I've got a Digi 002.  I do alot of 78's to CD.

I've got an Esoteric Sound turntable

I go into my dbx 386 Dual vacum tube preamp with digital outs(a gredat 
piece for the $) into my 002, which is connected by firewire to my G5

ProTools 6.2 in Panther works great !

AND: I'm lovin' Garage Band

Does anyone know what you can connect to the digital ins on the G5???

This is a great piece of gear for the money
