2016 is the defining moment. 700$ with ifi powered.
I personally think the SONORE microRendu will take on all these giants in the hifi industry.
Time to migrate your music to a NAS and have a ethernet streamer dac with usb that does not have noise to begin with. And have the option to use multiple dacs in multiple rooms with ethernet.
Chris Connaker of computeraudiophile.com recently reviewed the microRendu and said, "From the beautiful distortion of Hendrix to the simplistic vocals and whisper soft trumpet of Chet Baker, the microRendu enabled all the music to shine in its best light. I don't believe I've had a sonically better source connected to my system at any time."
Michael Lavorgna said this over at Audio Stream, "The first I did this morning, after making coffee, is connect the little microRendu to my hi-fi, set its output for Roon, and hit Play. First impressions: Wow!"
Hans Beekhuyzen said this on his YouTube channel, "The shockingly good Sonore microRendu networked audio adapter is versatile and extremely good sounding."
