Sujay - Thank you for the feedback. Much appreciated.Set up my i5 sonic transporter last week. This replaces my MacBook.....no contest. The system is quieter, better separation, imaging and clarity of vocals and instruments. And at that price, it’s a no brainer......happiness!!
The Zenith is also quite compelling. I finally went down the Lumin U1 route because I got a good price on a used one. Otherwise, my first choice would have been the Signature Rendu optical. I would suggest if you are going down the Sonore route, go whole hog for the signature optical.Have pretty much whittled down my streamer/server options to SGC i5 w MicroRendu and LPS to supply both (or Roon Nucleus/Innuos Zenith), into something like an MHDT Orchid/Lab12/Kitsune Holo Springs dac.
I have no reservations about likely SQ, all reports on SGC have been uniformly excellent, as per Sujay.
I'm really interested in things like user interface, esp as a customer who has zero skills in computer audio, and likely v little input from a 3rd party.
Any comments on Roon Rock used on Nucleus versus Linux on SGC?
Can you send me a link to Signature Rendu optical?
MicroRendu not sufficient?
- I don't have any mainline dealer relationship, and am all thumbs and pounding headaches when it comes to computers LOL
Also may Innuos users have complained that the Innuos Zenith is not fast enough to run Roon Core. It's Intel Celeron processor is just barely at the low limit of the spec for Roon core. You get much better Roon performance using an i5. So many Innuos Zenith owners use the Innuos Zenithas a Roon Ready player and use a sonicTranspoerter i5 for their Roon Core.
it'll work even better with none of it.
