360 With PC Monitor and Speakers?

post #1 of 15
Thread Starter 
Well, i understand that you can connect an Xbox 360 to your monitor usingone of these:



I was planning on maybe buying a Dell UltraSharp 2007WFP to use it with. (for 720p, and for using it with my PC as well )

But how the hell would i get sound?? I don't have any fancy speakers that use RCA leads.

I would want to use my PC's 2.0 speakers that use a 3.5mm stereo jack. Is this possible?

I don't want to plug the 360's sound into my pc, and then into my speakers, as IMO its dumb to have to have my PC on, just to get sound for a 360.

So i either get an Xbox and use the AV or SCART leads with my TV, or i buy a HD VGA cable and an uber monitor.

But i really don't see how im meant to get sound.

And this is looking expensive...

And to avoid the switching of wires every time you want to use your PC and vice versa, plug the 3.5mm into your Line-In

Get an adapter:

RCAs plug into the correct parts of the 360, and there is a nice little jack for your 2.0 at the other end. This actually consists of an adapter and two double-ended female RCA plugs because my adapter didn't come that way and I needed it. It all shoudln't cost you more than $5 to $10.

Do you have a stereo receiver? I hook up everything to mine. A receiver should have some sort of RCA in, and speaker out.

Looks like a big car radio face plate, but its a box. Usually has alot of RCA hookups un the back. In other words, maybe you call them Amps in the UK.

You don't even need to bother with the Male to Female things. Just people at OC complicating things as usual As a pretty experienced Audiophile, these will work fine:

http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/2-RCA-Phono-Fe...QQcmdZViewItem

This allows you to plug your Red and White phono leads straight in, and it outputs in Headphone RCA. If you want to use your PC speakers, just bob this into the "Line-In" slot on your Soundcard and it should come through from the 360 when wanted.

Hope this helps you out mate. I gave you the UK site, as I've seen you're from England like me. Can't go wrong for £2.79!

And you just posted a nearly identical thread on this topic 3 days ago. http://www.overclock.net/xbox/142431-how-do-i-hear.html

You became a "pretty experienced Audiophile" very quickly.
