Hello Mac peoples:
I have two different Macs I can earmark to use solely as a dedicated music server with Audirvana. I have a Topping D-10 DAC (USB between Mac and DAC).
- 2011 MacBook Pro 2.2Ghz, i7 processor,16GB memory and 1TB internal SSD
- Late 2012 MacMini 2.3 GHz Core i7 processor, 16GB memory and 1TB internal hybrid drive.
Other than aesthetics, is there any compelling reason to use one over the other? As computers, their performance is similar. I don’t have the experience and full understanding of each of their architecture to know if one would be better over the other.
Side note: both would function headless with a OWC Headless Accelerator gizmo
Any fellow Mac geeks out there with an opinion to share?
Thanks in advance
