Claero,

If you are asking me that, what I meant was there is no discernible difference between using the the USB and optical outputs of the Mac Mini into the 518 and then on to the rest of the system:

Mac Mini Opt Out ---> 518 Opt In ---> 518 AES/EBU out --->

or

Mac Mini USB Out ---> 518 USB In ---> 518 AES/EBU out --->

The 518 works so well that it removes the differences between the two.

All the best,
Steve

One more thing, you won't have a USB input on your 518; I have the only one as far as I know...

Besides filling in the bored moments wouldn't something like this be a heck of a lot easier (and cheaper). Fully Async, XMos based and support for WASAPI/ASIO on Windows.

And fully reversible in 15 seconds smile

M2Tech HiFace2

Kind of like putting a Bluray player in a 800DVD cabinet, who'd ever do that.

If you think listening to music is fun, try learning an instrument.

'Because it's there' sort of thing.

It was cheaper my way too.
