Hooking up a stereo system to laptop

Recommended Posts

I've googled it and such but.....

 

I have a digital tower/cd thingy with 2 bitchin' speaker hooked up to it.

In the back of the digi tower/cd thing there is a little thing that says "VIDEO/AUX IN" under which has 2 holes for input....named "LEFT" and "RIGHT".

 

Where in my house can I find a cord to hook up my laptop to said holes via the headphone port?

 

Or what cord do I need?

You need a RCA pair to 1/4" jack. Radio Shack has them, spend a little bit of cash (at least $10) and get one that won't wear out or sound like shit.

I doubt it.

I might have an extra one if you live in Toronto.

It shouldn't burn that big of a hole in your wallet if you get one though.

Sorry, I meant 1/8" plug.

Here's a pic....also you're going to have to make sure the sound sends to the headphone jack and not the speakers. Usually this is automatic but in this case it probably won't be because I said it was automatic. And turn down your stereo.

 

And you can get them ANYWHERE. Seriously, most drug stores have them. Radio Shack is open till 9, as is Best Buy.

No, but I've DJed parties with exactly the same arrangement. It's not ideal but it works.

I copied that out of the Google bar without really paying attention.

Aha my amp in my basement takes 1/4" jacks.

It's pretty damn old, still decent outage.

Rattles the hell out of the kitchen ;]
