Hi everyone.

I have a few Technics speaker which give good sound, and I would like to hook them up to my Macbook Pro, via the audio out port.

The problem is, they don't have a 2.5mm or 3.5mm connector - each speaker has 2 wires , L and R.

How would I go about using these with my macbook?

Sounds like you have passive speakers. You need an amplifier. Something along the line of this:

The audiosource "amp-100" would be perfect. About $150 plus the cost of cable and wire
