Title: Sonore microRendu - Ethernet to USB output
Post by: vortecjr on 17 Apr 2016, 06:56 pm
(http://microrendu.sonore.us/microRendu-top.png)

DESCRIPTION
The Sonore microRendu is an audiophile micro computer with Ethernet input and USB Audio output. The microRendu utilizes a propietary printed circuit board with only the essential components. The microRendu is small and light weight. Connect the microRendu directly to your USB device via a USB cable or hard adapter eliminateing the need for a USB cable. Don't let the size fool you though because it's been designed to take into consideration all that is important to USB Audio. The microRendu is easy to configure and can accept audio streams from several digital sources.

What makes the microRendu different from a typical computer music server is that it's a purpose built audiophile device. The problem with computer music servers is that they all rely on mass produced motherboards designed for general purpose computing and are built to the lowest possible price point. The microRendu solves this problem by removing the consumer grade computer peripherals and optimizing power supplies where nessesary. The microRendu has been specifically built for processing USB audio perfectly. You can also combine the microRendu with an audiophile grade linear power supply to achieve the lowest possible noise floor.

Can you explain a little about the basics, im new to streaming.

Do i hook this up to my home network, it gets an ip address from my dhcp server, finds some music files on my network, and outputs the audio on a usb port?  So i can hook up a usb dac to it?

Assuming you have a USB DAC...how do you play to it now? What do you use as a player? JRiver, Roon, LMS, iTunes, or something else?

Im still in the dark ages - i listen to CDs using the cd playwr digital out into the DACs rca or toslink input.  When i do use the usb, im hooking it up to my laptop where i have some music on the hard drive, using foobar.

Title: Re: Sonore microRendu - Ethernet to USB output
Post by: vortecjr on 1 May 2016, 05:13 pm
Foobar2000 could be used with the unit in DLNA output mode. You would have to load the Foobar2000 DLNA output plug-in. This would allow the computer to be elsewhere in your home while the microRendu is dedicated to the audio system.
Title: Re: Sonore microRendu - Ethernet to USB output
Post by: rif on 1 May 2016, 05:24 pm
Ah!  I think i get it.  The computer with the music and foobar can be anywhere, as long as its on the network.  I can then use something like Nomachine to remotely control that computer from my tablet .  And the micoRendu is hooked up to my network through its rj45 port and into my audio system through its usb (and into my usb dac).

Thats a very usefull device!

Installation was a breeze and just took a few minutes.

I am using the microRendu with Roon.

Will post later on the sonics vs. my purpose built computer I had been using.

Does that 'direct' USB adapter come with the micro allowing you to bypass a cable and just plug directly into the rear?  (off color description)

Yes.

Right now I am using that adapter and a power supply from my UpTone Audio Regen. 

Tomorrow I will try an iFi power supply and see how that helps things.

In the coming days I will try a few different usb cables in place of the stock adapter.

My guess is yes.

In my systems, my maxed out SB was outclassed by many other products over the last 4-5 years.

Digital has been evolving so quickly...it's tough to stay near the top for a long period of time.

What USB DAC are you using?

The DAC is an approx. 10 year old Mhdt Constantine with some simple mods. Its not USB.

I think that the DAC is a major weak point in my rig although the system sounds pretty good with its elderly, solid state NOS DAC. I also have a vinyl rig as a reference albeit with an old, moderate quality cartridge. 
I guess its time to concentrate on the input.   I've thought about replacing it for years.:) DAC first.

The microRendu is for USB DACs.

I would guess even some relatively inexpensive DACs would sound better than a 10 year old one.

Why get rid of the DAC when you can use the microRendu and a good USB to SPDIF interface?

Great, I am very excited for this product.  Its nice to see a well thought out renderer that does not cost $3k. 
So even though some/many USB DACs require drivers this will work?  Forgive my ignorance.  Is that the same for the SOSE?

That's not just any ten year old DAC, it's a pretty cool DAC with R2R TDA1545A chips.

I think the point being made is that actually might work better to upgrade the "transport" first, i.e. get a microRendu and an SPDIF converter.  Then one could compare the old DAC to new ones and see if there is an improvement.

But who knows, you could be right too...

Trying to catch up on all the reading on CA about the microRendu but still trying to figure how it connects and works. I currently use an Aries that streams off a Mac mini that is connected by wifi and the Aries goes to a Lampizator L4 via USB. The router is on the other side of the house.

