The dongle as a dongle concept is a good one. This was mentioned when the Micro came out. I was going to peddle this thing but think I'm just going to toss it in the laptop case for those times when quality is better compactness. Its not like it weighs a lot or takes up a lot of space.

I wasn't surprised that sounded better but I was pleasantly pleased at how much better it did sound.

I was wondering how the sound on the newer unibody Macs stood up. Or a PC. I think the advantage on a PC would be the fact you wouldn't need to run ASIO4ALL just to edit in PT
