  1.

  2. I bought an OWC Thunderbolt 3 Dock to use with my 2017 MacBook Pro. The dock works in terms of powering the machine and my iPhone and iPad, however I cannot use it to play music through the headphone output or through a USB 3 port to my Dragonfly DAC. The Dock doesn't show up either in the audio MIDI setup or the 'sound' window in system preferences. After talking to Apple support over the phone for an hour they suggested that the fault lay with the OWC dock rather than an apple software or hardware issue. Has anybody else had experience with this issue and been able to shed some light on this problem?
  3. Afternoon everyone. I have a moderate stereo setup at my house which I've been enjoying for a number of years, which I run off of a windows based HTPC, which is now getting quite old and I'm noticing some issues. Now since I work in IT, I have a lot of equipment laying around, including a Mac Mini that I haven't used for quite some time. Decided to play with it, so I threw Kodi on it, installed Audirvana and a bit of music. I have the Lenehan PDX as a DAC and had to install the HiFace driver, but it worked pretty seamlessly after installation. Fired up some music and was immediately... disappointed. The music sounded muddled, which is not characteristic of my system. I tried a few different programs, including J-River which is what I've used on my PC, and I will admit that the difference is still fairly noticeable. To be sure, I plugged it back into my old HTPC and as best as I can tell, it simply sounds much better. Now, I understand that what I'm familiar with might sound better to me, but in this case I'm being as objective as I possibly can be. Does anyone have any advice as to why the Mac Mini might be so sub-par? Any advice would be greatly appreciated. Cheers.
  4. Hi all I need to rip approx 900 CDs (all standard Redbook) on a Mac Mini Server running Yosemite OSX. I intend to rip to FLAC. Interested to hear from Mac users about what ripping and tagging software they use. I was leaning towards dbpoweramp but the artwork, metadata and accuracy-check app - PerfectTunes - is Windows only. Is this a deal-breaker? What are my other options? Opinions on XLD? Playback might deserve its own thread but if you want to share opinions there too I'm all ears. Keen to give iTunes a miss (because FLAC). Audirvana Plus? Sorry if these questions have been asked before - I did search the forum first, but please feel free to direct me to older topics. Cheers, Dylan/Art
  5. Item: HiRise for iMac (x2) Location: Perth Price: $65 each includes shipping nationwide (these sell for $95+ brand new) Item Condition: Very good to excellent Reason for selling: Surplus Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Paypal (buyer pays fees), Bank Deposit Extra Info: No longer needed. These units are supplied in original packaging and are both on excellent condition. There are some scuff marks on the inner shelf (cant be seen in normal use). One of the units has a scuff towards the rear right, but again, can only be seen in the right light and as its to the rear, would not be seen in use. From the website:- HiRise is an elegant iMac stand designed to elevate your iMac or Apple Display to your optimal viewing height for a more comfortable and ergonomic work station. HiRise has an internal metal support shelf that lets you adjust the height of your Mac in one of six internal positions and is over-engineered to securely support any iMac or Apple Display. HiRise also creates a hidden storage compartment that’s perfect for stashing hard drives and cables, or your wallet and keys. Save your back and ditch the stack of books under your iMac in favor of HiRise. Pictures:
  6. Mac mini late 2012 Great condition $950 Pretty much mint (its just been sitting there). Bought this from someone in 2014 when it was 6 months old. Has run flawlessly ever since, not a hiccup. In 2015 I put a Samsung 850 Pro 512GB SSD in it alongside the original 1TB spinner. Supports dual monitors. No box. Its just been wiped and has a fresh install of OSX Sierra. Fantastic computer for photo editing, music production or day to day use. Theres one without the SSD on eBay at the moment with a bid at $740 so ill ask for $950 and see how I go - its not a cheap drive. Otherwise on the bay it goes.

  8. guys, an uncle of ours has given us a couple of old LPs that he would love to have in digital form…file or CD which is preferable to him. When I ran a pc I just ran from phono stage to analog inputs on my audigy drive bay I ran, of course don't have that on our macbook pro and wondering what is a good solution ? straight into the audio in via the headphone port or should I go usb ? what devices are around for that and what should I use for software ? any suggestions guys…if this is more appropriate in the turntable section can move there, but thought this is more computer based i.e. what input means, devices needed and software ?

  10. Hi its David's Geek here, in a month im leaving for Europe for a short trip and i need a lightweight computer to replace my 16gb ipad 2 wifi. What i really want is a cheap macbook air and i dont mind how old it is as long as it is a reliable machine. Depending on the age, size and quality i would be happy to pay up to $350 and to be honest i dont care much about the cosmetic condition. Im happy to trade my Ipad and some cash depending the computer.
  11. Hi all, I have been using my Rega DAC with USB from my 2014 Macbook pro. As the USB only goes to 48Khz I ordered an optical cable, hooked this up and went to the "Audio devices" config to change the optical output to 192khz. The DAC light indicates 192 but sounds becomes completely distorted /choppy. Basically any setting above 48khz has this effect. Does anyone has any idea why this is not working? Thanks heaps, Mark

  15. Noticed that Jriver 19 for Mac now has an option to select integer mode. So far I haven't had a chance to review any affect on sound quality. Anyone else noticed features Good or Bad in Mavericks relating to audio?

  17. help! OK just got brand new NFB 3.2 DAC and it won't work. Set it up with ITunes on my iMac outputting through the provided USB cable to the NFB 3.2 DAC. Used nasty RCAs from the NFB to my integrated amp. Moment of truth. For 7 seconds sweet nectar. What a sound. Then it goes wierd. The sound becomes wobbly, it disintegrates then after a few more seconds it fragments to just crackles. I can repeat this. I stop the player and start again and it will play OK for 5 seconds then go bad. Why? Is this jitter (I though jitter was something subtle, not devastating) I have tried an alternative USB - no help. Have not tried optical The output file type makes no difference - Apple lossless, mp4, other Went into 'Audio Devices' on the Mac and set format as 24 bit instead of 16 bit (can't controls the volumes) Changing 'Flavor' (filter?), 'ACSS/RCA' and 'Selector' on the DAC do not seem to mitigate issue Any ideas? Much appreciated.
