    At night, it could also be the smaller seismic-induced vibrations (c.f. Townshend).

    Thanks for sharing your listening impressions.

    The only seismic vibrations were in the prior Microrendu threads here that are CLOSED due to misbehavior of the smart A_S children here!

    Seriously, I must have been stoned last night, it couldn't possibly sound that fantastic!!!@@@ (I was not)

    Wonderful sounding device, were it not for Devialet releasing AIR3 in the past two weeks I would still have mine. As fate would have it, AIR 3 offered equal audio quality to the microRendu.

    The Sonic Transporter is $375. Without storage. That the one I ordered.

    Here's some info from Jesus, of Sonore, from the Sonore subforum at Computer Audiophile Forum:

    OK, first of all, I cannot specifically say that the Signature Supply (henceforth SPS) is superior to say, the JS-2 or the LPS-1. I do not have a JS-2, and the LPS-1 does not yet really exist. It is quite likely that the JS-2 would work very well with the ÁRendu, but it would be best if the JS-2 was solely powering the ÁRendu alone, as a dedicated supply is always going to have a technical advantage to a shared supply (shared transformer in this case). As to why the SPS is so good, that is pretty easy. The SPS is designed specifically to provide an ultra low noise, and ultra low impedance supply for the ÁRendu. It is designed to be able to provide plenty of peak current, giving it generous headroom. And it is designed to meet the ideal power requirements of the ÁRendu according to John Swenson: low impedance delivery, the ability to handle all kinds of transients with fast response and settling. In addition, and unlike some of the other supplies mentioned here, the SPS also offers the lowest noise possible from a regulated supply, by using an ideal, custom, discrete regulator. I know John believes that super low noise is not necessarily a requirement for the ÁRendu power supply, and I understand his point, as he already uses quite low noise local regulators onboard the ÁRendu. But my experience has always been that even with very low noise local regs, a low noise pre-regulated supply still brings benefits when powering digital circuits. So, with the SPS we have an ultra low impedance (to handle transient loads) and ultra low noise supply, with plenty of current capability. How we do this is just pretty standard stuff, well chosen parts, a damped transformer secondary to keep ringing to a minimum, a bit of filtering on the incoming AC line, large amounts of main supply filter capacitance, and a really, really good discrete regulator. A bit of a note on the price of the SPS: this is high quality audio product, with many parts sourced from the US, including a very nice aluminum chassis, and a custom made DC cable produced for us by Cardas, and it is hand built to order. While we might be able to achieve similar performance with a much cheaper chassis, at a bit lower price point, we made the SPS to be high quality inside and out, and so we put it in beautiful custom chassis of heavy gauge aluminum, rather than some off the shelf box made in China.

There is quite a bit of space in the middle of the chassis so that the transformer and AC input wiring can be spaced away from the output board. Then there is the input IEC with filter capacitor, switch and fuses on the transformer side, and a Neutrik Powercon jack on the power supply board side with the output wiring. I would rather not talk about specific part choices, as these are both proprietary and subject to change, occasionally.
    Well I am certainly impressed, objectively and most importantly sonically! The Sonore Signature Power Supply is so well built and easy to look at! More importantly, the sonics using this power supply with the Microrendu are unparalled! I feel like the gal singin' or the band playin' is right in the room with me! Amazing! Congrats on phenomenal products, the Microrendu and the Sonore Signature Power Supply. In my case, I decided to get it with the Synergistic Research black fuses (2) (product just became available a few months ago), for which Sonore is also a dealer.

    I gather we're not going to mention the forthcoming Uptone Audio UltraCap(TM) LPS-1 or the forthcoming Vinnie Rossi ultracapacitor-based power supplies which both can also be used to power the Sonore microRendu.

    Yea, anything that isn't proven by AES is verboten to some

    We're simply not gonna mention this thread, the Microrendu or various power supplies🤑 Right now I'm listening to Linn Records "Applewood Road" country folk by group of the same name Emily Barker, Amber Rubarth & Amy Speace! I am in heaven!
