External Soundcard


My Mac mini arrives tomorrow to replace my ageing Powerbook that I sold last week. Way Hey!!

I've got a set of 5.1 surround speakers that I want to setup with the Mini. I know this is not possible and I'll require an external USB or Firewire sound card capable of 5.1. I've seen one that I like from Griffin called the Firewave but it's not yet available.

Can anyone recommend an alternative? I've seen plenty but the none say that they are Mac compatible. It also has to be analogue and not digital as the speakers don't have an optical input.
