Up until a couple of years ago I was using a MacBook Pro as my music server a player. I had read a little about Smmall Green Computer and decided to try their Sonic Transport as my music server and the Sonore MicroRendu as my player. The results were nothing less than transformative. After a while I upgraded to the UltraRendu player an have been a very happy camper since. Thes are some of the best products I have ever owned.
