    to hook up some powered monitors and my laptop (and my desktop when I upgrade)?

    Thanks very much.

    Ok sorry for my laziness on the research.

    well I got this far.

    Laptop -> Interface -> Monitors


    I just wanted to be sure. I hate talking to sales reps. I wanted to get an answer from some home bodies. :lol:

    Not sure what you mean by "interface"?

    Laptop/Adapter - that either comes with or is part of the speakers "normal" cables, depending on how "monitor-y" these monitors are(The higher the price, maybe the less chance they'll hook-up quite as directly to your laptop)or you get at Radio Shack for $2.95 - possibly some sort of 1/8", which goes to your LT's "line-out" jack, to whatever-the speakers-need, "splitter" to feed both speakers, left/right channels/ monitors, should do it? All should be well-detailed in the speakers instructions, or check the on-line manuals for any speakers contemplated...
