Can anyone help me out.This is not working.I connected the cable properly fom headphone jack but i get nothing.Could use the help.Its not the speakers as i tried another set just to make sure.Help pleasePlease
I have a laptop w/windows8 that i would like to connect to a rotel rb-1050 70x2 amp.What would be the best way to do the connection.would appreciate any help.thanks
Try the Audioquest Dragonfly USB DAC, or go wireless with the Outlaw Audio OAW3 wireless audio system. Both products bypass the internal soundcard in your laptop, to provide superior sound. I currently use the OAW3 to playback digital music from one of my laptops to my secondary 2-channel system, and it delivery excellent sound quality without any form of external interference whatsoever.
Bottom line, the OP's laptop might perform worse, but an investment of about $5 in a cable seems like a reasonable risk.
I don't see any purpose in necessarily prejudicing a person against the equipment that they already own. ;-)
I guess I saw Rotel and assumed the OP was going for High Res audio, or at least high quality, but rereading the post I was mistaken. In college I hooked up my laptop through the headphone out to my roomate's mid-fi stereo and it sounded great for parties. If you just want decent to good sound this method is perfectly fine.
If however you are trying to create a high-end solid state music server you'll want to invest in an external DAC and preamp.
