RE: I'm intrigued

"I just have a hard tiume accepting that the rendu is going to make much of a difference over my direct connection from my imac via usb."

Not sure it needs to in order to be a viable solution. OTOH, I've known John Swenson for quite a long while and would bet that it does, at least when compared to my MacBook Air.

I can stream QOBUZ, TIDAL and play ripped CDs from any computer in the house, as long as I have a DAC nearby.

But with the uRendu, all I need is an Ethernet jack and a USB DAC and I'm in business, no laptop needed.

IF you intend to put your music on a NAS drive and have a decent Ethernet LAN in you house, it might be the way to go.

For myself, I use SONOS in about every room but for $100+ and a bit of work, the HiFi Berry Raspberry Pi solution might have some merit. I really like the idea of getting computers out of my music system and back in the office where they belong.

Plus it would give me a chance to find out if my brain is capable of dealing with technical issues at this late date.
