Newbie audiophile setup for small spaces #
The whole thing (well, everything but the laptop) fits perfectly in the Sennheiser box with the foam removed.
- The last Mac laptop or desktop to include a built-in optical drive. Also the last Mac to be readily accessible and serviceable. The late 2011 model can run Mac OS X 10.6 - 10.9. Includes an Ethernet port.
- Review of the Schiit Audio Vali/Modi Stack
- Despite claims to the contrary, the Modi (along with all Schiit DACs) does support integer mode according to Nick at Schiit Audio.
- Not sure if these cables improve audio quality, but the material quality is better than most. Plus, supporting Schiit feels good.
- Mac OS X 10.6 and 10.9 support integer mode (which takes hog mode/exclusive access a step further by sending audio in the DAC's native format) while OS X 10.7 and 10.8 do not. See Integer Mode Is Back!! and Beyond bit-perfect:
The importance of the Player Software And MAC OS X Playback Integer Mode for more information.
