Looking to transfer some of my old DATs and MDs to my iMac. Anyone have a recommendation for a USB interface with Coax and Optical inputs compatible with macOS for under $100.

How recent an IMac? Older ones have a headset & S/PDIF connector.

It's a new 5k iMac which I don't think has anything like that.  I forgot some macs had those combo Optical/headphone ports. I'll check out my wife's old MacBook Pro. Thanks for the suggestion.

I have an older mac mini that has the port and is very convenient. I moved to using a Zoom U-44 so I could use a more contemporary Mac but its more than $100

Ohh. That looks nice. I am checking the laptop I have later today. If that doesn't work out this thing looks perfect. Thanks for the link.
