Griffin Technology today announced the new iMic USB audio adapter. “iMic was the original USB audio adapter that enabled Mac and PC users to add stereo input and output to their USB computers that, otherwise, lacked the necessary hardware support,” notes the company. “iMic allows you to connect virtually any microphone or sound input device to your iBook, PowerBook, PowerMac or other Mac or PC systems with a USB port. iMic supports both mic and line level inputs via a selectable switch, as well as a variable level output for connecting speakers or headphones.” The new iMic sis priced at US$39.99 and is scheduled to begin shipping in mid-November.
