For sale - Original Sonore Signature Series Rendu network audio renderer in excellent (9/10) condition. Original owner. If you have a DAC that takes I2S or SPDIF input, then this SSR will provide one of the best input signals among streamers today. Highly recommended by Computer Audiophile, particularly if you own a PS Audio DirectStream DAC. According to computer audio expert Ted Brady on the DS+SSR combo: "It was an audiophiles best dream, and an audio lovers best attempt of heaven on earth, a contender for one of two or three best audio listening sessions of my life." $1500, includes a 4-foot Belden Bonded-Pair HDMI Cable from Blue Jeans Cable. More information from Sonore: Signature Series Rendu Ethernet to SPDIF/i2s renderer We looked at the standard Rendu, already providing fantastic performance in many systems, and thought hard about how it might be improved, how we might lower jitter, and improve on its digital precision. We decided the correct way to go would be to upgrade all facets of the design making incremental improvements which add up to considerable performance gains. The power supply is upgraded both in parts quality and layout. The big addition is the new isolated, clock/re-clock, output board. By specification, the Ethernet input is already isolated from the noise on the network, but there is still some noise produced on the processing board. To generate an absolutely pure clock signal, we added a separate, isolated, output board with a separately regulated power supply. This output board holds the dual Crystek CCHD oscillators, the re-clocking circuitry, and the output drive circuitry for SPDIF and I2S. Because the Signature Series Rendu generates clean clocks and then reclocks on the output board right before the SPDIF and I2S output jitter is lowered even further. Additionally, a very special SPDIF driver circuitry results in a perfectly clean SPDIF waveform which allows one to get the best out of any SPDIF input DAC. While the original Rendu has set the Ethernet to SPDIF and I2S standard up to now, the new Signature Series Rendu takes performance to the next level, this is the best SPDIF and I2S we can make, and we suspect that you will think so as well.
