    Is it possible to get a higher quality sound card for the MacBook Pro that fits in the card slot?

    I know they probably exist but will they work on Mac OSX?

    Apogee recently released a sound card created specifically for the MBPs ExpressCard slot. It's ghastly expensive, though, and it's meant to go along with the rest of their high-end audioware.

    but to answer your question, yes, it does work in OSX.

    The cheap $6 usb sound card I got off ebay works with my imac without any drivers. Its not higher quality but it works.
    So I guess most/any usb cards with work with OSX.
