Mourning Apple's war against sockets? The 2018 Mac mini should be your first port of call


mini TOSLINK gone?

When I looked at it, the specs seem to imply that the combination headphone/microphone/mini-toslink port is now just a headphone/microphone port. That means my only option for digital audio output may be the HDMI port, which is a lot harder to split into two channels to send into both zone A and zone B of my stereo system.

I like several aspects of the unit, but that item does concern me if confirmed.

Of course, my late 2014 mac mini shows no sign of needing replacement any year soon, so by the time I do replace it, Apple may have another unit out, and my (already ten year old) stereo may be ready for a replacement as well.
