    I have a sound blaster live platinum card.
    How can I hook my home stereo speakers so I can hear a beat or vocal I made?

    What wires should I use and what in out should I use.

    The reason I'm asking is cause I have cheap speakers on my computer.

    43inc,

    I don't know this sound-card, so I'm kinda guessing a bit here, but....

    it should have some kind of audio out sockets, probably 1/4 inch jacks or phono/RCA. Whatever they are they should be labelled 'audio out' or something similar. Whatever they are you need to get to Tandy's/Radio-Shack/a decent audio supply shop and buy yourself a phono lead long enough to go from the soundcard to the amplifier on your stereo. If the plugs on the end of the lead don't look like they'll fit the sockets on your soundcard then you'll need to buy 2 phono to 1/4 inch jack adaptors. You then plug the lead into the soundcard and the other end into the line/aux input of your stereo amplifier. Easy..... unless you have an integrated stereo system (i.e there's no external plugs on it labelled aux or cd or whatever) in which case you are stuffed, cos you'll have to dismantle it in order to attach your wires to an input on your amp.

    Hope this helps, oh yeah if you do buy the leads get decent thick ones, they'll last longer and sound better.
