Please educate on use of integer mode.
I am using Pure Music on a MAC mini for playback of redbook CDs. THe MAC feed a M2Tech Hiface which feeds a Bryston BDA-1. I wish to optimize Pure Music playback. Am looking for a USB/SPDIF upgrade.
How is PCM data streamed vs. when Integer is not activated?
In this case, the ability to use integer mode in Pure Music is dictated by the USB/SPDIF converter, true? Does the Hiface support integer mode?
Thoughts on having Pure Music upsample vs. use of integer mode and having the DAC do this.
