Hello all

The new mac OS Sierra will add SIRI among others things, and I do like using Siri on my phone and look forward to doing that with the mini when it is released in a couple months

Simply, I want to have an active microphone in the mac mini and still maintain my excellent external speakers. So plugging a headset into the external slot will not work very well for me.

I just simply want to sit down and say "hey Siri" and have the mac min respond to requests, like the phone.

So am I looking at a USB microphone then? Doesn't have to be studio quality but functional for SIRI and maybe for some later words to writing programs.

Thoughts?

Thanks

Do you have/use a USB webcam on your mini? with a mic in it?
