that can be used on the new MBA that are a little better than the built-ins? Since there is no jack other than the headphone jack, I think I may be able to answer my own question! But, on the other hand... :confused:

This Twelve South BassJump looks pretty cool. And it plugs in via USB. $69

+1 on the Logitech USB Speakers. I use them at work, easy to plug into a multi port USB hub, 15 bucks or so. If I want high quality, I pop over to my headphones.

What is your setup and use-case scenario?

I'm personally looking at a completely wireless solution, -an Airplay speaker, so I can stream from my MBA and my iPhone wherever I am in the house.

This site has a good roundup:

Most are too much $$$ for me, but the iHome model I may bite on. Personally, I need to get a real set of speakers since I love music. I can't stand USB speakers and crap like that.

I have a Bose setup that I was using with my MBP before I just got the MBA. They work great with the MBA.
