Which software to get?? Audirvana, Decibel, Pure?
Pure Music works for me and my Mini. As Maplegrovemusic suggests, take advantage of the free trials. 
where have all the remotes gone to?
I'm assuming that you lose remotes, right?My couch eats mine quite readily. Or, I set it down absent-mindedly and can't for the life of me find it again.So, I know have two for my DAC.Doesn't somebody make a locator that you can slap on commonly m... 
Macbook +DAC versus cd player+DAC
Running a headless Mojo Mac Mini into a PS Audio Directstream DAC, playing from iTunes through PureMusic. No CD transport at all. (It works well unless my cable provider craps out, as I just recently had happen.)I'd suggest hanging an external dis...

Bricasti M1 DAC vs PS Audio Direct Stream DAC
From my perspective, I'm not concerned at all with resale value of the Directstream. I don't intend to sell mine, at least not for a long while. 
Bricasti M1 DAC vs PS Audio Direct Stream DAC

USB SQ, what can one expect
Cerrot: "I have nothing to defend. Science proves my position. Audio should not be transmitted in packets. pretty simple from where I sit."Not to pick nits, sir, but you DO have something to defend: Your position, which is stated so clearly in the... 
Absolute top tier DAC for standard res Redbook CD
I should add that I chose the OWC drive because it is very quiet. Others I've tried, even from OWC, have been unacceptably loud. Be sure to listen for yourself, or check noise ratings or reviews. Some disk fans sound like background static when yo...
