  1. This is not correct. In fact, the Rendu is capable of some resampling, but in this case the unit is just a receiver.
  2. As discussed above the Rendu is not resampling in this caes and more than capable of playing DSD256.
  3. There is nothing in the Rendu that you can play with. Some of the things to look into is the computer, any switches especially if they are managed.

    Unfortunately, no.
  5. Sonicorbiter - "the operating system"

    I’m not involved in that project and don’t know about the details. However, if you are having issues with Tidal that suggests to me a network or internet issue. Try local playback direct from the unit via USB. Also, reinstalling the software will not generally help with issues.

    Email me so we can sort it out.

    The updates don't affect this area of the operating system. Post the output of DAC diagnostics. Try a different USB DAC or converter.

    Go into Settings / RoonReady and press Save. Also: The Rendu needs to sees your DAC before it will show up in Roon. To verify if the Rendu sees yours DAC go to Apps / DAC Diagnostics. If the DAC is not listed you may have to remove and reconnect the USB cable, then refresh the page. If your DAC is still not listed try power cycling the DAC followed by power cycling the Rendu cable and then go to Apps / DAC Diagnostics.

    One important thing he left out is that the ultraRendu is only 875 USD vs 1,200 USD and 1,400 USD. That means you have money left over to buy a nice linear power supply:)

    Thanks for posting the resolution. I'll keep these kinds of issues in mind for others. You did the right thing and separating the power supplies as it seems you where near the limit of the power supply. There are some devices out there that have the center pin as negative DC and not positive DC. The iFi iPower supply we sell has an adapter to convert to center pin as negative DC and you might find similar ones on eBay or Amazon. FYI when you feed the unit and DAC from the same power supply you break any inherent galvanic isolation between them. It's not always a bad thing and it's convenient (I do it here sometimes), but keep that in mind. Enjoy!

    This looks good. What happens if you click on Manage?
  12. micro/ultraRendu - support thread

    Fist of all you only need to connect the DAC for Roon and Logitech Media Server to see the unit. It's always best to connect the DAC before boot, but that is because some DAC need it for initialization. The unit should always show up on www.sonicorbiter.com with or without the DAC connected. For this to work the network needs to have internet access.

    Will it play above 96 kHz if you remove all DSP functions?
  14. micro/ultraRendu - support thread

    You don't have some wired DSP settings in Roon right? The DSP settings on Roon are device/zone specific.
  15. micro/ultraRendu - support thread

    Can you confirm that you get playback with and with out that configuration just not above 96kHz?
