Re: Logitech R-20 connection method
Either way you should be fine. Notebooks have the proper connectors to hook up an external speaker system to them. Just hook up the 1/8" connector with the green end to the green 1/8" female audio port and you're set to go.

Usually you can purchase audio cables for speakers and sub-woofers from any or authorized PC outlets. Just explain to the dealership what you want to connect it to and they will shoe you the right "jack" to buy.
Since Logitec Z-5500 is a 5.1 Speaker System you need to purchase a Sound Card to be able to connect it with your pc. You can get a Sound card starting with a price tag of 20 Pounds.
Hope this will help you solve your problem
There are two possible methods of adjusting the bass and treble output to your Logitech R20 speakers: 1. Hardware - if you feel like experimenting or working with electronic gadgets, you can connect an external preamp with tone control or graphic equalizer between the PC and the input of the speakers/amp; and/or (probably the easiest) 2. Use a software (to listen to your music files/medium) that has a virtual equalizer such the old MusicMatch Jukebox or as an add-on/plug in.
The speakers are designed so that you can switch between a variety of different audio sources. there are 5.1ch analog 3.5mm jacks to hook up to a computer's 5.1 soundcard, SPDIFs (both analog, and digital), and a bunch of other goodies. I have their predecessors myself (the Z-680s), and they are excellent speakers in themselves.
but has to answer your question, here's a PDF of the user manual, explaining how to connect each source (click here).
You can certainly purchase a cable or an adaptor to connect the speakers to almost anything - this however is not the issue -
z5300 computer speakers have an impedance of 8 ohms, whereas most home theatre systems will be set up to use speakers with an impedance of 4 Ohms or 6 ohms or 8 ohms - using the wrong type in the wrong configuration is very likely to result in damage. Also the speakers contain their own amplifier, and are designed to accept an input that has not been amplified to speaker levels before - most tv/dvd audio output will be amplified, depending on the model, so will almost certainly destroy your speakers unless you have a low amplification output on your tv/dvd.
If you post back with the make and model of your tv and dvd player, hopefully i can find the necessary info to describe how you could make the connection if it is possible.
"Logitech speakers are powered speakers and are designed to be used with a home computer. However, it is still possible to connect your speakers to many other devices. You can connect any Logitech speaker to any device that has a pre-amp mini-headphone jack. Home amplifiers will normally contain a standard ¼" headphone jack. You'll need to purchase a ¼" to 1/8th" adapter to connect your Logitech speakers to a home amplifier.
Note: Under no circumstances should you connect your Logitech speaker system to an amplified output such as the rear outputs of a home amplifier. Doing so may cause damage to your Logitech speakers as well as your home amplifier."
Hope this helps - please post back with details :)
