Analog Audio i/o is BACK

Posted:
in Current Mac Hardware edited January 2014
Notice that Apple added an ANALOG headphone jack on the front and VERY QUIET (greater than 100 db) ANALOG Audio i/o and Apple Pro Speaker 90 db analog OUT to the rear. THAT is a VAST improvement over the NO analog AUDIO PORT QuickSilvers.



How'd day do dat?!



What a great improvement for AUDIO folks!



I'm getting more excited after reading the 29 page Technical Overview PDF found on Apple's PowerMac page.

    Whew. I did NOT want to buy a separate device just to hook up my PlainTalk microphone... Though I have a Dual GHz from January...

    Thank you Apple for wising up and realizing that USB is not going to revolutionize Audio.

    Seriously what about mLan though? Is that stalled? It would be cool to have power, MIDI, sound, data, networking, all available with FireWire (preferably Gigawire )

    No. The much awaited <a href="http://www.presonus.com/html/products/firestation.html"; target="_blank">Presonus FIREstation</a>is due out anyday. Interesting enough mLAN currently only support 200MBps of the possible 400Mbps. Thats not a suprise because midi doesn't take up much data and Audio is generally small as well compared to Video.
