    Hey guys, Im planning to use 2 Sony SS-LE500ED speakers with my computer and was wondering which was the best way to go about it. I have a top of the line amplifier (Pioneer AX10i) but would prefer to go direct from computer to speakers. I have a Hercules soundcard, would it be possible to get a 3.5mm to 2 banana plug connector ? Or do such powerful speakers need an amplifer to supply proper power

    :confused:

    Hello, McFly. If they are not active (self powered) speakers thenthey will need an external amplifier.
