Audio Research has released an update kit for its DAC8 to make it 'Apple-friendly' and completely compatible with all current Apple operating systems.

Available now, the update includes a new board, wires, connectors and internal firmware updates that makes the Audio Research DAC8 compatible with all current Apple operating systems. If you are currently using an older Apple laptop or Mac Mini with your DAC8, this update will be necessary for the DAC8 to work properly with a newer Apple product. In Australia, the update is priced at $1,499 + labour (and, if required, freight), 

If you are interested in having your DAC8 updated, please contact your Audio Research dealer or the Australian distributor, Synergy Audio Visual.
