What do you hookup your pc/laptop into for sound?

I´ve got a Denon stereo amp and two old Philips speaker boxes.

The boxes aren´t huge, but adequate.

And a soundcard on the pc for enhancements and eq btw.

Actually, in the apartment we used to live in, the neighbor was complaining about it even though it was played at a very nominal volume... just right for watching a movie, but the bass was overwhelming.
The speakers are ported, and produce bass levels like you'd expect from a bass cannon.
They are the biggest sounding small speakers I've ever heard, and rival anything Bose offers in a similar size for a fraction of the cost.
I'd recommend them to anybody. I do use studio headphones when mixing and mastering though as the flat response makes them ideal for that.

thumbsup.gif Denon makes killer consumer equipment with great specs! Even with a hodgepodge of assorted speakers (which I've seen, heard and had myself) a solid amp like that can make those old second hand speakers sound like a million bucks, without spending a million bucks.

i was looking for new speakers online.

but i chickened out. cause you don´t really know what you get untill you hook them up on your system.
i like those old suckers. they´re nice enough, and the size is just right.
