Our Mac mini, now almost 2 years old, is what we use to stream and listen to our library of classical and jazz music.
Our Harman Kardon Soundsticks are broken and sounding poorly. Replacements are ~$300.
Instead of replacing them, we own a pair of good quality passive bookshelf speakers which we are thinking to connect to the Mac mini. Our mini has 3.5mm stereo jack, USB A and C sockets.
What hardware do we need to connect our speakers to the mini?
Do we find a new pair of active speakers instead?
We are looking for guidance, product recommendations and pros and cons of each approach?
