Ok i have decided to move to a mac soon and i was just wondering about my Creative 7.1 speakers which is currently hooked up to the creative x-fi card.

Question is, can i put the x-fi card into a imac or mac pro??

If not is there anyway to hook up my speakers to a imac or any mac for that matter ??

Thanks in advance

the iMac, Mac Pro, Macbook, and Macbook Pro all have optical outs so you could connect a 5.1 system with the digital out. As for 7.1, i'm not sure, but I'm pretty sure you can't install the X-Fi card into Mac or any other sound card for that matter that doesn't say that it is Mac compatible or OS X compatible.

If your concerned about sound quality though, trust me, whatever my iMac uses sounds fantastic for audio quality through a 4.1 Klipsch system.
