The sonicTransporter i9 is Small Green Computer’s signature music server, featuring top-notch upsampling, a responsive user interface and the least amount of playback latency. This superfast noiseless box runs Roon Server and many other applications with ease and efficiency. 

No keyboard or monitor is needed for this plug-and-play music server, which is easy to access with a web browser from your tablet. 

This top-end server is built for Roon DSP and runs all high processor requirement upsampling, digital volume control, and DSD to PCM conversions with ease. Eight cores of power are used to run multiple DSP plug-ins at once. This server is great for upsampling to DSD512. Additionally, it has the capability to index large music collections rapidly. 

The sonicTransporter i9 uses the fastest-available technology to give our customers a premium experience. Its i9 processor is kept passively cool by fins located on the sides of the case. A billet aluminum front mirrors the high-quality internal parts with a sleek appearance.

    What's Included

    • sonicTranspoter i9 optical
    • 19v 7A (120v - 220v) power supply - works in any country (US-type power cord included)
    • 1m LAN cable
    • SFP module
    • 60-day Roon trial

     

    Notes

    • Although many different types of fiber and SFP transceivers will work we recommend Gigabit SFP modules that work with OM1 (62.5/125 µm multi-mode) type multi-mode fiber with LC connectors for all systemOptique certified products. This will allow your systemOptique product to work at its highest level of performance. 
    • It is possible to power the i9 with your own power supply, though this is not recommended. If you want better sound, isolate your player with optical Ethernet.
    • If you really want to use your own supply, it must be 19V and at least 7 amps. The connector is a 7.4mm x 5.1mm with internal pin. These are typically used on Dell and HP laptops. This cable from Amazon will work: 7.4mm x 5.1mm cable.
