Hi, I'll bet I'm not the only one on the site with both a mRendu and a REGEN. Of course I've thought about selling the REGEN but tinkerer that I am I just had to try cascading the mRendu into the REGEN. Here's the setup: Blue jeans Ethernet > urendu powered by HDPlex > short supple USB from Uptone > REGEN > Clarus Crimson USB into Lampi DAC. I thought using this chain over the top. But had to go out of town. When I returned my REGEN had failed. (Uptone quickly replaced it.) And my HDPlex 100 watt linear power supply died as well (new one on its way) so haven't got a chance to listen again. To me the system just sounded more powerful and robust. REGEN and lpsu on the way back. But meanwhile have a chance to purchase Curious Cable loom. Here's a couple of questions I'm pondering. I'd sure like some input. 1. Has anyone else tried this? The results? 2. Curious cables question. It seems that some people have not found using a Curious Cable REGEN link (or any other expensive USB cable as well, not trying to pick on the obvious great cables built by the Curious guys) to make much difference between the mRendu and their DAC. I'd be glad to see feedback. MRendus should be broken in by now so could I get some feedback on this? (Yes, I've read most posts already but they seem older with nothing up to date.) 3. I'm considering purchasing the Curious Cable Loom to connect the two? I'd sure be glad to hear feedback before I buy. I'm always ready to talk about audio. If you'd like to discuss experiences PM me and I'll send my phone number.
Had been musing about whether to move from PC based stuff for a while... Just before Xmas, decided to improve my bog-standard PC setup by investing in a full HDPlex H5 based system with new Gigabyte board, Paul Pang bits & Jcat USB card, then loaded Windows 2012 Essentials, HQPlayer, Audiophile Optimizer, Roon Server etc - Turned out to be quite a big step up in regards to SQ etc, but..... I must be getting old... what I used to enjoy, the whole tweaking thing, building stuff etc, did not have the same 'fun factor' as I thought it would! Fickle as I am (or must be), I decided last week to go buy an Aurender N100H, and although Roon and even JRiver are a better front end, I am very pleased with it. Indeed, I presume due to its relative simplicity, I found myself using the Aurender more... As far as SQ is concerned, very little if anything in it... but I think the Music Server is a fraction better... Anyhow, so there is a fully built Music Server up for grabs if anyone here wants it + LPS etc ... on fleabay - just search for it.... regards Keith
