    I just nailed a Sansui 771 Stereo Receiver on Craigslist, and am going to use it at my school. The only thing that I need to work out now, is how to run a computer through it.

    The school admin want to use a Windows machine with iTunes on it to play the music at school, but neither they, nor I know how to wire the computer to the receiver.

    Any help?

    Umm, perhaps the line out of the computer to Aux in or a CD in or a Tape in (Playback) jacks on the stereo? Depending on the sound card in the Windows box, either 2 x RCA - 2 x RCA, or a mini stereo plug to 2 x RCA cable will be needed, $5 - $8 at any stereo or electronics store.

    There are no digital inputs on that classic receiver, so it's analog all the way.

    The only thing to watch out for is not to crank the computer output up too high that it overloads the line inputs of the receiver.
