    Just wanted to see what kind of speakers people prefer to plug into their beloved macs. Am running Promedia's 2.1 with a new SWS subwoofer(yeah I'm a bass junkie and hoping to add a few more of em') Any idea when Apple's gonna support multiple channels?

    I've got Klipsch ProMedia 2.1 speakers, too. They're not much to look at, but damn do they sound great. :)

    JBL Creature

    Tiny, sexy, loud enough for me. Goes great with the TiBook.

    I got a bose freespace 6 business music system...
    as unusual as it sounds to use with a computer it sounds great... 25w RMS x 4
    they were givin it away for nothin at work a few years back :D
    (for the people who know the system i'm talking about, i have it with the rectangle version black speakers, not the in-roof speakers)

    At home, we use Bose media mate speakers for our iMac. At work its Apple pro speakers and eMac built in speakers.

    Needless to say the bose speakers sound worlds better.

    M-Audio Sonica USB soundcard routed to a JVC MX-GT90 stereo... you want bass? How about 180 watts per channel of it? :)

    Speakers

    Klipsch ProMedia 2.1's - simply stunning. The stereo system in our studio has become redundant since the Klipsch arrived.

    Built in speakers on my iMac DV with an iSub...Bose Media Mates on my iBook at school. I want to get a cable or a wireless way to run my iMacs sound output to my 500W RCA home theatre system.

    3 or so years ago I bought a set of Bose Acoustimass Media speakers - great stuff, solid, and still going great.

    Right now, just a JVC bookshelf system attached to my PB.

    Once I get a desktop I'm grabbing some Kilpsches. I had the original 4.1s on my PC and they were amazing.

    Yamaha YST speakers with a sub-woofer. Pretty darn loud. You should hear this thing when I play Medal of Honor. I should play Wagner in the background with it. :D

    Logitech Z-560's 4.1. these things sound suprizingly good for being $180 and only having one driver in the satellites. only complaint i have is that you cant get the bass all the way down on the hardware bass control... not suprizing since the sub has 188watts continuous power [400w cont. power total].:eek: :rolleyes:

    A set of the Bose computer cubes with sub. Sounds really nice in that diffuse Bose everywhere sound sort of way, but much better than some of the other computer specific set-ups I've listened to. But music on the computer just isn't my thing when there are really nice sound systems to listen to. Now, the paradigm studio 40s downstairs, sitting in the stereo field at just the right place - that's what the ears crave.
