Reading Stereophile, browsing computeraudiophile and digitalaudioblog I'm struck by the number of high end DACs appearing out there in the 2,000 to 7,000 price range. There appears to be a huge range and choice, though I wonder if there are too many for specialist retailers and agents to handle, much less potential buyers to audition.
Think I will try bitperfect, my drobo can be noisy at times.
I am revising my opinion of nosleep. When it is turned on with the lid closed the fan seems to run all the time. Having the lid closed, the processor on ful, with the fan on means the machine gets warm, istat nano says the CPU is upto 80c. So I think it is back to no nosleep and just leave the lid 1-2cm open.
DrWebster nosleep-extension has done the trick. Didn't get a chance to try insomniax.   thanks
Tried attaching a USB mouse & closing the lid. It did wake up the mac but the attached Drobo didn't fully wake-up (it seemed to try but went back to sleep) and the Mac seemed to go back to sleep when the Drobo did.
Soundman;   I will try plugging in a keyboard or mouse, thanks. If Salon goes to the trouble of writing an article on this it is an real issue.  Dr Webster, have you tried nosleep-extension. Cheaper & less space intensive than a keyboard.
This evening I started to use my MacBook to feed a DAC. since I am using the Apple Remote app I didn't think I needed the lid open, but it turns out that closing the lid puts he laptop into some sort f power save mde, in which condition it won't play music. Is there a way of stopping the behaviour in Macs? i could just leave the laptop open, but closing it is a bit neater, avoids dust.
I have re-registered, I can go into My PS and edit my details, my PWD shows up there. Is there some extra step along the way, linking or enabling forum posts?  
How do I log onto the psaudio.com forums?   Trying here because...I cannot submit posts to the psaudio site.   - I log in, "Welcome," my username, "Logout" appear in the top left. - I navigate to Support/Community forums, or to Resources/Community, navigate to the topic I want to contribute to, click "Add a comment", - and see a dialogue box which asks for username/password. When I re-enter my login I get sorry no account with that...
Help me out here (this is a question I emailed in, but I'll try again).   If I am an SR-009 user, should I have a preferance between Aristaeus or Blue Hawaii? If the difference is down to relatively minor things then quicker delivery would be attractive. Best thing would be to go listen, but Canjam isn't convenient.
