This thread is completely dedicated to audio solutions for the Audiophile with a Hackint0sh/Hack Pro (whatever you'd like to call it). Essentially, it'd be for those willing to spend the extra investment and not be dependent on On-Board audio on the motherboard. Then again, if you want to go all out, you minus well spend it on the real thing (we can discuss this later). Anyhow, the importance of communication plays a significant role in making anything possible. So without furtherado, let's start sharing our thoughts, suggestions, what we hope to achieve, compataiblity issues, etc...


Let the discussions begin! :)

Based on Technical Specifications, shuold be compatible with current Mac Pro. Anyone have this card? Does it work with OSx86? IF so, works well?

By far one of the best - not quite an apogee but not something to laugh at.

Looks like External interfaces are the way to go for these products?
