I have no immediate plans for doing any serious audio production using this machine (although that might be a possibility in the future). 

Hi, Jordan.  You can probably use a low-end interface like the Behringer
UCA202 which runs around $30 US.  While certainly not great, I've found it
fine for playong audio out to my stereo and to do the occasional cassette
or turntable transfer.
