The two reasons that I've heard for using a mini rather than a laptop are1. The LCD monitor in a laptop can be a significant source of RFI/EMI. Getting the screen away from the CPU and sound outputs mitigates this. Or you could just run the Mini with the built-in screen sharing from another Mac.2. It fits more easily into an equipment rack. You don't really need a monitor. If you use iTunes you can run it from an iPhone or via screen sharing as noted above.I currently use a MacBook (with the screen turned off and operated via screen sharing across my home network). This worked for me since a) I had a MacBook available after upgrading to a MacBook Pro, and b) I use Play rather than iTunes since it sounds better, and screen sharing let's me control it while Remote on the iPhone does not.Hope that helps.
External DAC: KRK Ergo firewire dac
Hi and welcome to AC! Would really like to hear your impressions of the Ergo.
Too bad the Ergo does not have a digital out for use with an external DAC. Would make a nice stand alone room correction device.
Either way the 2010 mini is sonically superior. I dunno why people can't get this one straight.
