Today's Worthless Purchase
Posted by: Thrift Store Scott

A pair of Apple Pro speakers in near-excellent condition- $5.

They're functionally worthless to me because I don't have a single Mac with the appropriate speaker jack, but they sure are pretty. I guess for now I'll just consider them "art".

I may be wrong but I think the iMic will allow you to use these with any Mac through the USB port. This one on eBay is $1 right now.

You're thinking of the iFire:

The Griffin PowerWave will also power the Apple Pro Speakers and is often cheaper than the iFire because people don't realize this (but it also isn't as elegant a solution as the iFire).

Back in the day, I sold two iFires for $150 each after they were discontinued. I'd bought them for $40 each.

Are they the one that work with the G4 Cube? If so, I may be interested.

They'll also work with G4 iMacs (my 17" 1ghz came with them back in the day).

They won't work with the Cube.

The Cube uses similar looking speakers, but I think the amp was inline (and external to the Cube) and connects via USB.

I didn't know they worked with the MDD!

This is correct, I have a set for my Cube.
