    I am planning to get an iMac after the Summer, but was wondering in the meantime if it would be possible to connect my Creative Inspire 6700 6.1 speakers, that I have on my PC, to the mac. Anyone know if it would be possible? Even if only as a 2.1 solution, I wouldn't mind.

    They connect to the PC's soundcard with 3 jacks (right, left & sub/centre), so it doesn't look promising.

    You can only connect stereo outboard speakers to the iMacs through the headphone socket ... the same socket will deliver a digital optical output to a suitably equipped amp for surround sound decoding ... there are some usb surround sound speaker packages available ...
