I've been a happy Mac user for the last 25 years for everything from word processing to photography and professional audio.
Try anything that has to do with radio, ham radio, or SDR and you'll feel like the proverbial poor relative. Lots of fun stuff that isn't available for the Mac and whatever is, is second-rate at best.
My RSP2 used to be recognised by gqrx on my Macbook Pro on some days and not on others. No discernible pattern. Sometimes it would help to disconnect and reconnect the receiver a good dozen times until it would eventually be found. Now, both programs (Cubic SDR and gqrx) crash reliably each time I try to start them. At least some predictable behaviour for a change....
On my Mac Mini, gqrx used to work albeit with the occasional stutter until, quite out of the blue, it decided not to recognise the RSP2 any longer. Nothing changed on the computer, no apparent reason. Cubic SDR works but is very prone to crashing and it doesn't include a number of features that make SDR interesting (e.g. spectrum recording).
Running the SDR in a virtualised Windoze on the Mac puts enormous strain on the CPU. Feel the case get hot and hear the CPU fan spin and you'll quickly decide you don't want to fry your expensive Mac just for some fun with a radio.
I hate to say so, but if you really want to get into SDR you'll be better off with Windoze. As they say: 70 billion flies can't be wrong...
Do I sound frustrated? Indeed I am. Can't be bothered with Windoze. My RSP2 will go up on ebay, shortly. Hardly used, one careful owner.
