    Default Audio10 snafu

    Looks like its no longer USB powered. Not sure if I want it now, since I like to keep my setup simple.

    "Power Supply Via included 9V 1200mA power plug. TRAKTOR AUDIO 10 will only work with Power Supply connected."

    There's only so much power you can take from USB unfortunately. Plus you might need power for the 'Thru' mode when you haven't got a laptop plugged in, not sure

    It's almost looking like the older videocards, that needed an external power supply too.

    I find it a bit odd...

    I guess, but I dont need a thru option I just want the extra input and output. Maybe they could have added a firewire option for the mac users.

    Maybe, unfortunately Apple torpedoed firewire when they left it off some Mac models

    Wonder if it'll work without external power if you're not using all of the features? From listening and reading all the stuff it looks like they're really pushing the 10 to be a standard install in clubs so you won't have to worry about plugging it in. Of course it will take some time before that happens.

    hmm...do you think clubs would go for A10 over SL4 if they only wanted to choose one? SL4 has a big advantage with 2 usbs.

    Depends if the club wants to cater for Traktor DJs i guess.
    With more DJs coming thru the ranks with Traktor, clubs need Audio 6/8/10s installed.

    What I can make up from the page, you really need to plug in the power.

    PSU is mandatory for the A10 but optional for the A6.
