    Use a coaxial audio-out cable and plug it into your hi-fi's Aux jack.

    Then set the Hi-Fi to Aux and enjoy.

    3.5mm jack to audio left and right surely. As you say connected to the amps auxilliary input, normally red and white audio connectors.

    That's the way I do it.

    Do soundcard's have co-ax connectors, forgive my ignorance.

    Did I say coaxial?

    What an idiot I am.

    Ignore me.

    And yes, it has to split at the end for the Aux jack.

    Actually you can use any analog(aka "line level") input on your receiver [except the turntable input].

    If your soundcard has a digital output you can connect that to a receiver with a digital input [via optical or coaxial cable].

    If your receiver is very far away from the computer, the analog signal will pick up interference and sound bad. Works for short distances though.

    I used a digital out with a coaxial cable hooked up to a dolby digital decoder then the receiver. Load up your playlist in Winamp and your set.
