  1. Newbie question RE Mac USB bus

    Hi All, This is my first post here. I've been a lurker for a few weeks since discovering this great site in my quest to build my Mac Mini music server. I am currently using an Arcam rDAC which is hooked up to my 2011 Mac Mini via USB. I've auditioned Pure Music and I am now trying out Audirvana. I am aware that it is important to ensure that no other USB devices are connected. I have moved away from using a USB-connected external hard-drive and am instead using firewire. I also understand that it is important to turn off the IR controller too. I noticed that the Audirvana User Manual mentions that the DAC should be listed alone under a High speed USB bus section. I am currently using a bluetooth keyboard, but see the following in the system preferences for USB: (hope that screenshot works ok) The DAC does not appear to be "alone" but appears together with the Bluetooth USB host controller. Is this going to have a detrimental impact?
