Mitch I second Grannyring. You can send your mac to Mojo Audio and they will optimize the software on it. They also sell optimized mac minis, external power supplies and internal filters. I did some shopping and research before I decided on Mojo and am pleased with the service. They also have a good website lots of info. http://www.mojo-audio.com and am very pleased with the sound.
Matt Reise is one of my distributors and has done some great demos of the mods we offer for the Mac Mini.
The Paul Hynes supply and Mojo Supply are both great upgrades for the Mac Mini. Anyone who owns a mini really needs to consider the upgrade.
The upgrades we offer at Core:
(All upgrades offered Turnkey or in kit form. Kits ship same or next day, turnkey is about 5 days if we have to order a computer). We have released both new power supplies and several new upgrades in the last few months that are worth looking at.
We will have a video for installing the kit on the website in about two weeks.
To the upgrades:
1. Two levels of power supply
2. Three levels of Internal filter
3. logic board and component level shielding
4. Three Levels of DC Cable
5. Thunderbolt-PCIe Expansion upgrades for sound cards, PCIeSSDs and graphics cards with dedicated power supply
6. Windows Installation where we remove 192 services and 30 registry keys for a total reduction of 1.5GB prior to installation
7. Stillpoints Ultra 5 anti-vibration Feet.
It's a very high value upgrade and offers tremendous levels of performance. You can't go wrong with any of the power supplies or upgrades you choose, they are all a big upgrade to the stock mac mini.
Hope that helps.

I have Mojo's upgraded mini and external power supply. I am new to computer
audio and things have been going slowly (wi fi problems). Ben, owner of Mojo,
extends exemplary customer service and has bent over backwards to assist this
computer illiterate customer. His generosity is boundless and above and beyond.
Wondering why a high end power supply makes any difference assuming one is using a USB-SPDIF converter which runs on a dedicated power supply or battery like some high end models do these days. I always thought the only thing that benefits from clean power is the digital output circuitry and clock but maybe I'm wrong??
Just started using a 2009 mini as a music transport and would like to tweak it a bit.
Glad to hear someone report on the Clones product... I was thinking about trying it myself, as it seems to be a very straightforward product. I've never been convinced that the technological advances in some of the other (more expensive) options are really necessary, especially from a simple cost-reward perspective.
Why using PSU from clones
Since there is no smps no big filters there is more space in the mac mini which help for cooling.
Since I bought the PSU I disconnected the fan, and I'm using my mac mini only as music server with iTunes and Audirvana and no other apps, my music is stored in external HDD and I'm using a 64 Gb SSD for the OSx
I monitored the temp and it's never exceeding 65°C.
so no more vibration!
Not forgetting the Item Audio Mac Mini AP Edition mod, which not only predates all other Mac Mini mods, but also goes a bit further than all the rest: three optional power supplies, passive cooling, SATA filters, several drive options, RF absorption, case damping and OS tweaks. An earlier iteration was given a 5-star review in HiFi World back in 2010.
