Wow, nice! I won't comment further though, as I am a PC fanboy

Gear mentioned in this thread:
This is my first MAC and I will be using it only for playing music, my main computer will be still PC on Win 7, no plans (and no desire) to go on "Apple side"... it's just there is some sinergy of MAC and Debussy through USB... I compared Macbook Air of my friend to Berkeley Alpha USB converter (also was given me by a friend) on my Debussy and I liked the sound of Macbook a bit more, which tells something about sound of MAC + Debussy via USB, this is why I bought MacMini... but I'm struggling to make it work the way I want, for now I kinda find solution acceptable to me: Audirvana+ player on MacMini + Splashtop on my iPad, this way of controlling my MacMini ist't ideal, but acceptable, so I can now put away monitor, keyboard and mouse... but the prices on soft is kinda bugs me: 79 for Audirvana, 5 for Splashtop and 20 for *******ed iTeleport (just wasted money on it, it's lags and not comfortable... after some "fighting" with this program I gave up and tried much cheaper Splashtop which worked almost perfect for that kind of program...)
Got myself my first audiophile USB cable, it's AudioQuest Diamond USB... was quite surprised with the size of DBS "box", didn't try to see much photo of this cable in internet before I got him, so thought it would be much smaller :
Today got myself Shunyata Research Python ZTron power cord:
So here is my current "serpentarium" :
On photo (from outer "ring" to inner "ring"):

There was a sale of Synergistic Research cables at main cable store in Russia (allcables.ru), so I couldn't resist a temptation and bought myself Synergistic Research USB Active SE cable (all 3 Enigma bullets version (standart is version with 2 bullets))... this cable is much different to mine Audioquest Diamond USB in terms of sound, but they both sound very interisting in their own way (Synergistic have very "musical" sound, very involving... Diamond has very "black" background, very high legibility, and each and every sound is very "full"...), so for now I don't know if I will eventually sell one of them or will have both for myself, I think for me to decide this it will take at least a month or two... so here are a few photos (yes, there is a PSU for this USB cable, because the screen of this cable is active...):
It's not like I like them in aethetiс kind, it's just that they affect the sound, the higher the level of audio rig, the more it noticeable and significant... I choose the cables for their sound, as for the price tag, appearance and ergonomics it's not nearly as important as sound for me...
