Here is my system overview;
Mac mini (Late 2012) with a 2.5GHZ Intel core i5 processor.It has been modified to 16 GB of RAM and the Drive was upgraded to 250 GB SSD. The power supply was removed and replaced with an external TERADAK unit. Music is stored on external Drobo 5DT mass storage device connected via Thunderbolt directly to the Mini. The Mini directly feeds my Wyred 4 Sound Anniversary DAC via USB. It should be noted that my music library is extremely large with over 8TB’s of music/ 11,000+ albums. Thanks in advance for your help and look forward to hearing from you.
