…Griffin’s FireWave brings surround sound to your Mac?

FireWave Surround Sound

Griffin has released the FireWave, an external 5.1 surround sound processing system just for Mac computers. Using a FireWire cable to both connect to your computer and draw power from your computer, the FireWave doesn’t clutter your desk with extra cables or require you to carry around an extra power supply. There is even an extra FireWire port in the back so you can daisy chain another FireWire device to it and not loose your port. The built in Dolby Digital processor brings true surround sound to your gaming, iTunes, and DVD player. Technical specifications are as follows:

  • Audio Ports: 3 – 1/8″ (3.5mm) stereo minijacks (Left/Right, Center/Subwoofer, Left Surround/Right Surround)
  • FireWire Ports: 2
  • Supported Audio Formats: Dolby Digital, Dolby Pro Logic II
  • Additional audio configurations are supported through Mac OS X’s Audio MIDI Setup utility
  • Frequency Response: 20-20,000Hz
  • Line-out voltage: 2Vpp
  • Size: 132mm (5.20”) wide x 77mm (2.83”) deep x 25mm (0.98”) tall
