    That is odd. What switches do you have set?

    Not really...its only there as a warning so I don't get emails that a unit is warm during use.

    Matt, the LPS-1 can output 1.1V per Alex. The amperage of the DAC is about 500mA. The units use about 600mA. It's close, but I spoke with Alex and he was fine with it. No issues to report with other USB powered DACS used with Rendu world wide.

    Yes, the DAC only uses about 500mA at 5V so no worries.

    What I want to emphasize here is that if you use a opticalModule with a micro/ultraRendu you are interconnecting the two units via RJ45 cable. As an extention of the Rendu’s capabilities in adding optical networking we have designed the opticalModule with all the design considerations of the Rendu itself. This is the difference between our FMC and a generic FMC which has been design at a price point.

    Updates: Roon certification is nearly complete. The hardware has passed their certification process and we just owe them some artwork which we will submit right away. The next release of Roon should have the opticalRendu intigrated in. As a reminder if you are interested in the opticalRendu please me at [email protected] with subject line opticalRendu.

    I don’t get into these types of comparisons. There will be plenty of feedback from users when we start shipping.

    We have some ideas about this, but it’s a fairly complex and expensive undertaking to accomplish.

    Correct. Not sure because I don’t have one. I can try it with an iFi iPower supply later today. It uses USB-C.

    Typically, if it works on Linux it works on a Mac and the other way around. We have not tested it though so it’s not a qualification.

    You are on your own until you buy and hook it up to a Rendu via USB.

    You can use it with any device you want, but I don't have time to support customers who want to connect them to Windows and Mac computers. If you use it with a Rendu then no worries...I'll provide support as expected.

    I really want to keep the SPDIF input for selfish reasons:) This product is meant to be simple and fun to use...It's nice to offer something like this to our customers in a matching case. The USB port is what powers the unit. In my case yesterday the microRendu, which is always on, was powering the unit when I was watching TV via the SPDIF input.
