    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
