RE: Schiit DACs don't do DSD. nt

My Mini has no LPS. Might be a big difference there.

It's late 2014, 16 Gb RAM. 2.6 Ghz. 256 Mb SSD. Yes, plan to sell, most likely. I do have to first ensure the Melco sounds at least as good. But it sounds like your Mini is as good and has LPS installed to boot.

I have to reboot because sometimes I experience drop-outs, and rebooting fixes it. "Something" is going on. Like I said, this is a general-purpose computer running a general-purpose OS, not something optimized for music playback only.

Another permutation is using the Melco *with* the Rendu. This is possible, as the Melco can act as a NAS. I will try this to see if it sounds better than the Melco nude.

Of course, that would largely eliminate the simplification goal, so if that happens, damn it.
