Question about Speakers & Subwoofers
When I opened up the box I couldnt believe what I was looking at (the leads that is). It states that its ideal for dvd players, home computers and games consoles! the cables are not the right connection for my computer, as they are red and white connectors. do I have to buy a new set to connect the speakers to my computer, or is there any possible way to connect these speakers to a computer?
my computer is capable to connect 7.1, but the sockets at the back is as follows including colour of sockets at the back:
Line in (blue), front speaker out (lime), side speaker out (Grey), rear speaker out (black) and centre/subwoofer (orange), Mic (pink).
can you help?
Do u have to buy a durabrand dvd play? or can u plug them into a samsung 42" plasma tv?

Each "red and white" represent a stereo pair (Right and Left respectively. What type of connectors are on the SA51AR? I will guess TS (tip sleeve) or Phono for the sake of this answer.
It sounds as if the PC's outputs are stereo TRS (tip, ring sleeve) 1/8" female connectors, which is normal. TRS connectors carry both the Left and Right signals whereas Phono and TS only carry one signal each.
Radio Shack has converters which will allow you to plug a "red and white" connector in one end (either TS or Phono) and will provide a TRS output on the other which will plug into your PC's sound outputs. That way, the Red/White pair for "Side Speakers" (front L/R) can plug into the one grey jack and the Rear (rear L/R) can plug into the black-jack, etc.
