Mac mini usb to DAC

geldermangelderman Members Posts: 2

Hi I’m new to plex and installed it on my Mac mini as server. Movies work great for me streaming to Apple TV or chromecast. But I’m an audiophile and have flac files 24bit. I’m using audirvana on my Mac. The software connects to my external dac via usb directly and it’s bitperfect.
I can not find out how to play my files via usb to my dac. In my remote app I can only see the chromecast. I also installed the media player on the Mac mini but I cannot find any option to select my usb dac. Is that correct? And is plex not for audiophile users?

    Okay I found some more info. I’ve installed on the Mac mini also the player and in full screen mode I could select my usb dac connected to my Mac mini. Even use the exclusive mode. That’s everything I need!
