I am new to computer hi-fi. Yesterday I connected my new external DAC (Heed Dactilus III) to my MacPro (2006) and I also tried my iPad (2.gen) with a camera-connector-USB adaptor. The amplifier (Eclipse A501) and speakers (Eclipse 508) were the same. The music files were Apple Lossless files from iTunes. There was a noticeable difference in the sound quality. The iPad-USB-DAC was much worse than the MacPro-USB-DAC combination. I thought that USB signal should be identical in both scenarios. Could someone help me explain why this difference between iPad and MacPro? Thanks. Lez
