I have these old Dell ADA425 2.1 Speakers (w/ subwoofer ) which work fine when I connect to my laptop via the headphone jack.

However, I'm trying to use them with my turntable which has an auxiliary output.

Is there a specific connector I can purchase which will allow me to connect my external speakers to my turntable? I've tried searching Google but I can't seem to find what I'm looking for. Please excuse if this isn't the proper forum for this topic.

Hi

Assuming that it will work if you simply connect the line out sockets on the turntable directly to your speakers, then you need 2 things (as I can't find a single adapter that does this) :

1) A cable with 2 phono plugs on one end & a single socket on the other:

2(M) into 1(F) phono cable

2) A phono plug to mono socket adapter:

phono plug to 3.5mm socket

I use a similar setup myself for connecting my PC's sound card (line out) to my stereo amplifier.

Thank you very much. This is exactly what I've been looking for. I believe the following is the equivalent of the 1st product you mentioned, http://www.amazon.co.../ref=pd_sim_e_3

I don't exactly know the function of the second product you mentioned, but will I still need it with the above equivalent cable?

No, you would only need that one cable - that was one I was originally looking for but couldn't find!
