There are many things that you can do to make your 2010 Mac Mini sound extremely good. 1st thing I would do is replace the stock internal hard drive with a 40gig SSD drive. On the internal SSD drive only keep the operating system and the music players you plan on using. Next Go to this link http://www.ultrafi.biz and download the free Optimization Guide for Apple OS X. Next get an external hard drive. The Oyen digital enclosure here at this link is the best I have heard in my system; http://oyendigital.com/hard-drives/store/CB3-54-1000-BK.html This is where you will store your music files. Music Rippers are also very important the one I like the best is XLD. Use XLD to rip your music to your hard drive and make sure you rip your music in the AIF format instead of FLAC and or MP 3 You should also address the power cord. One little tweak that yields nice results and cheap, is to listen to the mac mini with flipping the plug over at the wall until you find the which sounds best. I would pay close attention to the optimization guide.
