Optimal Audio Settings in OS X + Windows 7!!!

Hi guys,
I just bought a set of Swan M10 speakers (2.1 style), and I was wondering what settings through OS X and Windows 7 can be done/what you guys recommend for getting the best sound quality out of them?
Have any of you heard of the "perfect equalizer" for iTunes? I use it and it's great.
I'm not an audiophile, but I would like to optimize the playback abilities of my MacBook Pro 13.3" Aluminum laptop.


Thanks,
El Burro

Pick up an external DAC and use the optical out on your laptop.

I don't know why, but Apple insists on using junky analog parts in pretty much all of their products when they label them as "Pro".

One of my favorites is the Sony SDP-EP9ES, currently they go for ~$100 on eBay, and for the money it's hard to beat.

Well there is no perfect Equalizer Setting out there. Just set it how you like it. Example,some dudes like fat basses and gain the low frequencies,but I am not one of them.. ;-)
