    Is the audio port on the rMBP just a headset? I thought somewhere I saw that it's a dual linein - headset port?

    Yeah I thought so - why remove such a vital port from a professional computer?

    Because they are a company and saving 50 cents on a port increases their margins.

    For Professional use, HDMI/TB provide much larger bandwidth for digital sound. An adapter or DAC can fix ur need.

    However, usually the line-in/line-out transform can be achieved by software.
