3.0GHz Dual-Core Intel Core i7 (Turbo Boost up to 3.5GHz)
8GB 1600MHz LPDDR3 SDRAM
256GB PCIe-based Flash Storage
Comes with all of the original parts to change back to stock at any time.
Spent $1507 US (tax in) on new unit plus mod.
Selling to get a music server with storage (decided to get rid of NAS)
ABOUT MMK UPGRADE
The MMK converts a Mac mini to operate on external 12V DC power by replacing the computer's stock switch-mode power supply with a circuit board that fits perfectly in the space vacated by the SMPS. There is no soldering and no cutting of wires required, the procedure is completely reversible, and a toolkit with detailed instructions is provided. The MMK also provides a carefully chosen amount of filtering (a pile of filter caps after a regulated external supply is not good for performance).
Conversion of a Mac mini to accept DC power is not new, and pairing the computer with a high quality external linear power supply is one of the best upgrades you can perform on this popular computer. So why choose the UpTone MMK? Because it includes the world's first and only linear fan controller circuit for Macintosh computers.
A sample from one of the many e-mails we receive about the listening results after MMK installation:
Received the MMK and installed it right away tonight.
And.. It's really amazing! I was already quite happy with the JS2, but this really takes it to the next level.
I've mentioned before that the Weiss is extremely sensitive to power and the incoming signal.
But when the signal is right, absolute magic comes out.
With the fan controller installed, everything is so much better.
I actually didn't want to stop listening but I felt I had to email you.
Blacker backgrounds, better dynamics, and voices are so realistic it's almost scary!
Absolutely the best I've ever heard from my system. No trade-offs, better on every level.
Consider me a very happy customer!
I'd highly recommend this to any Mac Mini user.
Many thanks, best regards,
