I have 3 stand-alone speakers that work. Each of these speakers has the box (with the diaphragm, etc.) and two thin colored wires dangling from the back with the ends of the wires shaved off and the metal exposed.

I would like to use these speakers/ get them to work with my TV and DVD player. I have a Samsung LED TV and DVD player, both bought in the past year. I have no AV receiver/ woofer, etc.

Without spending too much money, is it easy for me to connect my speakers to my tv/dvd player? Is there an adapter that uses my TV/ DVD player sound as an input, and has clamps at the back where I can insert the wires of my speaker?

Thanks,

Sid

You'll need to buy a receiver to make things work.

Yes. You'll need some type of receiver to connect your components to and provide power for those speakers. If you are just starting out with multi-channel, I would just pick up a refurbished Onkyo TX-NR414 or Denon AVR1612. If you don't have HDMI cables you can order a couple of the Amazon Basic cables. I have a couple of those cables I use for xBox and mobile devices and they are pretty good for the price. If your DVD player doesn't have HDMI and doesn't upconvert to 1080p, then you'll need a receiver that does that. Either the Onkyo TX-NR515 or Denon AVR-1912/1913. Should still be under $280 for step-up models at Accessories4less.

Denon AVR X7200WA, Emotiva XPR-5, Emotiva XPA-7, Sony XBR 75" 850C, Oppo BDP-103D, Roku 4.
DefTech BP7000SC (L/R), CLR3000 (C), SM55 (FH), UIW BPZ/A (SB), UIW 75 (TM).
JBL L7 (Sur), EoSone RSR 350 (RH).

PC 2.1 setup. Emotiva Stealth 6, SVS SB2000 sub, Emotiva DC-1 DAC.

Well, not really. The TV - all HD sets actually - already include an upscaler (though their quality can vary).
