  • Sonicorbiter - Multichannel

    This thread is intended to be a supplement to the Sonore Rendu series user manuals. The manuals contain quick start information that can be viewed here:
    Sonicorbiter Rendu Series - User Manuals

    I have been conducting some tests in order to get my hands around multichannel playback. Here are the results so far:

    The following is based on tests conducted with a miniDSP UDAC-8 - asynchronous USB to 8 channel analog RCA converter. The DAC is capable of 8 channel @ 24/192kHz so no DSD tests have been conducted. I'm powering the DAC with a Sonore 5 VDC linear power supply and it sounds great considering the overall cost:

    TESTED OUTPUT MODES

    1. Roon / RoonReady output mode - confirmed

    4. Logitech Meda Server / SqueezeLite - busted, does not play
    6. HQ Player / NAA - confirmed

    KNOWN ISSUES

    MPD is converting stereo into whatever number of channels your DAC supports. MPD does this by copying the stereo channels into the remains channels. Multichannel files appear to play fine with a multichannel test file.
