I will be getting a Holo Audio Spring DAC in the very near future. Currently I am using USB output from my mid 2011 mini via USB to my W4S DAC.
The Holo Spring has HDMI input. I run the mini headless via team viewer, so my HDMI input is open. According to the manufacturer, the Holo Spring has best results via HDMi.
Does the mini output the same audio via HDMI as it does from HDMI?
