some reports that the DCS NB is really awesome, - others, - no better than the Sonore Sig...


I have had all of the Sonore streamers in my system except the Sig, all the Razberri Pi’s, a SotM and the Directstream DAC with a bridge card....


Not willing to discuss replacing or changing DACs. 


Is there any other really good device that I’m missing? 


Maybe I should just pull the trigger on a Signature Rendu with an Audio GD HE20???

There's also a U1 MINI which is much cheaper.  For SPDIF output, it is functionally the same as the U1 other than the LPS and the heavy aluminium chassis.

It uses Amanero USB module.  If you plan to use a Linux-based USB streamer like our product or another brand you mentioned, I recommend you make sure it's running firmware no earlier than 2006BE10.
