Hi everyone, I'm new both in this forum and in the audiophile world. I've a problem whit the optical output on my iMac. I bought a Dac (a Beresford Bushmaster Dac) and I connected it via toslink to my iMac with Mountain Lion Osx, now the problem: when i try to play files until 48kHz it's all ok, but when i try to play some file at 88kHz or 96 or higher the sound is distorted... or better it's not sound coming out but it seems like scratches ("scrrrr"). If i plug the toslink cable to my macbook pro with Lion all works correctly... Can someone help me i don't want to change the Dac (or the Osx...). Thanks all in advance and sorry for my bad bad english. Riccardo.
Experiment: - Streaming 24bit/96kHz signal from (Win 7) PC (using iTunes Home Sharing) to iPad+ID100 and then onwards to Cambridge Audio DacMagicPlus results in 48 kHz signal shown on the Dac. - Using the Apple Camera Connection Kit (CCK) (USB) results in 96 kHz signal shown on the Dac (as it should.) - Playing (using FLAC player) 24/96 file via ID100 is also downsampled. Using the CCK it is bit perfect, i.e. 96 kHz. Conclusion: the ID100's ceiling is 24 bit/48 kHz. I checked this with Cambridge Audio and got feedback that this is according to Apple specs. That being said, the combination ID100 + DacMagicPlus sounds great.
