I just have one question...why?

It's portable enough to carry in a back pack and I really don't have to suffer bad sound from laptop speakers. When you travel a lot... you just can't buy a good set of speakers each time you set foot on a new place :( (well you can but it would be troublesome)

Oddly, over the years, my hearing tastes have changed. When I was in my 20's and Early 30's (Almost 40 now), if I heard something that came out of laptop speakers, tiny cheap speakers, or poor quality speakers, I would turn it off, or do everything in my power to fix the sound. I even used to run an 8 channel sound mixer and sometimes 16 channel for my church back then and always had postive feedback on how good it sounded.

Now days, I guess I have older and probably more used to lesser quality sound, because I will sometimes find myself happy to just have any music coming out of 'tin can' speakers not to say though that I don't appreciate good sound. :)

Guess I'm still in my 20's... will give you feedback at 40's!

I forgot about good speakers when I got my first laptop. I just press Play and, if I want to, just use the headphones, which are very good. If I'm working or something, the music just come from the tiny speakers of my 13 inch MacBook Pro.

I can hear beyond normal frequencies.... on the upper end around 28khz-32Khz.

I'm the other way around, as I get older (40) sound quality is becoming more important, it's so bad I rather watch a movie on my PC than the TV because for now my PC speakers are tons better than the builtin crappy speakers on our TV, and I'm a FLAC fanatic

Another lossless fanatic here too, all my music library is in either FLAC or APE, sometimes tta or tak, being a bit presumptuous I can tell the difference between a MP3 320 VBR file and a lossless one, but not from ogg or "mp4" (audio part)

I most of mine in vbr v0 or v2 .mp3 for my phone and desktop gets higher bit rates, however most of my music is purchased downloads and most of those don't give you flac or I pay a little less for 320 or whatever.

This is the reason why you get a home theater (surround sound)...I love my Klipsch Promedia 2.1 for my desktop, but there's just nothing like a LED TV + Blu-ray + 5.1 surround sound...For that reason, I generally dont watch anything on my desktop. I'll just stream my files from my desktop to the TV.

You guys have some wicked set ups! I'm seriously going to have to post one of mine as soon as I get finished moving. Also, that LED ambient lighting is awesome, as well.
