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.
Gentlemen, currently I have the following network setup: Airport Extreme N standard > USB attached hdd over wifi to my MBP retina with AC wifi built in which currently doesn't make any difference. Current setup plays high res just fine via Roon but DSD drops completely after few seconds of playback which I can understand since the measured read/write speed now equals around 7MBps. So what I'm trying to find is the best suited network setup to stream my music via Roon to my new urendu. At first I've been exploring the simple setup like the latest high-end router with USB attached SSD. But have find out that almost every powerful router drops/freeses and reboots itself iccasionaly despite that it could deliver up to 100MBps over wifi which is what I'm looming for. On the other hand, routers that I love to use — the Airport Extreeme are ultra-reliable and stable but pretty slow (up to 20MB AC standard). Next option is to get a NAS which will solve the speed problem but it's bulky and overloaded with features I don't really need. Sorry for such a long post but any other opinions here? Thanks guys!
