Thought I would share this here, as it pertains to Amarra...
I quickly realized that no TV or monitor plugged into the Mini made a nice improvement to the sound.
In order to do this, I had been using the Remote App for the Ipad, to control Amarra/ITunes. However, I like the Playlist function for Amarra, with my ever increasing library of music. I like the convenience of dragging the file into the Playlist, and done.
I found an App called PocketCloud, and I know there are others, and I'm sure I am late to this party, but this one works pretty good. It allows me to control the desktop from the Ipad.
So, you effectively improve the sound of the Mini by disconnecting the monitor, while being able to remotely control the Playlist feature of Amarra. Win Win!