How would I hook the Rendu up if I can at all? Between the Aries and Lampi I got an Intona and a Regen so the thought of removing several items sounds intriguing.

You'd need either a wired ethernet cable from your router directly to the microRendu or a wireless bridge to connect to it via a short ethernet cable (e.g. Apple Airport Express or similar). No need for the Regen as it's sort of built in.

Review notice:

We sent Hans Beekhuyzen a unit last week at his request for a video review. I received a reply this morning with a notice that the review will be live today....enjoy!

*****************************************

Hi Jesus,

I think the microRendu is hot, very hot. So I gave it priority over other videos and planned it for today 16:00 CET or 10:00AM East Coast, 7:00 AM West Coast.

Enjoy but do buckle up;-) (and don’t forget to tell the world, both virtual and real).

Jesus. Just watched it. FANTASTIC!

I will link the video on the Hoffman forum...

FYI...single most satisfying purchase in digital audio in my lifetime.

BTW, works great with a LAN filter.
Review notice:

We sent Hans Beekhuyzen a unit last week at his request for a video review. I received a reply this morning with a notice that the review will be live today....enjoy!

I just placed an order on the web site for a microRendu.  The site says pre-order with delivery in June, but I also see that people have them in hand so units already started shipping.

Did you run out of the first batch and are making more for delivery in June, or is the web site out of date and you're delivering now?

Thanks!

Forgive me for being so computer dense in advance.

I have a CAPS running JRiver with a Chord QuteEX.

I have now tried to introduce the Microrendu.

So far I,

1. powered up the Microrendu;
2. plugged the USB to my Chord;
3. plugged the Ethernet connection to my router;
4. chose DLNA app, restarted; and,
5. DLNA in settings, USB output, restart again for good measure.

So, now I go into my JRiver, hit play.  Nothing.  Is there something I need to change in JRiver or the computer to now tell it to play to a network player?

Thanks.

Also, when I go to Custom DAC nothing shows up in the "Audio device list" and it says, "Error in alsa-capabilities (vo.9.1): aplay did not find any soundcard."
Title: Re: Sonore microRendu - Ethernet to USB output
Post by: vortecjr on 22 May 2016, 11:36 am
1. Turn off the DAC and the microRendu
2. Turn on the DAC and then microRendu
3. Go to the GUI and confirm the DAC is found in DAC Diagnostics
4. Put the unit in MPD/DLNA output mode
5. Start JRiver and conform thesis settings

6. Double click on the microRendu from JRiver from the list under Playing Now
7. Select a title to play

Anand, does this mean you heard the microRendu at some point?  If so,what did you feel were the improvements as compared to your Aries?  What will you be running on the sonic transporter, HQP, Roon??

I am running minimserver on my Nas with an Aries feeding my Vega, I won't be able to hear the microRendu  before ordering, so I am trying to get a feel from those who have heard it what improvements over the Aries they are hearing.  I realize this can be difficult to quantify.

Thanks Jason, I'm probably just going to order one and give it a try, just trying to convince myself there is a reason to believe it will be an improvment.

Ed,

To be honest, I trust jtwrace, TomS, zybar, etc... Jtwrace and I listen to very similar recordings and have similar setups. We do have differences in our approach, but they are similar nonetheless.

One of my bigger problems is WIFI interference. Since my equipment room is a separate room from my audio room and the router I have is completely outside of both these rooms, I experienced significant dropout with the Aries. I could've solved this problem with multiple Eeros to be honest, and I may need to do that in the future anyway for other non-audio reasons.  The Aries wasn't the problem and it is an excellent unit from a sonic standpoint. However, I only used the USB output. I was never an AES or optical kind of guy. So when the microRendu came out, it gave me reason to pause. An additional problem was that you just couldn't 'install' Roon into an Aries. You needed a separate computer or very powerful NAS. Our family computer is a Mac that is hogged by everybody, so that was a no go. My NAS is a simple QNAP model, and cannot handle the processing power of Roon. I was also getting tired of the numerous updates from Lightning DS...ugh! Decisions, decisions!

I expect that the sonic qualities will be similar and if there is an improvement, then great  :thumb: The microRendu simplifies my setup somewhat  :oops: . The sonicTransporter is also upgradeable, and if I don't like Roon, no big deal, I could use some other playback software (JRiver, HQplayer, etc...).

