jaaptina posted a topic in Music ServersThese are times full of choices I've got a microRendu with LPS-1 and I'm very happy with the upgrade in soundquality it gave me. Now there are several options to upgrade without spending too much money at once: 1) upgrade the microRendu to ultraRendu. 2) add the isoRegen and keep the microRendu 3) update the microRendu hardware to V1.4 (with better clock) Investment in the three option won't differ much. Because there is so much praise for the isoRegen I leaning to this option. However in that case I have to power isoRegen or microRendu with the iFi iPower. The update to V1.4 is not my favorite option because shipment costs to Europe. It's a bit early to ask about experiences with ultraRendu but it won't be long now. Any thoughts?
AlterEgo posted a topic in Music ServersI now received my new gear (Vitus Audio SCD-025) and am thinking about to improve sound quality of my chain. First of all a description of the starting point: I am using Roon 1.3. Roon Core is running on a Mac mini Server late 2012 i7 16 GB located in my workroom. For Roon remote I am using an iPad. Via wired network actual I am using a Raspberry PI Digi+ Pro as Roon endpoint located in my living room which is connected with my Vitus Audio SCD-025 DAC via coax. Mac mini —> Cisco Switch SG 100-16 (workroom) —> Raspberry Pi (living room / out coax) —> Vitus Audio SCD-025 (CD/DAC) The audio specifications of the VA SCD-025 are listed below: Digital Audio Output: 192 KHz/24 bit Digital Audio Input: USB Class A/B supports up to DSD128, 32bit 384KHz PCM AES/EBU 1xXLR Following constellations I am thinking about: Mac mini —> Cisco (work room) —> Aqvox AQ-Switch (living room) —> SOtM sMS-200 —> Intona High Speed USB Isolator —> VA SCD-025 Mac mini —> Cisco (work room) —> Aqvox AQ-Switch (living room) —> SOtM sMS-200 ultra —> Intona High Speed USB Isolator —> VA SCD-025 Mac mini —> Cisco (work room) —> Aqvox AQ-Switch (living room) —> Lumin U1 (via USB and/or AES/EBU) —> VA SCD-025 The sMS-200 will be powered by a UpTone UltraCap LPS-1. I am quite uncertain about an additional extension of alternative 1. with tX-USBultra or perhaps to use dX-USB HD and the AES/EBU input of the SCD-025. I also will try the additional usage of HQ-Player in the next weeks. Any thoughts and/or recommendations would be very welcome. Also recommendations besides the above mentioned constellations 1. - 3. SCD025
