Since you already have the computer, you can rip your CD's to the hard drive uncompressed and use it as a high quality Juke Box. On another thread, you were asking about sound cards. I would check out the Apogee Mini-DAC. It is expensive, but since you will save money with this set-up, you can afford the high-end sound card. If you haven't already upgraded to the Panther Operating System, you might want to do that. This *may* be why your computer is crashing with the sound card you're using now. Now, all you need is amplification and speakers. I would make the same recommendation to you that I made in another thread. I would buy a set pair of Mackie HR824 "active" Studio Monitors. These are bi-amped and sound great. They are used in many recording studios. This way, you don't have to run your signal through any more boxes before it gets to your speakers. With your G4 Mac, Apogee DAC and Mackie HR824's, you will have a great sounding system.
