Does anyone use a Mini Stack with a 2014 Mini? If so, how do you connect them? Do you sacriface a USB-3 port, or do you use a firewire to thunderbolt converter?

I just purchased a 2014 Mac Mini and a Newertech Ministack and I connected them up with a thunderbolt to firewire adapter from Apple.

Edit. I found the USB connection way faster. Only problem is USB 3 interferes with bluetooth. Had to place the Macmini above and in front of the ministack to get my bluetooth keyboard, mouse and trackpad to keep their connection.
