Pre- Launch - microRendu Version 1.5

Jul 9, 2018
The original Sonore microRendu v1.3 was discontinued in March 2020 because certain parts on the unit were becoming hard to get. Soon afterward, we decided to redesign the unit improving some components and upgrading others. Another key goal of the project was to reduce the price without compromise to the performance. With a little bit of hard work, we were able to achieve all the project goals and we think you will be thrilled with the new Sonore microRendu v1.5.

Here is what we did:

1. Improved two power converters and their associated capacitors using some new ones that are much better than what we had years ago. The result is significantly better power network performance.
2. Improved the clock buffer to one used in opticalRendu. This part has a MUCH lower jitter.
3. Improved the USB A jack to the through-hole one used in other Rendu boards. This was done to increase reliability.
4. Changed the standard case color to black with v1.5 silkscreened on to the faceplate to tell the versions apart.
5. Ships with SonicOrbiter 2.8.
6. New lower price starting at $399.

Availability: Coming very soon.
The Small Green Computer website has been updated so you can be among the first to pre-order a unit.
