300 – Line In Audio Adapter Compatibility
The Biopac Science Lab MP40 unit connects to the computer via Line-In.
Important—Audio line in is not the same as headphones.
If a computer does not have a built-in Line-In jack, an external audio adapter can be used.
BIOPAC Systems, Inc. has reviewed five external sound adapters. All of the reviewed adapters are compatible with the MP40 unit, but their ease of use and signal quality vary. The reviewed audio adapters have the following specifications in common:
Interface with a computer via USB port
Retail for approximately $70.00 or less
Plug and play with default drivers on Microsoft OS/Mac OS and thus do not require an installation procedure or proprietary driver.
Performance differences are detailed here to help users make an informed choice based on their needs.
