Audioholics Review
"Overall we'd have to say that if you're going to spend good money on speakers for your home or office and you're driving your system with a PC or Mac, you really don't want to drop the ball and use the internal sound card - at least not for long. Save up the $169 and consider grabbing the AudioEngine D1. This is one upgrade you're going to be able to immediately hear and appreciate."
