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.

George


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.

Dumb question here but can I stream Tidal over the microRendu if I don't have a NAS?

If so how can it be done?

You can do that as well.

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?

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.

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.

My router is in the living room and I use an upstairs bedroom as a listening/office room. What is the max length an ethernet can be before there are transfer issues? Quality of cable matter?

TIA Chris

Not long enough for your house to be an issue.  Even if your house is 15k sq ft you're fine.

For anyone wanting the ultimate to power their µRendu I can't recommend the Patent Pending Vinnie Rossi Ultracapacitor technology enough.  It really is stellar.

 Hello everyone I've been a member for a while but never posted, I'm interested in this product and  been on the fence about purchasing one. I have the Ayre Codex DAC paired with the Bryston BDP-1 and I'm using Roon, and would like to know if I connect my DAC to the MicoRendu will I have any issues regarding DSD playback. Also would like to know from anyone  Who has tried this with the Bryston would there be a noticeable  difference.

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).

It should work great. The best way to compare things is in your own system.

You can try anything you want...I promise not to judge. However, I would start by using the best power supply on the microRendu.
