My Saffire interface just died and I am looking for audio solutions other than firewire or even usb because I am now using a Retina MacBook which has HDMI. I am running 5 M-Audio speakers powered from a subwoofer.


Is anyone outputting audio through this - I want to monitor 5.1 surround? Instead of buying a new usb interface I could get a tv style receiver for HDMI and output to my speakers that way. Could be good enough to mix and monitor.


USB audio interfaces with 6 outputs are fairly expensive so this would save some bucks.

MacBook Pro (Retina, Mid 2012), OS X Mountain Lion (10.8.2), 27inch Apple thunderbolt display
