Firstly, I appologise for not knowing a great deal about audio options for laptops etc.

I play music through my laptop and connect my hi-fi speakers using the headphone jack. This is imposible to do though when my laptop is proped up on the Logitech stand I have.

I recently borrowed my friend's USB Audio interface and this meant music was of a superior sound quality and I could have my laptop on the stand and listen through headphones (connected through the interface).

I have returned the interface now and need to know if there is any way to connect a USB audio interface, if I were to buy one, to my Hi-fi (speakers) so I wouldn't have to use headphones? My Hi-fi is quite a few years old.

If this can be done - any recommendations for cheapist interfaces on the market?

Thank in advance,

I have a Behringer UCA202 as a spare usb interface. It's inexpensive and works fine:


I expect the aux inputs on your hi-fi are RCA sockets, the outputs on the UCA202 are also, so you'd just need a standard 2xRCA to 2xRCA audio cable.

Thanks a lot.

Have just bought the Behringer interface and the cable.

You've cleared up something that has been on my mind for a while.
