I've used my Reference 10 without issue with pure music on my macbook pro. It has the V3 built into it.
On a side note, I would recommend switching to different power cords besides the pangea AC9's. I had one on my old Audio-gd fun and Reference 10 before deciding to try a little bit nice cable. I've come to the conclusion the AC9 is bass heavy and hardens the treble, making it more fatiguing than it should be. If you don't have that problem with you rig then nevermind. But consider it if you would.
Thanks I'm relieved! I use the AC9 on my active monitors and sub only. On my dac I use the AC14se, I may give another vendor a try but the price is so appealing. Thanks
