I am thinking of buying a Mac Mini to use as an audio server but am not completely clear with regards to options as to how to get my files on to it.
I have a MacBook Pro with an optical drive. Can I use screen sharing and remote disc to access the mac Mini through the MB Pro, using the optical drive in the Pro to rip CDs remotely to the Mini?
basic setup: PC to DAC to AMP I have two options for every component eg 2 AMPs, 2 external DACs. Only one PC tho. 1 of the DACs has a SOUNDBLASTER EXTERNAL BOX. I have a sound problem. Awful sound, loses a channel etc.
If I use headphones its the same - if i press the DIRECT button it sounds OK (sometimes not great but other times fine)- tho i think i am right in saying it then comes out in mono. OK,. so that means that the problem is in the source right?
Have just bought a HP Wireless Audio kit and was wondering if anyone else has one and what they think?I looked at Apple Airport and Apple TV but dont really use ITunes so much now and they are rather expensive for the functionality i needwhich is pretty much decent wireless sound from my laptop to the hifi. Anyway i saw one of these HP thing reduced from 70 odd quid to 25 on Amazone and it seemed worth a punt. It arrived today, is easy to set up and to my ears sounds vastly better than the cable from headphone to aux input in my amp that i was using.
I am thinking about replacing my Yamaha hs8 with the sonos play 1 that i just have heard in hifiklubben (hifi club) in Denmark, the play 5 had more bass, more warm sound, but i didn't miss anything with the play 1, no bright sound and i wasn't thinking about the bass before i heard sonos play 5 that has build in subwoofer.
Has anyone some experience with the sonus play and how music is comming out of the speakers, what you need, if it will work with all routers,modems.

What i would like to do is create screencasts ucing a screen capture software and a microphone, edit them to filter out the buzz ( noise ), and convert them into mp4 file.
Would anyone recommend a good codec to use, and a handy software to do the noise cancellation?

My son has been given his mum's old iPhone (4s) and has tried to hook it up to iTunes. He says it recognises his phone but he can't sync it. I don't use iTunes so I can't help him. Anyone got any idea what he should do please?
