I would like to connect my Mac mini to my analog amplifier as my harmon audio Soundsticks (originals) have taken a turn for the worst and are beyond economical repair. Instead of replacing them, I’d like to explore something and use my audio system speakers.
An easy way would be to connect the Mac mini headphone 3.5mm stereo output to the auxiliary input on the amplifier. I understand the sound quality is mediocre and I can do better.
I also read somewhere that I could use an old Apple airport express and send the signal wirelessly to the audio system. I hear that can be unstable and also lower audio quality.
I have usb a and c sockets on the Mac mini. I don’t know what cable or equipment I need to use to connect those for audio purposes to the amplifier. Is that even possible? I am seeking solutions and ideas. Thank you.
