Active Speakers for Mac Mini Setup (Dynaudio, KEF)

I am thinking of hooking a set of powered/active speakers to my Mac Mini. I was scouring the iNternet and I came with 2 interesting full range models: Dynaudio Focus 110A & KEF X300A. Anyone has any experience with either? What other peripherals are required to hook these babies up? I know a USB DAC is required as part of an active speaker system. But you can directly connect the KEF to your MacBook or Mac Mini.

I believe the KEF speakers have a built-in DAC, hence why they utilize a USB input. You'll be fine.

I've never heard those dynaudios, but if they're anything close to the BM6A in both sonics and build quality, you'll be a happy camper.

do you have a place you can listen to both? the only important thing is that the speakers sounds good to your ears.
