So i'm graduating this june, and since i already have a beautiful macbook pro and i won't need a car for college(moving to San Francisco) i'm considering a really nice speaker set for a graduation present. I've been using these generic 2.1 7 year old computer speakers for the past.....7 years. I've since become more interested in audio etc and would like a new audio setup. I kind of want an external sound card as i can sometimes hear the computer "thinking" when headphones/speakers/ etc are plugged into the 1/8" jack of my MBP. So what would you reccommend as far as external sound cards (the only one i've looked at so far is the duet), amplifiers, speakers, and subwoofers. So throw them at me!
