Hi all,

So I have this Samsung home cinema set my dad bought around 2013. The receiver, a Samsung HT-E5500 broke a few years ago and the speakers are useless without the receiver because of the peculiar connectors the speakercables have. I own a set of pc speakers, they are not bad, but also not that great. So I thought maybe I can use my old 5.1 Samsung cinema set speakers as pc speakers. The cable and the connectors of the speakers look like this: View: https://imgur.com/a/jFTya4g
all the speakers come with their own cable with their own connector color. They all go into the cinema set which looks like this: View: https://imgur.com/a8ZiWjM
. The name of the speaker set is ps-es4-1.
I thought that maybe there is some kind of adapter or other thing I can use to transmit the speaker signal into my pc, but it's harder to find information about it than i thought.

Do you guys have ideas?

Thanks in advance

Since I responded to your other question about the cable, the problem is that the cinema speakers REQUIRE an amplifier. And according to the manual they are 3 ohm speakers -- https://downloadcenter.samsung.com/content/UM/201203/20120312085057785/02438A_HT-E5500_XU_00_0224.pdf see PDF page 67.
Three ohm speakers are difficult to find an amplifier that will support them.
