    Hey Everyone,

    I got a problem.
    I have a Late 2014 5k iMac and Bose Acoustimass 3 series V speakers.

    Is there anyway I can set these up without buying a very expensive receiver. I received the speakers for Christmas and don't really want to drop $$$ on a receiver.
    Any raw wire-to-aux adapter or anything??

    Thank you in advance!

    I don't know how many watts you need, but TriPath amplifiers can be very affordable. Some of them even have headphone jacks, which will will save you the annoyance of
    (My signal chain is Imac's SPDIF--->SMSL DAC/headphone amp--> AudioSource A100--> Klipsch speakers)

    Probably would have been a bit cheaper if I didn't acquire things piecemeal, but it sounds great
