RE: Initial impressions RPi vs uRendu

"...I'm comparing how folks actually use them..."

It is just you. Sorry. You're comparing two systems, your unique systems. Not just two devices.

The thread title is misleading, thus your thread and
conclusion is pretty useless to us folks.

If you intend to run a rather useful comparison "Pi vs. MicroRendu" hook your Audiophilio up to the Pi and microRendu. That at least would make a little sense to us folks.
You'd still don't know what software tweaks are implemented on the MicroRendu. One thing for sure. Svensson was closely following my
SB Touch adventures and trying these himself. I'm pretty sure he put quite a focus into that area too.

Then the USB ports of the PI are not known for audiophile qualities.
Bottom line. If I'd run a to me useful shootout on USB transports, I'd put at least something like a $100 iPurifier to the test environment. That still would make a nice combo and a bargain solution in comparison to the MR.
