    Having the new iMac since release I've been wondering for quite a time now what 2.1 Soundsystem I should buy for it. All we got is 3.5mm and USB Audio output. I would like to buy a pretty powerful 2.1 System with at least 35W for the satellites and 100W subwoofer but I'm not sure if it makes any sense in regard to the iMacs onboard sound-card.

    I'm thinking about systems like the following two (description is in German I know but I want to show you generally what I mean):

    Link 1

    Link 2

    Will the iMacs output be good enough to make nice and powerful sound with those systems or is it gonna sound awful?

    Can you recommend me a good system? Costs she be between 200 - 350 €/$

    Thanks!

    The Klipsch ProMedia 2.1 is a very good speaker system.

    I am quite happy with my Logitech z623 speakers with my iMac

    I've got the smaller Audioengine speakers (A2) at work and I'm very happy with them, even without a sub. I'm sure the A5+ are even better.

    I use my old and unused Yamaha receiver RX-V659 connected to Wharfedale Evo 10.

    Then the iMac going to the receiver through mini TOSLINK.

    Not exactly a computer speaker system since the receiver used to be on my home theater, but sounds awesome for relatively little $$ to spend compared to "multimedia speakers" in general. No subwoofer needed and I can expand my system to 5.1 or 7.1 easily.
