    I change my audio output between headphones and a sound card multiple times throughout the day. Is there a quick function to get to this without having to go to system preferences>sound>output every time?

    I want to click something possibly in the dock that takes me right to the screen shot.

    There most certainly is a way to do this.

    1. Navigate to: /System/Library/PreferencePanes/
    2. Locate 'Sound.prefPane'
    3. Drag that item to the RIGHT hand side of your dock
    4. Rename as appropriate
    Done.

    Wow, thank you! This community is so great, makes me feel like a Mac noob even though I made the switch about 4 years ago.

    Trust me, you'll learn HEAPS the longer you stay around MacRumors forums. Glad I could help out. :D

    You can also simply option-click the speaker icon in the menu bar and select the desired output directly from there.
