Connecting monitors Dec. 31st, 2012 @ 03:38 PM Reply

Hello everybody

I want to buy a pair ofthese monitors but I really have no idea to connect them.

I want to connect to a laptop via this audio interface.

Is it possible to connect them like that? what cables do I need to set them up?

Thanks!!

I'm also looking to do this haha but I might save a bit and get a pair of rokit 6s

Anyway I'm pretty sure you'll need two of these: http://www.amazon.co.uk/Audio-Cable-6-35mm-Instrument-Instru ments/dp/B004TXBEHC/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1356996516&sr=8-1

and connect one to the L stereo out on your interface to the left speaker (TRS slot in the back of the Rokit) and the same with the other cable to the right speaker.

You could also get RCA cables which would go into the red and white sockets in your interface - and they would go into the RCA socket in the Rokit (rhymes lol)

I don't know the difference in audio transmission or quality or anything like that though sorry
hope i helped

AeroMusic is right. TRS or RCA cables would work. TRS would be a few bucks more, but they're balanced. More info on that here.
