I have 6 speakers/satelites.
Each speaker/satelite is connected by two wires which are attached/glued to each other.
The two wires go into what I believe is called a RCA-Plug.
^ 2 wires ^ RCA plug
I am thinking about buying a 7.1 analog receiver and trying to plug in these6 satelites.
(I am also thinking about buying a creative home theater cable to connect the sound blaster to the receiver). (And also maybe a "powered ?" sub woofer)
The problem is with the receiver... the ones I looked at don't have RCA sockets.
Instead they have a seperate + thing and a - thing... where a wire has to be spinned around it ?
I would prefer not to damage my speaker cables... so I would like to keep the RCA plug attached to the cables. (In case I ever want to use them for something else that does support RCA plugs ;))
So I see two possibilities:
- Buying new cables without the RCA plug on it. (So just two wires end to end)
- Buying RCA Socket to wire cables/extensions... so that the RCA plug can be plugged into the RCA socket... so that the loose wires can then be spinned around the receiver thingies.
So a RCA Socket to two wires cable would look like:
Does such a cable exist ?
Also do receivers generally provide enough power to power speakers ?
(In this case 70 watt, 8 ohm speakers from the gigaworks s750 ;))
Is the "spinning system safe" ?
What if I accidently trip over the cable and jank it... fortunately on the speaker side the cable will be pulled out... but what about the spinning cable side ? (Maybe it's not necessary but it would be nice if it was "jank" proof... meaning that it comes out easily so nothing is damaged ;))
Also are there receivers out there that do support/have RCA sockets ?
I am also wondering if receivers need any special setup via monitors/televisions... like graphical setup... that's something I would prefer not to do so much... So I would prefer a receiver with a LCD display on it for configuring it...
Alternatively a receiver that can be connected to an old pal television or a hdmi monitor... or simply vga could do as well... This is something I would like to do only once though.
