  1. Ran the software update an hour go. Checking the update output, I could not see any reference to Roon/RoonReady, only to a GUI update. Unfortunately , I did not save that update report. Now my urendu OS is a 2.7, and roonready is at level 1.1.36. Is this what I should see after the update ? What should we expect out of this update, if it ever occured ? Regards,
  2. @barrows Moving the repeater far away would be difficult, since it is not dedicated to the rendu and is needed to connect by ethernet other audio devices (another renderer and the Moon DAC). Right now it is located about 1m away from those devices, and 2 m would be the max. Do you think that running an ethernet cable to the upstairs router and replacing the repeater with a classic switch would improve the setup, especially regarding RF broadcast ? An optical module would then be connected to the switch on one end and to the opticalredu on the the other. Any switch you could then recommend ?
  3. Thanks for taking time to answer me. Very much appreciated.
  4. @barrows May I ask for your expertise once again ? In my network setup, I have a wi-fi router upstairs inside my computer room (with a cabled NUC storing my music files). This router communicates over 5G with a Netgear repeater downstairs in my listening room. The Netgear features RJ-45 ethernet connectors, to one of which an ultrarendu is connected (PS: LPS-1) . The ultrrendu connects over USB to a Moon 780D DAC. In this setup, I have no problem streaming up to DSD256 native from my NUC upstairs with no dropouts with excellent SQ. I am wondering if replacing in my setup the ultrarendu with an opticalrendu (over fiber) -> opticalmodule (over ethernet) -> netgear would be beneficial, or does the wifi path between the router upstairs and the netgear repeater downstairs isolate my urendu renderer from "most" of the ethernet noise, except from that coming from the netgear itself ? Thanks for your help
  5. @Barrows You warned against powering both an opticalrendu and optical module with the same power supply. Is there a similar concern also with powering both an opticalrendu and its associated USB Dac with the same PS ? Regards,
  6. Jesus, Could you please share some info on the USB cable specs (connector type, length, who provides it). Do we have any choice and if so, could you provide a list ? As for the headphone mini jack converter, specs would also be welcome. This could be a silly questio, but how does the user adjust volume ?
  7. Is the type of the USB input connector featured on the ToneDAC going to create problems for all those who already own Type-A > Type B USB cables ? Will Sonore provide or recommend a suitable adapter, offer or recommend a new type of USB cable, or offer a choice of USB connector when ordering the ToneDAC ? I would not like to see another round of the never-ending USB cable war... Regards
  8. Does that imply the LPS will be dropped from the list of recommended power supplies on the Sonore.us optical web page ?
  9. Regarding the "mandatory use" of the Lumin app to drive the U1, it would be interesting to know if, when the unit is used as a UPnP/DLNA renderer, a non proprietary app like BubbleUPnP can drive it. Could you test that ?
  10. Have you enabled your mrendu in the Roon audio settings (Settings > Audio > Networked ) ? I ask, because my personal experience is that everytime I first got a new rendu renderer (I have more than one) I forgot this installation step and banged my head trying to understand why Roon could not see it . Hope this is as simple for you .
  11. I do not own a ProIDSD, but I was quite excited when I initially read about it. However, I felt really depressed when I heard that gapless playback was not factored in when the product was initially designed and that firmware would need to be changed to support it (if this is possible, as you wrote in a later post). It sounds as if gapless playback support for the ProIDSD is an aftertought. I find it hard to understand how such an essential requirement in a network renderer can have been ignored in a product that took years to develop. I just hope that gapless playback will effectively become a reality in the ProIDSD, and that its implementation will not be of a "proprietary" type requiring the use of a specific controller, but rather be based on the same UPnP protocols as used for ex. by BubbleUPnP on Android. Regards
  12. I would be interested to lean about the way you arrived at those figures, especially on Tidal. On Tidal, are those 150,000 master tracks all MQA type ? How do you search for MQA on Tidal ? Regards
  13. Cebolla, your answer seems to imply that, when streaming to a UPnP renderer from the BubbleUPnP android app, audio files are proxied to the local control point. This is not my experience. I can launch a stream of a whole Qobuz album to my renderer (sonore microrendu) from BubbleUPnP and shut down my tablet. The album tracks will play to the end. I can regain control of the renderer and the playlisr from a BubbleUPnP instance running on a different tablet. This shows that the renderer, being of an OpenHome type, owns the playlist and connects directly to the Qobuz server. No proxying should be involved here, unless, I am totally wrong. Note that I am using a standard Qobuz account, so no streaming in CD or HR quality. Would that make a ifference ?
  14. Jesus, Why don't you inform your user community on the availability of updates when they are added to your software base ?
  15. Hi, My mrendu currently connects to my router at 1GBit speed. I am starting to experience connectivity problems, and would like to see if reducing the speed of the ethernet connection could solve the issue, or at least help me diagnose the problem cause. My question is thus: is it possible to force the mrendu to connect at 100mbs through a setting of some sort ? Unfortunately, my router does not allow setting the connect speed on its ethernet ports. Any help greatly appreciated André
