Default Sansui set

Well my first post, i think i'm gonna love this forum

I got from my dad a whole set of Sansui devices. 2 Sansui s40 speakes, 1 Amplifier A-5 a pick-up FR-D45, an AM/FM Stereo T-7 and a stereo cassete deck D-95M. I was thinking of starting using them the sooner i could. I am mad with sound. I want to listen to my beloved rock or metal with the best quality i can get. I used the speaker with the pick-up and the amplifier and the speakers with my pc. And then an idea came. To connect my speaker and amplifier with my computer. But i can't find out how. Is there any possible way?

Thank you

You're gonna love your new cable with a stereo 3.5 mm jack at one end and a pair of RCA type plugs at the other
I don't think the amplifier has a DIN pentapolar type of connector
Maybe it has one on the tape out/in , parallel to the RCA types,
but it doesn't matter
You can have a Line out or a HP out from the computer . The HP adds
another amplification stage . You'll have to connect it to a Line level input , which is not the PU / Phono one ; all the others are good !
Also , if the amplifier has a separation between preamplifier section and the power amplifier , you can enter directly with the Main In of the amplifier , but
some precautions has to be taken , like putting the volume down or not to disconnect the plugs when it's 'on' . So the volume may be controlled directly via computer .
Another solution , also , if you don't rely on the quality of the sound card ,
is to use some digital output port , like USB , SPdif ( CD players have also optical and coaxial ) , and find an external DAC - ( D/A converter ) which has
the conventional RCA female plugs at its outputs .

picowallspeaker has given you some good advice...

Just use a "line" input on the amplifier such as tape or Aux etc but NOT phono (as that is for a record deck).

So you need an RCA type lead (what I call phono plugs ) at one end and a plug at the other end to suit whatever is on your PC.

You won't break anything doing that.
