    Just about any external USB sound card will work on a mac. However, the quality might not be all that much better than the built in sound.

    why not just send the 1/8th out into a buffer/pre amp or something

    I have an old griffin imic and cheap as it is, it's already much better than the output on my macbook.

    It means (I think) you should connect the audio output on your MacBook to a device that will process the sound itself before sending it out to your speakers.
