    Article: Lumin U1 Streaming Transport Review

    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 ?

    micro/ultraRendu - support thread

    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 .
  3. 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.

    Official Qobuz Issues Thread

    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

    Official Qobuz Issues Thread

    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 ?

    Jesus, Why don't you inform your user community on the availability of updates when they are added to your software base ?

    micro/ultraRendu - support thread

    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

    As a real good customer (2 microrendus and one ultrarendu), my understanding is that, if the unit is still under warranty, everything has been tried to solve an update issue, and the conclusion is to have the SD card replaced, then Sonore will ship a new SD card updated to 2.6, free of charge. Am I naive ?

    micro/ultraRendu - support thread

    Jesus, Your answer to msherman really scares me, and I fully understand his worries. As an owner of one ultrarendu and two microrendus, may I simply ask this simple question: Is it safe to upgrade now to version 2.6 from the sonicorbiter web interface, or is it better to wait ? The previous upgrade to 2.5 coud not be done through the web interface and required the purchase of an updated SD card from Sonore. Should it not be the same for 2.6, and would it not be safer for Sonore to offer this upgrade path ?

    Sonore ultraRendu

    Curious to read that. On the Uptone site one can read :

    micro/ultraRendu - support thread

    For your infomation, I have an UltraRendu and an original microrendu, both running 2.5 OS. They are connected to 2 separate Simaudio MoonDACs. When both are set to RoonReady mode, my Roon server can see both at the same time. I have no idea what is causing the problem on your side, but i could provide more info on my setup if this could help diagnose the issue. Regards

    Sonicorbiter - "the operating system"

    Sorry for having misread. Easy to confuse SonicOrbiter OS vs SonicOrbiter SE ...

    Sonicorbiter - "the operating system"

    You cannot upgrade from 2.3 to 2.5 using the web interface. You need to buy and install a new SD card holding the 2.5 version. See Sonicorbiter 2.5 - software update .
