Does the "old" MacBook Pro have a Toslink?

    Hello. I'd like to drive an external digital to analogue converter using a Toslink rather than the USB port, if possible. According to the manual, my MacBook Pro (early 2008) has an “Audio line in/optical digital audio in port." Is this the same thing as a Toslink out? Have people here used this port to drive external DAC's?

    (I called AppleCare, but the rep didn't seem to understand the difference between digital and analogue, so I didn't really trust the answer.)

    Thanks,
    Chris

    Never mind, found the answer. The AppleCare tech was wrong, BTW.
