pass audio through to the new 13"?
DVI does not carry audio. HDMI might.
according to the the news that's going around the new ones will carry audio, but with a suitable dvi to hdmi adapter, by who or when these adapters will be available is not known .
DVI cannot support audio by its own nature. HDMI does, but it depends on whether Apple enabled that via HDMI cable. I'm waiting to know of that too. Can someone confirm?
agrhhh, don't want the HDMI one lols. i want the offical apple stuff to look cooler(just somethin' i'd prefer >_>.) oh well looks like i have to get those audio stuff too. thanks guys
The above poster is right that DVI will not carry audio; however the Mini DisplayPort found on the macs will easily convert not only to DVI, but also HDMI and as of this new release, if you get an HDMI adapter, it will in fact play audio. You can buy a mini displayport to HDMI adapter or cable from monoprice.com, amazon.com, or even the one in the use in the article I've linked below. This is the one that I've purchased. Notice it says it will carry audio as long as the device supports it, this disclaimer is because the previous generation macbook and macbook pro's did not support audio over the mini displayport. However the new ones do.
