Audio input solutions for mac Mini

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
Hey everyone I'm planning to get a mac mini the first half of this year. But I noticed it doesn't have a line-in or mic jack on it. Kind of odd. As I cut video and sometimes need to record audio from tape decks, minidiscs and my mixer I need a way to get audio into this thing.

I'm thinking there has to be a good USB2.0 solution right? I don't want to use firewire since I'll have to use that for an external harddrive and to hook up my miniDV camera (which is another question in itself).

I don't want something terribly expensive. So if anyone can give me a cheap solution($30 or less) and then maybe a sub $200 solution which has XLR jacks that would be cool. I prefer line -in rather then a mic in as I have a mixer.

Thanks

Apple sells such a device in their stores. It's called the MobilePre USB and it's made by M-Audio. 2 XLR inputs.
