SONOS Connect is just sitting at the moment and I'd like an alternative to my Macbook Air into my Audio-GD DAC/Headphone amp (4 ea. PCM1704U-K at $70 each) ;-)
I'm using a $1k quartz fused silica toslink cable with mine. Audioquest diamond.
Nice, $70 DAC chips :)
Lol, I love Bluejeans spdif cable, you see I use one too right next to the toslink. I like to switch between toslink and the Bluejeans when I want a friendlier sound I use the Bluejeans, the expensive toslink was an impulse buy as I have no wife or kids to feed, it does sound great but nothing beats the value of the Bluejeans cables.
The mods do an upgraded power supply, etc, all the details are on the Wyred 4 Sound web site. Night and day difference, I have an unmodded connect collecting dust too, want to build a second system and when the time comes I'll get it moddded as well.
I use one between my Mac Mini and my Audio-GD Master 7 (8 ea. SCM1704U-K @ $70 ea.) and it seems to work fine.
Haven't decided whether I like USB or TOSLINK better with the Mac Mini but am guessing that any differences would likely be more of a function of the AMANERO USB card in the DAC rather than the computer or the cable.
Same here, I think both sound very good although slightly different.
I could listen to either one everyday and be happy.
Those $70 chips work wonders!
I have no opinion as your DAC chips are $20 or above :)
