Bose speaker system compatibility with devices

I am not very technically literate, please bear with me. I have a Bose Companion 3 Multimedia Speaker System which I use connected to my laptop for listening to music. The speakers have very good sound. My computer has music from all my old cds that I put on it, as well as music downloaded from Amazon music. I would like to find a device that is not a regular computer that I can connect to the Bose speaker system. For example, if I buy a tablet can I connect it to the Bose with the cable that is now connected to my computer and listen to my music from the tablet? The goal is have my computer in my office room but be able to listen to the Bose system in another part of the house without buying new speaker or spending a lot of money. I just want to listen to MP3 music files from the Bose system separate from my laptop. Hope this makes sense. Thank you.
