    you dont find things like "ESP" on racing cars
    line in; no preamp.
    anyway, it should be in the manual what and whatnot it supports...

    then, check in the audio/midi setup input settings

    That will most definatly work right off the bat. Its not recognized as a "Speedlink" adapter, but it works 100% with builtin drivers.

    I think Ploki is saying to check the specs on your mic and on your Mac to make sure you actually need that USB thingy.

    But I think you're right - if indeed your mic needs power. Cheapy mics are 50/50 - some need it some don't and some have a switch. :D Mac Pro and just about no computer on the market supplies this - so you have to buy an interface. Either an audio interface or something like you're looking at there.
