If your PC doesn’t have digital outputs or your receiver doesn’t have them, you will need to use the regular analog connection. You will need the cable shown in Figure 5, which at one end has two male RCA connectors and at the other hand a stereo P2 male plug (stereo mini jack). If on the store you go to buy it the clerk doesn’t understand what you want, just say that you want a cable to connect your Discman to your home stereo. It is the same cable.
On the receiver, plug the red (or yellow) male RCA connector from the cable to the plug labeled “R” or “Right” on the receiver, and the white (or black) male RCA connector from the cable to the plug labeled “L” or “Left” on the receiver, on the input we described last page (“Aux”, “Tape In”, “CD In”, etc). See Figures 6 and 7.
Now just insert the other end of the cable to the green connector located on your PC.
Now everything is connected and should work just fine. You need to change the input selector on your receiver to the correspondent input you used. I.e. if you connected your PC to the “Aux” input, you choose select “Aux” on your receiver.
