Ok, I set up the Dell Windows 7 laptop as the server for the Tranquility SE DAC using iTunes as the playback software, and it was as though the oxygen was sucked out of the soul of the system. Yeah, I tried different USB cords, but I couldn't hear a difference. The whole system just went flat, no depth, no point sourcing, no ghostly instrumentation: just flat, dry and soul-less.
I hooked the Tranquility back on to the MacMini 2010 and returned to bliss.
I can truly understand how the difference between USB cords cannot be perceived when using a laptop.
Thanks for the opportunity. I would have never tried this otherwise. It was ugly but worth knowing what I have.
