    any sound card will do, all you need is a specific lead. one with a headphone connection on one end and a phono on the other.

    If ur stereo/hifi supports it then digital (either optical or SPDIF) would be worth looking into

    are you sure about that since most dvd players have these phono connectors to output sound not input it.

    What you need is a 3.5 mm jack to phone lead. mine cost me about 20 for a rather long gold plated one.

    Of course you would need phono inputs on your stereo.

    yes my dvd player is actually a home theature system, and has 3 different settings for inputting devices. it uses the classic rca red and white wires. but i'm buying an adapter from radioshack tonight, i tried to make my own but cut the wire wrong and cut the bass cable, so i have no bass with it. but thats fine for now since in half an hour i'll have it all hooked up and working.

    thanks for your help ppl!
