    You're not going to get much in the $200 range. I'd probably say this is about as "low" as you want to go without ending up with a really cheap sounding setup.. An opinion anyhow:

    Calgary, you seem like a knowledgable fellow...I am having trouble undertanding how i am going to get a mixer output into my computer. Im running a macMini currently. my understanding is this: From the mixer output, I run two 1/4" cables into my m-Audio Firewire solo unbalanced line inputs. Is this correct??? The firewire solo also has an S/PDIF input if that helps any. Anybody with info, please let me know...thanks

    Run the mixer outs to the line in's on your m-audio.

    Thanks but I'm just a beginner. I wish I could help but my knowledge of Mac is a big zero. Strictly aesthetically speaking those Mac minis are sure a nifty looking little unit though. :cool:
