Sonore microRendu & Uptone UltraCap LPS-1 +iPower
Will Ship To: CONUS preferred
For sale is my awesome SONORE microRendu and Uptone UltraCap LPS-1. This amazing little device, combined with one of the best linear power supplies available for it, is a minicomputer that proceeds from a router's ethernet output to a DAC's USB input, bypassing the noisy USB interface of one's computer source completely and isolating from one's noisy AC-line. The uRender, which has garnered several awards for 2016, has brought my headphone system to its highest point, superseding the Mutec MC-3+USB I once had.
In addition to the uRendu, I am also selling the well-received Uptone UltraCap LPS-1. With the LPS-1, the sound from the uRendu becomes much more focused and palpable, the background noticeably blacker. This is certainly due to is supreme isolating ability from AC-currents. After listening to the uRendu with the LPS-1, I stopped caring about upgrades. The only reason I am selling these is because I need to buy a DAP due to an increased need for portable listening.
The LPS-1 is a single output, 1-amp linear power supply intended for powering a wide range of audio and computer devices. Examples include: UpTone's own USB REGEN, the Sonore MicroRendu, small DACs and headphone amps, USB>S/PDIF converters, specialty computer USB cards, SSDs, fibre media converters, PS Audio LANRover, SqueezeBox Touch, etc.
A switch on the back of the LPS-1 allows for setting of the output voltage to 3.3V, 5V, or 7 volts.
Both devices are in like new condition, with the exception of a small, half-millimeter size scratch on an obscure corner of the uRendu (see picture). The uRendu is $640 new and LPS-1 is $395 new. I drive the LPS-1 with the iFi ipower power supply, which is itself $49 new. The total price I paid was $1084.
I am pricing all three units at $935, plus shipping and PP. I would strongly prefer to sell all of these as a single package, since they synchronize so well together as a complete system and since I will not be able to use one part without the other. For now, I will prioritize those interested in both the LPS and streamer. If for some reason that does not work, I will then consider selling them separately.
Again, final price is $943 for the uRendu, LPS-1, and the iPower, with buyer paying shipping and fees.
Thank you for looking!
