Audio Midi - Output Not Supported...

Recommended Posts

Hi folks - well the shiny new macbook is sounding great through optical out via airport express and direct into my DAC...but...wheres all this stuff about 24bit/96khz I hear about setting up in Audio Midi? I just get "Output is not supported" with no option of choosing anything other than "Built in output" - am I missing something? Have trawled the Apply forums but it seems audio out and what it does is something of a mystery over there!! Half of them have lost audio altogether and don't know how to get it back - thought the Mac was easier than a Windows PC ;-)

 

No digs intended, having great fun just thought I had read everything I needed to know 'before' going Mac but seems you need to actually have one in your hands 'before' things really fall into place!

 

Off to Ashley at AVI this morning to see/hear the ADM9.1's, will report back...oops better jump in shower :-)

 

*** UPDATE *** Ah found it!! If I click on Properties for... I can get to play with outputs instead of inputs!! But it's a bit counter intuitive to then put 'Input not supported' in that bit of the dialogue - but I get what it means now... must get a book on OS X :-)

Hi GazD - have visitors down for the week so haven't much time to contribute! Yes the ADM's were impressive, regardless of the price point I think. Looking forward to getting some here to play with in my own room - in Ashley's sitting room they were extremely fast and dynamic. Very articulate. They also sounded a lot bigger than they looked! I very much like the idea of having the whole kit in the box, a la' Meridian - but I never really found the DSP range to my liking, always seemed, well a bit digital! Anyway, I think the last time I looked at a used pair of DSP5000's they were £4k or so!

 

As an aside I am really enjoying the sound from my MacBook on optical out through my Meridian DAC, I think it is just a little more involving than the AX - but no serious listening done yet and I am probably talking rubbish! :-)
