MacBook Pro streamer


Hi,
I want to stream from my 2019 Macbook Pro connected to Ayon CD-35 via USB.
The problem I have, the Mac doesn't recognize the Ayon. I call apple but after a few setups, they can fix it. Is someone here who experience the same problem? Thank you.

While USB works well when using a dedicated streamer, it seems to work less well coming out of a computer.  USB tends to pick up a good amount of noise from the computer.

Before I moved on to dedicated streamers, I bought from Schiit Audio a USB>SPDIF converter and used that for input into my DAC. For about $120, it gave a noticeable improvement in sound quality for me, and it also solved some communication errors like you’re experiencing. As I recall, they also have a nice return policy.  

Good luck. 
Does it need a special Ayon CD-35 USB driver... I can’t get the manual from the Ayon web site without a password... There is a USB driver there and I did not try to access it...

What player software are you using to access the Ayon with? Something like Roon or Audirvana?
Is all good. The USB port from Ayon is bad. Shame for such an expensive toy. I send it back to be repaired. I'll keep you posted. Thank you all for the inputs.

Paul here from USA Tube Audio - we received  Marians CD-35 today, tested the USB port and it works perfectly - We have never had a USB port on a CD-35 fail.

Thank you, Paul,
You're right. Streaming from a laptop is not a good choice.
I'll get a Roon or something else ASAP.
