The USB input on the DacMagic is limited to 16/44.1 (or maybe 24/48; I don't remember exactly) resolution so if you want play 24/96 files you should use a mini-toslink from the MBP headphone jack to one of the DacMagic toslink inputs.
Connect Macbook Pro to DacMagic DAC
What is the best cable option to comnect my Apple Macbook Pro to my DacMagic DAC? The usb cable provided by Cambridge works okay but can't I get better sound using a mini-rca from the Mac's headphone jack and running it into the DAC's Toslink input? Or, is there such a thing as a mini-rca to coaxial spdif cable? What is the best cable you've ever used for this application?
