UltraRendu, developed from acclaimed MicroRendu
UltraRendu offers performance improvements over the groundbreaking microRendu. It is in a larger enclosure that perfectly matches the Uptone LPS-1.2 although it can be used with many other power supplies.
UltraRendu remains as an Ethernet input and USB Audio output. All connectors are now located on the rear of the unit for easy cable routing (If you require SPDIF output see ultraDigital option
UltraRendu requires 7v-9v power. We offer a cool running, good quality 7.0v supply. Alternatively, the acclaimed iFi iPower supply (9v). Both are multi-region. Use of voltages above 9v will invalidate warranty. Use an audiophile grade linear PSU or Uptone LPS1.2 for the lowest possible noise floor.

You should not use Cat 7 ethernet cables on the ultraRendu because often they have a grounded shield with a metal plug body which would defeat the units inherent galvanic isolation.

Musical Music Streaming! - Bruce Low - 17/08/2017
I have been listening to Qobuz and Tidal and my local NAS via MacBook and high quality Asynchronous Moon 750D DAC and enjoyed the vast library at CD quality and above. However I felt there might be room for improvement and after following the developments online about improved clocking and power supplies in the Ultra I decided to give the Ultra a go. The setup was supported by Martin's advice, and was not complicated. (The next day I also setup Audirvana in my Mac which fed Qobuz and Tidal MQA to the Ultra via DLNA. Support and screenshots of settings from Sonore were readily available.) The sound quality is delightful and there is no doubt whatsoever that the Ultra made an improvement in my setup. A return to the MacBook as renderer/USB feed confirmed a greyer sound with melody, space sucked out of the presentation. Back with the Ultra results in music where melodies are much more pronounced and the music sounded much more natural and a lot less fatiguing. Space, soundstaging are improved but the key thing is it sounds more like real, and more engaging and interesting music at that! Martin's service and patience are a great asset!
