    Audio stutters with USB Dacs on Macbook M1 Pro

    Mea culpa. I've done further testing and the "bit-perfect tests keep failing" in my Apple MacBook Air M1 setup simply have been solved swapping the USB cable with one of 2 meter. Until now I've tested with cables 3 or 5 meter long that seem reputable (Supra Excalibur or TE Connectivity, all...
