Be aware of toslink connections to the mac on 10.6 and 10.7 I have been having serious issues using monitoring with this setup. There seems to be a bug in OSX syncing to Toslink and using aggregate devices. Audio on the headphone aoutput will get progrssively distorted and fail completely after a few minutes of recording. Neither protools 9 nor 10 will work with this setup. Could reproduce the same problem with different generations of mac minis and laptops.

It was very handy for about two months until the zoom-type recorders came out... Recorded just about an a hour and a half of 16 bit 44.1 audio, or about 50 hours compressed..
