New screen for Mac Studio, or possibly keep old one?


Staff member
I am awaiting delivery of a Mac Studio, and need to consider what options there are wrt a screen. I have a now very old 30" Apple Cinema Display which has been great and which I would love to keep using. It has a dual DVI connection. Does anyone know if or how this may be succesfully connected (via TB or HDMI) to a Mac Studio)? Are there any adapters known to work?

Failing that, I am looking for recommendations for a new screen. It should be 30-32" (more than 32" would cause problems with the placement of my studio speakers). It should be flat - a large curved surface between the speakers could be an acoustic nightmare. I expect a resolution of 4 K would be about as high as I would need to go. I would prefer not to spend more than 1000 Euro.

Thanks in advance for any tips or advice!

kind regards



To support the option of keeping the current Apple display in service:
Currently, I'm using a 24" Dell Ultrasharp monitor I acquired in 2014.
Connections: Dell monitor (DVI?) to Apple HDMI adapter to the HDMI port on my M1 Mini.

Over the years, I've had good luck finding X to Y adapters that have worked as expected.
