    Hi I have got a new iMac 2013 and also plays the guitar.
    So Im propably going to get a Apogee Duet 2 music interface.

    Now its my understanding that I can/should also use the Apogee to play all sound for the iMac always since that gives much better sound than the iMac itself...I assume thats true but to be sure....is that true???
    How do you guys do??

    Also what speakers could I use for the prupose of connecting to the duet 2??

    In sweden at least most computer speakers have a 3.5 mm lineout connector...But the Apogee duet 2 speaker outlets are 1/4 or 6.3 mm...
    However I have seen adapters from 3.5 mm to dual 6.3 so could that be a good way to hookup the speakers I have today to an Apogee??

    How have you done that have an Apogee??How have you connected your speakers and does it work good?
    And again what kind of speakers do you use??
    best regards Micael from Sweden:apple:

    Studio monitors would be the best bet. What is your budget? Some of the best brands are ADAM Audio, Mackie, and Genelec.

    My budget might be around 500 us dollars up and down a bit.
    The thing is I already have external computer speakers from JBL that costed about 300 us dollars 2 years ago but they only come with a 3.5 line out so Im not sure if I could use them at all..so perhaps getting new ones..
    best regards Micael
