i was getting a Xitel usb connector that would connect my tibook with my minidisc, but on the Xitel site they say: "please note: Mac OSX does not support USB audio at this point, therefore no USB audio device such as the DG2 will be supported by OSX until Apple upgrades OSX" are Xitel talking about a pre x.1.3.1 version or is it still like this? from what i heard mac os is supposed to detect any usb in/out audio connected... no? secondly i wonder what is a cheap but good way to get audio from, like a turntable or something into a tibook? there is no audio in and i don't know about buying an external soundcard, is there a connector like the Xitel for minidisc that i can just connect my preamp to? yeh-yeh, i'm an amateur in a tutu.
