    Monitor for a dining area wall

    My elderly parents have an old, Intel 13-inch MacBook Pro, which I'm hoping we can get replaced with an Apple Silicon laptop some time in 2024. They no longer have cable or satellite TV. They frequently turn to YouTube for news, information (how-to) and entertainment. The laptop's speakers...

    Question about hooking up multiple mics to a MacBook

    FCP - Synced Audio...

    Hello! I'm noticing that when I sync a couple of video (bad audio) clips with an audio (good audio) clip that FCP uses the bad audio when creating the synced clip. What do I need to do to make sure that FCP is using the good audio instead of the bad (video) audio? Thanks in advance! ~Andrew

    How do I listen to music on my own speakers?

    We have a set of stereo speakers, pre-amplifier, and amplifier that produce relatively high-quality sound. We'd like to listen to music that is in iTunes in this set-up. Apple used to make a little white device (a little larger than a charger for an old MBP) that I think was a router and it...

    No sound but speakers detected

    Trying to fix a 2019 MacBook Air for a client. No sound, not even a startup chime. Internal speakers are connected and shown as an output device. My initial suspicion was a conflict with SoundFlower, which didn't appear to be installed but was listed as an output device. Manually removed all...
