I guess you mean you ripped your cd music to mp3 and are trying to play from the computer?

This works best if you have an existing stereo system that's close to your computer, I have seen an adapter cable that you can buy at local electronics store with a mini stereo jack that plugs into your computer and a long cable with regular left and right rca jacks

For some unknown reason every one I bought was borrowed by my kids

depending upon the output of your computers sound card/onboard the choices are quite endless

since it's stereo mp3's you don't need a 5.1 surround system

powered ones are the only thing i would consider, the more the better

The audio output of the computer isn't going to drive normal stereo type speakers. Speakers designed to work with computers have an amplifier built into them. You will need to take the signal from the computer using the 1/8" stereo jack to RCA jacks as was previously suggested and plug this into your stereo, there should be an auxiliary input on the rear of the stereo.

Family and loved ones will always be a priority in my daily life.  You never know when one will leave you.

Would it be easier to connect my stereo to my computer?

If so, how is that done?

Thanks for the help :thumbsup:
