This IS a Windows device. It will work with MacOS (I am using it with my mac at the moment), but you won't get the benefits and software features. With MacOS you definitely can use the input and output just fine (meaning the DAC is doing its job) and the volume knob works nicely. However, all the EPOS DSP functions (which is a software download) is exclusive to Windows (because they don't make a mac version of the software). The button for activating the DSP therefore is functionless on Mac (although I suppose you could program it with some meta-tools, but nevertheless, you won't get any of the EPOS specific DSP functions, which is kind of half of the purpose for the device). In summary: Mac and Windows, both work perfectly fine as a USB dac for input and output; if you want the array of great EPOS DSP functions, then you would need to use Windows. (I only have this because someone threw it in with a used headphone purchase I made. I am not a gamer, so I don't really care, in fact I kind of like using the volume knob over keyboard buttons, but I would imagine most people would be buying this for the DSP gaming function as well). Perhaps EPOS will make a mac compatible app for it someday, but being it uses MINI-(not even micro-)USB I think that ship has sailed.
