I was going to buy a LP-2020A+ Lepai but then I realized that I had an older Receiver that might work, I know its a better system but do the 3.5mm to RCA cords work well? The Receiver from what I can find online has a power output of 145+145 for 8 ohms and 190+190 for 4 ohms. It seems to still be in tip top condition.

Should I go with that instead of the Lepai? I know this might be a silly question but...I am really unsure how older stuff would work with computers. The only speakers I have had for computers were computer speakers so I am not to savvy with this...(Currently have the Logitech 530).

Also are these worth it? http://www.monoprice.com/products/product.asp?c_id=102&cp_id=10218&cs_id=1021815&p_id=5598&seq=1&format=2#description

I was going to pick up two if I go this route in order to hook up 2 different PC's to them(and a HDTV but I think I have RCA to RCA in my closet somewhere).

Anyone have an idea on this? Also concerned if the Sub will even work on the Receiver, would what this guy say give good quality and work in post 4? http://forum.blu-ray.com/showthread.php?t=110113

I've got a 3.5mm to stereo RCA cable plug from my computer soundcard to my receiver right now. I don't get any hum at all sounds great. So yes it would work.

Yes, that monoprice cable is worth $2.88, do you have a local option for less?

Exactly how were you planning to connect the Pioneer sub to the Lepai 2020+? I have that amp and it only has one set of speaker terminals and no sub output.

I'd recommend you use your old Sony receiver instead of the Lepai. Connect the BS-22 speakers to speaker terminals A and the subwoofer to speaker terminals B.

That's really your only option.

No local options really, Bestbuy and thats a rip off....and thats the nearest one. I would still need that adapter thought to connect the sub correct?

This one: http://www.monoprice.com/products/product.asp?c_id=104&cp_id=10429&cs_id=1042906&p_id=7213&seq=1&format=2

Also how would I go about doing that on it? http://s489.beta.photobucket.com/user/jaquesofspeed/media/Sony%20STR-D350Z%20Receiver/SONYSTR-0D350Z5.jpg.html?fromLegacy=true

Not sure what Terminal B and A are exactly....

Ok I got my speakers and Subwoofer in the mail...

So all I would need is:

Speaker wires

2 Y adapters like this?: http://www.radioshack.com/product/index.jsp?productId=2103225&utm_source=Google&utm_medium=PPC&utm_term=2265718&utm_content=Exact&utm_campaign=PLA&cagpspn=pla&gclid=COia0-mtvLUCFRAT4AodnAEAAA&gclsrc=ds

and 3 RCA cords to connect it all to both my computers and TV?


It will sound pretty much the same as if I hooked it up to one that had a sub out right? I just need to adjust the crossover and volume on the back?