The ideal situation would be a microRendu built into a Vega built into a LIO, etc...and you can throw democracy out the window at the same time! Too many eggs in one basket so to speak. At some point, we need balance and the freedom of choice.

I'll tell you what the real problem is. You need to be careful about how much you invest in digital audio as the improvements are happening quickly and dramatically on a yearly basis. You don't want to lose your investment too soon and/or live in obsolescence. And if you DIY in digital audio, you will lose badly in the resale market. For me personally, DIY is meant for speakers, room treatments/design, amps and preamps/phonostages. But not for digital anymore.

Sorry about the rambling but those are my thoughts my friend  8)

Best,
Anand.

You don't have to use Roon, although it pairs up great.  I can also use my microRendu with JRiver/Jremote via DLNA.

Thanks George, you answered one question for me, apparently there isn't any special setup for the microRendu to enable DSD play.  I have tried it with Direct DSD checked and unchecked, no joy either way.  I will try another player and see if I have any luck.

So far I am enjoying it.  I'm using the iFi PS now and I'm going to try a battery this weekend.  There are a couple of Ultracapacitor PSs in the works that I am keep an eye out for. 

I ordered a Sonic Transporter this morning, I want to see what all of the fuss is about regarding Roon, plus I understand the Tidal integration is excellent.  I don't have Tidal set up with Kinsky, I'm not certain it is possible, so I am currently missing the Tidal app that I feel the Aries does well.

How was the leap from iFi to the LIO PS?

Chris Connaker founder of Computer Audiophile said this in part 2 of his review of the microRrendu, "The ultra low noise bespoke design of this unit, a micro computer designed for audio only, has lead to some amazing listening experiences for me over the last several weeks. From the beautiful distortion of Hendrix to the simplistic vocals and whisper soft trumpet of Chet Baker, the microRendu enabled all the music to shine in its best light. I don't believe I've had a sonically better source connected to my system at any time."

Hey guys, I have a 2.1 channel system and I use if for both music and playback via JRiver.  Right now I'm using an inexpensive Asus Vivo PC with Windows 10 and JRiver for both music and videos via USB to my McIntosh D100 DAC.  I also use Netfilx, HBOGo, etc. for movie streaming via the Edge browser and the same setup.

(Sorry if this is a dumb question, but I did a search and didn't find an answer) ... but I'm wondering if using DLNA through JRiver it can playback movies, youtube videos, etc.?

(The audio portion anyways, not the video as that would be through my Asus VivoPC and JRiver, or a browser.)

Post by: vortecjr on 23 Jun 2016, 12:54 am
I have just bought a microRendu with the intention of using a USB-to-SPDIF converter to connect it to my Bel Canto 3.5 DAC.

As I already own an M2Tech HifaceI I intended to use this, but I have been told I need a HiFaceII.

Before I spend some money is this correct?
Any advice on other interfaces to consider?

Thanks,

M
The second version appears to be better, but both will work.

Hey guys, I have a 2.1 channel system and I use if for both music and playback via JRiver.  Right now I'm using an inexpensive Asus Vivo PC with Windows 10 and JRiver for both music and videos via USB to my McIntosh D100 DAC.  I also use Netfilx, HBOGo, etc. for movie streaming via the Edge browser and the same setup.

(Sorry if this is a dumb question, but I did a search and didn't find an answer) ... but I'm wondering if using DLNA through JRiver it can playback movies, youtube videos, etc.?

(The audio portion anyways, not the video as that would be through my Asus VivoPC and JRiver, or a browser.)

Thanks!

The DLNA output may not support all the features of local playback. You might want to ask this question on the JRiver forum to be sure.

Thx Jesus,

I then realised that I have forgotten my Oppo 105D has a USB input, so I will have an interesting shootout. I will consider replacing the HiFace with the M2Tech EVO USB/SPDIF II in due course.

...should be an interesting few weeks!

Jesus, it seems you've nailed it with the microRendu using the KISS principle. Looks like an exciting new dimension is opening up within computer audio with products like this one, Roon and especially CD quality streaming. I suspect I'll be on that train in the coming months. Well done!

Great review.  Re: his setup.  Am I understanding correctly that he has the NAS, router, microrendu, and server attached to the same network switch?  So he's not taking advantage of any wireless output?

