Hey 'Slingers. Just encountered a tiny weirdness concerning the RR 2160's USB input. I've been using it with a MacBook Pro since I got my 2160, as I did with my previous 2150. Sweet sounds, indeed. But I just got a new MacBook, which no longer has the old USB type A output/connector. Apple has moved to the smaller, reputedly faster USB type C connector. Faster data transfer is better, correct?
Only one problem: When I use an adapter to connect the old USB-A input from the RR2160 to the new MacBook's USB-C output, the music is marred by intermittently faint pops, almost as if I was playing an older LP in fair condition. It's bearable, but also a tad frustrating. I've tried a few different adapters now, thinking quality might be a factor. To no avail. It'd be cool if someone, maybe the Outlaws, could come up with a solution. I really like using my laptop as a source.
This ain't for the underground. This here is for the sun."
