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.

I have seem several topics and a video regarding the BOTW P&P ECO Power Supply, and on there web site they have it as being compatible with the microRendu, but I notice that Sonore web site list it as one of there recommended power supplies to use. Can anyone please enlighten me as to the quality of this PS.

Does anyone know if you switch sources on a DAC does the uR need to be rebooted to be connected?  I have found this to be the case with the SOse.

If you mean if you pull the USB and switch dacs, yes, that's normal.

No, I mean pushing the source button on the DAC from USB to anpother and back.

When you push that button what does it disconnect?  USB hand shake?

seems to.  I need to unplug the SOse and plug it back in to get Roon back.

Makes sense then.  Whether it's electrically or physically it's doing the same thing thus requiring a reboot of the µRendu which is normal.

I'm finally getting around to run an Ethernet cable to my listening room. There are different types and I was thinking of going shielded.

What is the best cable to use? Cat5e? Cat6a?, Cat7?

TIA

My microRendu is up and running perfectly into my Wtred4Sound Dac2 DSDse. Usb is Asynchronous which requires 5v . Unit is a bit warm to the touch but not to bad... :duh:  This thing sounds awesome indeed!! 

Great Product :thumb:
