Is the audio out port on the MBPR also mini-Toslink compatible?
According to iFixIt, no. It is a standard headphone jack. Someone could make a small Thunderbolt adapter to SPDIF and also a recently announced dock from Sunix will have SPDIF from Thunderbolt.
There are also cheapo USB to SPDIF but since they probably show up as a USB device, it would likely be doing some processing to the signal, I think?
Just an update since the info was wrong before -- TUAW confirmed the headphone out does have SPIDF / toslink still. It hasn't been removed.
Would even be greater if you can give a link
.... so does it have one or not
Umm, both the link and the image said very clearly that it does.
Thx for the link, Hoff.
But here is the thing: if this sceenshot is from a Retina MBP, how come it has a firewire & Ethernet Card hardware?
Anyone can write and post anything on the internet bro one site said it did the other says it doesn't.... both reputable.
Has anyone tried or can verify if sound works via toslink cable ?
It's just listed there. If you click it I'm sure it'll say something to the effect of "This computer does not have an Ethernet Card".
Those are categories on the left. They do not mean that the system is equipped. Under ATA my MBP says
I would be a happy guy if it is still there.
It has HDMI out listed right under the SPDIF.
The Tech Specs list for the computer on Apple's site say it does.
Support for Apple iPhone headset with remote and microphone
Support for audio line out"
Edit: Never mind. Confused this with referring to S/PDIF out.
