  1. It seems to mee that an usb to HMDI conversions is “easy”. Cheap converters exists. Maybe in a future HW upgrade for the Rendu HMDI should be part of a new output? What would talk against such an upgrade ? My multichannel DAC only has HMDI, so that’s why asking.
  2. Possible to define what’s the differences are ? Maybe @JohnSwenson can explain ? Is it to expect same SQ ?
  3. @vortecjr In order to get future updates, like Roon, do I need the 2.8 version, or will the present 2.7 be maintained with updates for the various apps ? What about SonicTransporter ? How or when will SonicTransporter be upgraded ?
  4. The “error” was I selected my SU-1 and not USB as output from the opticalrendu. Working now.
  5. What’s the difference between OpticalRendu and OpticalRendu for Roon ? I use it as Roon endpoint normally, but can also use it with HQPlayer. Which product do I choose ? Can I add a second card for MicroRendu and save shipping cost ?
  6. I tried. Didn’t work with Tidal. Not IPhone XS Max, nor IPad Pro. Tidal sees the OpticalRendu, but no sound.
  7. .......but it will be downloaded as an upgrade as usual ?
  8. @vortecjr I suppose the best Rendu as endpoint, but will the SQ vary depending on what Rendu you have available as transport ? I didn’t understand how your plan was to control the CD. What SW is required on iPad ? Any news regarding using the SonicTransporter as where to connect the CD ? Another crazy taught: If you had HMDI in and out on next generation rendu’s one could connect an AppleTV, (or anything else), and just cast from your cell 😀
  9. @vortecjr Is AirPlay a feature that is technically possible to implement in the Rendu’s by SW, or would such a feature need new hardware ?
  10. @The Computer Audiophile So can anyone who like now use your site as pillory. May I suggest if not delete, maybe close this tread.
  11. Hi Alex and happy new year. How far are we away from next Uptone product launch ? You and John seems very busy, so maybe not before next year, and probably you won’t tell us before almost ready for sale anyway 😀 One important effect of the ER, is that downstream clocks benefit form it. Can any off the technology used (invented) in the ER being used anywhere else in the digital chain like USB/SPDIF converters, endpoints, or even DAC’s ? (Remove clock jitter etc.) When could we expect to see Johns white paper ?
  12. @vortecjr With reference to this review, is it possible technically to implement the Home Audio Fidelity - Room Shaper SW into the Sonicorbiter for SonicTransporter HW ? I personally wouldn’t mind even pay a reasonable price to have this implemented and avoid another PC in the digital chain.
  13. That’s not my understanding reading all John and Alex’s explainations in this thread. But I have purchased both, so I can report back in January 😀
  14. I haven’t read that tread for a while. It’s toooooo looooong 😀 However I disagree with you on the principle of two good switches in series. (Forget external clocks). A good switch (10 GHz preferably) upfront the EtherRegen may very well benefit the digital chain. Even your opticalModule upfront probably will. (And of cause dual ER, but yes, probably total overkill) My assumption is based on John’s writing where he, somewhere in this tread I think, explain how “bad” clock signatures from cheap network gear influence the whole chain downstream. What I may be wrong about is if the ER is total immune against how it’s being fed.
  15. I don’t think that has any relevance, and especially not to a 100Mhz interface 😀 The ethernet cables has been discussed a lot in this an other threads. Some members here has quite good skills about this as well, so try and search the forum. It’s not a good idea to start another cable discussion in this tread. Almost any ethernet cable will do. But avoid those (I forgot category) with shielding that make ground connections between devices. Belden website is very informative also, and a good source to learn about ethernet cables.
  16. Blue Jeans is just fine. You may use minimum length of one meter. But this is not a requirement. Don’t use a cable with metal plugs if the plugs are connected. The Audioquest Vodka will do, but is totally overpriced. If you must use something extremely good, this one has implemented John’s theory how to build a Faraday Cage into a cable. Nicknamed JSSG (John Swenson Shielding Guidelines). And later extended into JSSG360 by another member here at the forum. This technology has been very successful on DC cables.
  17. Alex or John Any chance of making an optical B side version for the opticalRendu owners ? Is it tecnical possible, or is not worth the effort ? Did any of the beta testers tried the ER with an opticalRendu? (and compared it with the opticalModule) When will your next product be announced ? 😀
  18. Finally 🎊 https://uptoneaudio.com/products/etherregen Orders is starting.
  19. You really need to be patient, and purchase the EtherRegen 😀 (Or even two)
  20. Whatever you do with cables: Make sure there is no earth connection. That doesn’t rule out plugs with metal, but in general most of them. One example is the Audioquest Vodka that has metal plugs. It will work. Probably heavenly overpriced as most audiophile cables 😀 Blue Jeans is a very good choice. My link previous post another good option. And please rember, that even it there was a general recommendation for using a one meter cable before, that is NOT the case with EtherRegen. So length shouldn’t matter. Serach Johns post in this tread. Sould be something about it there in details. So hopefully we can leave the cable discussion dead. It’s a bit OT 😀 However it is relevant whenever there will be a tread about how the EtherRegen sound quality. (Ops. A switch with SQ 😀. Yes, that’s that’s what we all expect. And it’s already proven by OpticalModule, and some other overpriced options).
  21. This is for Alex at UpTone Audio to answer. John is the developed or designer of several nice products. I’ve noticed this is your first post. And I can’t answer for his (Alex) @Superdad, bundles options, but don’t expect it to happen with is low margins explained many times. But you can save some shipping cost probably purchasing both at the same time. If you’re after a LPS-1.2, look at the “Novel thread’ as it so happens austinpop is selling his, and just PM him. Welcome to the forum 😀
  22. Powering the EtherRegen with the LPS-1 with the original Meanwell supplied that has the ground shunt implemented. (Modified Meanwell) Shall that ground pin in EtherRegen be used or not ? Will your answer be same for LPS-1.2 ? (Yes I know this has been answered, but sometimes an answer that requires a YES / NO, just gets to confusing 😀)
