Comparing the sound of the microRendu with the sMS-200 using multiple power supplies, I definitely preferred the sMS-200. The microRendu is not as detailed sounding, or for that matter, as fast sounding as the sMS-200. Both micro- and macro-dynamic changes to the music were more realistically reproduced with the sMS-200. Low bass is better controlled and has greater impact when listening to the sMS-200.

I’m more happy to award SOtM sDP-1000EX with Mono & Stereo’s Best Buy Award for what it represents This is the first award to go out in 2017 and its more than well deserved for what this mighty box represents at its given price. Stay tuned for part two of the review where sDP-1000EX will be joined by sMS-200 and dCBL-U2-C. -Matej Isak - Mono & Stereo Click here to read the review

"Considering the price difference in favour of the SOtM and its greater flexibility and feature set, the sMS-200 easily takes the top spot in my list of recommended file players and walks away with a well-deserved value award." Frederic Beudot Click here to read the review
An excellent review of the SOtM sMS-200. Hans Beekhuyzen compared it with the higher-priced Sonore microRendu using the same model power supply, and concluded that the sMS-200 surpassed it - "right away the microRendu was over taken by the SOtM." Other notable comments - "better while the price is lower", "the sound is even more relaxed and open in the mid range and also the lows are better controlled"
