The current Macbook Pro 13" (early 2015 model with i7-5557U) is faster than the latest available Mac Mini (late 2014 model with i7-4578U). On paper the Mac Mini (late 2012 model i7-3720QM) is faster and more easy to upgrade (ram + hard drive) but it's probably not available for purchase any more.

You can indeed increase the amount of VRAM in certain Apple models. In fact, you have already done that for 1 or 2 times. 2012 Mac Mini 4GB allocated 768MB to VRAM in it's original release state. Upgrading the RAM back in 2012 to 8GB would have given you 1024MB. Keeping the RAM at 4GB but upgrading to OSX 10.9 would also resulted in 1024MB. Following your ...

VRAM is only included on dedicated graphics cards. On other computers (such as the Mac mini), the OS reserves a portion of RAM for use with an integrated graphics processor. There's no way to adjust this. Some Macs will adjust the amount of VRAM they use dynamically, but there's still a maximum amount it will use, and you can't change that.

The reason is that since you use a digital link (the same behaviour is exhibited when you use the optic interface) the modulation must a high as possible to get the best sound quality possible. This is because when lowering the modulation you reduce the amount of significant bits that "describes" the sound : the resolution and dynamic range of the source ...
