Connecting PC to remote speakers

    I would like to play audio output from my PC in another room. I've looked at wireless speakers but the lack of choice and doubt about final sound quality are worrying so it seems as if a cabled solution is needed. I don't want to disrupt the speaker set up currently connected to the PC so unless it's possible to split the audio output from the sound card I'll need to connect the remote speakers to the PC headphone socket. I've found a Y connector that converts a mini-jack to 2 audio plugs which seems a start and I've run 15 metres of speaker cable to the other room. Can I simply buy audio plugs to cramp onto the cable ends and thereby connect the Y connector to the remote speakers. Also what would be best in the other room, some active speakers or can I use a reasonably good spare Sony hi-fi that I happen to have. It has 2 pairs of audio input sockets in the back labelled VIDEO IN and MD IN. Could I use these. Any advice would be hugely appreciated.
