I have a pair of Rokit RP8 (specs) (img) studio monitors. They are self powered. I'm using a Presonus Firebox (specs ) (img) to output the signal from my computer through balanced TRS cables.


How would I setup a theater(Playstation 3, movies..) through them? The PS3 has HDMI out and TOSlink out. Monitors have RCA, XLR and Balanced in. How can I control the monitors? The Firebox only works with the computer, no?


I guess what I'm wondering is if I'm going to need some sort of nonpowered D/A converter receiver to control the signal. No idea where to begin looking for that.


Some ideas, articles or any thoughts would be appreciated. Thanks!

Any AV receiver with pre-outs will do it for you. Use HDMI or S/PDIF to connect all sources to receiver, and then RCA to TRS cables from receiver pre-outs to your speakers.


You should be able to find receiver you need for $500 or less.
