i'd say that both a good set of speakers and a good sound card can make a world of difference. when i upgraded my speakers, i heard great sound improvment, then i upgraded my soundcard and heard even more improvment in the sound. a decent set of speakers and a decent soundcard are a good investment. of course, i am sort of an audiophile who rips his cd collection at or higher than 256 bitrate.
