  1. Here is what I think is going on. Sonicorbiter.com remembers the mR, but it’s not actually seeing the unit because it’s not booting up. More likely than not the micro SD card is bad. Pick up a new micro SR card from our website under Software.
  2. Ayre has conformed that that have only "one" product (Ayre QB-9 Twenty) that supports raw or native DSD. We are updating our OS again to support the Ayre QB-9 Twenty. I'll keep you posted. Thanks to Chris C and Ariel B for your support.
  3. Andrew at SGC sells a dedicated Sonore UPnP Bridge. https://www.smallgreencomputer.com/collections/accessories/products/upnpbridge?variant=6964135395362
  4. Thanks for asking. The main difference is the amount of support that goes into the product. Customer support and application support are less since there is only one output protocol. The hardware is slightly different so the operating system can tell them apart. It's a great product....purchase with confidence.
  5. Please post the complete output of Apps / DAC Diagnostics for your DAC.
  6. I don’t think is that similar anymore. They appear to behind on all the apps and very likely behind on the Linux Kernel as well.
  7. There is no specific timeline as it's just a fun side project. However, DIY send/receive i2s boards should be ready in about 2 months if preliminary testing goes well. The boards are low voltage and low current...something like 5 VDC at 1 amp.
  8. The Sonore Lumiere Series is point to point optical streaming hardware for digital signals. This series of products provides 100% galvanic isolation from source to receiver and can transmit across the room or across a football field at the speed of light. The prototype boards should arrive soon and I'll have some images then. For now here is a diagram of the anticipated series of products which are aimed at the audiophile and professional markets. Feel free to post any questions or comments below.
  9. The Chord HugoTT2 and the Chord Qutest discussed earlier in the thread appear to be based on the Amanero USB interface. The Amanero USB interface has various specific firmwares for different OS and sample rates. The development of these firmware's have had a lot of issues and I'm not to confident in them as of yet. These devices may not be running the correct firmware for Linux or very high sample rates. I have no way to qualify if your servers are capable of resampling and streaming these rates over a network. I would discuss the settings with Roon or HQ Player or you may relax them somewhat to achieve reliable playback. On the Rendu I would recommend using SonicOrbiter 2.8 (updated regularly) and keeping the unit cool during playback at these very high sample rates. With your power supply do not use 5 VDC output and confirm that it is capable of 1.5 amp continuous / 2 amp peak at 6 VDC.
  10. Flow control would something worth looking into. I’m not sure what version of SO he is running, but a I would also think about updating it.
  11. I’m not aware of anything in the Rendu that would make one channel act differently from the other.
  12. Antelope Audio has a bunch of different USB devices with varying levels of support on Linux. The intent of this thread is to provide Antelope Audio users updated information on the status of these devices on the Rendu series. I have very limited information on the Antelope Audio USB DAC series. If you have a Sonore Rendu or SGC Transporter and have an Antelope Audio USB DAC please let me know here so I can get some information from the device and explore compatibility.
