Griffin FireWave Shipping

While Windows listeners have had surround sound decoding in sound cards for some time, such hardware is rare for Mac users. This situation changes now that the long-awaited FireWave decoder has begun shipping, Griffin Technology announced today. Announced in 2005, the FireWave can natively process Dolby Digital or Pro Logic II signals from supporting programs in OS X, such as DVD Player or games that support the OpenAL sound format (including Unreal Tournament 2004 and World of Warcraft). Other audio that requires four to six separate channels can be routed as well. The device connects through a 6-pin FireWire cable (with a pass-through port for other FireWire devices) and does not require any power of its own, though speakers require their own power supply. FireWave ships for $100 and requires MacOS X Panther or later.
