Let me guess... your question is: does it cure cancer? :P

Nah, I'm simple, when can I pre-order it should be all of our questions.  It's audio, price doesn't matter.  :P:D

If you follow Jesus instructions in first post, you will get a reply which tells you the answers. 

 

But it as usual, if you post it publicly, the product will not be available 😂

 

(But at least you will have the answer)

I certainly read Jesus' initial post. Other than the visual differences in design and ports, and some vague technical description, there was nothing on my two questions.

I don't know how to read...I just like pictures.

Good luck with the new Rendu Jesus..it already looks great...

😊

Don't envy the insane number of Email the next few weeks though. ..

Alex C had to pretend he was in Hawaii for a rest.....😛

So case changes, but also this: "The ultraRendu utilizes a new proprietary printed circuit board with only the essential components and some updates to match its ultra designation." 

 

Anymore details about this??

Seeing the ultraRendu next to the UltraCAP leaves me wanting to combine them in a nicer way. As such, I have an idea for a custom faceplate that allows you to mount both and have them look as one in your audio rack. Please provide feedback here so I can gauge interest in it.

Would rather have 1 big enclosure and connect the boards directly inside. Optional, of course.

 Picture rear side please ! 

 

 

I'll post some more pics soon. Right now I'm updated the graphics to better match the color of the text on the UltraCap.

It has USB attached hard drive support like the SMS-200?  Or am I misunderstanding?

This option requires a USB drive with your content in combination with the built in Drive Mounter application.

 

How I understand it, the answer is yes 👍

 

Of cause with optional seperate LPS1-1 power 😀

Could you please declare price level that we can gauge interest in it.

 

Since MicroRendu still will be offered, and this is meant to be an upgrade, I'm afraid it will be quite expensive, but hopefully cheaper than the Korean option. 

 

However what I'm hoping for is a price reduction on the MicroRendu, maybe just below sms-200 price, and the new ultra well below $700, or in any case not more than the new sms-200 ultra, which price is still unknown I think.

 

Also I think they can take a chance of order bigger quantities than before, which also hopefully will reflect a lower price.

 

Then next year there will be an ISO regen Ultra with a very expensive clock 😀

Very nice.

 

What is different? Better clocks? Built-in ISO-Regen?

 

I'm going to hold off on commenting about the design until we get closer to selling the units.

I'm going to hold off on discussing this as well. However, I will say that the price will be fair.

so... no joy for those who prefer an USB hard apter? :(

I wouldn't say that you can't use the hard adapter. Understand though that the unit is a bigger and heaver and it may not be appropriate to hang off the back of a DAC. I'm sure there will be circumstances where you can use it, but I'll leave that up to you. We will not supply the el cheapo adapter, but will continue to offer the Cardas adapter.

I'm not thinking about hanging the ultraRendu behind my DAC but about connecting it via an UpTone's USPCB to an Audiophilleo, both on a solid surface ;)

 

wether or not I will be able to do it... depends on clearance between the ethernet, USB and power plugs and ethernet plugs, usually... don't help here :(

Sound like a plan.

How do you then connect the Audiophilleo to the dac? In my system I would need a cable to run from Audiophilleo to the dac. I still don't know what is the most expensive cable - a usb or a digital cable.

What about going taller instead of wider?  This would be easier to place on the same shelf as many DACs.

We can look in to it.

a) The case series is not available taller or with two sets of PCB slide-in grooves;

b) Due to both heat (and potential EMI radiation, you would not want the boards to be one above the other.

 

Jesus' concept is that the faceplate would join two separate extruded enclosures (both same as LPS-1's current case); There is no super-wide extruded case that matches the faceplate he pictured (hence the two screw holes in the middle as you see).

I have told him I am okay with it if he feels there is demand or an advantage (maybe we can work a deal of some sort), but I do think we would either need to have a similar custom back plate made or that a small brace/bridge piece be made to join the two cases at the back.  Otherwise I worry that wagging/bending could occur if joined only at the face.

P.S.  I am sure glad to see this finally brought in the open.  I got tired of nosey e-mails attempting to pry info out of me about Sonore's microRendu follow-on plans. xD

It's not going to wagg or bend unless you get all bionic man on it. You might get even more emails now:)

Looks like a fun extension of the microRendu. Having just made DIY power cables for the LPS-1 and microRendu, obtained a Curious Cable short USB cable, and updated to 2.5? I will probably sit this one out for now, and see how the reviews look after the initial burst.

 

i do like the concept behind having the microRendu close to the DAC.

 

The next concept up from that unified baseplate could be a 17 inch unit that would support the DAC over the ultraRendu + LPS-1 units. Just an upside down "u" shape, or a complete rectangle. The point would be to be able to place the ultraRendu's USB port right under the USB port of the DAC. Of course this shelf would not have the units bolted on. This shelf would also work for the microRendu, and the (upcoming) ultraRendu.
