OSX Lion - Mini-Me/Mini-DAC Firewire or Rosetta 800 with XFirewire

Anyone try an Apogee Mini-Me or Mini-DAC with firewire on OSX Lion yet? No word on Apogee's site as to whether it's supported.

What about a Rosetta 800 with Xfirewire card? Apogee's site just says "to be announced" for xfirewire compatibility.

Have you spoken to Apogee?

I was told by them the x-FW card will work as it simply utilises Apples coreaudio driver. Same goes with the old firewire HD-series card for the AD8000/2Trak.

If you can simply plug the mini-me or mini-dac into a mac without having to install drivers to use it, it should work fine under Lion. The Ensemble & Duet's are slightly different as Apogee write the drivers for them (so I am lead to believe).
