    What is it you're looking for? It's integrated into the chipset, not a discrete sound card like a Creative X-Fi. The speakers are likely made by some no-name Chinese conglomerate manufacturer.

    Agreed. No laptop manufacturer (including Apple) is going to include something like B&W or Dynaudio speakers, especially given that the acoustics of the computer enclosure are horrible (so you would never hear the benefits of top-grade speakers). If you want hi-end sound quality, you will need to go to external speakers.

    haha...thats true...i already have jbl speakers...infact the reason i was asking is that they are the best speakers i have heard on any laptop...so if it was made by some no name far eastern manufacturer...its pretty impressive as for the sound card...just general curiosity about what it is...mainly because i'm having some sample rate issues from time to time & was wondering if i could get support for it...

    (b&w & dynaudio? you went too far man...lmao...i dont think anyone who is into that kind of sound expects it out of a laptop)

    anyhow...thanks guys...

    I'd be willing to bet its a RealTek part. But support comes from Apple, not from RealTek - just because Apple didn't design the audio chip, doesn't mean they don't support it.
