Connecting PC speakers up to wireless music receiver

by tech_fantatic / October 20, 2006 1:18 AM PDT

I have the Philips Wireless Music Receiver: I don't actually have a stereo system and I'm wanting to keep the overall size rather small.

What is the best way to hook up the speakers so I can use them with this device. I already have these Philips speakers: and I am wanting to see how they work with the device (I think they may be too quite). However, I assume with these speakers you would just plug directly into the device rather than the cable included plugging into the speakers. Would this be how it would work?

I've also seen really good reviews on : or But, I'm not sure how these would plug into the device. Someone told me to purchase an RCA to female adapter, which I did. But I am trying to think how a PC speaker would set up to this device and I can't seem to think of it, even with the adapter.

Can anyone help me out? I really would like to start using my receiver, but have not idea what to do with speakers.

If I can't use a PC speaker I will either return the device or get something like a home entertainment system in a box so that I can have the smallest size.

Any help would be great!

PC speakers would work, the Phillips speakers would work, they would also make good PC speakers. Any self-powered speaker system with a 3.5mm plug would work. John

Thanks so much for answering my question.

So, would both of these speakers plug directly into the receiver? Instead of using the adapter? I don't know how the nicer Philips speakers work.

I'm totally new to this whole thing, so I don't understand much Wink

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
