I use a Macbook Pro that, when I'm at home, is "docked" to the LED Apple Cinema Display (i.e. all my peripherals go through the USB in the display, so I just have to plug in the power, USB, and mini display port). Unfortunately, if I want audio through my external speakers (Cinema Display speakers aren't very loud), I have to plug that in to my laptop. If I buy a USB-to-mini-jack adaptor and plug that into the monitor, will it solve this problem? Thanks everyone for your help. I really appreciate any help you guys can offer. My ultimate Mac "home station" is nearly complete, but this mini jack thing has been bothering me.
