pin number on mini's firewire port?

in Genius Bar edited January 2014
i hope some of you can help me there is an audio interface i want to buy and use with my mac mini, but it NEEDS to have a 6pin firewire... but on checking the manual for the mini i cant find this info...

so, is the firewire on the mac mini a 6 pin on or not??

and on trying the search option with "firewire 6 pin Mac mini" i got

:The search term you specified (6) is under the minimum word length (3) and therefore will not be found. Please make this term longer.

now THATS just backwards

Much thanks

    6 pin refers to having the firewire port supply the power for the device. The mini firewire port does provide power, page 38 of the mini manual.
