If you don't want to cut your cable, wait for the MacPac. The P1900 is the best way to go for a Mini.Originally Posted by jholman
Unless you don't drive for a few days or have a weak battery you shouldn't have to worry. There is also an option on the P1900 that will kill the power to the Mini if you haven't turned it on for awhile (72 hours?). And it has a built-in cutoff if the battery drops too low.Im not too concerned about the sleep control, since I have a feeling it would kill my battery and I dont want to chance that at all.
It's not that it's bad (at least on the Intel version), but it's limiting. The Audigy, Firewave, and Sonica are used to provide more control (balance & fade, timing, etc..) than you can get out of just splitting a headphone port. If you are going to run to an Aux-In on an existing Head Unit, then the headphone jack should be sufficient.Also, I have read alot about using audigy USB audio cards, is the mini's onboard really THAT bad? I'm a huge quality nut, so I need to know up front.
Also note the thread I started last week about my Mini not recognising Line Out after it woke from sleep which also apparently happens on the G4 version too. My Sonica (even though I can only use it's headphone jack due to a lack of Intel drivers) doesn't have that issue. So if you don't use a sound card, make sure you can easily get to the port.