Having been through a LOT of pain, that turned out to be COMPLETELY unrelated the the microRendu (mR), I have spent a number of days listening to my music using LMS into my Oppo 105D.

i had not realised how good the Oppo is, dynamic and detailed, the mR adds layers of texture, turning the result into real music.

Looking forward to trying a better PSU, SBOOSTER on order. I have also bought a Gustard U12 to try the mR with my Bel Canto 3.5vb DAC.

Thank you Jesus, superb piece of kit. I am amazed at the level of music that can be bought using the mR and an Oppo 105D! Bravo.

HI,


New to this forum, so please excuse me if I couldn't find what im about to ask...


Since I would like to compare the micro Rendu with my Bryston BDP1, I would mainly focus on MPD playback.
Below, stated is that MPD playback is intended for use with a usb drive. Does it need to be connected directly? Or can it also be a network drive (like on the NAS).
Does the MicroRendu support usb hubs, with several drives attached to it? (I've got my library on 4 drives now)


Is there a library size limit to the MicroRendu's specifications? My BDP1 struggles above 50-60K tracks, and even the BDP2 seems to be limited, albeit on a larger size of course.


Thanks!
Marius

Marius,

I have over 100k tracks and there are no issues.

i have used my microRendu with both Roon and JRiver.  In both cases I used a 32TB Synology NAS that has all of my music and movies.

I haven't tried MPAD.

HI George,
Sounds good!
Do you play MPD, or DLNA? I ask because on the BDP, everyone seems to agree MDP sounds best, compared to the other services. Only Roon stirs the discussion right now. For me, I find MPD sounding way more natural, and is the preferred way of playback for now.


Cheers,
Marius

FYI When you use the DLNA output mode on the microRendu or Sonicorbiter SE you are using MPD as the player in the back ground.

Before I order please confirm that my understanding is correct. I'm currently using a CAPS server with JRiver controlled by my iPad with JRemote via USB to my DAC.  The easiest way for me to start using the microRendu would be to keep the CAPS/JRiver/JRemote connected via Ethernet but disconnect it from the DAC, and then use the mR to drive the DAC.  Is this correct?   
Title: Re: Sonore microRendu - Ethernet to USB output
Post by: glynnw on 19 Oct 2016, 04:46 pm
I believe you need a NAS and then connect the microRendu by ethernet to the Nas and your DAC by USB to the microRendu. This is what I did and it allowed me to use JRiver and remotes exactly as before.  The only difference when you turn it on is you need to select the microRendu when it appears in the Playing Now section.  If I am wrong, others please correct me.
Title: Re: Sonore microRendu - Ethernet to USB output
Post by: Big Red Machine on 19 Oct 2016, 04:52 pm
You can leave your set-up intact except for the connection to the DAC I believe. I don't think you need a NAS as the uRendu will see your computer as the host and if they are both on the network you should be good to go.

I refuse to buy a nas and invest in one of those when I already have a server for music. So I ran a parallel Ethernet cable to my rack and I'll put the uRendu on that into the dac with the back end of the wire connected to my DSL modem just as my server is so they will see each other.

My uRendu is due this week and I will let you know how it goes.

Just to follow up and maybe help someone else, I hooked up my mR just as stated above and it works perfectly.  It did take a while to get the settings correct in JRiver and JRemote, but I'm not very computer-savvy so if I can do it anybody can. Immediately noticeable improvement in clarity which improves texture, imaging and soundstaging - at least in my system.  Highly recommended.

Loving my microRendu.  Using it between NAS and DAC.  Has anyone experienced improvements in sound by using LPS on router or NAS?  Any experiments using LPS on PC while using microRendu?  While I am a believer in going to extremes on the analog signal, so far the few things I have tried with the digital signal have left me unimpressed.  Before I spend money on upgrades that are pointless (or at least bring very little return for the investment) I'd like to hear from anyone who has tricked out that part of the signal chain from the PC through the router and NAS to the microRendu (including ethernet cables).

IME, if you are using the mR, the PS for the server makes little or no difference. That's part of the point, isn't it?

I won't say it makes no difference, but it certainly isn't something easy to hear, when I've tried it. I'd maybe get a decent LPS for the server, I wouldn't spend huge bucks on it. My system has good ethernet cables and a LAN filter before the mR, if that makes any difference to you.
