Hi guys,

OK, here's the setup:

Macbook>TADAC>pre.

The macbook's headphone jack doubles as a mini-toslink output. My question is....is there a difference in the quality of signal coming out of that fiber optic wire? Apple has a small wireless device called Airport Express that has the same mini-toslink output. I can wirelessly send iTunes to the Airport Express and then from there to the dac. This would save me from plugging the cord in and out all the time.

The airport express is pretty cheap, and I'm just wondering if I will be sacrificing anything. Is there anyway it could add to the noise floor? I'm thinking it should be the exact same signal as what's coming from the macbook.

Thoughts?

Interesting, thanks.

That Stereophile link explains the delay I'm getting with it then. It truly is handy, but a little buggy so far.
