If I may add...with our system we decouple the server and the endpoint on purpose to separate the noise component from the clean component over the network. Any noisy computer, NAS, server, or the internet (only one is needed) can stream to a Rendu. The Sonore Signature Rendu is also a very high end single component with built in power supply. While you can add countless gadgets before and after, as some suggest, it's not necessary at all to get great sound.Joe, the SGC/SystemeOptique combination is on my radar. I have read a couple of user reports concluding the Innuos Zenith Mk3 just shades things, and there's the possibility of better things w the Innuos Phoenix USB reclocker as well.
The main reason I may forgo SGC/Rendu is the doubling of boxes compared to Innuos w attendant need for more pwr cords, and quadrupoling of box count/sets of footers w added LPSs. The Zen/Zenith is a one-box solution.
