Saffire Pro + new iMac = much joyous noise. I even went out and got a FW800 - 400 cable in case of problems. Worked like a charm. Enough to convince me to look into a Mac Pro ....

Hmmm..

I use a range of different Macs... and My Saffire Pros work with all of them..

likewise I've not had any real troubles with MOTU firewire devices, or RME firefaces....

A much more elegant response than the one that came to my mind. Anyway, putting such spherical considerations aside, I'd be interested to hear why Mr David thinks this to be the case, or do we have a series of bridge-dwellers slowly creeping onto the forum?
