Indeed (I Googled) and it looks like it was introduced to the laptop line at that time, as well.

I've heard it said that inputting from 32 to 24 can lead to a more bit-perfect signal. How true this is I have no idea. I don't imagine it would make an overly large deal, doubtfully one you'd be able to hear.

 

If I remember correctly, the DAC just truncates the last 8 bits of data when it sees a higher bitrate than it's expecting, so, unless I'm wrong, trying to jam 32 into a converter running at 24 will not get you any sonic benefits.

Just purchased a 13in Pro w/ Retina and I'm listening to Goat Rodeo Session through my Fostex HP-A3 and Modded D2k (I know, I'm to lazy to get up and get my X1's) and this is just silly good. The headphone Jack does double as a SPDIF so I have a toslink running to the DAC and man... All is well in the Demon household. 

 

Big Fan 

 

 

Thanks,
