If your MBP is the C2D 2.4 GHz model, what about your MM? Is it the higher spec 2.66 GHz chip? Else, what is the difference between the MM and MBP?
At least now I have better understanding of the situation. Was concerned at first that my i7/2.66 MBP would not do "integer mode".
Wanting to try the Calyx DAC...

My current MM or Macmini being the same C2D chipset as my older MBP  does not support integer mode for Audionirvana, it will show CP overload and hang, so I
will probably buy another updated MM with a more powerful chipset to replace current one when Apple comes out with it.

That version is not out yet, I too am waiting for it.
Currently the only software on OSX you can try integer mode is Audionirvana

I maybe converting my netbook ( Processor is N270 ) to play 24/96. I'd be getting the hiface to convert USB to BNC. Any issues for the processor to play 24/96 or 24/192 ?

I was from the macbook camp, the software that I use is Audirvana, it can change resolution without user intervention. Does this apply for PC as well? What particular software should I be using for bit perfect( freeware if possible )?

Thanks.

Snip3r, u may use Foobar2000 for bit perfect in PC. However, if u need a better one, u need to pay USD50 for J River Media Center.
