Audiogon Forum Review: Review of STi5 server (Small Green Computer) and Signature Series Rendu renderer (Sonore) - March 28th, 2019

Of course I'd expected a major improvement; but this was more like dying and going to heaven. Every aspect of performance was radically improved, such that experience of listening to and appreciating music was completely transformed.

Sonore Signature Rendu SE & Small Green Computer sonicTransporter i7 for Roon DSP Review - - by: Doug Schroeder - June 8th, 2018

"I made a good step upward from the Mac Mini by moving to the StreamPlayer III. Now, with the sonicTransporter and Rendu SE I have made another substantial step upward. The two-component, very high speed, high quality digital playback of the combination is most rewarding. I strongly recommend it, and I will be seeking to make it my digital source for reviewing going forward."

Classier! Sonore’s ultraRendu takes digital audio higher still

"...This lends the ultraRendu the upper hand with musical intensity — again, without the side-effect of greater tension. Vocals especially, they really lean in. More so than with the microRendu....." John H. Darko -

Digital Audio Review  - May 2nd, 2017

Sonore microRendu software update adds Spotify Connect

"Several reasons why Spotify addition to the Sonore microRendu this week might be seen as a Big Deal™. As one part of a v2.5 update to the Small Green Computer-developed Sonicorbiter operating system and de/activated via its web interface, the microRendu now offers an additional output mode: Spotify Connect. A win for pragmatists (like me) who bowl in through the front door and want to cut their iPhone-headphone listening immediately over to the main rig.."  John H.

Digital Audio Review  - January 27th, 2017

"The Sonore streamer (microRendu) lends music greater separation, more avidity, richer tonality, more micro-dynamic alertness but, perhaps paradoxically, delivered with a greater sense of ease."  John H.

2016 Computer Audiophile Overall Product of the Year - microRendu

Computer Audiophile - December 12th, 2016

"The Sonore microRendu is the hottest piece of hardware in HiFi. It's versatile while avoiding the jack of all trades moniker. The microRendu was custom designed and built to deliver USB audio in the most pristine way possible, and it accomplishes this goal magnificently. Versatile software with uncompromising inflexible hardware is a great combination...."

Audiostream Review of the sonicTransporter i5 - July 14th, 2016

I did hear a difference and that difference was immediately recognizable and not subtle. With the sonicTransporter in my system, music sounds more natural, more fully-formed, and more engaging. Subtle musical nuance came through with more emotional impact when listening with the sonic Transporter in my system making music that much more...gripping. That much more live-like..  Michael Lavorgna -

Audiostream Review of the microRendu - June 30th, 2016

If you own a USB DAC and want to play network-attached music through it, the Sonore microRendu is currently the best option I've come across—regardless of price. If that doesn't make your computer-audio-music-loving heart bulge with delight, I don't know what will.  Michael Lavorgna -
