I recently bought microRendu with iFi adapter and after initial burn-in time, it still sounds very bright and somehow digital, specialy in upper mids and high freq. specrum. Before microRendu I was using Naim ND5xs as a player only connected to NuPrime Dac10h and this was not an issue. Now I have Synology 216j - microRendu - Nuprime dac10h - st10 - Pmc 23. MicroRendu is connected to dac over usb hard adapter. Player I am using is Logitec Media Player on Synology and Sonore via iPeng app. Any idea how to correct this? Tnx
To be perfectly honest, if the microRendu sounds bright, it is your system. I have heard it in numerous systems and it is as natural, neutral, and musical as I have heard any digital component.
Edit: Not sure if someone else mentioned it but it could def. be a dirty LAN. Consider a LAN isolation device. They really work.
