    hello


    I need a good soundcard for my MACPRO 8core , the sound from the MACPRO sounds SUCKS and has no settings (Realtek HD - with optical output). I want to be compatible OSX as well as Vista x64.

    Can be internal or external, I do not have preferences ... but i need a good sound

    THX.

    To my knowledge, there are no sound cards compatible with OS X.

    Just plug something into the optical or analogue audio jacks.

    M-audio is on their way,RME's have them for a longtime.Actully most of
    "PRO" cards have all mainstream system (include 64bit system) support.

    I've been waiting for RME to ship the HDSPe AIO for some time. Sites are finally taking pre-orders, but at $800USD, it isn't for the faint of heart. :p

    Hi,

    I would go for the MOTU UltraLite if you nee a smart, slim, highquality-interface, with really good quality drivers for both Mac OS X and VISTA; I use the 828 MK II and the mkIII and both work like a charm on Win and Mac... best Sound interfaces IMHO.

    best,
    mark

    Really? Umm.... How about the MOTU HD192 Core PCIE Audio Interface? Supports 12 Channel 24/192, alternatively if you need more flexibility there's always digidesign. Wait... did you mean consumer toys?

    As much as I loathe Creative as a company, I do wish they'd make Mac drivers for their sound cards.

    I've heard/read reports that Creative were going to launch Mac drivers some time ago, but as of yet, never seen them. :(

    Vapor ware strikes again. :rolleyes:
    At this point, I'll believe it when I actually see it. ;)

    Indeed, indeed. Same with the Radeon 4870, unfortunately.
