  1. The following outputs are available / user selectable: 1. No DSP or bit perfect playback. Default recommended for bit perfect playback of any bitrate / sample rate. 2. SoX DSP filter= Very high quality, steep, 32 bit floating point precision, minimum phase response, resampled content to 88.2kHz. Recommended for 16bit 44.1kHz content (Redbook CD / Tidal "HiFi") or 24bit 44.1kHz content (Tidal "Master"). 3. SoX DSP filter = Very high quality, steep, 32 bit floating point precision, minimum phase response, resampled content to 96kHz. Recommended for 24bit 48kHz content (Tida
  2. This SoX digital signal processing will work with any DLNA/UPnP playback on the Rendu. However, this is more a fun project than a serious attempt to add DSP to Sonic Orbiter OS. Remember the Rendu series is based on a low power CPU and it may not be able to do all that you want. Anyway, this DSP configuration is specifically setup for the 16bit 44.1kHz, 24bit 44.1kHz, and 24bit 48kHz content.
  3. We have a lot of customers that use Tidal via the MPD/DLNA output protocol on Sonic Orbiter OS running on a Rendu. Some are using the mConnect mobile app to stream their local content and some are streaming from Tidal directly. As you know...Tidal now has selectable quality modes named "HiFi" and "Master" with HiFi being 16bit 44.1kHz and Master being a mix of 24bit 44.1kHz and 24bit 48kHz. In order to giver our customers better experience with the Tidal "HiFi" and "Master" content we have implemented a proprietary protocol called SMQA. WTF is SMQA...it's Sonore Master Quality Alternative. SMQ
  4. Attention CA Members - Andrew G. from SGC is live right now on a Zoom session discussing The Ultimate Digital Audio Source. Join on the Zoom session here: Webinars (axpona.com) *The Zoom session has ended.
  5. We decided to redesign the original ultraRendu to improving some components and upgrading others. We think you will be thrilled with the Sonore ultraRendu v1.2. So what's new? 1. We wound up redoing a lot of the power network. The new capacitors available now are much better than what was available when this board was done originally so we redid every capacitor on the board. Just this alone of very exciting. 2. We replaced two of the TI regulators with three LT3045s. 3. The LVDS clock driver has been replaced with a very low phase noise driver. 4. Improved the USB
  6. From the batteries Archimago used and FYI John didn't use a DAC in his measurements;) Disprove the two measurements and present your data or no one will accept your replay.
  7. Not according to measurements from Archimago posted here: Archimago's Musings: MEASUREMENTS: On the value for ethernet "galvanic isolation"... According to the article, "Over the years, I have already demonstrated that ethernet works well as a means of digital audio data transmission. I have never found any differences in cables used, and sound quality is fine whether used locally or transmitted globally. But what about this issue of the possibility of electrical interference and the potential for improvement with galvanic isolation? Well, I think I can show what in practice succes
  8. I'm building a database of USB devices that support native DSD and I need your help! If you have a Rendu and use any of the devices listed below please email me the complete output of Apps/DAC Diagnostics to [email protected] Just copy/paste everything from the DAC Description down. Thank you in advance. ************************************************************************************************************************************** Accuphase DC-901 / DP-720 / DP-550 / DP-410 / DAC-40 Accuphase DC-950 /
  9. Some clarifications: 1. We do make an all in one in a fancy case with a fancy power supply of our own design seen here on our website https://www.sonore.us/Signature-Rendu-SE.html 2. The optical output of the oM is bi-directional optical ethernet and not proprietary. This makes it easy to hook up to existing optical networks. Like he said though it's 100% galvanically isolated:) https://www.sonore.us/opticalModule-Deluxe.html
  10. Simon Price of 13th Note HiFi Reviews just did a great video where he reviews all the major music streamers.
  11. AND I'm happy to announce that we are expanding our power supply business to include more voltage output options so you can now power a wide range of products. We currently offer: 7 VDC output @1.5A continuous (recommended for our micro/ultra/opticalRendu, opticalModule, and ultraDigital) Very soon we will also be offering: 5.0 VDC output @1.5A continuous (recommended for our endPoint series) We are also looking at offering: 9.0 VDC output @1A continuous 12.0 VDC output @ 2A continuous
  12. I have no idea why anyone would want to do this. Please note that these are not Sonore systemOptique certified. As such, we will not provide support for them. We have not tested them, do not plan to test them, they may create problems with your Sonore gear, and we reserve the right to limit your warranty accordingly. That said...we do like Finisar transceivers and have been working to provide a 1.25Gb/s one for sale on our website that is Sonore systemOptique certified. Special thanks to an AS member who has been providing information/feedback behind the scenes. Anywa
