Aune x1 24/192khz via a Mac Mini running Mavericks OS


Recommended Posts

Hello, I'm new to this forum and am hoping there are individuals here that are utilizing A Mac mini utilizing Mavericks OS into a AUNE X1 pro. My issues is that I can not seem to change the midi settings for my sub to 24/192 on my Mac. It seems there is much confusion with how to achieve this. Is anyone using this DAC with a Mac mini and able to achieve 24/192khz throughput....

 

Any suggestions are welcomed,...this is drive me crazy!

 

regards,

According to the Google machine results, the Aune X1 only supports up to 24/96 via USB.

While I agree "Everything may matter" working out what actually affects the sound is a trickier thing.

And I agree "Trust your ears" but equally don't allow them to fool you - trust them with a bit of skepticism.

My question was directed for those who are using the Aune X1 pro. Which in fact is capable of 24/192. 24/96 is limited via toslink on a Mac OS.

Just to clarify what I was saying...

 

Your Aune X1 Pro only supports up to 24/96 via USB therefore you will never see Mac OS offering you higher rates than this. The only way to play back 24/192 is via the SPDIF Co-ax or TOSLink connector.

 

As you say the TOSLink on the MacMini is limited to 24/96; this precludes using that for 24/192.

 

If you wanted 24/192 support therefore you will have to buy an alternative interface; the most likely option is to get a USB to SPDIF converter. These start at around $100-150 for the likes of the M2Tech HiFace II or Peachtree Audio X1 interface.
