I need to move my cheap PC speakers further away from my CPU.Does anyone know of an 'extention' cable/kit.

My speakers are the really cheapie sort,( only used to listen to the Archers) one cable ended with the light green mini jack , with on board sound.


TIA

Yes you can get a cheap extention wire. It's not worth sending as it will cost more in P&P than you can get a cable for. If you have Computer Fairs near you go to one of those as there are cable men

Lets get really cheap ??

Could I cut the wire and splice in with a couple of
'choc block ' connectors , and find a bit of bell wire ???




PS please NO replys from Audio experts, this is just to keep intouch with Grundies/Archers/Tony and Joleane !!!

Thanks Gongoozler ( you are not a fan)

I wanted a cheap idea , thank you very much
The extention will only be a couple of metres, so wont worry if I get a bit of hum
