  1. That's cool of you to be transparent and share knowledge on this, even though you're currently selling your MScaler.
  2. Thanks for the reply! What does "SCR-DX" refer to?
  3. Trying to decide on my direction for upsampling streamed music. Poll responses appreciated.
  4. For those who’ve tried both with a Chord TT2 or DAVE, did you prefer M Scaler or HQPlayer for upsampling music streamed from Tidal/Qobuz? Please respond to the poll and feel free to add further color to comments below. Thank you! (Note: this question is specific to streaming. For owned music I’ve trialed PGGB and its fantastic!)

    Drawing on the many years of amplifier design experience at Arcam, the A29 uses the best quality components and engineering practice to produce a product that will give many years of musical pleasure and reliable service. With a class G amplifier, toroidal based power supply, acoustically damped chassis, complementary transistor output stages and exceptionally low levels of distortion and noise the A29 is capable of reproducing music with all its original authority and detail. Rest assured you will be hearing the music just as the artist intended. The A29 have been designed to leapfrog the competition with a massive 80 watts per channel into 8 ohms and 175 watts into 4 ohms, allowing for huge extra power reserves from our latest generation class G topology that is both clever and efficient. During normal operation, distortion is measured in less than one part per million so that this massive power is deliver with total control and finesse. There have been great strides made in improving audio sources and loudspeakers in recent years and the time is right to match them in the field of amplifier design. This ground breaking amplifier is a must audition amplifiers for music lovers who understand that power is nothing without control.

Description: The 2Qute is a super-DAC for the modern age and features class-leading specification, outstanding technical measurements and proven sonic performance. The 2Qute advances our much-loved Qute EX DAC with Hugo specification. Essentially a Hugo in a Chordette chassis, it brings the latest FPGA DAC technology into an affordable home-system-orientated unit. 2Qute contains the same high-performance Spartan 6 FPGA that has enabled Hugo to redefine the DAC genre since its launch. The 2Qute also boasts astonishingly low distortion levels of 0.0003%. The 2Qute offers support for up to 32-bit/384kHz audio via coax and USB, and 24-bit/192kHz over optical. DSD64 is supported on all inputs and DSD128 is supported via coax or USB (all via DoP). The unit also gains a handy switch to easily move between coax, optical and USB digital inputs. The device features a Class 2 USB input which, because of the 2Qute’s home-system orientation compared to Hugo’s more mobile aspirations, has been galvanically isolated for greater sonic performance. This has been achieved using a novel technique which allows for very high data rates of up to 384kHz; the input is driverless on Apple and Android devices, with (ASIO included) drivers for Windows devices.

  11. This SNC approach with a single CPU is a very intriguing alternative to the dual-CPU approach. Is anyone planning to test this?
  12. I’ve been able to trial a few PGGB converted files through a Hugo TT-2 and can confirm the increased realistic body of voices, instruments and ambient noted by previous posters. One step closer to having the live performance in my living room. Great stuff! I mostly stream vs. purchase music, so am very interested in how the streaming PGGB options evolve. Would be very interesting to compare a PGGB streaming option vs. adding an M Scaler vs. HQP upsampling.
  13. I had a similar issue and it turned out to be a bad Ethernet cable. Swapped out cable and no more connectivity issues.

    For sale is an UltraRendu in excellent condition. Sound is excellent, but I'm selling because I'm moving to streaming music directly from my server. Doesn't include a power supply. I recommend pairing it with a good LPS (e.g. uptone LPS-1.2 or JS-2, Paul Hynes SR4-T or Farad Super3), however I can throw in an Uptone Audio 7.5V SMPS power adapter if desired. ultraRendu The Sonore ultraRendu project is an extension of the microRendu project that came before it. The design is inspired by audiophile gear and meant to bring grace and simplicity to a microcomputer. The original microRendu was very small and intended to be hidden out of sight behind your other gear. The ultraRendu can be powered by your favorite power supply. The ultraRendu remains as an Ethernet input and USB-Audio output, but all the connectors are located on the rear of the unit for easy cable routing. The ultraRendu utilizes a new proprietary printed circuit board with only the essential components and many updates to match its ultra designation. The best way to connect the ultraRendu to a USB device is via your favorite USB cable. The ultraRendu is easy to configure, accepts streams from various sources, and includes our latest version of our operating system Sonicorbiter. SELECTABLE OUTPUT MODES Mode #1 - SqueezeLite Output - This output works with any Logitech Media Server and compatible controllers.
