Just an FYI. My IO has been catching dust for the last few years until this past week when I FINALLY mounted it in my truck. Last year I purchased a USB soundcard sold by Telex (very good name in commerical audio products) for $15. I actually purchased it via www.gateway.com (yeah - the cow computers) believe it or not! Sounds like a million dollars. Also - for juice, I purchased one for like $10 plus shipping (look at the link near the bottom). It looks like its el-cheapo taiwanese crap but its working great. Not bad at all. I had to purchase a $15 ground loop noise filter from RadioShack to filter out loud annoying alternator noise (its a loud constant hiss with a RPM corresponding whine). It sounds like a million dollars now.

Note - careful bidding on these. This guy advertises them for different brands of laptops but they are all the same. Some go for 9 bux and other auctions end at $40!
Um... For audio out I just soldered extra wires to the speakers and stuck the wires out the back of the case. My intent is to just put a headphone plug on the end or an RCA plug on each wire and put them in whatever I want the sound to come out of. Or in the car just take one of those cassette adapters for a cd player and hang it off the wires coming from the IO so you can just put it into the car cassette player. FWIW
