It’s not that there’s a lack of speakers that can connect to your Mac, but Orb Audio’s Mini-T Amplifier V2 ($69-$299) expands the range of options you have even further. With the tiny black box—it’s small enough to sit on the foot of your iMac—you can connect standard, non-powered speakers that you might have lying around the house. This newest edition features upgraded hardware and more outputs, as well as a brand-new housing.
Mini-T connects to your Mac via a simple aux cable. You then have left and right channel audio outputs. A subwoofer output has been added, and the amplifier chip has been upgraded. You can use your own speakers, but Orb Audio also offers its own speakers, in a variety of colors, as a separate package.
