Hello, I need some help with my system.


Might help if i first tell you what kit I have.


I have a cable box which connects through HDMI.

PS3 which connects through HDMI


TV which has a VGA input and only 1 HDMI input.


Sony STRDH510 AV Unit


Now I know I need to get some speakers. I am looking at these Logitech Z323.


I havn't purchased the speakers yet but I am unsure whether I would be able to connect them to the AV receiver. Is there anyway I could connect the 3.5mm jack to the unit?


I really want to resolve this as soon as possible but I need to know whether I can connect these PC speakers to my system.


Thanks in advance for your help.

They main reason is cost... I live in a very small apartment. I know that sound quality wise I'm better off getting bigger speakers but I really don't need that much power so PC speakers would be perfect...I just don't know that they'd work... as they connect via a normal headphone socket like the ones in an ipod.


I need to know whether PC speakers would work with my AV receiver.

Does your Sony have pre-outs for all channels?


Look at the back panel.


If it has pre-outs, the answer is yes.

If it does NOT have pre-outs, the answer is no.


By the way, I just looked for you.


No you don't have pre-outs, so no you can't connect PC speakers...


But wait, actually "you can" if you get enough of these...
http://www.amazon.com/XANTECH-SLLC1-...2233293&sr=1-1 (you'll need 3)

and three of the above 1/8th to RCA connectors.


So, you "could" spend $80 on "making this work" (by the way, do you actually already have PC speakers?????)...or add the $80 to your actual speaker budget.
