Any reason to upgrade to new Mac Minis?

I have a pretty stable setup with a headless Mac Mini connected over USB to my Aqua Formula DAC. The DAC shows up as a Core Audio device.

I use a Luna dongle to wirelessly send the display output to my iPad and that all works pretty well so that I can stream from anything on the Mini, YouTube, Naxos, whatever.

Is there a compelling reason to upgrade to a new Mac Mini? It is certainly nice that the line has been refreshed, I’m just wondering what I will gain.

I don’t see any reason to, it’s not going to do anything different than your current Mac Mini. You’re not going to see any benefit to a faster processor either.

Spend the money on music.

Right. Time to get the Mozart 225 set. :grinning:
