You need a speaker amp of some sort to power that SRD-7. An integrated receiver will do nicely, if you've got the desk space for it. Heck of a lot cheaper than a dedicated Stax amp, too.

 

Then you connect the computer to the speaker amp, connect the SRD-7 to the speaker terminals, and connect the SR-7 to the SRD-7.

could you recommend me one under $200?

 

Thanks

Speaker amps aren't my forte, really.

 

I'd suggest just shopping on craigslist or possibly flipping through thrift stores for vintage receivers, particularly 1970s Sansui/Marantz/Pioneer/etc. stuff. They'll be heavy and bulky, but at least you'll be feeding the SRD-7 a nice, clean signal.

 

Other people just order cheap $40 Chinese-made "T-amps" and are happy with those, but I haven't tried one yet.

Some folks seem to have reasonable success using a cheaper t-amp. ( it is a class of small amplifier )  Your best bet would be to ask about in here with that pricerange.

Ignore the "entry level " part :wink_face:
