    Trying to connect my cheapo Aria Crystal DVD/DivX player to the speakers that came with the Toshiba HK-42 home cinema system. I want to replace the Tosh DVD/Amp.

    The Aria Crystal has phono outs but the speakers have bare wire clasps? Be there such a thing as cable or converters to join the two?

    Cheers

    Steve

    Can't be done I'm afraid. I can't find your Toshiba anywhere to check exactly what connections it has but if it doesn't have any analogue (red/white) or digital (optical or digi-coax) connectors then I'm afraid it can only produce sound from the built in DVD player (presuming it has one?).

    Edit. just realised the OP is from 2005. To the 2nd person, you will need to list your equipment (make/model) and also available connectors to get a full answer.

    you need to connect the you dvd player up to your toshiba player as this is the amp , this tosh machine has both spdif and coaxial connections so you need to connect via one of these.
