Optical vs. HiFace USB converter vs. FireWire on MacBook or Mini

Recommended Posts

I like HiFace much more than the optical output of the MacBook, running to Lavry DA10, Mytek, Altmann Attraction, Weiss DAC2 and now Naim DAC. I like Hiface more than using a TC Konnekt as Firewire - SPDIF converter too. However using Weiss DAC2 as a Firewire - SPDIF converter seems to me a bit better than the HiFace, using the same DACs. YMMV :). I think it is not about the format but implementation. You can live with any of the different connection methods easily for the rest of your life, the difference is not night and day.
