My soundcard supports 7.1 sound and is manafactured by creative. There are two of thse speakers and no subwoofer.
These are currently connected to my dads system: a cd player connected to an external amplifier, which is then connected to these speakers.
I dont expect that there is an adapter I can buy to allow me to connect these to my sound card, but if there is it would save me alot of money and give me better sound quality as these are very good speakers.
If anyone knows of a connection method, please let me know.
An alternative question: IF this is not possible, then I will buy some new speakers - these are the ones I have in mind: click here The only thing that concerns me is the output level, at 31 watts. How loud is this? There are other 1.2 systems at 200 watts, can someone give me an idea as to how loud this system will be at 31 watts?
may be wrong but I would'nt think of connecting those speakers to the pc.they look as if they would probably need a dedicated amp as your dad uses .As for watts well you dont hear watts and it is not a true indication of how loud it will sound. A setup claiming 200 watts could sound less loud than a 30 watt or vice versa so if you can find some kind of review of a system I would be guided by that more than Wattage claims.
I agree with Stuartli. My set up is to connect and old amplifier to the LINE IN socket on my soundcard and run a pair of equally old hi-fi speakers through the amp. Works a treat with the added bonus that I can connect a turntable to the amp too and use sound-editing software to transfer old vinyl to CD.
The speakers have to use a Amp. Computer Speakers have a small Amp built into one of the Speakers but the ones you show are for connection to a Amp. So you would have to plug the amp into the sound card and speakers into the Amp
