For anybody out there who's thinking about upgrading their sound, I just bought the Klipsch Promedia 2.1 system at Best Buy for $170 and it absolutely ROCKS. There is nothing comprable at this price point. The difference between these and, say, the higher-end Altec Lansings is huge. Playing Unreal Tournament has taken on a totally new dimension as has cutting videos on FCP 3. Anyway... big, big thumbs up for anyone who's thinking about some better audio for their Mac.
