Connect PC to amplifier


Standard Member
Help! I have loads of music on my laptop and desktop but dont want to burn them all off everytime i want to play them on my normal hifi. I have yamaha amp 2 or 3 yrs old connected to 5 speakers - Im not massively av literate but i know the real basics so can anyone tell me if i can get a lead (usb?) to go into my amplifier... or if there is something that i could use wirelessly.. any advice would be really really helpful - Thanks xx

Suggest this is moved to pc forum. You will need a sound card, or a motherboard with a sound output, that can be accepted by your amp? Optical usually, Coax, or componet are used by most people.

Unless I'm misunderstanding your question, you can probably just use a phono to RCA cable. One end goes from your headphone socket on your laptop/pc the other end will plug into your amp.

There are wireless devices but I dont have one so I cant talk about it.
