How do I hook em up? Anybody have external speakers connected to their macs? I have an imac G5 and would desperately like to upgrade from the built in crap it came with.

Got an external amp or receiver? That's about your choices.

T-AMP? I run my computer through my old H/K AVR25, which is an original Pro-logic receiver. You should be able to find a used receiver that'll do the trick.

Unfortunately Macintosh computers are only compatible with art deco peripherals.

Since Macs are compatible with Windows, they're pretty much compatible with everything out there. If you choose not to run Windows on them, however, they will NOT be compatible with viruses and spyware. Sometimes, you have to make sacrifices.

Compatible, huh? That's kind of a good spin on "we abandoned our dinosaur hardware for the very thing we've been saying we were better than for 20 years".

Or is it "Windows is compatible with Macs?"
