I use Audirvāna Studio 2.x running on a 2018 Mac. It is January 2023.
I generally use FLAC files and no filters or add-ons in Audirvāna.
The sound is already pretty good to me and the best I heard so far on my system.
My 2013 Mac (connected to the same sound system) did not produce sound that was as good. Both Macs have the recommended 8GB RAM. Both Macs used the exclusive access setting in Audirvāna.
I’m trying to determine whether upgrading my Mac would improve the sound.
Has anyone experienced a sound quality improvement on a newer Mac with Apple silicon processor like M1 or M2?
