    Well, I guess it's not exactly amplification you're looking for. Sound is usually amplified in the target-device, where your sound is going to sound on (e.g. PA, Active-Studio-Monitors, Hi-Fi Amplifiers etc...) and should be levelled appropriately when coming out of your Laptop.  So I guess you're rather interested in how to get the sound out of your Laptop in a quality way without using the headphone Jack. So the answer would be to use a OSX-compatible sound interface of any kind. There are many of it, so choose one that fits your needs! Important is the number of inputs and outputs you're going to need, and how much you're willing to spend. The sound quality is quite sufficient on even entry-level solutions, though.

    As I figured out, your m-audio prokeys sono 88 does have an integrated sound interface. So you don't have to get one. Make sure you installed all the drivers for the sono 88 and select it as audio-device in the ableton-configuration window under the audio-tab.

    Make sure your speakers/monitors naturally support full frequency range.  Desktop speakers won't give enough low-end, no matter how good.
