    I will have a look at home, I have an app that creates a bootable copy off the operating system, if you have an 8 gig memory stick you can boot the mac with a memory stick and re-install your OS that is quicker than talking it over for hours. This way you can re-install your OS, best is to wipe the disk. do you have the music on a separate HDD?

    I remembered the name it is DiskMaker X you can download that then you download the os from the apple store, start tha app and it will create a bootable usb stick, you start the mac with the alt button, install os x and then try to connect to the dac again.

    Once we've made sense of our world, we wanna go fuck up everybody else's because his or her truth doesn't match mine. But this is the problem. Truth is individual calculation. Which means because we all have different perspectives, there isn't one singular truth, is there?

    I have an iMac running a Beresford DAC into a Rega Brio amp. These are my settings: (I hope this works...the pics are on my desktop)

    Is the volume all the way to the right? (see Pic 1 at bottom)

    Al pop down to a supermarket and buy a replacement rechargeble battery for the dac----an energizer one was about a fiver.

    pop the top off the dac and take the battery with you-a pp3 if memory serves.

    put the lump hammer down and pick up a phillips screw driver and take the lid off and get the cheap wee chinese shitter battery out.

    When you install the new battery and service resumes ye can smash fuck out the wee battery-it will be cathartic!

    STEP AWAY FROM THE HAMMER!

    hope this gets you up and running again....im a computer numpty but have a secret weapon in the shape of the Scottish mafia!

    The troops up here tend to look out for each other-payment in food/cakes/coffee/tea/booze goes a long way.

    Its worth it...a digital set up with a mac/pc/dac is bang for buck unbeatable.

    Let us know how you get on..
