  1. Hello, I'm in the process of optimising my MacMini to serve as my sole audio source to the rest of my system. I've been reading here two contradictory approaches: 1. Run as few apps as possible. If possible only your player (A+ in my case). Everything interferes with the SQ. vs 2. Use something like Splashtop to control the MacMini remotely and get rid of display, mouse and keyboard. Since Splashtop (or whatever) has to transfer everything happening in the MacMini screen to the remote client, I'd say it must do quite a lot of screen scrapping, even when you're not interacting with it. Has anyone found that a headless MacMini (running the inevitable screen scrapping server) sounds worse than a MacMini with display and bluetooth mouse and keyboard? Cheers, Nuno
  2. I want to try 'topanga' or 'lagoon' pocket server but I need this to sit on an equipment rack with no display, keyboard, etc. just a USB to dac connection with music sitting on an WD NAS drive in another room. I realize I will need keyboard, monitor to initially set up Jriver, once set up I am planning to use Jremote and my IPAD to control things. Question is, if I lose power, or need to restart for some reason do I have to reconnect keyboard, screen to do this ? I realize this is a pretty basic question but I am just not clear on how this works. Any help would be greatly appreciated
