Prism Sound in Cambridge, UK, announces that after extensive testing on the latest Mac OS X Lion 10.7.2 operating system, the Sonnet Thunderbolt Adapter will allow Prism Sound FireWire interface users to maintain the same software control and functionality they currently receive through the FireWire 800 and 400 connection. Any Apple Mac with the new Thunderbolt connection (currently the MacBook Air, MacBook Pro, iMac, and Mac Mini) will be able to connect to Prism Sound’s Orpheus and FireWire ADA-8XR, including the latest Mac Book Air laptops, which previously lacked any connection above USB 2 speed.
The recent addition of the new Thunderbolt I/O connection to Apple Mac computers means data can be transferred faster than ever—10 Gbps of bidirectional throughput plus a separate display bus.
Lightning-fast speed and huge bandwidth has meant Thunderbolt can accommodate nearly any existing connection to a variety of external devices with the necessary adapter, including Prism Sound FireWire audio interfaces Orpheus and ADA-8XR.
MacBook Pro, iMac, and Mac Mini users will benefit from an extra bus through the Thunderbolt connection, meaning that external hard drives and other FireWire devices can be used simultaneously with the Prism Sound Orpheus and ADA-8XR FireWire interfaces.
