    Hi all, I've asked in the projector section of the forum with no luck. I'm looking at getting the Epson EMP-S3 projector (or something very similar) to connect to my DVD player and do presentations. I want to attach some speakers to my DVD player as well but I think I need an AMP (correct ??).

    If so, will something like this do:

    If it won't can somebody suggest what I need to do.

    Many thanks in advance

    I am afraid not. That is only a power amp, you would also need a pre-amp to control the volume etc.

    Try sevenoaks, they do a few cheap stereo amps.

    How about some powered PC speakers with volume control? Would probably be sufficient for a presentation though you may need to change the connector.

    I've been looking at some PC speakers with built-in AMPs which I'm led to believe will suffice, the only problem is would they connect to my DVD player ?!

    The PC speakers would have a 3.5mm headphone connector at the end. All you would require is a 3.5mm -> 2xRCA adapter from maplin or any other electronic shop.

    Then you plug this adapter into the DVD players phono (RCA) out socket.

    Your audio requirements are guided by the size of audience your presenting too and the type of material your playing back - the Projector has a rudimentary Stereo playback system built in; which is fine for two or three folk watching promo videos and the like.

    A poor quality PC sound system will be no better than what's include in the projector.

    So how many folk, how will you transport the kit and what about using your PC to play the DVD's - saves lugging a DVD player around!

    Best regards

    Joe
