  1. Thanks, I was thinking about the receiving opticalModule not the transmitting opticalModule. Also, remember the opticalModule is bi-directional and be used optical in and Ethernet out so you want a linear supply powering the receiving opticalModule.
  2. Try this in order: Remove the power cable from the Rendu and the DAC. Connect the power cable to the DAC and power it on. Connect the power cable to the Rendu. Go to Apps / DAC Diagnostics and confirm the DAC is present. Go to Settings / Roon Ready and press Save. Go to Roon / Settings / Audio and enable the Rendu.
  3. I'm not followng this logic. The optical signal on the opticalModule is 100% galvanically isolated. We also recommend a separate power supply for the opticalModule and linear power supplies have built in isolation via their transformers.
  4. I'll let you know when the work is done.
  5. We need to update the operating system and the application we use in order to fix it.
  6. Try this in order: Remove the power cable from the Rendu and the USB Device. Connect the power cable to the USB Device and power it on. Connect the power cable to the Rendu. On the Rendu go to Apps / DAC Diagnostics and confirm the USB Device is present. On the Rendu go to Settings / MPD DLNA and press Save. Play something and confirm you have a Momentary Frequency in Apps / DAC Diagnostics. You have to reset the webpage to get new data from it.
  7. Try this in order: Update the Rendu from Apps / Software manager, wait for the Back to Main Menu Link to appear. Remove the power cable from the Rendu and the USB Device. Connect the power cable to the USB Device and power it on. Connect the power cable to the Rendu. On the Rendu go to Apps / DAC Diagnostics and confirm the USB Device is present. On the Rendu go to Settings / Roon Ready and press Save. Go to Roon / Settings / Audio and enable the Rendu. In Roon select the Rendu for playback.
  8. I have a pretty simple network. Router, switch, and wired home runs to various drops. One drop to a wifi access point in the center of the house. The audio room has a dedicated opticalModule for my Rendu. I also have one massive upgrade (being sarcastic) and it’s a battery back unit for my router, switch, access point, and NAS.
  9. Your right I didn’t understand your point. Your network and all the stuff connected to it is what you can’t isolate completely with your scheme. Your network gear has some inherent galvanic isolation, but for 100% galvanic isolation from your network you need a fiber optic bridge.
  10. I moved the DAC comparison posts here: https://audiophilestyle.com/forums/topic/56819-compare-the-bartók-to-dave/
  11. Fiber optic networking gives you 100% galvanic isolation from your network. Connect fiber optic to the opticalModule and connect the RJ-45 end to your streamer.
  12. And to think some people wait up to a year or more for our competitions power supply:) Enjoy!
  13. A lot of people used an LPS-1 for these comparisons and it was later updated to the LPS-1.2 because it was as found to have some AC leakage. The Rendu was professionally reviewed with our power supply. Agree that the power supply matters and some are better than others. I’m not sure how much more isolation you can get:) The opticalModule has one bi-directional input/output. The developers of the Chord Dave DAC and the reviewer’s TotalDAC both state that their USB inputs are not their best input. So any difference is probably more a DAC issue than a source issue.
  14. The search engine doesn’t have any issues finding the MQA thread:)
