I thought I'd bump my favorite thread with an update on my recent travels in computer audio. I replaced my Sonore microRendu and Uptone Audio LPS-1 with an ultraRendu and Uptone LPS-1.2 and found that both the uR and the 1.2 had similar effects in my system: each one added a greater sense of body and weight to whatever's playing. (Usually internet radio -- so shoot me!) This finding echoes what's already been written here about the uR and 1.2. Good stuff.
My whole chain delivers Roon with the (by now obligatory) Cisco 2960 switch, through a Blue Jeans Audio ethernet cable to a SonicOrbiter 1.5 Roon server, then via another Blue Jeans ethernet cable to the uR, which is powered by the LPS-1.2 and Sonore DC4 power cable, then out to a Chord Hugo 2 via a Curious Cables USB "Hugo link", and finally through a Chord Shawline RCA to DIN cable to my 282.
Sounds pretty boss to me! And it's utterly reliable, with none of the dropouts that often seem to plague the streamers discussed on the forum, many of which, sadly, are Naim's own.
I know the above chain may seem bewildering to the uninitiated, but really, it all works together seamlessly and in my opinion is no more of a faff to set up than any streamer.
